Recoil model offers rear-facing seat that converts into cargo deck
Bad Boy Buggies in August announced the addition of the Recoil, Recoil iS and Instinct to its fleet of off-road UTVs. These fully electric models offer outdoor enthusiasts the revolutionary technology and state-of-the-art design necessary for long days on the trail, according to the company.
“We’re proud to add these new models to the Bad Boy Buggies family because they offer hunters and outdoor enthusiasts the ability to choose the perfect fit for their individual lifestyles,” said Eric Bondy, vice president of the consumer value stream for Bad Boy Buggies. “The innovative engineering present in these products encompasses quiet power, range and versatility. In short, they provide everything you need to handle the most challenging outdoor pursuits.”
The Recoil ($11,999 MSRP) and the Recoil iS ($13,499 MSRP) both feature fully electric, zero-emissions full-time 4WD, and tackle the trails with a 72-volt AC electric drivetrain that offers up to 40 miles of range between charges. Rack-and-pinion steering provides for improved control, as well as reduced turning radius and significantly decreased steering effort from previous Bad Boy Buggies models. Both models also feature four-wheel hydraulic disc brakes for optimal stopping power.
The Recoil features an independent front suspension for a more comfortable ride and improved handling and a standard 5.9-cubic-foot cargo bed to haul gear or the latest hunting trophy. The Recoil iS adds four-wheel independent front suspension for an even smoother ride, a 10.2-cubic-foot aluminum cargo bed to haul larger loads, and also features nine 8-volt batteries for greater range and power.
In addition, the Recoil and Recoil iS include aggressive new styling and design that incorporate a number of new safety features, including an operator-protective structure (OPS), three-point seat belts and side safety nets. In lieu of the standard cargo bed, both the Recoil and the Recoil iS can be built with an optional, factory-installed rear seat that converts in seconds into a cargo deck.
For customers who don’t need 4WD capability, the Instinct offers many of the features of the Recoil line in a 2WD machine. The Instinct ($9,599 MSRP)offers a whisper-quiet 72-volt AC electric drivetrain that provides up to 50 miles of range between charges.
The Instinct also includes an independent front suspension, rack-and-pinion steering, four-wheel hydraulic disc brakes, three-point seat belts and side safety nets.
