The 2011 MXB Shocker Motocross Board ($2,999) is designed to be a different kind of fun on wheels from the usual small-motored toys guys often buy. Weighing 74lbs and featuring a 48-volt brush-less motor capable of producing nearly 5 lb/ft of torque and reaching a top speed of 35 mph (with tweaking), think of it as something Optimus Prime might buy for his nephew. We mention tweaking for the top speed because the vehicle is ‘technically’ limited to 20 mph..but it’s a fairly simple process to unlock. The battery can provide an average range of 18 miles, and the good news is the recharge cycle is only two hours. However an optional extra battery and regenerative braking package can be used to nearly double that range. Speaking of breaking, that’s managed via a hand-held control cabled to the board, as is the throttle. For steering, users must rely on their own skill and the ability to lean for maneuvering from one place to another. Needless to say, it looks like some serious fun given the right environment and Performance Concepts is actually taking pre-orders now — guaranteeing that anything ordered by November 28th will arrive by Christmas. If you do end up purchasing one though, make sure to take your health insurance card with you.
