Judging by previous Russian designs, there's a manlet on krokodil inside.

Tarus 2x2. Website: http://moto2x2.com/en/ Impressive to see this bike get so easily lifted and dragged up a cliff. I lifted up a 250 motorcycle and it was heavy as hell. Breaks down into components and stored in two duffel bags.
Taurus 2M: ATV that fits in a suitcase (Russian Military Motorcycle) https://youtu.be/wm_M_s_uDTE
If you’ve ever thought it would be great to have a highly transportable all-terrain vehicle that could collapse down to fit in a suitcase, your dreams have been realized. The Russian Taurus offers that and more, making it the perfect mode of transportation for people who need to travel lightly through rough terrain.

The all-terrain motorcycle features a two-wheel drive system, which alone makes it fairly rare. The tires are large, almost comically so, which help the vehicle make it through mud, over rocks, and even float on water. The fact that it weighs between 47 and 74 kilograms (that’s about 103 to 163 pounds) makes the Taurus even more practical. If you get stuck in the mud or for any other reason can’t get through an area while riding on the bike, you can actually just pick it up and carry it to another area. In other words, there’s no need for a winch or other vehicles to perform a dangerous recovery operation. Simply toss the ATV over your shoulder and keep moving.

Considering that the bike has a 55-degree turning angle, it’s pretty maneuverable, making it easy to get through tight spots. It can travel at up to 37 mph. The design allows it to climb some steep grades easily, taking on stairs like they’re nothing.
The manufacturer notes that two versions of the motorcycle will be produced. The Taurus 2 will come with a low curb weight, a two-stroke engine and low-pressure tires, while the 2m will be heavier, use a four-stroke engine and have more aggressive off-road tires. No matter which version shoppers go with, they both come with a three-speed transmission and a brake disc that’s located on the intermediate shaft instead of on either wheel.

Don’t get your checkbook out just yet– the Taurus 2×2 is still a prototype. The plan is to release the motorcycle sometime in the near future. It will be incredibly inexpensive, with an estimated base price of just $980. The manufacturer is working on some other crazy inventions, like a four-wheel motorcycle.

Taurus is still in production concept stage, but the good news is, it will eventually be made available as DIY kits. it will carry with it a starting price of 35,000 Russian Rubles (about US$980) when it finally becomes available. according to the website, the company has up to four rides planned, including a four-wheeled motorcycle in the pipeline. keep going to see the bike in action.

It's possible to buy plans from them, and the entire bike is just sheet metal cut and fastened together in certain ways, with two car tires.

I bet it can be built for under $500, closest thing to a survivalist bike I've ever seen.

Oh there's a set of instructions on what to do with them, but that's in Russian and on a locked forum. Figure it out?
>> No. 19861 ID: 385f49
I am an engineer, I did technical translations, but if there's no assembly diagram, the set is pretty much useless. It also doesn't correspond with drawing standards too well.
>> No. 19863 ID: a4acc8
I believe this is an illicit copy leaked well sometime before the real plans were up for sale. Don't think anyone has leaked the actual plans, those still have to be bought.

Pretty much useless =/= completely useless. A decent mechanic/engineer could probably use these to create their own version of the bike, the concept is really very simple. It's just an engine attached to both wheels, which consist of aluminum wheels covered with inner tubes from car tires.

>It's just an engine attached to both wheels, which consist of aluminum wheels covered with inner tubes from car tires
Of course, the concept itself is no more than the number of ideas connected in one scheme, but there's the difficulty. On one hand, you may have a conceptual elements and parts for construction that need to be refined for a better production model, but without instructions this takes enormous experience and a lot of resources. On the other hand, you may have full set of documentation and maybe even complete product, but since you never did the research plans, you may never deduce what function do these elements perform, or even how it's been manufactured.

That's why every time somebody states that one producer "copied" a design of another (but did not steal the entire documentation), I can only say these claims are baseless because they lack substance. Even if you try your best, but you miss some essential part of construction, you may end up as a completely different model.

US troops enjoying a ride on a German WW2 Kettenkrad halftrack.
The SdKfz 2, better known as the Kleines Kettenkraftrad HK 101 or Kettenkrad for short (Ketten = chain/tracks, krad = military abbreviation of the German word Kraftrad, the administrative German term for motorcycle), started its life as a light tractor for airborne troops. The vehicle was designed to be delivered by Junkers Ju 52 aircraft, though not by parachute. The vehicle had the advantage of being the only gun tractor small enough to fit inside the hold of the Ju 52, and was the lightest mass-produced German military vehicle to use the complex Schachtellaufwerk overlapped and interleaved road wheels used on almost all German military half-track vehicles of World War II.

Steering the Kettenkrad was accomplished by turning the handlebars: Up to a certain point, only the front wheel would steer the vehicle. A motion of the handlebars beyond that point would engage the track brakes to help make turns sharper. It was also possible to run the vehicle without the front wheel installed and this was recommended in extreme off-road conditions where speed would be kept low. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SdKfz_2

The SdKfz 2 was designed and built by the NSU Werke AG at Neckarsulm, Germany. First designed and patented in June 1939, it was first used in the invasion of the Soviet Union in 1941. Later in the war Stoewer from Stettin also produced Kettenkrads under license, accounting for about 10% of the total production.

Most Kettenkrads saw service on the Eastern Front, where they were used to lay communication cables, pull heavy loads and carry soldiers through the deep Russian mud. Later in the war, Kettenkrads were used as runway tugs for aircraft, especially for the Me 262 jet fighter, and sometimes the Arado Ar 234 jet reconnaissance-bomber. In order to save aviation fuel, a German jet aircraft would be towed to the runway, rather than taxiing under its own power.

The vehicle was also used in the North African theater and on the Western Front.

The Kettenkrad came with a special trailer (Sd.Anh.1) that could be attached to it to improve its cargo capacity.

Being a tracked vehicle, the Kettenkrad could climb up to 24° in sand and even more on hard ground.

Only two significant sub-variations of the Kettenkrad were constructed. Production of the vehicle was stopped in 1944, at which time 8,345 had been built. After the war, production resumed at NSU. Around 550 Kettenkräder were built for agricultural use, with production ending in 1948 (some sources say 1949).
