Kymco UXV 500 and Nitro Circus
Kymco UXV passes Nitro Circus Tests with flying colours!
In mid- 2010 Nitro Circus brought a breathtaking live stunt show to
Australia and the Kymco UXV 500 was the mount of choice for the crazy
antics of the Nitro Circus team. Nitro Circus purchased a Kymco UXV 500
side by side for use within the show and the machine was tested beyond
belief by the professional stuntmen and passed with flying colours!
Nitro Circus started as an American television series that featured
Travis Pastrana and his friends travelling around the world riding
dirtbikes, and performing death defying stunts. In 2010, the team
decided to take their show on the road and this has impressed Australian
crowds nationally and brought worldwide acclaim.
The likes of Travis Pastrana who has 14 X Games Medals and Blake Bilko
Williams who is the current X games FMX Champion were part of this
remarkable show. And of course, the Kymco UXV was a highlight in the
Kymco’s class leading suspension was put to the test, with the Nitro
Circus team jumping the UXV 500 over 10 metres in the air. While this
breath taking stunt is something that both Kymco and Nitro Circus insist
should not be tried at home, it did prove Kymco’s superior engineering,
reliability and stability. The wear and tear that the Nitro Circus team
put on the Kymco did not slow down its performance one bit and the
tough, sturdy machine performed each night without any trouble.
The Kymco UXV 500 is designed as a high powered utility made for farm
work with 36 horsepower and enough torque to complete the roughest of
The electronically activated differential lock provides maximum traction for the stickiest situations.
And there is no doubt the Nitro Circus team definitely put the UXV through its paces!
The UXV was also used for stunt practice on the television show Hey Hey
It’s Saturday, where the much loved Plucka Duck went for a ride and a
jump on the Kymco. Again, Kymco passed all the tests!
The reliability of Kymco ATVs has seen more and more farmers in
Australia and around the world turn to Kymco to get the job done.
If Kymco impressed the Nitro Circus team as they pushed the UXV to the
limits, then it is sure to impress farmers everywhere when working in
tough terrain as Kymco is designed to make hard work easy!
Kymco is a full member of the Federal Chamber of Automotive Industries
and shares the industry commitment to safety in ATV use. The stunts
performed by Nitro Circus were conducted by professional and trained
stuntmen in controlled conditions.
