Who needs a new truck? (motorcycle)

Found this on ebay, looks interesting, new and a 2 year warranty.
It goes 50MPH and up to 72 mpg, I know some of you guys could break
100mpg easy with this puppy. It might need a couple of aero mods.

sipnciv -

I think that would be perfect for someone with a local street commute and "something to advertise". If you put 70+ MPG on the side of it, people would believe you. It looks a lot like the Zenn electric trucks. Or maybe a gardener's mini truck for large campuses.

It looks like a Cushman.

It looks like something Mr. Bean would bump out of parking spaces with his mini.

(What was that 3 wheeled little blue van anyway?)

Yes street legal!(motorcycle)

The link to the ebay ad is below the pic for anyone who wants all
the details.
I called Tom from the ad. He said it is street legal and will be registered
as a motorcycle.
Sorry about the misinformation, it's not a truck but a motorcyle.
I guess you need a motorcycle license.
Lots more pics on the link.

I'd be afraid of hitting the brakes in a turn in that thing.
Trikes are safest with a single wheel in the back.

Took the words out of my mouth. I've never been a fan of delta trikes for the road... In an emergency what do you do? Brake and steer. Bad combo for a delta trike
