K1300 Lives on

Looks like the K1300 motor found a new home . . .

Re: K1300 Lives on

It looks pretty cool, but how come it only has a top land speed of 45 mph? My polaris has 72 hp and it has a top speed of around 80 mph. I would think with double the hp it would have a higher top speed. It is about 400 lbs heavier but still with the wider wheel base it should handle better than my quad. The other problem I see is that I don't know anywhere around me that would allow you to use it on land and water. All the places I know of it's one or the other.

Re: K1300 Lives on

the $40-50K price is a bit much. Can by a 1300 and an ATV for less
