  • Off road go-kart


    Riding a go-kartOff Road Karting uses a four-wheeled powered vehicle designed for off road use as opposed to the longer established activities of racing go-karts used for racing on a paved road circuit. Off road karting is now a well established and popular activity with a burgeoning range of vehicles, options and adherents. Just as the automobile is undergoing evolutionary changes, noticeably in the field of "off road" use, the smaller recreational vehicles called "go-karts" have spawned a new generation of vehicle for off road use. The origins of using a go-kart sized vehicle for off road use undoubtedly had many stages of development and claimants whose homemade vehicles were "the first" off road go-karts. However, as concerns manufactured products it seems the first was from Honda who released in 1977 a vehicle they called the Odyssey, essentially an "off road" go-kart with a 250 cc two stroke engine, single seat, and a CVT automatic transmission. The main differences to the traditional racing go-kart were a bigger size of tires (giving greater ground clearance and off road traction) and a roll cage.
