Rokon Motorcycle For Sale
There are many motorcycle manufacturers throughout the world, each with its own unique benefits. But most manufacturers produce bikes in the same set of styles, including cruisers, sportbikes, street bikes, enduros, etc. With many beautiful models for enthusiasts to explore, few of them are truly unique. But Rokon is one of those few.
Founded in Vermont in 1963, Rokon originally sold one motorcycle: the Trail-Breaker. Previously manufactured by California-based Nethercutt, the Trail-Breaker was a two-wheel-drive motorcycle designed for off-road use. However, this wasn’t a mere dirt bike. It had wide, chunky tires and a low riding position. As its name implies, it doesn’t just follow trails; it breaks them.
Rokon motorcycles use a variety of drive types to deliver power to the front and rear wheels simultaneously. Their earlier models utilized a 134cc West Bend motor, while newer models use Honda and Kohler motors. In addition to the main gas tanks, the wheels are hollow and serve as 2.5-gallon reserve tanks for longer outings.
Designed to tackle even the worst terrain, Rokon bikes are engineered entirely for torque. The actual top speed is 20 MPH on most models, although some can achieve 35 MPH. Due to various design features, most Rokon motorcycles are not street-legal in the United States. The lone exception is the Ranger, which is designed specifically as a dual-use bike.
