If you buy a Jeep, they should give you one of these.

It would look a heck of a lot more impressive in their promo video if the rider didn't pedal at all on the ascent.

I didn't watch the video - and I'm sure this has a more powerful motor than mine (it better, for that price!) - but I can't make it up steep ascents without pedaling ... and trying to is a good way to burn out your motor.

How silly of us to think this new advocacy for e bikes on foot trails would lead to a slippery slope of bigger and more powerful electric motorcycles on our trails...

Can’t wait to run into some 80lb electric motorcycles on our hiking trails this winter :)

You're just an elitist jerk who doesn't think that people who aren't as physically gifted as you should be able to access and enjoy mother nature the way you can.

I must have missed all the advocacy for ebikes on "foot" trails ... all I've seen is advocacy for ebikes on bike trails.
Mine is only 65 lbs, but maybe I'll see you out there. 🤙

I want an electric quad. Yeah they make them but most look like crap and have very limited range for what I want to do. And are expensive for what they are.

Minus suspension & motor this thing is worth about $200 and that is being generous.

@RedRoxx44 I want everyone to have an electric quad. The woods would become 95% more peaceful and quiet.
