When I (fairly) recently bought my Maverick Sport X RC, all the participants of the sale attached the moniker "Car" to the vehicle, e.g., you choose a great "Car". I have noticed on FB that in other states they refer to them as "bikes". So, is there a regional accent, if you will, to the moniker of these things?

Certain parts of the country call them " bikes", other parts of the country say "cars".

If they call them " bikes", they also refer to off road toys with 4 wheels as Scott F. pointed out day as " 4 Willers".

That alone should tell who is right, " cars" or " bikes".

I call it a buggy. Saying car implies it’s something it’s not. The day that buggy can out 100 mph my Burban I might call it a car then.

I agree “car” sounds strange to call it.......but they are street legal in some states, have a license plate and everything a car has. Is your Mav slower than your suburban ? I would think it would smoke your suv 0-60 and o-100 .....plus’s much better handling

I call them side by side's. some of my buddies call them buggies. No one around here calls them bike's, because they are in no way bikes. We call quad's, quad's. Bike's, bike's and side by side's side by side's. Any thing else is just weird. lol.

My wife tells me the official wording on our insurance policy...is motorcycle???
That just means, that if you need to file a claim they will only pay for half of it.
