A new high-powered ATV ' the SMC MBX 850 ' has been launched with one eye on users in the work and utility sector.

Offering both two and four-wheel drive, as well as automatic CVT transmission, the SMC MBX 850 is aimed at sporting road and off-road riders as well as to the work sector where rapid cross-country transport is required.

Powered by a new generation, fuel-injected, liquid-cooled V-Twin engine, the MBX produces balanced and user-friendly high power and torque to ensure easy progress in the toughest of conditions.

Electronic power steering also comes as standard, as do 14-inch wheels fitted with quality Maxxis tyres, independent double A-Arm suspension all round and hydraulically operated disc brakes.

SMC has been producing ATVs for more than 25 years but has only recently been marketed under its own brand name here in the UK through specialist distributor Dualways.

The SMX MBX 850 is available in Black or Blue and the rrp is £8199 inc VAT, plus on the road charges.
