F3 Adrenaline trike from TriRod Motorcycles

With the Can-Am Spyder just hitting the showrooms it didn't take long for other builders to begin producing trikes of their own. This is the F3 Adrenaline from TriRod Motorcycles of San Diego, California. From an appearance standpoint, it has the Spyder beat.

Carbon fiber fenders and body panels are matte black which offsets the billet and chrome elsewhere. Power comes from a JIMS Twin Cam B, 120 Cubic Inch engine running through a 6 speed overdrive transmission with an optional electric reverse spinning a belt secondary and final drive.

Dry weight is 749 pounds. Wheels are 18 inches up front with a single 20 incher out back, Pirelli tires all around. It carries 4.5 gallons of fuel. Seating is specified as 2 up but the photos here show what appears to be a single setup, perhaps there's an optional configuration. MSRP: $54,995

Interesting, too, is a Wall Street Jounal article linked from the TriRod site with this quote:

Harley spokesman Bob Klein says trikes represent an untapped market, one largely made up of folks who are either physically unable to ride two-wheel machines or are scared of falling off of them. "We see trikes as a way of putting more people on Harley-Davidsons," he says.

Maybe that Harley Davidson leaning trike is closer than we think. I bet we're going to see a lot of trikes really soon.

San Diego, California – December 5, 2007 – Today TriRod Motorcycles announced the F3 Adrenaline, the world’s first production performance three wheel motorcycle. (http://www.trirodmotorcycles.com)

TriRod Motorcycles set out to create a radical new vehicle that would offer unparalleled performance. By combining advanced technologies from Formula 1 racing, aerospace, and motorcycles, TriRod developed this groundbreaking three wheel motorcycle.

With a low center of gravity and a wide track, the F3 Adrenaline is exceptionally stable and corners aggressively. TriRod engineers chose the 2-1 layout (2 wheels in front, 1 in back) over the traditional 1-2 trike configuration for its superior handling, stability, and rollover resistance.

The F3 Adrenaline’s styling is raw and minimalistic, flowing from its mechanical underpinnings. Carbon fiber body panels, fully adjustable racing shocks, and exposed suspension components reinforce the aggressive nature of the product.

Robert Miller, TriRod Motorcycles Co-founder and Chairman, states, “TriRod’s platform offers increased safety and stability over traditional motorcycles while adding a whole new level of thrilling performance.”

Keith Berryman, owner of Big Bike Motorcycles of Jacksonville, Florida - TriRod’s first dealer, states, “This is the most exciting product to come along in years. We cater to a segment of the motorcycle market that embraces forward thinking and exotic products like the F3 Adrenaline. We estimate this platform will start an entirely new industry and we want to be a part of that.”

“We believe motorcycle and car enthusiasts are looking for something new and exciting," says Paul Seiter, CEO of TriRod Motorcycles. “The F3 Adrenaline offers people a whole new way to enjoy motorcycling.”

TriRod’s F3 Adrenaline is the first of a line of tandem seat three wheel performance motorcycles under development. The company is taking orders now for the 2008 F3 Adrenaline, which is scheduled to start shipping during the 2nd quarter of 2008.

Yes, for sure, it is a nice bike but I've become a fan of ebikes these days. However, I want to buy with complete coverage for my dealership that's why I am comparing quotes here https://www.insurance4ebikes.co.uk/. Here is my favourite ebike that is very popular among youngsters especially for touring.
