I can’t say enough good things about these Rokons, and quite frankly, neither can their owners. They have a frame that can withstand the punishment of wilderness riding and an enormous ground clearance. They’re lightweight, have hydraulic brakes; and they have an engine you can’t kill. They pull, they tow and they climb like a mountain goat. If you have business out in the woods, these babies are your huckleberry.

There can be no doubt the Rokon Trail-Breaker is a rather specialized machine, and the Rokon for Hunters is even more so. The all-wheel-drive feature puts it into a rather exclusive category, lending it an all-terrain capability far beyond that of “regular” motorcycles.
Even though it obviously lacks the stability of a four-wheel ATV, it is capable of getting into places off limits to a wider chassis – even in terrain that would be prohibitive to foot traffic! It’s fair to say that you will not win any bike shows or races on the thing, unless you are competing against other Rokons.

Back in 1958, Charles Fehn introduced the world to his two-wheel-drive motorcycle, aptly named the Trailmaker. Mr. Fehn designed it as a utility vehicle with serious, if slow, off-road capabilities, and his bikes became popular with hunters and farmers as something of a mule. Fast-forward to 2016, and you can see that the new Rokon Trail-Breaker is one acorn that didn’t fall far from the tree. Same basic front-wheel-drive system, function and overall look of the original, this ride provides true off-road capability and can perform a utility role in an agricultural or campground setting.
