    Weight capacity is 200lbs.. if the ground is relatively flat you'd probably be okay exceeding that.

    For those that might not be familiar with the product. 196cc engine. The weak point on this (or any mini-bike like this ) is the clutch....

    On the flats you might get away with a small trailer.

    or
    You could see about getting a used TW200 bike. Stronger transmission and clutch set up....

    There are some interesting upgrades available for these, such as torque converters, etc. They'll never match an actual motorcycle for power or durability, but for the money I could see some uses for them. Lots of vids on youtube, have fun!

    A mini nitrous oxide kit would be fun.

    A buddy of mine had one of those, remove the governer, and put a torque converter on. With the right gearing, we were able to keep a steady 40mph according to the Garmin in his pocket.

    I've got an TW 200. It's hard to beat with excellent fuel economy, but I'd love to have an Rokon for more rugged trails.

    I'd go with a Rokon or TW200 if you have a little more money to spend.

    The only suspension is the seat cushion, no thanks. I would look for a older Honda XR 100 or 150.
