That is a sidecar. I saw one like it last year in Vermont. I think the sidecar is built by Hannigan. The one that I saw has Honda car tires all around since the rig does not lean but slides around some corners. Very slick.

that MIGHT BE Bombardier's new three wheeler that they are going to release at a press conference in the fall.

It's *suppose* to be hush-hush. The rumor is they took the bike to Deals gap and asked Killboy to NOT PHOTO the bike. But like idiots, they never got it in writing.

So guess what, he took a pix :lol:

Previous post said it "slides" around corners, looks like that may be true. Looks like the passenger is wearing a diver's weight belt, that can't be good:

Maybe just as simple as simulating a heavier passenger?

That looks like 40+ pounds of weight. That is a bunch of weight around your waist. Whatever it is looks awsome though.

I saw a similar vehicle last year on the Blue Ridge Pkw. Built more like a 3 wheel car than this "bike". They used the BMW drive-train off the 1200. It was 1 of 5 imported last year. At least that was what the guy said.

But the weights look extremely dangerous to me! Any kind of mishap
could result in massive internal injuries to the person wearing them.

There is a "Motorcycle Accident Lawyer" drumming up business that is always at the "Rock Store" up on Mulholland Hwy and is usually at motorcycle events like the "Love Ride" or RIP's B.A.D. Ride here in Southern California.

I always wondered what that 3-wheeler was that he rode, now I know, It's a T-Rex!

If you go to www.motorcycle-usa.com
There is a story about this trike. It is a factory Bombardier. Looks like the factory will be selling the "Spyder" real soon. They are going to show this new style trike Feb.8th. Bombardier makes the Aprilia 1000cc engine which makes 139hp. They wonder if this is the engine to be put into these trikes.

The official launch in February 9th, That coincides nicely with the International Motorcycle Show opening in Chicago this weekend. I'm going and hope to take some pictures. According to the website, WI is one of the limited number of states its being released in so we'll have them in stock where I work. Can't wait to see and ride one!

OK, Bombardier, it needs hard saddlebags for the rear, if its going to be a "touring" machine. Cough em up. :wink:
