    • Nikola Powersports releases all-electric UTV

      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.

    • Desert hill climbs and stability test Hisun 250 all good.

      This weekend we took the Hisun 250 out for some hill climbs at Sycamore Creek outside of Phoenix. The machine hooked up better than I thought. I’m 185lbs and it had no problem climbing the small and medium hills. The 2” lift helped a ton along with the 22” rear tires that came stock on the 2018 models. There was a lot of grip climbing and enough power to pull some cool donuts in the loose stuff. Good times so far.     Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    • Hello, UTV noob from Southern California

      Hey all, I just purchased a uses UTV. Im a total noob when it comes to UTV's. I joined the blog because I bought a used 2015 Hisun Strike, but it has no manual and I can't find any info about it online, I was wondering if you guys could help me locate the manual and give me some pointers on being a UTV owner. I don't even know what version of Hisun Strike it is lol. I got it for super cheap, so I said "what the heck, might as well" and bought it. Any advice on where on the forum I can start asking questions? Thanks!

    • TEXTRON ACQUIRES ARCTIC CAT, REBRANDS BAD BOY OFF-ROAD

      TEXTRON ACQUIRES ARCTIC CAT, REBRANDS BAD BOY OFF-ROAD These are exciting times in the powersports industry, coming off Polaris’ acquisition of off-road–accessories giant 4 Wheel Parts, commercial utility vehicle company Textron has announced its acquisition of Minnesota-based recreational vehicle manufacturer Arctic Cat. While you may not be familiar with the Textron name itself, you’ll instantly recognize many of the names under the Textron umbrella, including E-Z-GO golf carts, Dixie Chopper and Jacobsen lawn mowers, Cushman utility vehicles, TUG aircraft tow tractors, Bell Helicopters, Cessna, and Beechcraft aircraft. In addition to the Arctic Cat acquisition, going forward, Bad Boy Off-Road, which Textron acquired in 2010, will be rebranded Textron Off-Road. Bad Boy gained recognition for its hybrid and electric side-by-side models, which became popular with hunters for their silent operation. The rebranded Textron Off-Road models will begin arriving in dealerships in April. Textron’s corporate headquarters are in Providence, Rhode Island. Textron Specialized Vehicles, the unit that will assume responsibility for Arctic Cat, is based in Augusta, Georgia. Arctic Cat’s manufacturing operations in Minnesota will remain intact. With the acquisition of Arctic Cat, Textron will have expansive coverage of the side-by-side and light utility vehicle market in both the commercial and consumer spaces.   Source: http://www.fourwheeler.com/news/1703-textron-acquires-arctic-cat-rebrands-bad-boy-off-road/
