The Kayo brand was launched in 2002. There was a void in the market for well-built, reasonably priced ATVs and Dirt Bikes. We decided to change that. Our in-house team designed, developed, and manufactured those early models which we sold on the European market. The demand increased, and we started branching out internationally.
2002 - Kayo Motor is established by an engineer who had been working for HONDA’s China division for over 10 years. Kayo is the first company to sell Chinese designed and manufactured Pit Bikes to the European market.
2004 - Kayo expands it’s operations and builds a new factory capable of building high-quality pit bikes and ATVs.
