Video Threewheeled leaning Z1000
Mullholland Highway vs Kawasaki reverse trike
YAMAHA keeps threatening to build a tilting three-wheeler with a proper engine, but these chaps have already done it.
US firm Tremoto puts its three-wheeled Kawasaki Z1000 to the test of LA’s Mullholland Highway and its infamous Snake Pass in a video posted on YouTube.
A rider can be heard in the video saying: ‘It definitely feels heavier. You’ve got to muscle it around a bit more. Have you ever ridden a racing quad? It’s sort of like riding that.
‘You need to hang off, you need to muscle it. You feel comfortable doing that… It’s not quite as knife-edge balanced as a bike. It leans and stuff but you’ve got to make it turn.’
He adds: ‘I’m not going to sit here and tell you it can’t crash… It’ll still high-side you.’
Tremoto is also developing a three-wheeled Yamaha Super Ténéré and Ducati Hypermotard.
