You want to conquer the great outdoors but your puny Toyota/Hyundai sedan ain’t gonna cut it. That’s when you bring in the big guns aka the Kiravan Expedition Vehicle. This monstrous monstrosity of a monster vehicle packs 260 hp, 700 ft-lb of torque and an 8 speed transmission all housed in a design based on the Mercedes-Benz Unimog.
A trailer comes attached in the rear giving you every single comfort you’d want. Office, kitchen, bathroom and sleeper. 6-wheel drive gets you 25 mph and the manufacturer even has a Kirabike bike to let you explore those smaller areas where the Kiravan can’t go.
Tricycles. They aren’t just for your pint-sized rugrats. Not when riders have the Verrado Electric Drift Trike ($450). It’s a tricycle that runs on that newfangled electricity you might have heard about. Get a heavy duty 20″ front wheel with 10″ PVC pipe, go-kart rear wheels. Perfect amazing trike drifting skills and give Junior another reason to admire you.
Bigger is better, and in ‘Murica, we want moar. ATVs did so well with four wheels, so perhaps they would do better with 6. Can-Am does just that to their Outlander 6×6 ATV. This six-wheelin’ beast uses its additional rear axle to pump up its cargo capacity of its rear bed to 700 pounds. This will crush any puny four-wheeler out there. Pssshh, four wheels. Weak.
Two great inventions collide into one Centaur-looking beast. Well, the upper half of a Centaur. It also looks like a sea horse. That’s besides the point.
If $4,000 is chump change, put it down on these custom hand-made people movers. Catalonian designers Bel & Bel took actual Vespa scooter parts and mashed them up on the Segway PT. They call the end result the Zero Scooter.
It carries someone up to 400 lbs, hits a top speed of 12 mph and a range of about 20 miles. Be prepared to get plenty of attention on the streets.
One day, teleportation will become the norm. And Google will still be able to track you even then. For now, transportation will still mostly depend on circular objects called ‘wheels’. Take the Onewheel for example.
This hoverboard-like device lets you glide around the city like Marty McFly. Tilt forward and back to control your ride. The unit hits up to 12 mph with a range of 4-6 miles. Recharging takes about 20 mins to 2 hours. It looks like a fun toy that beats walking like the plebeians with their ‘feet’ and all.
Look up in the air! It’s a bird, it’s a plane! It’s you flying in your own Parajet SkyRunner. This brings new meaning to ‘off-road’. The SkyRunner melds the thrills of all-terrain racing with the exhilaration of gliding through the air. Hit 62 mph in just 4.3 seconds and then enter flight mode to escape the other ATVs chasing you. Pretend to be James Bond, paragliding away from your enemies. All this adventure for only $119,000.
Planning on off-roading it in Syria anytime soon? Or maybe you just wanna never change a flat tire again? Either way, the Polaris Sportsman WV850 H.O. has you covered. The WV850’s non-pneumatic tires are all levels of rugged; they’ve been tested to take AK47 ballistic damage and barely wince. Of course the military had this technology first, but now Polaris has dubbed it TerrainArmor and it can be yours to tow almost two tons with, or just frustrate the hell out of terrorists with subpar aim.
