2015 KYMCO UXV 450i Test Drive Review

2015 KYMCO UXV 450i Test Drive Review

Inside the cab you will find the usual gauges, including speedo, tachometer, trip meter, clock, temp and fuel. Kymco has added a new easier to use 4x4 switch and the parking brake is located on the dash as well. The parking brake is also equipped with a warning feature and will sound once you hit 8 MPH and accidentally leave the brake engaged.

The tilt steering wheel is a nice feature and offers some adjustment for drivers. The bench seats are surprisingly comfortable and the cab is very spacious for the rider and passenger. We had quite a lengthy test ride and didn’t feel fatigued or uncomfortable at all and felt like we could have driven the UXV450i all day long.

We recently had the opportunity to take the 2015 Kymco UXV450i for a test ride at Big Buck GNCC race location in Union, SC and we were very excited to see what this new line of budget priced UTV’s had to offer. There was a special seven mile course laid out for us that had plenty of terrain challenges, including some steep hill climbs, tight trails, mud, rocks and trees, what you would typically find at any GNCC race. We felt this was a good test for the machine as it featured anything you would also find out in the woods during regular recreational activities, which is what the UXV450i was built for.

The new Kymco UXV450i has a fuel injection system delivering fuel to the single overhead cam 443cc engine and puts out 33HP. The engine is the same one that is used in Kymco ATV’s but the internal gear sets have been changed to produce more power. It is not a high performance machine, but it had enough power for recreational purposes such as hunting, fishing, camping and just cruising the trails. It did bog down a bit on some of the steepest hills we decided to climb, but it still made it to the top.
