    Default Please post some Rokon Pictures

    We have recently starting selling ROKONs and I'd like to see some pictures of them in action. I'll add a few to get things started. Please let us know if you have any questions.

    Is the airplane pic photoshopped? I wouldn't think a Cub could carry a heavy bike like that. Cool pic though.

    The new 4 stroke trail breakers are 218 lbs (dry weight). The older 2 strokes are a few lbs lighter.

    There's a guy selling a big-red 3-wheeler on Craigslist in Homer, with a pretty skookum looking trailer for $1000 right now. Poor man's Rokon, I suppose.

    If the thing runs at all, it's a killer deal. I would think it would serve your purposes.

    Haha! Someone's either a big Rokon fan or taken a corner a little too fast on Big Red!

    Lol grew up on a big red. But in no way see it as being a comparision to the versatility of the rokon.

    I need more information on the air intake snorkel and the seat on this bike! How well does the engine breath with the snorkel? What modifications had to be done for the snorkel and the Victory seat?

    The seat is a victory motorcycle seat and a few simple brackets that had to be welded up to make it work. The snorkel kit is just a hose clamp, a hose and a filter from a pitster pro dirt bike. It breaths fine. We also studded the tires, put on a tach, added a led light bar and put some ammo boxes on it.

    Most folks don't know that President George W. Bush is also a Rokon owner. W was given a Rokon by the king which built under license in Jordan. Photos are of him at home on the ranch.

    Muskeg,
    Thanks for posting the pictures. That's some cool looking machines! How well does that trailer with the single tire work?

    These machines have been around for many years, why haven't they ever really taken off? Are they no good in the muddy, boggy areas? Seems like a 4x4 atv would be a lot more useful, for that kind of money. Is it really $8k? I suppose they might fill some small niche out there

    Roy, unlike 4-wheelers, they don't dig trails into a muddy, impassable mess. They tend to run right across muskeg very well without sinking in due to their much lower weight and when they do get into deep mud, the two-wheel drive comes in handy. They are something of a niche machine because they are a bike and therefore have to be balanced. On rough terrain they are a workout. You would be surprised however at what they actually can haul. Where they really shine is in hilly, rough country due to their ability to climb and side hill. They can climb a 60% grade or over rocks and fallen logs like no wheeler can. Areas without 4-wheeler trails are another great area for Rokons due to their much smaller width and light weight; you simply drive between trees or follow game trails.

    The price may seem high for a new one but used ones can be found. For your money, you're getting a bike with unique capabilities that is made in the USA, is very easy to work on, and tend to run forever with very little maintenance. I can still buy both OEM and aftermarket parts for my 1968 model. Most Rokons built (since 1958) are still running! How much do you pay to maintain your 4-wheeler and how long do you have to wait to get it repaired? I am no mechanic and I can do all the work on my Rokons myself.

    To answer AK Power Sports/Marita S & S's question, single track trailers have some utility for lighter loads or long runs along established trails. For heavier loads, 2-wheeled trailers are better and if there are no trails, I prefer to drag a plastic cargo sled.
