KYMCO Scooters announces top cases from SHAD USA

KYMCO USA has announced an agreement with SHAD USA that will expand the accessories options available for KYMCO scooters. This exclusive partnership gives KYMCO USA dealers the ability to sell SHAD’s industry-leading line of top cases. It also calls for the two companies to develop a line of items branded exclusive by KYMCO.

Under the agreement, SHAD will develop a full line of cases with built-in backrests that will cover every KYMCO model, from the People 50 to the Xciting 500Ri and everything in between. SHAD will create a matching hard case for every color in the KYMCO scooter palette, as well as special mounting brackets to fit each model.

This will give all KYMCO owners an attractive and functional accessory option that is made specifically to fit their bike, and – with the backrest – increase rider comfort. The cases are lockable and feature top quality hinges, latches, and mounting hardware.

"We are very pleased to partner with SHAD, which, like us, is an innovative, aggressive, and quality-driven mover in the industry," said Al Golding, Accessories Manager for KYMCO USA. "This enables our dealers to offer another line of best-in-class products, and we will be working with SHAD and our dealers to develop even more products with broad customer appeal."

According to Michael Schuiten, Managing Director of SHAD USA, "We approached KYMCO as we have been impressed with what they have accomplished over the past five years, clearly establishing a leadership position. Like us, their focus is on delivering a high quality product, and this agreement gives us the opportunity to leverage off their dealer network and distribution system, which is second to none. We are confident that this joining of forces will bring synergies to both our enterprises."

Their joint agreement provides an opportunity for both SHAD and KYMCO USA to continue to deliver highly engineered and innovative products for the powersports market.
