A sort of two-wheeled truck: the Roxon 2×2


Roxon is a New Hampshire company that has been around since 1958. They make an unusual type of vehicle: an all-wheel-drive motorcycle with big tires, 14-inch ground clearance, and a top speed of 35 mph. Single-cylinder on-time engine – only 208cc – that puts out 7 horsepower, but the thing can tow 2,000 pounds. Interestingly, the wheels are hollow drums, which can be left as is to provide flotation (so you won’t lose it. in a water accident) or filled with 2.5 gallons of additional fuel or water.

Roxon offers six different versions, all targeting different use cases:
