A 3-wheeler with the joys of both bike and car

Design Industry has developed a series of computer-generated models of the two-seater Strike Trike, which is powered by a Suzuki Hayabusa 1340cc motorbike engine, matched to a six-speed sequential gearbox.

Melbourne: An Australian design firm is attempting to provide riders the feel of a motorcycle and the comfort of a car in a locally engineered three-wheeler.

Design+Industry has developed a series of computer-generated models of the two-seater Strike Trike, which is powered by a Suzuki Hayabusa 1340cc motorbike engine, matched to a six-speed sequential gearbox.

Its power output is close to 150kW, similar to a Volkswagen Golf GTI and the makers claim the lightweight vehicle can accelerate from zero to 100km/h in 3.5 seconds, rivaling a super car.

Strike Trike is also incorporated with a targa-style roof mechanism for letting the sun in during warmer months, reports the Sydney Morning Herald.

The designs are in accordance with the brief demanding a commercially manufacturable vehicle with an eye-catching, sporty exterior and comfortable, user-friendly interior and comply with the Australian Design Rules.
