Ultra Bike 2×2 from Robo Systems is built to tackle almost everything. This two-wheel-drive electric utility bike is not only fit for dirt, sand, and snow but can also handle aquatic terrain. But for water, you have to shift it into amphibious mode. 

This heavy-weight modular motorcycle has a 1KW motor in huge balloon tires at the front and rear. For making it an all-terrain bike, the shock absorbers are placed on the rear wheel.

The bike is equipped with a LiFePo4 battery pack. It is a waterproof energy source and is designed to last more than 2,000 cycles. The bike can sustain the extreme demands of -4 to 140 °F (-20 to – 60 °C). The battery carries 1.6 kWh which can help you travel a distance of 40 miles (64 km). 

Interestingly, one can also put an 800-watt inverter/generator in the open space in space in the frame where the fuel tank is kept. So one can use it to charge the bike’s battery on the move while driving and extend its range. It can be used to run your power tools as well.

Robo Systems discovered an innovative way to carry fuel onboard. For this, they used the space in the huge rims of the tires of the Ultra Bike. Each tank is capable of carrying some 5.3 gals (20 l) of liquid.
