You will have probably seen coverage, like on our site, of the Rokon Open Rokon link in a new window 2-wheel drive motorcycle (link Open link in a new window). The Rokon is small, compact and has a 2 wheel drive system, allowing you to go almost anywhere. It's amazing, but there's even better.

Tarus

The Russian Tarus Open Tarus link in a new window looks and feels like the Rokon. Like the Rokon it has a 2-wheel drive system allowing you to ride the motorcycle anywhere. But what's more interesting is a) its weight: 47 to 50 kg and b) it floats on water! and c) surprise ... watch the video!

Tarus

Just have a look at the video below. That thing is so flexible and light, it can go anywhere, and if you can't go there, just pick it up and carry it wherever it needs to go. But watch the video, around the 1:50 mark you'll see something else that is amazing.



They are planning on two versions, each with a different engine. The top speed is 60 kph, and fuel consumption is 1.2 liters per hour. The motorcycle is still in production concept stage and will be sold as DIY kits, but they are looking at selling this for around 35,000 Russian Rubles (which if my conversion is correct amounts to around US$1000).

Tarus

If you're interested, contact them (mtv-tarus at mail.ru).
