This is a three-wheel motorcycle.
Pro/ENGINEER saved me (Peter Ginzburg) time to design this machine from 200 hours to 116 hours. With Pro/ENGINEER I was able to create this design in 58% less time.
It has a motorcycle engine and a motorcycle-type swing arm suspension. The front of the machine is car based, including a car-like steering wheel, turning systems and suspension. If this vehicle were to be produced, it would offer motorcycle speed, car-like handling and near car safety. This product would fit into the marketplace between a motorcycle and a car. Because it is simple in design, this machine would cost less than a car; yet provide fun that can only be experienced on a motorcycle.
