Battle Approved Motors Reveals Its All-Electric, All-Terrain UTV Concept

Jul 22, 2021

Founded by American filmmaker, entrepreneur, and former professional BMX rider Chris James, Battle Approved Motors — or “BAM” for short — is an ambitious startup that’s looking to nab a piece of the increasingly bustling ATV and UTV market — which is expected to reach $12 billion by 2027 — with the debut of an all-new fully-electric and race-ready machine known as the “R101.”

Developed by James and a team of experts over the last half-decade, the R101’s aim is to bolster existing safety and performance standards while simultaneously offering a lighter carbon footprint. Still, just in the conceptual phases of design, the R101 will be constructed around a tubular Chromoly chassis paired with a long-travel suspension and a generously sized lift kit. Thus far, BAM has already received over $800,000 in funding from more than 1,000 investors, suggesting there’s a very decent likelihood that the R101 will ultimately see the light of production within the next few years.
