Meet Stroke, The Amazing Tilting Electric Cargo Tricycle

Bicycle, electric or not, is more as a mode of transportation than anything else. Unlike say, automobiles, it has little to no cargo capacity and hence, limiting its use. But thanks to the ingenuity of human’s minds, there are cargo bikes to look to if one ever needed to transport more than a backpack or shoulder bag. The Stroke Tilting Electric Cargo Tricycle by Niigata-based Japanese company Daga is one fresh face in the market and boy, is it looking fabulous.

Polaris Slingshot Grand Touring LE Is Basically An Option-loaded Slingshot

From the front, it looks like Polaris has put a roadster on the road, but it is in fact, a three-wheeler, or more specifically, a new, more luxe variant of the brand’s Slingshot. The 2018 Polaris Slingshot Grand Touring LE, as it is known as, is essentially a slightly more equipped Slingshot featuring the previously optional Slingshade roof, and quilted Comfort Seats. In addition, a color-matched rear fender is thrown in to go with the Indy Red accented Matte Cloud Gray paint job, while on the inside, it is outfitted with Slingshot’s Ride Command with navigation infotainment system. And oh, it also gets a limited edition graphics package too, as seen in the official press images. Continue reading Polaris Slingshot Grand Touring LE Is Basically An Option-loaded Slingshot

This Is Bellcycles, The First Front-wheel Drive Bike Since 19th Century

You know bicycles? Wait. What am I talking about? Of course, everyone knows what a bicycle is, but the thing is, the bicycle you are about to see is like no other, well, at least not in the last 200 years. Meet Bellcycles, probably the only front-wheel drive bicycle since 19th century. For the uninitiated, when bicycle first came about, it had a front-wheel drive configuration, usually with a ridiculously large front wheel that was driven directly by a pair of pedals and sports a disproportionately small trailing wheel. It was a like a horse. No. Wait. I would say it was even more difficult to mount than a horse because of the insane height it had.

it’s Official. Colin Furze Has Just Build The World’s Fastest Bumper Car

The things that madcap British garage inventor, Colin Furze, built certainly are ridiculous enough to quality them a place on the Guinness World Records and he certainly got recognized for some of the works, including the largest bonfire (2006), the longest motorcycle (2008), the fastest speed on a mobility scooter (2010), the fastest pram (2012), and now, he can add world’s fastest bumper car to his growing accolades. The BBC Worldwide sponsored bumper car, AKA dodgem, has made the run with Top Gear’s The Stig behind the wheel (or should we say, handlebar?) and in the process, setting the record of the world’s fastest bumper car.

Watch Colin Furze Turn A Bumper Car Into A 600cc 100BHP Monster

British mad garage inventor, Colin Furze, strikes again and this time, he was asked by BBC to build The Stig, the anonymous race car driver from BBC television series Top Gear, a new ride. According to BBC The Stig loves it when the slow is made to go fast which is pretty much the Colin’s speciality. In response to this request, Furze set out to procure a 1960s dodgem AKA bumper car and proceed to turn it into anything but an electricity-driven flat ride. The reborn bumper car is given a set of go-kart wheels and at its heart, it has a 100BHP 600cc 4-cylinder motor pulled from a Honda sports bike. Already, you know it is going to be an insane ride, don’t you? Continue reading Watch Colin Furze Turn A Bumper Car Into A 600cc 100BHP Monster

British Garage Inventor Creates A Fire-spewing Pulse Jet Powered Drift Trike

We all know how a drift trike works. You get one up to speed, abruptly turn the handlebar to one side, or tug the ‘handbrake’ to initiate the drift. It is exhilarating but apparently, not to all. Not to Colin Furze at least, the mad scientist British garage inventor who have turned many tame transportations into dangerous ones with jet power. His latest creation is not less dangerous and one that, not surprisingly, involves a pulse jet. Aptly dubbed Pulse Jet Drift Trike, it is a drift trike that up the drift game – thanks to a pulse jet stuck sideway at the rear Continue reading British Garage Inventor Creates A Fire-spewing Pulse Jet Powered Drift Trike

Yamaha 03GEN Concept: 3-wheeled Scooter Never Looked This Good

Things must have gone pretty fast at Yamaha Motor. Just last year, we saw the first concept trike, named 01GEN and before we know it, we have missed out the second expression and it is now at the third expression, simply called 03GEN. Unlike the first concept which is both a sport bike with a little off-road mix in it, the third expression are basically scooter and comprises of two models: 03GEN-f, a futuristic scooter and 03GEN-x, an off-road model. Clearly, the duo kind of makes scooter and three-wheeler cool again, well, that’s if they have ever been deemed cool before. Both models are based on the motorcycle maker’s TRICITY model and weighs in heavily on Yamaha’s proudest innovations: Leaning Multi Wheel mechanism.

Yamaha 01GEN Concept Trike Looks Like a Vehicle From Robotech

imagine a motorbike with four wheels and a sharp, racing-style upper. does it look good to you? perhaps, but probably not with the rest of the motorcycle enthusiasts. maybe it looks too much like an ATV or even a car without proper car seats and the standard steering wheel or perhaps it won’t be easily approved for the roads? whatever the reason is, that has prompted Yamaha Motor to eliminate one wheel from their four-wheel motorcycle concept introduced a few years ago and the result is an equally impressive beast known as 01GEN. so it’s a trike, alright and one that’s heavy with futuristic lines and looks straight out of Robotech anime, except that it won’t merge with the rider to transform into an awesome robot. that will be too way off into the future.
