Rogue Power Ripper
Electric adult scooters are excellent for cruising in the concrete jungles of a modern city. But where the asphalt ends and the rugged earth begins, only the Rogue Power Ripper has the bragging rights to conquer the terrain. If the e-scooter is the equivalent of a Bentley Continental, then the Ripper is a Wrangler Jeep.
The Ripper ATV features extra-fat tires that grip the earth like a vise. Rogue Power also included a T-shaped handlebar that folds down into the chassis of the ATV for optimum storage. Integrated into the handlebar are a number of basic controls for turning, accelerating, and stopping the ATV. Unlike e-scooters, the Ripper comes with four wheels and an advanced suspension system. Rogue Power also engineered the shocks to be adjustable. It allows you to make the necessary fine-tuning before you conquer a trail.
This is not an electric ATV, though. The power that an electric motor generates may not be enough to propel the 212-lb Ripper across the most rugged of terrains. Instead, Rogue Power utilized the power of a lawn mower engine from Honda. The 163-cc single-cylinder, four-stroke engine provides 4.3 horsepower to get you where you want to go. The engine revs up to 3,600 RPM, relying on 7.1 lb ft of torque. It is also air-cooled and carbureted for simplicity.
Most ATVs are large. The Ripper isn’t. It only measures about 52 inches from the front grille to the rear. It is compact enough that you can fit three Rippers in the back of your Ford F-150. Of course, loading them up onto your truck bed is another story.
The Rogue Power Ripper ATV is equal parts capable and fun. It is a motorized skateboard that behaves like a Jeep Wrangler. It is as capable on paved roads as it is on rugged terrain.
