Something new...

It's called the "Spyder Roadster" and is manufactured by Can-Am, a division of Bombardier Recreational Products...better known for personal watercraft (A.K.A. "jet-skis") and snowmobiles.

Here's the website.

In a reversal from the typical "trike" arrangement, rather than having two wheels in back and one in front, these are t'other way around.

It's an interesting concept, and is stabilized around corners and such by computer-aided technology.

I think I'd be more inclined to get a conventional trike if I was to get one at all, or perhaps the old "tried and true" sidecar rig.

But like other alternative vehicle concepts I've posted about, the "Roadster" is neat to look at, if nothing else...

I'm old fashioned, for offroad fun just give me an old Kawasaki enduro motorcycle...

Nice, but 3-wheelers are available in abundance...

See HERE, HERE, and HERE.

For offroad, I like dirtbikes and ATV's, but the "Roadster" isn't for that.
(Hence the name)

Hawkeye®:
Three wheelers are available in abundance, 'tis true...but the ones in your links are cars.

Beerme:
I think they're playing the odds that they'll (at least) break even. I'm sure they'd like to do (much) better than that, though.

As for wings? I'll take "buffalo" wings...

Odd indeed! Personally I prefer to be surrounded by something solid. Probably no safer but the illusion is comforting!
