Key Features

    Secure car-style cabin

    This is no ordinary off-roader. With its spacious 2-person cabin and high-back bucket seats with 3-point seat belts and shoulder bolsters, you'll feel comfortable and secure. The Seat Belt Inter-Lock system prevents the engine from starting unless you buckle up - while the rugged tubular cage and sun top help protect you from the elements.

    Durable cargo bed

    Manufactured from lightweight polypropylene, the flat cargo bed is designed to carry up to 136kg of gear or provisions. Six tie-down points allow you to secure the load with straps, and the multi-position tailgate can be located to suit your needs. And when you need to access the engine for routine maintenance, the whole cargo bed can be quickly removed.
