EcoRider Hippo Motorcycle
No, it's not a Scottish joke, but a real and nifty all purpose motorcycle produced by Scottish motorcycle manufacturer EcoRider.

The motorcycle in question is called the Hippo, and you can get it in a normal petrol or in DIESEL version.

The Hippo motorcycle is one of those all-purpose types, where you can go anywhere you want to without really needing to be an expert motocrossers or enduro specialist. In other words, it's a serious, but fun motorcycle (i.e. a seriously fun motorcycle).

With its extra wide front and rear tyres (23x11), your motorcycle can go through mud or uneven terrain as a Hummer would in the desert. Because of the extra wide tyres, you can also ride on fragile even surfaces such as golf links, since the motorcycle will not leave an impression on the grass. The weight of the motorcycle is evenly distributed.

There are two different versions available. A 175 cc petrol version and a 230 cc diesel one. Both are equipped with an electric starter. The petrol version weights 130 Kgs, while the diesel weights 150 Kgs.

The motorcycles are equipped with an automatic clutch, a torque converter, low, high and reverse gear. Finally, there's a heavy duty drive to the rear axle. With this setup, you'll be able to tow about 250 Kgs of freight behind you.

The motorcycles themselves are that pricey, considering what you get for them. The 175 cc petrol version costs UK£ 1,925, while the 230 cc diesel will set you back UK£ 2,425.

There are also a lot of options and accessories on this Hippo motorcycle. You can get different types of trailers, gun holder (UK£ 45), load racks, sledges, etc.

EcoRider Hippo Motorcycle
The applications of this fun motorcycle are numerous. Hunting, ground maintenance, farming, forestry, fire services, sport, leisure, etc etc.
