That might be cool for older people or for people who can't ride on 2 wheels due to injury or disability or whatever.. At least its got the wheels configured in the right positions.

What do you think was possessing the first person to think that 1 front/2 rear was a good idea?

probably more of an 'easier to do' situation

is that guy wearing a weight belt?
Sure looks that way. :-\

Maybe it's a way to get some real-world handling feel when loaded down with people + cargo? ???

Personally, I feel that this thing is a close relative to a Ski-Doo sled. The chassis layout and the CVT driveline both scream "roadgoing snowmobile".

Do the front wheels tilt to allow better turning capabilities like that 3 wheeled scooter? I forgot the name of the scooter but there was thread about it in NMC I think.

You're thinkin' of the Piaggio MP3.

I don't think that the Can-Am's wheels "tilt" like the Piaggio. I think this Can-Am trike will be more like a 3-wheeled version of that BMW-powered GG Teknik street quad.

The tires don't really look like motorcycle tires to me, so I don't think the wheels tilt.
