UTVs, Fad Ts, small boats?
Just did some thinking on this, and snowmobiles sound like a possible candidate. Probably a little weak though. Something like a jet ski could be another application, but boats take a lot of power to move, and they tend to be built to a price point. I rode a rental jet ski out in florida, and it would do 43 mph with its 100 horsepower inline 3, plus they cost $6900 brand new.

They would have to put it in one of those stand up jet skis if it was going to be a sensible option.
