THE BENCHMARK FOR A WHOLE NEW KIND OF ADVENTURE.

No matter where you travel, no matter what the terrain – with the Rover B14 Adventure you can master the journey. The B14 Adventure’s uncompromisingly powerful 4400 watt ZM2-R electric motor is matched with safety and durability packages that are miles ahead of the competition. In fact, the B14 Adventure is the only standing electric vehicle in the world to firmly occupy the powersports segment, while its super-light 82 lb curb weight and compact portability push its use potential far beyond that of anything else. The B14 Adventure is equipped with unrivaled premium features such as full underbody rock plating, IP67 sealed powertrain and PCM thermally managed battery system. This is the new definition of all-terrain adventure.

Handmade in Portland, Oregon. USA


PERFORMANCE FEATURES

4400 WATT ZM2-R® BRUSHLESS DRIVE SYSTEM

The ZM2-R Brushless Drive System is engineered to be extremely reliable and require no regular maintenance. The system operates at almost 90% total efficiency and utilizes a totally enclosed air cooled electric motor that can produce 4400 watts of power and 45 ft-lbs of torque, all while being light enough to hold in the palm of your hand.

 

POWER TO WEIGHT FOR MAXIMUM PERFORMANCE

The modest weight of the B14 Adventure combined with loads of power yields an incredible power to weight ratio equivalent of 8.1 HP to every 100 lbs of weight. The result is 0-30 mph in 3.9 seconds. 

 

 

FULL torque on demand

With full torque instantly available through nearly the entire powerband the B14 Adventure offers exceptional acceleration and hill climbing capabilities.

 

 

REGENERATIVE INTERLOCK BRAKING

The rear brake of the Rover B14 Adventure utilizes regenerative interlock braking. When the Interlock is activated it turns the Rovers motor into a power generator and feeds energy back to the battery as you slow down. The Interlock engages via light depression of the brake lever, so the rear brake activates just before the front brake pads touch the brake rotor. Aside for the braking system being extremely effective and reliable, it also offloads work from the front brake pads allowing them to last much longer.


special features

FULL UNDERBODY ROCK PLATING

The entire underbody of the B14 Adventure is protected by 1/8" thick aluminum, making it virtually impervious to damage. 

 

 

OVERSIZED BRAKES

The B14 Adventure utilizes an oversized 180mm rotor and high performance metal ceramic brake pads for increased braking power and increased longevity. Additionally, the B14 Adventure also features a 10% increase in Regenerative Interlock braking power.

 

 

STEALTH MODE LIGHT CONTROL

Enables manual control over the light system, because sometimes you don't want to be seen.


BUILD FEATURES

MAGNA-SHELL ST® CHASSIS

The new Magna-Shell ST freeride chassis is extremely strong and durable, but weighs only 9 lbs. This is achieved through the use of aircraft grade aluminum and a cutting edge aerospace fastening system that virtually eliminates the need for welded joints. This reduction in welds allows us to better maintain the original temper uniformity and strength of the aluminum, and results in an ultra-strong chassis at a fraction of the weight. The Magna-Shell ST chassis also utilizes an A607 cold rolled steel down tube assembly for superior front-end rigidity and responsiveness.

 

Z-STACK 3® FOLDING FRONT END

The new Z-Stack 3 Front End incorporates a headset assembly and stem folding linkage that operate along the same horizontal plane. This allows for the fitment of massive 14" tires while achieving a total folded height of only 20". When folded the Rover can fit in all kinds of places, from the back seat of a car to under an office desk, making for easy vehicle transport and storage. The new Z-Stack 3 is also extremely stiff and durable, and is built to withstand massive amounts of repeated torque without degrading over time.

 

all-aluminum construction

We don't do plastic. The Rover is constructed entirely of aircraft grade aluminum, making it seriously durable and extremely lightweight. 

 

4.5" OF GROUND CLEARANCE

4.5" of ground clearance allows you to navigate rocky trails and rough city streets with confidence.


SAFETY FEATURES

ULTRA-SAFE LITHIUM ION BATTERY WITH PCM TECHNOLOGY

We don't cut corners, especially when it comes to your safety. That's why we use a revolutionary automotive grade lithium ion battery that incorporates a proprietary Phase Change Material (PCM). This PCM is fire retardant, absorbs waste heat, and promotes uniform pack temperature. The result is a battery that meets UL 94 V-0 flammability standards, making it one of the safest and most reliable batteries in the world. Learn more.

 

AUTOMATIC POWER DISCONNECT

In the event of a power irregularity the battery system will automatically disconnect the main power source.

 

SMART CHARGING

Both the standard charger and the optional fast charger utilize digital smart charging technology, which monitors the batteries state of charge and automatically shuts off power when charging is complete. This allows you to safely leave the vehicle unattended while charging. 

 

STORE INDOORS

Zero emissions + no onboard fluids + ultra safe battery technology = indoor friendly. 


ENVIRONMENTAL FEATURES

ZERO EMISSIONS & silent operation

Aside from the obvious environmental benefits of a clean quite ride, another major benefit is that it can open up your world to vast new possibilities of freedom and exploration. Imagine where you can go and what you can do when you're not making noise or spewing emissions.
