Light and Heavy Tricycle

LIGHT AND HEAVY TRICYCLES

Be able to use bike in safety in any weather conditions, has always been the dream of many.

Why then no one until now has decided to meet this real need?

The certainty of knowing the exact answer is presumption, but say what you think is useful as well as proper: our reason is that to satisfy this clear market’s need is definitely an attractive business opportunity, but when it goes into the details of the product , it soon becomes clear that the structure of its potential cost is similar to that of a three to four wheels, for which the  economic and commercial success of the business appears uncertain.

Protect the driver from the bad weather conditions albeit in a minimal but efficient way, it requires a “body” which in terms of sizing and mass certainly exceeds the parameters of the abovementioned two wheels, also taking advantage of the latest technology, so that to think of a geometrical configuration that allows you to move on public roads maintaining the balance even under static conditions, more than appropriate becomes necessary.

Build a car for size and weight close to the bicycle, imposes design data of the powertrain as well as nearly all of the components, which highlight immediately the need of the continuous “out standard” problem solving and this notoriously involves large investments in research, design, prototyping and industrialization.

This is the harsh reality cause of the many dreams shattered to realize the car-bike, as long as you don’t like the compromise by assembling what the market offers, so obviously paying result no effective neither efficient.

In other words, if you want to do well, you have to face a great challenge, deciding to act according to the typical automotive production philosophy, taking advantage with innovative technologies, confident in a typical business plan of this industry.

Any player in the market for vehicles could do it and some even very well, but the point is: how much economic advantage they really have doing it?

Minimal Powertrain SA, acts with different logics, and strong of its own faith proposes what can and might be done in his view, to the best of ability of each person that give to her the soul.

For this, we are concretizing the prototype of the Convertible Tricycle, suitable for us to satisfy in economically and healthy way, the need to movement and cargo typically urban and suburban, as well as that of the long-range for those who like to travel in this way.

The logical rigor sometimes tired, so we named Convertible Trike Fast Commuter this innovative vehicle, rather than “The minimal 3.I”.

In fact, its type is “convertible” three-wheel, designed for the transport of people and things, most often known as “cabrio”, so in the “open” and “closed” version.

Equipped with a luggage compartment of over 320 liters, guarantees the easy movement for the driver along with her things for recreational purposes, as well as perfectly meets to several business needs such as postal service and small-medium size things delivery.

Transporting people in tandem position is also possible and safe.

Few more inches in length and/or width, would allow a full functionality for more people with larger volumes, and the production cost as mentioned, it would not been much higher.

But even the functionality of the vehicle and its environmental impact along with its operating costs would be in our opinion totally different.

Deciding to invest in this type of product and how to produce it to have success, it was therefore very problematic and difficult: we are confident, however, for several reasons, that the use and enjoyment guaranteed, will thrill not only who finds himself in our philosophy but also who, while possessing important vehicles, will discover convenient as well as fun let they firm, preferring them this Convertible Trike Fast Commuter to go to the office or at school, take his son, to the grocery store or to do home deliveries.
