Rokon Trail-Breaker: Offroad Giant
If a 4x4 just doesn't give you that open-air thrill, this motorbike - that floats, climbs mountains and crosses rivers with the capacity to carry 2 ½ gallons of water, fuel, or other liquids - most certainly will. The Rokon Trail-Breaker ($6,975), the second oldest continuously produced motorcycle in America, is nothing short of an off-road giant. It weighs in at 218 lbs., powered by a 208cc 7hp Kohler engine with three speed clutchless transmission and 2-wheel drive. The Rokon’s hollow aluminum wheels enable the machine to float if empty. Alternatively they can be filled with 2 ½ gallons of water, fuel, or other liquids. On land - It climbs quite literally anything you put in front of it.
Reliable? Most Trail-Breakers ever built are still running. And the ones built today are even better because they have solid state ignition, sealed gear cases and improved frame design. The company says that they routinely receive requests to have older machines rebuilt instead of replaced, so strong is the owner’s affection. Visit them at www.rokon.com.
