Tilting-Vehicle

  • Yamaha’s Tritown personal mobility vehicle was far from the most eye-catching on the floor of the 2017 Tokyo Motor Show, but the company certainly has faith in the three-wheeler's practicality as it moves through a series of field tests with one eye on a developing production version.
  • While some people like the added stability offered by trikes as compared to bikes, the things can actually be tippier when cornering. The Italian-designed Tris Bike addresses that issue, with tilting front wheels that let it lean into turns. It's also got an electric-assist motor.
  • ​If you work in the city but live outside, traveling by train or bus can be much less stressful than taking the car. But the distance from train station to your desk might still be quite a trek by foot. Pim Bicycles is adding another option for the last mile, with the fast-folding Mylo e-scooter.​
  • While no product should ever, EVER, be called a Qooder, this 4-wheeled tilting scoot from Swiss company Quadro looks the goods. With a 400cc version on sale in a matter of weeks, and a high powered electric version on the way, it seems the Piaggio MP3's legacy is in good hands.
  • ​Electric three-wheeled scooters that tilt into turns occupy one of the more interesting spaces when it comes to futuristic vehicle design. Peugeot's new hybrid scooter is no exception, built to weave its way through urban centers and hum along at freeway speeds when the time is right.​
  • Three years ago, Toyota dipped its toes into electric personal mobility with a three-wheeled, tilting two-seater concept called the i-Road. The company has now added extra passenger space and another wheel for a low speed urban runabout it's calling the i-Tril Concept.
  • Flying car developer PAL-V is aiming to make good on its promise to be first to market. Following successful test flights and efforts to meet European and US road and aviation standards, the company has announced that its taking reservations for its dual-engined Liberty three-wheel gyrocopter.
  • West Virginian company ZEV has been quietly building high quality electric scooters for more than a decade now, including the fastest and longest range electric scoots in the world. Now, ZEV's ready to release a long range, tilting 3-wheeler based on the same platform.
  • The absurdly named Narrow Tilting Vehicle with Non-Tilting Wheels (or NTVNTW) is a narrow track reverse trike that promises an amazing cornering experience with 52 degrees of lean and three flat car tires giving a huge grippy contact patch and excellent stability.
  • Unlike cars, motorbikes can topple over fairly easily, making the daily commute a riskier proposition than it would be in a four-wheeled vehicle. The fully-electric EV3 iTank splits the difference, using a three-wheeled setup to offer a more stable, silent ride through traffic.
  • E-bikes are a great alternative to a commute by car. But if you want a little more stability combined with a tight turning circle, Jack Skopinski has built an electric-assist tricycle that makes use of the same exposed tilting mechanism as his EV4 quad bike.
  • As the leaning multi-wheeler scooter class is booming, Yamaha has announced a new addition next to its European best seller, the Tricity 125. The brand new Tricity 155 boasts a larger engine and, although the extra 30 cc may not sound as much, they do make a big difference in the eyes of the law.
