Power is provided by a 1300CC Suzuki Hayabusa engine that is capable of delivering up to 160 horsepower. The pneumatic leaning system, which also adjusts the vehicle’s ride height in accordance to the weight of the driver, is Davis’ own design.

The vehicle is the creation of Ohio-based electrical engineer Don Davis. “The traction and “biker cool” of a fat chopper tire in the back. Probably the most important feature was that I wanted to “feel the road” the way you do on a motorcycle. No other vehicle has the same connected to the road feel that a motorcycle has, not until now that is.”

“Our long travel suspension system coupled with the unique pneumatic leaning system automatically adjusts ride height and compensates for weight, but more importantly, it leans the vehicle into corners like a motorcycle. No more sliding out of your seat (or off you conventional trike) when cornering.”
