The Kymco AK 550 Premium scooter features streamlined modern styling, and is jam-packed with the latest technology, including an electronic throttle, cruise control, traction control, multistage heated grips, cornering ABS, the choice between two riding modes: Standard & Rain, plus an innovative electronically adjustable windshield and upgraded daytime-running headlights.

The AK 550’s keyless start remains, but the starter button has now been replaced by a central ignition button on the Premium iteration – positioned in a new centre console reserved for the most frequent bike functions – that also automatically unlocks the electric steering lock. The console, with its ‘piano-like’ keys, also operates the fuel cap, opens the seat, and provides mileage updates.

The central circular display houses the interactive and smartphone-activated Noodoe entertainment and navigation system. The instrumentation is now brighter and with a much higher definition.

The AK550’s 550cc twin-cylinder engine now complies with Euro 5 emission standards, with peak power rated at 51hp (37.5kW). Other notable features include a 14.5-litre fuel tank, capacious underseat storage, 785mm seat height and a full-colour LED digital screen plus two USB ports.

There’s a choice between two new contemporary liveries – Gloss Black or Calm Blue.

The Kymco AK 550 Premium is available now for a Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price of $14,490 Ride Away plus on-road costs and is backed by Kymco’s 3-year factory warranty program.
For further information, interested customers are encouraged to contact their local Kymco scooter dealer.
