    Someone finally put up a first ride Video on the Ryker. Seems like a pretty favourable review. Check it out.

    Default Video's

    The video's are the same, but watch the second one because it's of better quality Sorry but I wasn't impressed by the tester. Lots of no info air time, great scenery, but I wasn't watching this for the landscape.... JMHO Mike

    The tester wasn't a lot of info.

    On the other hand, the Ryker looks like a real home run.

    I would be willing to bet that it is a real blast on these fantastic roads here in the Smokey Mountains.

    Can't wait to try one out.

    I though it was pretty good for a first ride video, can't wait for some more in depth reviews. Roll on power at freeway speeds is still an unknown but from what I've seen so far I'm not sure that is going to be an issue with the 900.

    Yeah, I wish he would have shown more roll on power and top speed or higher end power. Hard when you're riding in a group. He did say a tank of gas was expected to last about 200 miles so that means about 35 mpg

    Dang it! That was just up the road here west of Denver! Looks like an arrive and drive event. If so probably paced by a BRP rep or local dealer, so no opportunity to wring it out.

    The video (though not perfect) is worth watching. A lot of information can be gleaned.

    The Ryker will be a hit for many. Reminds me of the bare bones type bikes we had in the 60's. Many built for price point and not for much else.

    We figured out how to deck them out...and the rest is history.

    Here is another one worth watching, couple new nuggets like the brake pedal is also adjustable up and down on the fly, close up of the glove box USB ports and a cap-less gas cap which I hope is lockable but doesn't say lol

    WOW- Adjustable Brake pedal Height - This is Major for Safety around Twisties so your foot is always in the proper position without buying different length bars??? And can be adjustable for the next rider without a tool!!

    Default Good review

    Thanks for sharing your review. This sounds like it could be a good alternative for someone who wants to ride three wheels but really only needs something for close in, local type riding. With no power steering I'm not sure I would want to try a long haul or cross county trip though.

    Don't be too sure......

    I have a good friend that road a Cushman 5HP single speed Scooter coast to coast and border to border back in the late 60's

    I one time about '64-'65 I road a Mobeylette Moped the 550 miles from Lubbock, Tx. to Houston, Texas.

    The Ryker will be like a Cadillac on a trip like those above as compared to either the Cushman or Moped.


    Its all fun and an adventure.
