Bad Boy Buggies Introduces Ambush, Recoil, Recoil iS, and Instinct Vehicles

Last week we had the oportunity to travel to Augusta Georgia for the E-Z-GO / Bad Boy Buggies dealer meetings. Generally these types of events are nice to catch up with friends across the country and learn about the new products and programs. However, this meeting was a LOT different!

The highlight of the meeting was the unveiling of the new Bad Boy product line! From the moment we first saw them we were all blown away by the look and style. These things looked extremely sporty and rugged! Unlike anything we've seen so far from Bad Boy.

This was just the start. Once the meeting broke we got the opportunity to take the new Buggies out to a hunting range to test drive each model in real world extreme conditions! I was personally blown away by how well each model performed. The 72 volt AC powered drive system on the Recoil, Recoil iS, and the Instinct was fantastic! The steering, ride, and performance from the Recoil iS was far Superior to anything I've ever been on..

I was also really impressed with the design and engineering in the Ambush. It was really cool how we could switch from gas to electric power on the fly! There is no doubt that this is going to be a big seller based on need and performance. The extended range this vehicle is going to provide, fills the needs of many different uses.

Below is the official press release from bad Boy outlining each model. We do have the Ambush, Recoil, Recoil iS, and Instinct models on order and we do anticipate to start seeing delivery of these models any day! I would encourage everyone to stop by the showroom for a test drive and walk around. You wont be disappointed!

AUGUSTA, GA — Bad Boy Buggies announces the addition of the Recoil, Recoil iS and Instinct to its fleet of off-road utility vehicles. These fully electric models offer outdoor enthusiasts the revolutionary technology and state-of-the-art design necessary for long days on the trail.

“We’re proud to add these new models to the Bad Boy Buggies family because they offer hunters and outdoor enthusiasts the ability to choose the perfect fit for their individual lifestyles,” said Eric Bondy, vice president of the consumer value stream for Bad Boy Buggies. “The innovative engineering present in these products encompasses quiet power, range and versatility.  In short, they provide everything you need to handle the most challenging outdoor pursuits.”

First in the new product line are the Recoil and the Recoil iS. Both models feature fully electric, zero-emissions full-time 4WD, and tackle the trails with a 72-volt AC electric drivetrain that offers up to 40 miles of range between charges. Rack-and-pinion steering provides for improved control, as well as reduced turning radius and significantly decreased steering effort from previous Bad Boy Buggies models.  Both models also feature four-wheel hydraulic disc brakes for optimal stopping power.

Rack-and-pinion steering provides for improved control, as well as reduced turning radius and significantly decreased steering effort from previous Bad Boy Buggies models.  Both models also feature four-wheel hydraulic disc brakes for optimal stopping power.

The Recoil features an independent front suspension for a more comfortable ride and improved handling, and a standard 5.9-cubic-foot cargo bed to haul gear or the latest hunting trophy. The Recoil iS adds four-wheel independent front suspension for an even smoother ride, a 10.2-cubic-foot aluminum cargo bed to haul larger loads, and also features nine 8-volt batteries for greater range and power.

In addition, the Recoil and Recoil iS include aggressive new styling and design that incorporates a number of new safety features, including an operator-protective structure (OPS), three-point seat belts and side safety nets. In lieu of the standard cargo bed, both the Recoil and the Recoil iS can be built with an optional, factory-installed rear seat that converts in seconds into a cargo deck.

For customers who don’t need 4WD capability, the Instinct offers many of the features of the Recoil line in a 2WD machine.  The Instinct offers a whisper-quiet 72-volt AC electric drivetrain that provides up to 50 miles of range between charges.

The Instinct also includes an independent front suspension, rack-and-pinion steering, four-wheel hydraulic disc brakes, and safety features such as an occupant protective structure (OPS), three-point seat belts and side safety nets.

A 5.9-cubic-foot cargo bed is standard equipment for the Instinct, which can also be equipped with an optional, factory-installed rear-facing seat that converts into a cargo deck for those customers who need to carry up to four passengers.

To meet the specific needs or style of any owner, the Recoil, the Recoil iS and the Instinct can be customized with a wide variety of options and accessories, including a winch, cargo rack, gun boots and gun/bow racks, LED spotlights, and weather enclosures.

The new models join the AmbushTM, a dynamic gas and electric hybrid introduced to hunters earlier this year. The Ambush and Recoil iS are available now at Bad Boy Buggies authorized dealers. The Recoil will be available in September, and the Instinct in November.
