www.PowersportsBusiness.com Powersports Business • September 4, 2017 • 43 ATV/UTV Nikola Powersports has finalized the speci- fications and design for the four-seater UTV dubbed the Nikola Zero. The Nikola Zero UTV is an all-electric, 400-volt plug-in, off- road and potentially street-ready vehicle. Dealerships can begin reserving production units in January. Starting at $35,000, the UTV will come with two performance options: 415 hp and 3,675 ft. lbs. of torque and 555 hp and 4,900 ft. lbs. of torque. The UTV will also have three battery options: 75kWh, 100kWh and 125kWh, with the largest battery option giving the Nikola Zero more battery storage than a Tesla P100D. The 125kWh battery pack- age can deliver 200 miles of range in 4x4 off-road mode. "The Nikola Zero will be the first UTV to come with optional anti-lock braking sys- tems (ABS), stability control, anti-roll-over, traction control and torque vectoring. Nor- mally these options are reserved for high- end sports cars and not normally found in UTVs. We have worked hard to make these UTVs street legal, and in many states, you may be able to drive the Nikola Zero UTV to work," said Trevor Milton, Nikola's CEO. "Once you test drive the Nikola Zero, you will want to trade in your current UTV. No other competitor UTV can match the Nikola Zero's performance. We are not talking about a few seconds faster than the competi- tion; we are talking about laps faster, with speeds up to 0-60 in 3.9 seconds with four passengers inside." Standard features include: 100-percent electric power steer- ing, 20-inch front and rear suspension travel, 14-inch ground clearance, 62-inch wide frame, four inde- pendent electric motors, 32-inch tires, bead lock wheels, tow hitch, over-the-air software updating, 10-inch infotainment center display, 7-inch instrument clus- ter, multiple color options, IP 67 waterproofing, LED headlights, taillights and custom seats, all with a two-year warranty. Optional features include: 555 hp upgrade, street legal package (some states), 4x4 torque vectoring system, ABS, anti-roll protection, traction control, front and rear 4,500-pound winches, factory audio system, 15 kW power export at 110/220V, 4kW solar 400-volt DC charger, LED interior lighting, rider profiles, front windshield, mirrors, cameras and a four- year extended warranty package. A dealer ride and drive event is being planned in December in St. George, Utah. Dealers can contact sales@nikolapowers- ports.com for applications and to attend the ride and drive event. RSVPs are required. RIVAL MOTORSPORTS REVEALS NEW YOUTH ATVS Rival Motorsports has revealed two new youth ATV models. The MudHawk 6 and MudHawk 14 have both been developed to meet the unique needs of young riders. They are certified by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission for 6-year-old and older and 14-year-old and olderriders, respectively. Both models have a throttle limiter screw so parents can further limit perfor- mance until their young rider is ready for more. And beyond that, the MudHawk 6 comes standard with a remote engine shut- off key fob, so the supervising adult can shut the ATV down up to 50 feet way, if they feel the need.
