AGFEST Tasmania attracts huge crowds and 2016 will be no different
The company who changed the game in the ATV agricultural market with their fully optioned vehicles at prices Aussies could afford, today announced it would use AGFEST as the launch pad for its newest ATV, the X5 Farm Spec.
Director, Michael Poynton said AGFEST was the perfect place to introduce agricultural customers to the company’s game changing ATV and expects high demand and honest feedback from AGFEST attendees.
“The Farm Spec model this one replaces was an instant sales success when it was released in 2012 - and for good reason.
“It was the only ATV at the time to come fully loaded with the accessories our customers were looking for as standard.” Said Poynton.
The accessories, valued at $2,600 include wrap-around protector bars, alloy bash plates, A-Arm protectors, heavy duty winch, tow kit and handguards.
“As ATV’s became more technologically advanced with electronic power steering and EFI systems over the years, the Farm Spec was given a makeover this year.” Said Poynton
Based on the success of the game changing X400 ATV which was released in late 2015 and the popularity of the X550 ATV, CFMoto are convinced the new look X500 Farm Spec will make an immediate impact in the Aussie agricultural segment.
The X500 Farm Spec offers a new 500cc EFI engine, 14” six ply tyres, electronic power steering, winch, tow pack, wrap around protector bars and alloy A-Arm protectors.
With a ride away price of $8,490, the X5 Farm Spec is more affordable than its competitors and comes standard with a list of accessories generally purchased aftermarket.“The 450cc plus segment continues to be the ATV of choice for most Aussie Farmers and we believe we have the right machine with plenty of potential to shake things up in this segment.” Poynton says.
