Trikes Have Racing, 'Cross' Versions

Yamaha's 03Gen-f and 03Gen-x are two takes on the future of three-wheeled scooter design, one staying on the road and one venturing off.

Four years ago we posted on the three-wheeled foam car that made it to the round-of-four in X-Prize competition. Its inventor, Lon Ballard, created the vehicle for the sole purpose of lowering the number of road fatalities and has spent the intervening years refining the idea, and beginning pilot production of electric and gas-powered variants.

It is a dream, however, that may never happen.

Recent patent filings appear to indicate that Yamaha might be thinking about bringing a leaning, three-wheeled electric scooter to the US. While the idea of a trike cycle is hardly new – after all Yamaha already has its own Tricity – this one would have its dual wheels in the back with each one powered by its own electric motor. According to Visor Down, the Japanese company submitted for an application on the same vehicle in Europe, as well.

To those of us who weren't blessed with feathers and wings – hey, at least we've got thumbs, right? – the ability to take to the air, travel huge distances from amazing heights, only to land right back where we started from is the stuff of fantasies.

Sure, we hear about 60-mile-long jams and that motorists in China lose nine days a year to traffic, but until you can actually bear witness to the madness that is rush hour in an Asian city, there's no way to know how bad it is. It makes Los Angeles' 101 freeway seem like a joyous, relaxing day cruise.

The Freego Cuts Walking Time To A Minimum, Doesn't Pollute

Maine freshman state Rep. Brian Mannal, a Democrat from Barnstable, knows how to make an entrance: by Segway.
