My dad thinks it is the coolest thing he has seen in a long time, and really wants one. It is classified as a motorcycle, so drivers/passengers under 18 must wear helmets. There is also a truck model.

Also note that the one shown is a preproduction model, and the interior fit and finish in that one is subpar compared to the production model. I read some reviews (only a few as of now) and I am finding out that they are fairly rugged and move pretty well for 17hp.
