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:
Rokon’s basic, no-frills style. This one doesn’t have hollow wheels and is the cheapest in the range.
This is basically their fleet model, designed to take one or two people over difficult terrain. Trail-Breakers have been used by the US military, the forest service, fishing and hunting officers, and so on.
This one has a 12 “x 32” rear rack, long enough to carry a chainsaw or similar sized tools. Ideal for agricultural, forestry or utility work in places where you cannot fit a truck.
The Ranger is a street-approved version of the Trail-Breaker, equipped with the necessary gauges, lights, tires, mirrors and horn.
Basically the Trail-Breaker in camouflage.
This has an LED headlight, a “power socket” for charging devices, an on-board maintenance kit, an on-board survival kit and a rear storage rack. The Rokon for Preppers model highlights one characteristic that all have or lack, depending on how you look at it: All Rokons are “EMP proof.” The bike is carburized and is not controlled by any computer technology â. If the electric start is off, you can start it like a lawn mower.
Here is a group of enthusiasts putting their Rokons to the test:
