Go-Ped Trail Ripper 46

After years of being meticulously engineered at the Skunk Werks, and raved about as the C.I.D.L.I., Patmont Motor Werks, the innovators of present day motorized scooters and creators of the Go-Ped Brand, has just announced the release of their new pure off-road scooter, the Go-Ped Trail Ripper 40. No longer are paved surfaces important for Go-Ped use.This amazing stand-on scooter weighing only 46 pounds puts its 4 HP to the ground through a simple, unique and tunable patent pending suspension system. Dubbed C.I.D.L.I. for Cantilevered Independent Dynamic Linkless Indispension, this unique front and rear swing arm system is indispensable to this practical and fun light weight off-road machine. Previously other off-brand scooters have been introduced with traditional shocks. However, weight, complexity, reliability, short 1-3" travel and rider standing room problems have prevented these types of vehicles from reaching true off-road success.The Go-Ped Trail Ripper 40 now breaks this paradigm and follows traditional dirt bike suspension travel specifications of "half the wheel diameter". The front and rear tires are 4 X 11 inch knobbies , and the C.I.D.L.I. suspension travel approaches an unprecedented 6 inches on each end. For power, PMW is introducing a new 4 port, 4 HP, high compression, high RPM 41.5cc 2 stroke engine . This purpose designed engine becomes PMW's top of the line performer of its production gas powered scooter line-up. Power delivery is through a single reduction pocket bike style chain system with 78mm automatic centrifugal clutch . Though the aftermarket selection is already great, the stock sprocket ratio was chosen to deliver the best bottom end for this combination. This produces absolutely the highest fun factor in trail riding for this scooter. Chain adjustment uses PMW's patent pending adjustable motor mount system found on many of its other very successful and race proven products. Its Chromoly single tube
