These new Side-Bike Celtik and Zeus Trikes use car engines combined with space for multiple passengers and loads of luggage to create vehicles optimized for long-distance luxury touring.
Side-Bike Celtik and Zeus Trikes will use a high-power, high-economy 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine and have a two-inch diameter steel tube chassis and carbon fiber bodies. The Zeus features an engine that is housed in the sidecar while the controls are operated from the bike. Passengers sit in the sidecar two abreast, while a third can sit behind the rider on the bike. The Celtik has room for two passengers behind the rider, while a huge tubular luggage case passes through the frame below them. Sales should begin by next summer.
