I wanted to post this since I think this is really cool for one... And i really believe it has military applications for a compact mule to haul quick supplies or one person. Even a sled in arctic snow..

80% sure it's a dupe.

Interesting, of course you can militarize just about anything, toss a machine gun on the handlebars and you're good to go. But then again I'd rather have a full size vehicle with armor for military use.

Looks good, especially for use in rugged terrain that may be difficult to access with conventional land equipment, as well as for small group insertion. Give it a remote control, and this machine could serve as a base/drivetrain for many of the current robotic platforms out there.

Yes, please, lets make the Army more out of fucking shape.

I think it would be awesome for FOBBITs to cruise the boardwalk to get their Timmy Hortons and Pizza hut.

Major dupage, but great for EOD guys to make approaches, injured evac, perimeter patrol, etc. Needs a snorkel built into the the top of the handlebars so that going through a puddle won't choke it out.

What type of fuel does it run on? What is the range and maint requirements?

No way that is mature enough in its design to be fielded in any sort of capacity, not to mention how god awful uncomfortable that would be to ride for more than a couple 100 yards in rough terrain
