This new genus in powersports puts a 196-cc, one-cylinder, four-stroke, 14-horsepower engine between two rubber tank treads mounted to an aluminum and tubular steel frame. The rider stands over the engine on a skateboard-like deck with 15 degrees of lean, working the thumb throttle for speeds up to 25 miles per hour, leaning that deck and the jet-ski-like handlebars to turn with the help of two CVTs controlling tread speeds. Bolt on some hydraulic brakes, and the ready-to-ride package weighs 319 pounds and comes with claims of all-weather, all-terrain capability.
Translogic tested the Shredder when it launched and walked away smiling, impressed, and tired. Sometime between then and now, the top speed dropped from 30 mph, perhaps because of the EPA-certified model's addition of an electric carburetor, oil filter, pump, and cooler.
