Video: The making of the T-Rex super trike

Maybe it’s just me, but it seems like these three-wheeled vehicles are all the rage with designers these days. They all boast two wheels in the front for manueverability, but a single fat tire in the back, presumably for thrust (like on a bike). The T-Rex is being touted as a “three-wheeled motorcycle” with room for two people, but with its futuristic styling and less than modest engine, it’s actually quite peppy.

The 1.2L four-banging engine is enough to propel this trike (officially classified as a motorcycle) to speeds of up to 225km/h (140mph). The 0-60mph time is pretty impressive at 4.1 seconds, but while inside, it feels more like a track car with its side-by-side seats, adjustable backs, and 3-point retractable safety belts. That said, you operate the manual transmission with your hand.
