    I wonder where He got His styling cues from …………… Massey Fergusson maybe ??? ……The video isn't absolutely clear on this , but it doesn't look like He has to STEER it to get it to turn ….. it behaves more like a conventional Mtc. ….Kudo's for the mechanicals …..body none …..Mike

    Looked like it was a bit cumbersome to handle..... at least to me. And, it is butt ugly..... My guess is that the guy who made it has a background working on tractors..... Jim

    The designer needs to take a cue from Raymond Loewy. Or just about anybody else!

    I like it. I like the brute force, purposeful look of it. No unnecessary refinement here.

    mmmmm, no thanks. If I were going that route, it would be with the Yamaha Niken. Still not a particularly attractive machine, but way better looking than the one in the video.

    200K? Ouch! Nice effort, needs a bit of refinement. And power, ABS, brakes, traction control, etc

    It's not just you.

    Who came up with $200,000? Might have been the development cost.
