Without fail, every couple of months some super-capable and wild-looking vehicle hailing from Russia starts making the rounds on the internet. For good reason, it looks like this month’s title-holder of ‘weird but awesome Russian vehicle’ is the Taurus 2×2 Adventure Motorcycle.
Designed to transport people quickly and easily over rough terrain, this small motorcycle is outfitted with a Honda GX-210 four stroke engine that delivers power to both front and back wheels for pushing and pulling power over muddy hills and through ravines. With just 7 horsepower and a top speed of 22 miles per hour, you won’t be able to get going too fast, but thanks to its relative light weight (192 pounds) and large balloon tires, you can float this across rivers just as easily as you can ride it down hills. While this looks perfect for taking out into the desert here in the west or up some snow-covered mountains this winter, the bike is currently only available in Russia. No need to fear, though, ATV enthusiasts, the company plans on retailing worldwide in the near future. [Purchase]
