They’re not a well-known name in the motorcycle world, at least in North America, but Peugeot has unveiled a concept three-wheeler.
Like the Piaggio MP3 and Can Am’s offerings, the Onyx Megatrike (that’s what they call it!) runs on two wheels in front, one in back. It’s designed to emulate Piaggio’s Onyx car. It’s a hybrid, with both a 400 cc internal combustion engine and an electric motor. Supposedly, the trike can travel 18 miles at 30 mph under electric power.
The Megatrike also features some interesting bodywork; users are able to convert it to either a step-through that emulates scooter styling, or they can leave the bodywork intact, giving it a more sporty look, with rear-set pegs.
Will it ever see production? Who knows? Plenty of car manufacturers mess around with concept vehicles like this, but nothing usually comes of it.
