Eh? Ridiculous-looking cargo tricycle.

I found this on the made in china website.
Full sized picture here.

It's the most ridiculous thing I have ever seen. Believe it or not, it's powered by a 150CC 4 stroke air-cooled engine. I would LOVE to see one of those things in action, would be great entertainment. I would be amazed if one of those things got to 80km/h on the flat.

you've never been to a poorer country have you or even seen pics of what is done in many places throughout the world?

that bike is a luxury in transportation and the places it will be used are lower speed city enviros or dirt country places. 50-100cc bikes are the norm.

In most developing countries, bikes are very important, and not usually recreationally. Travel to india, thailand, sri lanka....you'll see small bikes do amazing things. a 150 is a big bike over in those parts.

I've been wanting to do something like that to my GF's Suzuki Savage, it just sits in the garage collecting dust, would like to make something useful out of it.

You're a noob that just joined.

Are you tossing this out there to judge market reaction?

Ae you thinking of importing some of these?

I would buy it. Would be awesome if they sold those things at harbor freight. Would use it to bring the race bikes to the track.

Now that's a useful pit bike. No more carrying wheels over to the Pirelli guy,suspension to the factory guy. Hell charge $5 a piece to do it for others. Kernel you're not thinking clearly my man. Drag the crashers back to the pits. Free track days!!!!!!!!!!!!

I like to watch the show "The Amazing Race" just for the views of other countries I'll probably never get the chance to see otherwise (come on lotto!). I always have my eye out for the local bike riders and their rides.

Damn, some of those pics are truly amazing! After seeing all those pics I now realize how much of a luxury the 150cc cargo tricycle really is!
And after re-visiting this thread, I, too, would buy one. Imagine! Something to carry a dirt bike to the tracks with, no need for a car!
Or you could just get a road legal dirt bike, problem solved. Mind you the road registration for the cargo tricycle and the rec registration for the dirt bike together would most definitely work out cheaper than the road registration for the dirt bike, especially if it was a DR650 or an XR600R or a KLR650. But then, you wouldn't be able to go on the freeway with one of those things. Maybe with a big bore kit, an inter-cooler, and a nitrous oxide system...

I guess y'all have never seen any of the same type of vehicle produced by Moto Guzzi? Guzzi started building them in 1928 and didn't stop until 1980. Sizes from 50cc (Dingotre) to 500cc (Ercole).

The Ercole (Hercules) was capable of carrying 1500 kgs/3300 lbs. and was powered by a 500cc single-cylinder engine.
