So, here’s the plan, man. You take an i3s, rip out all of the drivetrain, take the drivetrain from this bad boy and put it where the i3’s was. Lower it, give it wider wheels, brembos, box flares, and some Recaro seats with hemp covers or something like that. Three pedals, sequential transmission riotbox that revs to… Read more
B-b-b-bad to the bone!
Bad in the sense that they’re AWESOME!!!
Agreed this is not a jalopnik writer. He should move over to life hacker or something.
Lol. They literally linked the Lucid 9 second quarter-mile article in this one and the tone could not be any more night and day. I’m sorry but this is a bit much. Jalopnik is thrilled about performance until it isn’t? Until Tesla does it? I’m not trying to be an Elon apologist but... damn.
Your “World’s best parent” trophy is in the mail.
I was planning to sell my manual 135i because I have too many cars. Yesterday, I took it out on a spirited drive in the santa cruz mountains - to pick up 50 lbs of tomatoes - with the kids. One of them threw up. But I had a goddamned blast and changed my mind on the sale. Read more
Yup. I have an M car with a manual. Yeah, it can pretend to be a sports car, but 90 percent of the time, i just drive it around in the city, where I live, while it’s in eco mode. And other than a choppy ride, it basically feels like a luxury car in that scenario. And in that scenario, it’s a mildly more engaging… Read more
Farmer Here, We have side by sides and just bought a Roxor. The Roxor can tow more, hold more, is more comfortable than due to longer wheel base and is only slightly more money than our diesel side by sides (14k vs 17k). It saves us having to use a tractor to tow fuel trailers, water trailers around, makes a great…
you realize that Mahindra has been making this “clone” under license since WWII right, since before the current “Jeep” company even existed...
not exactly a chinese knockoff. and Jeep’s legal arguments were all horseshit.
So much this... In fact as an FU to Jeep. They should have made the design such that. Yeah we’ll sell it to you looking like this, but for $500 we’ll drop ship a crate to you with these “accessory” sheet metal pieces in it that make your Roxor look like a Willy’s.
Waiting for the aftermarket parts to make it look like a Jeep again.
“How is sound quality at the other end? Or is it a lot of Wind Noise and breathing?”
I have the earlier version of this unit, the Cardo Packtalk. When I’m on a phone call with someone, they can’t even tell I’m on the bike, even at highway speeds. Note that I have a fairing and windshield, and wear a full-face helmet. I… Read more
I have read Jalopnik for years now, but never commented. But this is the article I will comment on. A friend of mine and I ride together a lot. Like probably 2-3000 miles this year alone. We have them for us and our girlfriends. I cannot go back to riding without one. Very few things in life that I call game-changing,… Read more
Yes, it’s loud enough to be heard over earplugs at any mph. While I haven’t been on the other end of the calls, people I’m talking to are surprised that I’m on my bike.
Speaking for most of the people I know who use them, myself included, the bluetooth comms are to listen to music so you don’t need a stereo on your bike (which most bikes don’t have). And my bike is prob quieter than your car. Read more
