Good people, help me with my research.
We have all gone to some remote places penye hakuna matatu, or you are in too much hurry to wait for the matatu to fill up, so you opted to take a bike.
If I introduced a UTV like the one below, and I charged you 7o bob instead of the usual 50 bob that the bike charges for the same journey, would you take the UTV or a bike?

you need to sell these things to off-road enthusiasts instead of offering "taxi" services on them. Thats a more viable business idea.

If you can get them at good rates then re-sell them at a reasonable price, you'll be better off. While you're at it, get some dirt-bikes and such. I would willingly buy if the prices were reasonable.

Thanks. That's a nice perspective.
But I had thought of offering "taxi" services to the very remote areas.

remote areas use motor bikes. The maintenance for a motor bike is much cheaper and feasible than for an off-road vehicle. You cannot compete with their prices and still make enough money to maintain your fleet and make a profit. It just doesn't make business sense.

I guess you are looking for something that would have an edge over a motorcycle but whose costs are less than those of a proper car.For the ATV, I would not be very sure about the applicable taxes. That aside, decent quality ATVs happen to be pretty expensive to purchase and maintain. Again, they are not meant for highway use by design. There are several deviations of the motorcycle that are technically motorcycles, but which offer notable advantages over the common motorcycle.

Exactly what I had in mind.

Alibaba should have these, and my pastor would approve and recommend them to women.
