Our 3 wheel rocket, taking its power from the Yamaha R1

TR1KE Sports Kit-car

If you want motorbike performance with the safety of car like handling then you need look no further than the tR1ke. Simply buy a kit and add the engine and rear wheel from a Yamaha R1. It’s fast, fun and has extraordinary levels of grip due to the low centre of gravity, add the simplicity of assembling the tR1ke and this could be just the kind of project that your pocket money has been waiting for.


The fully triangulated space frame chassis has been designed to achieve an extremely high level of torsional rigidity. The framework absorbs loads highly efficiently at the node points, such as the roll hoop and suspension tops. Designed using computer simulated loads and then refined with real world testing at over 2000 ft/lbs per degree of deflection.


The engine chosen is from the Yamaha R1 motor cycle. These units offer a superb compromise between cost and their power to weight ratio. In standard guise these 998cc units put out 150 bhp. Add that amount of power to a car that only weighs in at a third of a ton and you are looking at a shattering 450bhp per ton!


You have complete control over the ride quality of the tR1ke. Ride height and damping of the all round coil over shock absorbers can be adjusted. The perfect feel can be achieved to suit your style of driving. There is also a choice of steering racks, the standard 3.8 turns lock to lock or a quicker 2.8 option.
