How is Robby messing around? Do you think he’s the only employee at Speed UTV? I can assure you the big dogs can’t punch out a new ground up design as fast as Robby has been able too. I know for a fact as the company I work for is a contract manufacture for a few of these recreation vehicle companies. They have so much red tape, and hoops to jump through. They have to budget their engineering dept just to do a redesign. Just getting that budget approved can take weeks to months.Agreed ! He keeps messing around and now can am will be the next one to build something better. He is screwing with big dogs that can punch out a new design very quickly as robby is still trying to figure out what he has and already spilled the beans. Why he didn't just do like Polaris did and and any other manufacturer and show some little spy clips to tease everyone then have the big reveal I think was a big mistake. As he is making it he is showing all the other manufacturers what he is up to. Kinda backwards. Less than 20% different design gets you past most patents. I feel like the speed car is a old model and it is not even out yet.
As far as why Robby just did not keep this a secret like the others do, is he needed to show proof of concept, show sales and a valuation of the company to get the more Financial support that it takes to start a venture like this. This is not a few $million dollar project. And just know any and all patents are filed and in process before Robby is showing anything. He’s even made that point in his shows about not being able to show something until the patent process is complete. He has way more to gain by showing what he’s doing to the general buying public then trying to hide it from a few competing companies. I’m sure once Speed UTV is established and has the capital they will not be as forthcoming on future models.
Also you have to show more then just 20% of a design change to be clear of patent infringement. I’ll see if I can find it, but it’s a lot more then that.
