Videos of R1 Rhino conversions

I thought the Rhinos with the R1 motor were not able to be converted to a 4 seater.

I would do the swap, but I would use my 1999 900ss Ducati motor...only negative I would see using it, is the motor is air cooled.

just depends on how you mount the motor if you mount it like it is when its in the bike like mine it would be a little tuff to fit but if u turnit sideways and make a jack shaft setup you can, altho i woulndt think it would be safe going that fast with 4 people 6th gear wot is really moving out, mine goes around 90mph in sand....

Is it the camera angle or me but that dudes head looks way to close to the roof and bars. If he rolled it he would have head injury fore sure.

2nd place is the first loser!!

Were a whole lot faster than you think you are.

At 75mph around the dunes..how well does the suspension handle the extra HP?

Any negatives doing the R1 conversion?

Dudes head does look to close to the roof and upper driver side top bar.

The blue rhino does look kinda funny...
