Developer turns motorcycle into snowbike

20 Oct '20
The development company LLC SNOWBIKE plans to supply tracked kits not only throughout Russia - to motorcycle rentals and shops, but also abroad, as there are already requests from motor sports fans from Canada and the USA.

The main direction of the company is the production of snowbikes - motorcycles in which a ski is installed instead of a front wheel, and a caterpillar drive instead of a rear one. Thanks to this design, the snow motorcycle easily overcomes any drifts, ups and downs, it is very maneuverable and passable. The tracked motorcycle, developed by the SNOWBIKE team, is a single-track snowmobile that allows the user of a regular motorcycle to extend the season and operate his “iron horse” not only in summer but also in winter.

Maxim Gnedov, Director of SNOWBIKE LLC, spoke about the development in more detail:
- Thanks to its innovative design, the kit can be easily installed on the motorcycle. Installation is performed without additional special skills. The pendulum assembly is removed from the rear and replaced with a tracked module. The wheel is removed from the front and the docking unit is installed. You can attach a bag, canister or equipment to the tail - there are special mounts for this.
According to the innovator, the track set is a great option for motorcycle rentals: installing such removable equipment will allow them to extend the season and, accordingly, increase profits. In addition, motorcycle snowbikes can be used to organize mini-tours and excursions around the Samara region.
- For now, we are launching small-scale production to perfect the technology and further increase volumes to meet demand around the world. The kit is now suitable for motorcycles from 140 to 250 cc. sm, - added Maxim.
The company already supplies Russian dealers, so kits can be requested in motorcycle stores in almost all regions. And very soon they can be seen in action - in recreation parks and on country roads.
