Polaris will reveal soon its newest creation – the fresh Slingshot. The all-new trike will be a canvas for the latest technologies designed by the company and to spice things up before the launch, Polaris has released a short vide teaser which gives us a glimpse at the new model.

Judging by the first shots, the new Slingshot looks quite impressive inspiring a lot of confidence and agility. Its aggressive lines seem to cope well with the trike’s sporty character and set it apart from its other rivals which opted for a less intimidating style.

We also like the pattern used to arrange the front and rear lights and the entire front fascia which makes us think about the cool nose of the Ferrari FXX. The interior is pretty basic, but we’re glad to notice that the trike will be fitted with a manual shifter.

In terms of technologies, the new Polaris Slingshot is rumored to be equipped with features such as traction and stability control, power steering and ABS, but for the moment, there is no official info that can confirm these assumptions.

Next week, Yamaha will reveal its new Tricity three wheeler which will be powered by a 125 cc engine. The new scooter will be based on the three wheeled concept presented by the company in 2013.

Yamaha’s new three wheeler will be lighter than the other models in its class and will also feature a more ergonomic design.

Compared to a conventional scooter, a three wheeler is easier to handle and offers a better stability. Moreover it should also deliver pretty similar levels of efficiency, so the new model has the potential to become a success for the Japanese manufacturer.

The new model will go on sale at the end of 2014, but for the moment, we don’t have any details about the price.

To spice things up before the launch, Yamaha released a teaser video of its upcoming model in which we can also see a pretty detailed look at the company’s second world premiere, namely the all-new 300 cc sport motorcycle which replaces the old 250 cc model.

This fancy looking three wheeler is in fact a pretty interesting vehicle. Due to its configuration, it can be compared to a Segway trike, because it comes with standing stance. Its technological architecture consists of dual rear-wheel hub motors and an electronic differential which helps you move with agility even in the tightest spots. Moreover, you also get a reverse gear which further enhances the maneuverability.

The electric motors are powered by a set of 1.0 KWh Lithium (Interchangeable) batteries which offer a riding range of 24 miles (per battery) and can be fully charged in 3-4 hours. Like you’ve probably expected the Vectrix ES-3 is far from being a speed demon and its motors can send you to a modest maximum speed of only 25mph (40 km/h).

The stopping power is assured by front and rear hydraulic disc brakes.

Kawasaki revealed a completely new concept at the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show. Perhaps it goes without saying, that the new concept looks absolutely fabulous. However, apart from its unique design language the new concept also hosts a series of eco-friendly technologies, namely an electric motor powered by a nickel-metal hydride (NiMH) battery pack.

The most intriguing part of the concept is the fact that is fitted with three wheels which makes it blur the line between motorcycles and four wheelers. Its three wheels configuration give it unique riding abilities and the technology used by Kawasaki to make all wheels work in tandem is pretty similar with the one found at Yamaha’s Tesseract - a hybrid concept presented back in 2007.

Apart from the three wheel configuration the concept is also able to transform according to the rider’s needs. And by “transform” we mean that it can become either short and wide in Comfort Mode or long and narrow in Sport Mode. In this way, you can get maximum performances both in the city and on the open road.

We also get a pretty strange handlebar with separate handles for each hand… so you’ll have to be a pretty good rider to be able to ride one of these.
