    The link you have provided is no good. I suggest changing it to this one:

    This is nothing more than a KMX trike with a motor and huge battery pack. It has already been done before by Outrider with the Alpha trike. That trike at least was done better than shoving a bunch of batteries under the seat and raising the seat 4 inches. Their price is outrageous too, especially if you want the full spec. $12,199!

    It is a knock off of the Outrider USA, Alpha, and Horizon, E-trikes exactly to the frame motor everything, and I’m sure the are receiving soon a cease, and desist, notice from the attorney of Outrider USA real soon…!

    It may look similar to the Outrider, but as I see, the Odyssey actually claims longer ranges, and the math works out. I, for one, want to see these young guys be successful and I think they have something here if they’re doing it better than their competitors.

    I looked into these odyssey trikes more and they have units that have the same range as outrider’s 420 ($16,985!) for $9,500, and these things are supposed to go faster. Drew, what are your thoughts on that? The full spec trike has a 300 mile range and a 65 mph top speed, so… I’d personally go with the Odyssey and leave the Outrider in my dust, and forget about paying an outrageous $17k for an inferior trike.

    Pshh I agree with Neil. Outrider’s best trike is 4 kWh and Odyssey blows past that with up to 7.1 kWh. Thats a serious battery. And that trike is several thousands cheeper. get off these guys backs and realise they’re doing it better for cheeper
