Funny you should bring up Harley. If my memory serves me well, they purchased a corporation in California that made three wheelers called TriHawks in 1985. So they own the rights to a functioning three wheeler, two front, one back. From what I heard these things were way fun, though they were more similar to a very low CG three wheel car. They closed down the factory and never brought it out again. Don't know why.

It's when you regain the grip on the road that the fun starts

Can you imagine working on all that front suspention cr*p when it gets old?



Or something goes haywire up front and you end up riding around like a '55 Packard with a bad hydropneumatic bag.



Maybe they can sell them at Victory dealerships. Probably see just as many.

This bike is a terrific answer to a question that nobody asked. Piaggio is one step away from world domination with this baby.

Tell numb nuts that you will buy one right after he does. In fact, tell him that you will buy one the day after KPaul gets his Buell. You'll have a lifetime pass on either.

Two wheels up front may make for one cool looking custom bike ...

Default Butch it up a little

What it really needs is an ultra-wide rear tire and a flame job. Then it will sell big in the US.

I don't see a reason that this technology or design would be limited to scooters. Does anyone see an Aprilia version comming out? SVX V-twin maybe?

I wish this stuff was not so slow to develop and spread.
