One of the worlds leading powersports brands, KYMCO’s mission is to create personal vehicles that “Win the Hearts” of consumers all over the world !
KYMCO was founded in 1964 by Mr. Guang-Shu Ko, following an agreement with Mr. Soichiro Honda. KYMCO started out with a technology transfer from Honda, Japan and with the technical know-how gained from Honda, KYMCO became one of Honda’s high quality overseas manufacturing facilities. As the relationship developed over the next two decades, Honda increased its business interest in KYMCO and became a significant shareholder of KYMCO.
The first model manufactured by KYMCO was the C200, launched in 1964. The Hao Mai 125, manufactured from 1990 to 2008, was the first model to sell over 1 million units. In 1992 KYMCO began selling products independently from Honda and marketed under the KYMCO brand. In 2003, after 28 years of close collaboration with Honda, KYMCO acquired back Honda’s business interest in KYMCO and focused on developing and marketing KYMCO’s own brand globally.
KYMCO’s corporate headquarters is located in Kaohsiung, the second largest city in Taiwan. Over the past 50 years, its corporate campus has expanded to an area covering more than 2 million square feet (188,300 square meters), encompassing office buildings as well as manufacturing, testing, research and development facilities. KYMCO currently operates in 104 countries, all over the world in; Asia, Europe, Africa, America, Oceania and has 11 wholly owned subsidiary companies.
