Just got back from talking to my local MotorTrike dealer, they said Motortrike had told them they were coming out with an Independent Suspension model maybe in the next couple of months.

Now that is interesting! They consider the current set up as a semi- independent, by the way the Ladder Bars work. The ladder bars move up, and down independently, and if one side is up the other side is neutral. Solid rear axle but independent movement, not rigid.

Or that is how I understand it. We will find out as time goes on.

I spoke with the factory today, they said that IRS was news to them.
But there are some new products coming in the next several months???
I will let them tell.

I started to call, but didn't, suspecting what the answer would be.

The way Jef Vey has bragged up his present design, I doubt he will change it soon...why change a proven design and the most reasonably priced....

Talked to my MotorTrike dealer today. He called the factory, she told him it that was the fourth call today asking the same thing, and nothing is scheduled in that area. So, it ain't happening. But I got it off the net.......:shrug:

Once you understand how the ladder bar system works in conjunction with the sold axle, and the active air ride, and coil over shocks. It is truly a great suspension setup, and combines the best of both worlds. :doorag:







Maybe I should ask Jeff for a job. :eek:4:

And if the "Don" decides there should be a IRS/MT.....
