At first, six horsepower tied to a centrifugal clutch doesn’t sound all that interesting. How much fun could you possibly have on a trail bike that tops out at 35 miles per hour and looks like it was styled by the Russian army? If you can get past that, and look at the capabilities, you’ll be suitably impressed. The two wheel drive Rokon Trailbreaker will cross streams two feet deep. It’s go through twenty-four inches of snow, too, and will climb a sixty percent grade with zero drama. It’s part trials bike, part Jeep CJ and part mountain goat; where it will go is limited only by the riders absence of common sense.
Don’t think the Trailbreaker is just for deer hunting, stalking Bigfoot and other assorted backwoods hoonage. If you check the order list, you can equip the Trailbreaker to do just about anything. Want a Power Take Off? You can get one. Log skidder? Sure, that’s an available option, as are a 2,000 watt generator, an irrigation pump, a 3 reel lawn mower, a broadcast spreader, a cultivator and a disc harrow. No matter what you want your Trailbreaker to do, there’s probably an attachment for it. Since it’s low tech, you can fix just about anything with a few adjustable wrenches, a screwdriver and duct tape. If you can’t keep a Trailbreaker running, you have no business turning wrenches on anything that’s powered by an internal combustion engine.
At a starting price of $5,975, the Trailbreaker isn’t cheap. Here’s the good news: Rokon has been building them for 50 years, so there are plenty of good used examples to be had. If you need a motorcycle that will truly get you to hell and back (and plant crops while you’re there), the Rokon Trailbreaker looks like a pretty sensible choice.
