    Interesting concept, at the price, I can see this thing moving off the show room floor.

    I don't care for bikes that a bobbed and this BRP's version. But kids will probably like it and I think that's the target anyway.

    Oh yes, I agree, it has a very niche market, around town, maybe some off road, short runs, that's about it. Looks like ya can't get a peanut butter sandwich on the thing.

    I've looked it over and would definitely consider it as a first trike, not having a spare $25k to lay down on a used GW trike, for example.

    600cc twin or 900cc triple Rotax should give fairly decent performance. CVT transmission similar to my Honda Silverwing and shaft drive.

    You can get accessories for it which include bags, topbox, alternate seat, windshield. I did an online build with those things and the 900cc motor; came out less than $12k. If you swap in the 600cc motor with the same accessories, right around $10k,

    There's an all-road version (more $$ of course).

    Not a lot of bells and whistles. I'm OK with that.

    I'm a function over form kinda guy, so looks are of secondary importance to me. That said, not exactly the most handsome design out there.

    Definitely sonething to consider when I make the switch.

    Bob, probably lots of lurkers out there just like you where this Ryker is gonna be a good fit. Add the accessories over time as it works for the budget, I gotta go back to the web site, I didn't notice the size of the Rotax engine.

    Here's a link to a 1st. look review. Personally, I would have to go with the big engine. I like the auto tranny with reverse. The Rally edition is calling me.

    I really like the driveshaft part. We travel too many gravel roads to trust a belt with.
