Here's a problem for you. You're married, therefore a spouse, and you've got two teenage kids. You want to ride a motorcycle, but a bike will only hold one passenger. What are you going to do? Give up your dream?
Not if you let side-bike help you. They've got some very nice sidecar motorcycles, and the nicest part is that they are homologated for 3 passengers!
Here's the ZEUS:
This sci-fi looking motorcycle is approved for 2 sidecar passenger, plus pillion. The sidecar portion has seatbelts. You can even tow a trailer with it (maximum permitted weight for the trailer is 300 kgs).
The Zeus is equipped with a 2 liter Peugeot (the car) engine , with 133 HP and 19,5 mkg at 4100 rpm. The motorcycle has two wheel drive (that's the rear wheels).
The gas tank will hold 28.5 liters of that precious petrol.
The heating for the sidecar is adjustable, and it even has interior lights.
The luggage compartment can hold up to 400 liters of luggage. Shit... you could probably fit in a spare motorcycle...
The Zeus motorcycle will fetch 195 kph on the motorways, so it's no slouch.
Price: The standard version costs €28,800.00 (the price of a good Goldwing), but they have loads of optional extras.
They have international dealers.
Now, if that's not enough for you, let's have a look at the CELTIC:
The Celtic motorcycle is more outrageous. It's a very modern design, and looks more like a stretch hot-rod limo.
Like the Zeus, it's powered by a 2 liter engine, developing a monumental torque. This limousine on three wheels actually transmits its power directly to all THREE wheels (TWD - Three Wheel Drive).
The motorcycle/trike can have TWO passengers!
The motorcycle's trunk holds 340 liters of space. The 3-Wheel drive is ABS equipped.
Price: The Celtik Roadster starts at €24,600.00 and the Celtik Touring at €27,200.00
