BykaTryka, which supplies Piaggio three-wheelers in North London, Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Essex, has developed its own trike based on a Piaggio 50 (the Ape mini-van).
The three-wheeler SK8 has a 49cc engine – which means that it can be ridden by a 16-year old on a CBT licence – and is more stable and practical than a two-wheeler. It can carry up to 200kg of luggage and has four gears plus reverse; its rollover bars offer more protection in the event of a crash than an exposed upright two-seater.
BykaTryka also offers a 218cc version, which is supplied mainly to delivery companies and other commercial users; its stall in London shows a customised trike used by catering firm Rafikis of St Albans. article continues below
I would imagine the 49cc one would be more of a hazard to other road users, and it doesnt look very visible….some car drivers have problems seeing a double decker bus…..they aint never gonna see that! [:0]
