CECTEK KINGCOBRA 4X4
There are several interesting
quads built in Taiwan that we rarely
get to see here in the USA. Here’s
one that recently caught our eye.
The Cectek KingCobra has a 500cc,
single-cylinder, liquid-cooled, four-
valve engine delivering power to
all four wheels. This quad is offered
with street-legal equipment in the
countries where it’s sold. It shows
how sleek and sporty a 4x4 can look.
POLARIS SPORTSMAN WV850 H.O.
Polaris has long been a supporter and supplier of ATVs for military
efforts around the world. In 2014 they
will release that same rugged technology for consumers in the U.S. in
the form of the Sportsman WV850
H.O. This tank of a quad will feature
steel racks capable of carrying 600
(400 rear, 200 front) pounds, a 3000-
pound winch and non-pneumatic
tires called Terrain Armor. Other
features include an 11.75-gallon gas
tank, a wide 47.3-inch stance, heavy-duty shocks with 9 inches of travel up
front and 10. 25 inches out back, and
will weigh in at 1114 pounds.
A machine like this obviously would
come in handy for search-and-rescue
organizations, but is very practical for
construction sites, farm applications
and in the hunting world. Retail price
will be set at $14,999 U.S. and $16,999
for Canadian buyers. Learn more at
