The 6-wheeled ATV is designed to haul sizeable consignments of cargo (like ammunition, water, food, etc.) over challenging terrains. The vehicle features on-demand 6-wheel drive to ensure that it stops at nothing.

Power comes from a 760 cc 4-stroke liquid-cooled big-bore engine which is mated to an automatic transmission for ease of operation. It has a payload capacity of close to 500 kg.
