Exactly. If you’re buying a roxor, you’re lying to yourself. Or you’ve just got way to much money to burn.

The Roxor because it doesn't have all of the nanny controls and other associated BS with that comes with a street legal new vehicle. Multiple rural cities and municipalities are creating a licensing procedure for utvs to be used on secondary county roads and city streets. Even some states, like Montana, have adopted street legal certifications for ATV/UTV. So in the still free areas of the united states, they are a nice option.

Fourtrail you’re telling me if I handed you 15k you would buy a roxor? When you could build a CJ/yj/tj on tons for that.

And nanny controls lol? Up until recently they were governed to 45mph. That’s about the ultimate Nancy control.

Although everyone has been talking about the Roxor, No one has mentioned the Mahindra Thar. So has the Roxor been brought to the US as a test vehicle just to see if the Thar would sell in the US. I think if the Thar was to come to the States, I might have to have a second look. But the Roxor isn't worth it when I can get a better built ATV

Seeing as I already have a CJ on tons sitting in the garage, yes, I would buy the ready to go Roxor.

cant see them selling to many even if they could get it by modern safety. Just look at the 2 door sales of Jks over that period of life. So now you are in a real small market. would hardly pay for design. cost would be double of what they are at now EASY.

i bet it can be tagged for street use. Just depends where you live. Here in this county of AZ. any ATV/side/etc can be. I have seen many, buggies too with Az plates. So why not? If those can be. see no issue. Her its matter of plates lights window. No smog no safety check. Fact is they dont even get out of the office to look at what you are registering. its just paper work. Now how its insured might be an issue. But they must do that for the ones i see on the road. When they hit a car it tends to be deadly since well they are not designed for crash standards have no weight. like bug hitting a window.

That’s how it is here in Ohio. You could probably register a engine on a stand.

This is the Mahindra Thar that was mentioned. These are not made in the states.
