KYMCO USA has teamed up with the IndyCar Series as an official partner.

“We are extremely pleased to be involved in IndyCar Series racing,” says Eric Bondy, president of KYMCO USA. “It’s a thrilling form of American racing with an established fan base that is only getting bigger. This gives us an excellent opportunity to expose our brand to new customers around the country and throughout the world.”

The multi-year partnership will make KYMCO the official scooter and off-road utility vehicle of the IndyCar Series. KYMCO will also have official status with Firestone Indy Lights, the premier ladder series for drivers and teams striving to compete in the IndyCar Series.

“We couldn’t be more pleased to have a company like KYMCO come on board with the IndyCar Series,” says Greg Gruning, vice president of sales for the Indy Racing League. “KYMCO manufactures quality products that the IndyCar Series staff will rely on throughout the course of the IndyCar Series season.”

Throughout 2009, fans may notice IndyCar Series personnel using KYMCO Super 8 150cc scooters and UXV 500 4X4 utility vehicles for various needs in and around the race venues as well as at its headquarters in Indianapolis.

The Super 8 features racing-inspired sportbike looks. It’s powered by a fuel-efficient 150cc, SOHC air-cooled engine and features front disc brakes, and KYMCO's CVT transmission.
