at the International Motorcycle Exposition in Milan. Have no idea if or when it is US bound. I was surprised to read it's a 125cc bike. Expected pricing to be below 4000 Euros.

That really is pretty cool. Glad they came out with that design - I was getting worried that I wasn't spending enough on tires! :rolleyes:

Kind of a waste at 125. The mp3s are slow at 250 compared to regular 250s, extra weight and all.

You've gotta remember your target audience. I doubt that even one purchaser of such a machine is thinking about high performance! I like the way that the two independently suspended front wheels make it possible to lean in a way that you can't on a rear-wheeled trike.

I too think it is a very cool looking scoot. Upright seating position without the ability to position the legs forward make this an around-town, short haul ride. I don't think a bigger engine would change this. Hope to see the Tricity in my town one of these days.

All new within (approx.) the year. If you love scooters, you gotta like this trend.

Hey Jeff, thats a cartoon drawing, she has 3 fingers and a thumb.

Reverse trikes (2F1R) will out number old style trikes (1F2R) three to one soon. So much more stable in a corner.

Dave - I live in Tinseltown, and I know for a fact that Jessica Rabbit turned down the photo shoot, and they had to settle for a real woman. Then again, I can't explain the fingers issue, and the horn does go 'meep meep.'
