KAYO RELEASES S200 YOUTH SXS
RZR 200 PERFORMANCE STRIKE 250R PRICE
Kayo has been manufacturing youth ATVs for more than a decade. New for 2024, Kayo enters the youth SxS market with its S200 designed for kids 10 and older, and the S200 will outperform most existing youth UTVs. Width is 10 inches wider than the RZR 200 with dual A-arm front suspension and trophy truck-like front-facing tie-rods with rack-and-pinion steering. Wheelbase is 74.8 inches, ground clearance is 9.1 inches, front and rear travel is 11 inches. It has 1.25-inch by 0.095-inch tubing with boxed and gusseted mounting points for its six-point roll cage, and it has a rear differential and CV axles instead of chain and sprockets for more durability and ground clearance. Wide front and rear A-arms have ball joints that can be pressed out and replaced.
Power is provided by a 196.2cc air- and oil-cooled SOHC single-cylinder engine mounted sideways behind the seats for better weight distribution and a CVT with dual shoulder-high snorkels. Horsepower is 13.41; the Hisun Strike 250R puts out 16.09, while the RZR 200 has 11.1. The oil cooler also sets between the bucket seats for increased air-flow and cooling, plus there is also an electric fan blowing on the rear side of the cylinder fins. The S200 has a carburetor instead of EFI, and the choke knob is on the dash above the ignition key.
Racey bucket seats have 10-position adjustment (6-inches) and four-point harnesses, allowing parents to fit in the spacious cabin. An over molded 13.8-inch steering wheel has universal six-bolt pattern and adjustable five-position tilt, but it takes a wrench to adjust. A digital gauge rides in the center of the dash with analog tach and digital speedometer plus an easy-to-read fuel gauge. Fuel capacity is 3.9 gallons (15L). T here are toggle switches for ignition cut-off, horn, lights, and turn signals.
The S200 has four LED headlights with projector lenses and four-wheel hydraulic disc brakes with 6.9-inch front rotors and 6.3-inch rear rotor, and steel wheels have a 4x110mm pattern like the RZR 200. A roof is standard, as is a trailer hitch, and the passenger grab bar is padded. The S200 has an adjustable throttle limiter, safety flag, and LED tail- and brake-light.
The Kayo S200 is loaded with a lot of features and performance for $5,599; the Hisun Strike 250R is also $5,599, and the Polaris RZR 200 is $6,799.
