Tanom Invader three-wheels its way into Jay Leno's Garage
While trikes can come in a variety of configurations, the Tanom Invader places its Suzuki-sourced Hayabusa motorcycle engine behind a side-by-side two-seat cockpit, driving one giant rear tire instead of the two up front. That makes it different from the Polaris Slingshot (with its front engine/rear drive layout) or the Morgan 3 Wheeler (front engine/rear drive as well), never mind models like the Can-Am Spyder or Piaggio MP3 that fall closer to the motorcycle end of the spectrum, with handlebars (instead of steering wheels) and tandem seats.
What it does resemble – very closely – is the Campagna T-Rex. Having driven the latter a while back, we can imagine the Invader is a whole lot of fun to drive (or ride) as well. At any rate, Jay certainly seems to enjoy it, as you can see for yourself in the video above.
