2012 Morgan 3 Wheeler [w/video]

America Helps Britain Bring Back The Trike 2012 Morgan 3 Wheeler - Click above for high-res image gallery It weighs just 1,090 pounds, chuffs out 115 horsepower and 140 pound-feet of torque, and can launch to 60 mph in less than 4.5 seconds. Oh, and you definitely feel every bit of it. The 2012 Morgan 3 Wheeler is a decidedly modernized homage to the trike that inspired it. Beginning back in 1909, this British tripod evolved through a succession of V-twin engines, culminating in 1953, when the last of the original Morgan three-wheeled "cyclecars" rolled off the line in Malvern Link....

    Recalls: Morgan Three-Wheeler puts on the brakes for new recall

    The Morgan Three-Wheeler certainly isn't the fastest performance vehicle money can buy, but it might be one of the coolest. With its V-twin engine hanging out front and styling like nothing else on the road, it draws stares from anyone who sees it and likely a lot of grins from the driver too. As fun as it may be, the quirky roadster is being hit with ...

    Porsche is often mocked for only slightly evolving the look of the 911 over its 50 years of history, but compared to the cars from the Morgan Motor Company, the Germans look like constant innovators. For the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, Morgan plans to bring the most powerful version of its Plus 4 ever, along with the upgraded 2014 Three Wheeler. A countdown ...

    There are any number of adjectives we could come up with to describe the Morgan 3 Wheeler – fun, exotic, playful, retro – but we'd never have thought to compare it to a horse. Interestingly, that's exactly what the blokes from XCAR in the UK came up with while testing out the little British V-twin-powered plaything. So, what does a ...

    The Morgan 3 Wheeler has a special sort of universal appeal: many people will admire it, but only a few will actually buy one. Case in point, Morgan says in a November press release that 1,000 of the 25,950-pound ($41,917) vehicles have been delivered to customers since it was introduced in 2011, and the retro trike is Morgan's top seller.

    The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is recalling 139 Morgan 3 Wheelers, built between October 2012 and July 2013. The recall relates to issues with the brake fluid reservoir, which despite the serious function, is being brought in for quite a silly reason.

    As a glorious rolling anachronism in a line of other rolling anachronisms, we're not surprised that the Morgan 3 Wheeler has found a small but fervent following. But even Morgan execs probably didn't see this coming: the trike is outselling all of the brand's other models – and not by a little bit. According to Autocar, the 3 Wheeler itself will ...

    It seems as though recreational vehicle maker Polaris is taking steps toward the production of quite an interesting, three-wheeled vehicle. Documents filed with the US Patent Office have revealed schematics for a Polaris "reverse trike" – that's two wheels in front and one in back – with seating for a driver and a passenger.
