Honda Developing Leaning Three-Wheeled Motorcycle


Quote:
Piaggio brought leaning three-wheelers into the industry mainstream with its MP3 scooter in 2006, with similar vehicles later introduced by Quadro 350D in 2012 and the Peugeot Metropolis in 2013. More recently, Yamaha released the Tricity as the first in a new family of leaning multi-wheel vehicles.

Hmmm The folks over at Mother Honda are always thinking . It's interesting . Folks for years have wanted a factory trike . Maybe they will expand it up to the Wing chassis

At 73 I am still able to hold up my wing but I am looking at my choices when I become a little less mobile. A leaning three wheeler would be a good choice for me especially if it were produced by Honda.

Why stop with leaning? How about adding features like it self starts, opens the garage door, backs itself out, warms up, parks itself in a nearby spot (not just backs in) ? These are the new features coming out in cars.

Just kidding, I'm getting up there in years myself and I'm worried about become a 2 wheel menace to myself and others.

We started out on an 89 1500 then when we were getting ready to retire moved up to a 97 and had it triked, now last year we got a 2012 1800 and we are looking at a sidecar. We are still OK on two wheels but at 71 don't know how long that will last and want to try something different while we still can.

97 GW soon to be triked
2012 GW planning to add sidecar next yr

At 73 1/2 I'm doing Ok for now, but what about my future? I like the trike idea, but after reading of LTW's, I think they're a much better choice.

And still riding...
I just regrets the things I haven't done.

I'm 53. I bought a trike for my girlfriend, (now ex GF) we were going to an American Legion Rally in northern VA. She didn't like to drive it on the highway's much, so I drove it up there. I told her that is the reason I got it, for trips we go on, I left my fat boy at home. after driving it, I went in search of a Goldwing that was triked. I like the trikes, the room when I go out to buy items at stores, I have plenty of room, in stead of just 2 small saddle bags. and a purse. I LOVE it. it took a while to learn or get over riding like a 2 wheeler,
