Great find slipho...Cool it as ABS traction control etc. Could be a great commuter vehicle. If you can use it in the carpool/HOV lane. Except it does have a pesky obsolete V-Twin in it..

Looks like a great way for disabled motorcyclist to get the bugs back in their teeth!

I think it looks cool as hell. My dad used to work for Bombardier when I was a kid in Quebec, they used to have some cool family picnics and Christmas parties and stuff. When they introduced SeaDoos they gave all us kids rides around Lake Champlain on them, pretty cool huh?

I see Maryland is one of their first target markets. At $15,000 it might be fun to go take a look. Gotta be worth three Segways.

I dig it. Cool toy if you're rich or handicapped.



Two wheels in front and one in back just makes more sense than two back/one front. Looks better, too.

Looks wise, I liked the converted R1 that someone posted a few weeks back. Much sexier. This one look too much like recycled snowmobile parts.



With that being said, I think three wheelers are going to play a larger role in the future of urban commuting with a lot of the benefits of a motorcycle (lightweight, compact for parking, fuel efficiency) but without the learning curve of a full-on motorcycle or even a scooter.
