POLOKWANE – The X-Rider was originally introduced a year ago as a limited run of just over 700 units.

Due to popular demand among South African bakkie fans, the Isuzu KB X-Rider returns as a permanent fixture in the line-up, offering enhanced value and stand out styling for customers.

Westvaal Polokwane, one of 22 Westvaal dealerships in South Africa, has a wide range of Isuzu KB bakkies available including the newly added Isuzu X-Rider.

The most obvious visual cues (this package is unique to the X-Rider) are the diamond-cut 18-inch alloy wheels, the Red Isuzu centre caps, black bumper guard with integrated fog lamps, tubular side steps, sports bar combo in black with X-Rider decals, blacked-out B-pillars and the low-profile 255/60 Grabber AT all-terrain tyres.

Consumers can now choose from 19 KB derivatives in three body types, the newest addition to the range officially badged as the KB 250 X-Rider 4×2 Double Cab.

With 100kW and 320Nm, this common rail direct injection turbodiesel gives performance in keeping with the X-Rider’s sporty and recreational positioning.

At R388 400 the newcomer in the KB-range represents a unique blend of versatility and comfort, plus a stand-out-from-the-crowd attitude.
