Overlanding usually requires a highly capable vehicle such as an SUV or pickup truck. Folks who prefer to enjoy the creature comforts of home can either opt for an off-road-ready RV, travel trailer, or camper conversion. Depending on the cargo space, some bring along ATVs, UTVs, mountain bikes, trail bikes, and scramblers, among others. If you’re open to suggestions, UBCO’s 2×2 Special Edition seems like a lot of fun.
As a form of recreation, overlanding enthusiasts ultimately choose to go on these expeditions to reconnect with nature and relax. The 2×2 Special Edition is an all-electric motorcycle engineered for trips across terrain normally inaccessible for larger forms of transport. As such, the manufacturer incorporates features that can prove helpful in a pinch.
UBCO is short for Utility Bike Company, which is why the 2×2 Special Edition is engineered to live up to the name. It all starts with a welded 316 stainless steel and 7027 aluminum frame for heavy-duty performance. The step-through chassis design makes it convenient to ride not only out in the wild but also in the urban jungle.
It can carry a payload of 330 lbs. which should be enough to ferry you and some supplies. Therefore, it has cargo racks integrated on both ends, while UBCO throws in a 12-liter center and 30-liter rear carry cases as nifty extras. The 2×2 Special Edition is outfitted with powerful hub motors for each 17” x 1.85” aluminum wheel with 9-gauge steel spokes.
These are then shod in 17” x 2.75” tires ideal for both off-road and on-street grip. UBCO claims the removable 3.1 kWh battery can provide up to 75 miles of range on a single charge. It’s positioned optimally to give the 2×2 Special Edition a low center of gravity and therefore, improved stability. Finally, a Peak Design phone mount is likewise included with your purchase.Order Yours: Here
