    Base Price $4150. Base weight 43lbs. Loaded up it’ll be a $5,000. 60 lb. tank! Wouldn’t be my choice but I do like the suspension design.

  2. Just too darn heavy, go the other way, make ‘um lighter or sell them with an electric motor.

  3. Looks very nice however Catrike still are using direct steering which (IMHO) isn’t as instinctive as under seat steering (as on the ICE) I have had a few nasty moments through this type both on a road but must also say that thousands of Catrike pilots seem to find it alright so hey, the other thing is the seat looks a bit far forward but that must be just the way I am looking at it. Nice to see new developments from Catrike.
