4 wheels??

Post by Cereb Daithi » Wed Dec 02, 2009 7:01 am

So I was driving the other day and passed something that really caught my attention. A 4 wheeled motorcycle.... Does anyone know what this could be? I have looked online and it seemed similar to the Yamaha Tesseract but as far as I can find, that was never put into production.

are you absolutely sure it had four wheels?

i know the piaggio mp3 is a relatively popular 3-wheeled scoot. could it have been this?

It was much sportier than that and looked a lot like this

The front wheels were closer together though (like on on a tomahawk but not quite that close). What caught my attention was how one wheel was higher than the other in the turn. Really made me stare and wonder about the engineering.

I dont think it was that Yamaha since it never hit the market. It's just what it reminded me of.
