Does that look like the Can Am Spyder? Extremely close I would say.

This one shows an air cooled engine. I saw a drawing of one with a revo in it. Either way thats one cool trike! Wonder how it would do on the Dragon?

That would be the trike for my wife if it ever hit productions with the Revo in it.

This has been around for a while. You can search here and find it a couple of times. The MoCo apparently has a relationship of some sort with a company having history in the three wheel manufacturing end. This is separate from the trike issue. Something will come of it. FWIW A dealer told me to expect it soon.

I'd take a T-Rex, but it's a car. I saw a couple of them at the Dragon last May.

Don't be deceived by the looks. The Piaggio MP3 is truly nothing like the Can Am. The MP3 is a scooter with two wheels up front. It rides like a scooter, but has a phenomenal 45 degree lean angle due to the trapezoid like connection between those front wheels. The rider position is fully upright as it would be on a touring bike.

The Can Am rider position is way more leaned forward and it is designed to ride more like a performance machine than anything else.

My wife rides a scooter and the Piaggio MP3 got her attention. It's definitely not in the trike class as it switches characteristics from tadpole trike to bike depending on speed. It's a slick little bugger.

I looked at the Can Am and it seems way underpowered for a 3-wheeled vehicle. Even the revolution might be a bit light for that configuration unless they bump it out again to say... 1500cc with a turbo. :D

I wont now with my very own tour guide. This means you Lil. I'm impressed!
Oh, no need to be impressed. :laugh:

I've ridden a friends MP3. It is downright hysterical. I laughed the entire time under my helmet. I understand why people like them so much. There is a Scooter Gang that rides in local parades. Many ride all sorts of motorcycles. They do the scooter thing for community & laughs. Actually some of them with their 70 - 100+ mpg are laughing at the rest of us.

The CanAm, well, I looked into it. It intrigued the heck out of me until I realized how leaned forward the riding position is....not for me.

Wife's Helix is a blast to ride. I also have my 110cc Kikker Hardknock which is a kick too. 80+mpg feels pretty good though. It's fun to have plenty of flavors.
