When you think about Caterham, you inevitably thing about all kinds of racing cars specifically developed for tracks. Most of them are street illegal and cannot be used in safe conditions. But then, the British manufacturer has also decided to take this venture a little further. You would not really expect to see a solid collection of motorcycles coming from a car manufacturer, yet it can be done. The astonishing collection from Caterham has recently launched a rugged unit that will inevitably make you look twice. It is not the average sports motorcycle you might expect, yet it does not look like a classic traveling motorcycle either. Then what is it?
According to most critics, the Caterham Brutus 750 is the SUV of motorcycles. A few electric bicycles were also included in the same collection, yet Brutus 750 can definitely stand up in the crowd. The unit is already available for sale and it has gained a pretty impressive fan base. It comes with a series of innovations. Just like any other SUV, it is available in a lot of different environments, whether it comes to on or off road uses. Its mission goes even further than that though.
The Caterham Brutus 750 comes with an impressive set of 26 inch wheels. Their rugged appearance is what makes them unique. They are wide, large and specifically adjusted to eat sand and snow without any hiccups at all. These are the kind of wheels you take for an off adventure, Aside from the tall tread, the wide profile makes them excellent for all types of activities. Of course, if you plan to use this motorcycle on regular roads, you might want more road friendly tires or you can kiss comfort goodbye.
The possibility to convert the Caterham Brutus 750 is yet another major innovation. At a first glance, this motorcycle is like a classic ATV on two wheels. However, a few hours of your time will inevitably turn it into a snowmobile as well. While riding on two wheels might be fun on snow for some extreme sport enthusiasts, functionality and safety are more important.
As for the overall performance, it might be worth paying attention to the numbers too. The DOHC single cylinder engine is water cooled. It has 750cc and provides a decent power of 50HP. It is not large, but quite compact and fits perfectly under the comfortable seat. The entire motorcycle weighs a little more than 500 pounds (around 235 kilograms). The fuel capacity measures 10 liters, while the CVT transmission is automatic.
Aside from the wheels, the rugged appearance is maintained throughout the entire design. If you are looking for a fancy motorcycle to draw attention downtown and get some appreciation, this is not the right model. Instead, it is designed to be fun off road and to help in harsh environments. The possibility to use Caterham Brutus 750 on road is nothing but an advantage for the overall convenience. All in all, this innovative design has quickly gained a lot of appreciation.
