I'm thinking about a meter wide, 2 1/2 meters long, so it can use cow paths and jungle trails, three or four wheels and about 75 to 125Kg load carrying capabilities.  It will require fairly tall and wide tires to handle mud and to avoid high centering on rocks and logs.  It will also let you put two, side by side, in most helo's.

And the driver can sit on it or walk beside it.  The old "Mule" used to have a detachable steering wheel that let the driver walk beside it and steer it, the major problem was shifting gears, you had to depress the clutch, shift and steer all at the same time.  And if you let go of the steering wheel, the thing kept going without you...their load capacity was 1/2 ton and you could take them up the stairs in a four story building, loaded with sandbags.

Other biggest problem was the drivers, they sat well off center, so they were very prone to flipping.  Especially when the drivers had races around the motor pool...

I like the Survival Motoped, ............


I've never used either, but the Ubeco seems to be aimed more at on farm, utility use recharging overnight.......... I like the idea of conveniently running / charging tools & accessories (farmers use all sorts of electronics these days) - also motor on each hub (no chains clutches etc) - light weight (man handlable) plus quiet with no fumes.

On road, I think your Harley would be a better deal Huh?
