Platune Sand-X Bike

In case you were ever worried about being stuck in the desert with your dune buggy after a freak snowstorm, the Platune Sand-X Bike has got a solution for you. A mash up result between American company Platune and Sand-X, a Swiss company specializing in off-road vehicles, this snowmobile has been converted to ride the sand dunes. Using wheels instead of skis up front, the Platune Sand-X Bike is powered by a Rotax 800cc, 160hp, two-cylinder, two-stroke engine, giving it the juice to accelerate to 60 mph in just 2.8 seconds, and maxing out at a top speed of 115 mph. It’s already gained popularity in the Middle East, but there are no plans to bring it to North America just yet.
