The first commercially available treader bike (motorcycle using treads instead of wheels).  This bike can traverse virtually any terrain.  It was thought that such a bike would be more maneuverable, however the truth is that it steers almost entirely by lean, and the mono track surface makes steering difficult at slow speeds.  Still, itís a fun toy.

It's not really a cycle, but there is no other category in which to place it, the Aphid uses Koma technology to create a platform capable of scaling virtually any surface.  Designed for deep field research exploration in Africa and South America, this vehicle can climb walls of solid rock with perfect stability, to allowing researchers access even the most remote locations.  It has also become popular among recreational rock climbers and search and rescue teams.

The GMI Robohorse is powered by 2 ACPA batteries.  It has been developed as a vehicle for exploring harsh landscapes with uncertain and unmapped terrain, and is capable of navigating most any obstacle.  As of yet, production has started, and you can reserve sakes, but commercial availability is on hold while the vehicle is tested in the harsh conditions of the wastelends in the Middle East as part of an exploratory team sent to survey the land.  The vehicle is heavily shielded against radiation and EMP, and the outer shell itself is coated in a special compound that repels radiation. 

SPECIAL EQUIPMENT: Geiger counter, GPS, Satellite Radio, air analyzer, homing auto-pilot w/ smart nav system.

Not sure where to put this, but apparently Arasaka, via Toyochev, has taken "Koma" technology to the civilian market now.  Capable of acting as both walker and 4 wheel independent drive transport, they are a bit pricey for a one man vehicle.  They do not possess the AI of their military cousins, or their manipulator arms, but they are extremely maneuverable.  In walker mode, the top speed is 10mph.

SPECIAL EQUIPMENT: off-road capable, 4-wheel drive, walking capability, security system.
