  1. Welcome to UTVBOARD.

  3. Nikola Powersports has finalized the specifications and design for the four-seater UTV dubbed the Nikola Zero. The Nikola Zero UTV is an all-electric, 400-volt plug-in, off-road and potentially street-ready vehicle. Dealerships can begin reserving production units starting in January. Starting at $35,000, the UTV will come with two performance options: 415 hp and 3,675 ft. lbs. of torque and 555 hp and 4,900 ft. lbs. of torque. The UTV will also have three battery options: 75kWh, 100kWh and 125kWh, with the largest battery option giving the Nikola Zero more battery storage than a Tesla P100D. The 125kWh battery package can deliver 200 miles of range in 4x4 off-road mode. “The Nikola Zero will be the first UTV to come with optional Anti-Lock Braking Systems (ABS), stability control, anti-roll-over, traction control and torque vectoring. Normally these options are reserved for high-end sports cars and not normally found in UTVs. We have worked hard to make these UTVs street legal, and in many states, you may be able to drive the Nikola Zero UTV to work,” said Trevor Milton, Nikola’s CEO. “Once you test drive the Nikola Zero, you will want to trade in your current UTV. No other competitor UTV can match the Nikola Zero’s performance. We are not talking about a few seconds faster than the competition, we are talking about laps faster, with speeds up to 0-60 in 3.9 seconds with four passengers inside,” added Milton. Standard features include: 100-percent electric power steering, 20-inch front and rear suspension travel, 14-inch ground clearance, 62-inch wide frame, four independent electric motors, 32-inch tires, bead lock wheels, tow hitch, over the air software updating, 10-inch infotainment center display, 7-inch instrument cluster, multiple color options, IP 67 waterproofing, LED headlights, taillights and custom seats, all with a two-year warranty. Optional features include: 555 HP upgrade, street legal package (some states), 4x4 torque vectoring system, ABS, anti-roll protection, traction control, front and rear 4500 lb. winches, factory audio system, 15 kW power export at 110/220V, 4kW Solar 400-volt DC Charger, LED interior lighting, rider profiles, front windshield, mirrors, cameras and a four-year extended warranty package. A dealer ride and drive event is being planned in December in St. George, Utah. Dealers can contact [email protected] for applications and to attend the ride and drive event. RSVPS are required.
  4. That is pretty cool. Check out Showmetheparts catalog https://www.autopartsforum.com/topic/23-showmetheparts-catalog/ if you haven't seen it already. It has many part numbers from various auto parts manufacturers and a very good cross reference. It may help when looking for something that has an automotive original intended use part #.
  5. Polaris has issued a recall on approximately 16,800 RZR 170 recreational off-highway vehicles (ROVs) when it was found that the fuel tank neck can crack or the wiring harness can overheat or short circuit, posing fuel leak and fire hazards. This recall involves all model year 2015 through 2017 youth RZR 170 recreational off-highway vehicles (ROVs). The recalled ROVs have two seats and were sold in red, blue and white. For model year 2015 ROVs, “Polaris” is printed on the front grill, “RZR” is printed on the rear panel, and “170” is printed on the front panel. For model year 2016 and 2017 ROVs, “Polaris” is printed on the front grill and on the rear panel, and “RZR” is printed on the front panel. The VIN is printed on the frame on the driver’s side front wheel well. Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled ROVs and contact Polaris to schedule a free repair. Polaris is contacting all known purchasers directly. Consumer may contact Polaris at 800-765-2747 from 7 a.m. through 7 p.m. CT Monday through Friday, or online at www.polaris.com and click on “Off Road Safety Recalls” for more information.

  6. Most UTVs/ATVs need to have additives in the oil so putting regular branded automotive motor oil isn't usually recommended. For years I have always used Valvoline 4 stroke ATV oil but any of the ATV type oils are usually sufficient unless a manufacturer recommends otherwise. 😁
  7. Everything through yesterday 5 pm or so EST.
  8. You may notice that some posts, messages, and other activity are missing from the last 20-24 hours. We had an issue with our database and recovered a back up. We apologize for the inconvenience.
  9. I have to agree, that is very cool. I'm lucky enough that my next door neighbor every year has a huge fireworks show for his family and friends, so we just usually BBQ and sit out on the deck and watch the show above our house, it's pretty insane. It gets so crazy with the fireworks that the kids have to go inside cause its so loud...but what a celebration!
  10. Please stop using status updates as chat. It's your current status/what's on your mind, etc. not a reply to someone else...

  13. I deleted the other topic in the UTV general section which was identical to this. ?
