That's interesting. If I heard correctly it has a 300 hp DC motor which he claims you can rewind the armature if you want to tune it to your taste. Think that will happen much?

A quad would make more sense for this type of vehicle. Unfortunately, only two and three wheel vehicles can be sold in the US, without having to comply with all the federal crash tests and other hoopla. They wanted very aggressive cornering ability. For a trike, that means making it very wide, for roll stability. That thing has an 80.5" track width. You wouldn't want them passing on a two lane road. :-(
