The introduction of a 3 position electrical adjustment rear suspension system presents cutting-edge technology with the comfort of riders in mind. Features such as ABS brake systems, keyless remote ignition, antitheft, tire pressure monitoring, larger storage capacity for up to 2 helmets, and more will be integrated into KYMCO's newest models, specifically the MyRoad 700i.
