This from the web page "revolutionary 3-wheeled stance." Revolutionary? As if nobody has ever thought of this before?



Then they are going to launch this in the fall, mostly in colder states with shorter riding seasons. Watch these babies collect dust while the snow falls and the new launch hype dies.



There are potential buyers for this sort of bike, but I suspect most of them already have goldwing trike conversions.



On the plus side, the MSRP is considerably cheaper than a goldwing, let along a trike conversion.

Being from Western Colorado, yes I have ridden snowmobiles and ATVs. Yes these can be fun.. and you make a great point about the cornering ability. Some us, "lean snobs", prefer to lean i.e. use gravity and Newton's laws like an airplane rather than fight it

What? ATVs are street legal in SD? As in I can register it with the DMV and get a tag for it and drive it down the street in traffic?



That is sweet! Who do I have to petition to get the same thing here in PA?

Coolest thing since sliced bread and freshly fried back bacon.

We bought an S in '05. I was a bit peeved as I put off a new bike for another year....turned out to be a great move. A fantastic urban 4-wheeled weapon. If the folks at Subie ever put a DSG in a WRX-STI, yowzah!!! (I hate rowing a car..and I mean hate - but we live in an overgrown city)

Hmmm. Burn-out/drift machine, anyone? I'd give it a whirl.
