If only they sold in the USA, 50mph top speed and 56mile range. Would qualify as a motorcycle for most US states. Small enough even for a smaller toy hauler and only about 1000lb weight.

A little to big for our rig and a sketchy history of never getting into production...

But could make an interesting toy for a larger toy hauler
- Enclosed, so rain/cold/hot not a big issue.
- Street Legal
- 9" clearance to the body.
- Sporty performance

Now if only they don't fold before actually going into production like they did the last time.

How about a Ural, russian motorcycle, 3 wheel drive with sidecar. Very simple machines and indestructible

Last year we purchased a trike, it's still in
florida wasn't expecting not to be able to get down there this winter and missed not having it this summer so we traded in our fifth wheel for our toy hauler, now we'll be able to enjoy both!!(trike is about 1000lbs)

Check out the FUV at arcimoto.com I saw a man trailering his at a campground, very interesting, made in Eugene, OR.

I've seen them before on the web...have they actually gone into production? That one would be doable for out little toy hauler.

Lots of these things out on the web but it seems like none of the viable enclosed models actually make it into production. (slingshot and spyder look fun but will be of limited use except in dry warm weather).

The one I saw was a production model (I presume) and he was scooting around the campground with it. He wanted to take it to Mt. St. Helens but it was one of those smoky days and decided not to. The owner did say it took a long time to receive his but blamed Covid in part. His had a golf bag carrier on his and said he had side windows at home. The carrier was just to get the bag to the course as it is too heavy to ride in on the course. My initial impression was that it was well built with a lot of content. I wondered at the time how a company could design, manufacture and sell such a product for $16k and stay in business. I'm guessing they are more now.

Side by side or a Roxor.
Roxors aren’t totally street legal just like a sxs but you could slap a license plate on it and no one would give it a second glance.

I had to look up to see what a Roxor was. I've read enough of your posts to ask myself, "He isn't dumb enough to misspell RZR this badly, is he?" And no, you weren't. [emoticon]

We sure have a ton of fun with our SxS, but if the OP doesn't live somewhere with lots of trail access, then the SxS is a bad idea.

Dual sport (plated) bikes are a lot of fun and easy to load and unload.

^Agree on dual sports being great all around transportation and off road ability.
However seemed like OP was not really considering 2 wheelers.
You can’t license a Roxor as a true on road vehicle and I believe you’d have to add turn signals to “appear” compliant. But if one is into bending the rules, slap a set of license plates on it from, whatever, and a current tab and it won’t attract the attention of all but the most astute policemen, if any.
It’s governed to 55mph but that’s fixable, lol and can even get it with an auto trans albeit an expensive option.
Bottom line you’d be into it at least $20k, which is equivalent or less than a nice sXs but it could be stealth driven on the highway.
They’re super cool, but for my purposes, I’d buy or build a CJ 5 over a Roxor. One can buy a very nicely restored CJ5 for around $10k and be totally legal, but it’s a 3klb vehicle like the Roxor that would require a lot of garage weight capacity.
So maybe neither is a good option for the typical toy hauler?
