Morgan To Release New 3-Wheeler Body Styles And New Range Of Engines.

morgan1morgan2Morgan3Morgan is happy with the success of its 3 wheelers, both in volume and with the young generation. 600+ units should be sold this year, more than the 4-wheel version. “The company is deciding whether to continue making models on traditional steel chassis or to move to a single platform that could be used for traditional and modern cars. There are strong financial arguments for both” says chairman Charles Morgan.

Retro look, low slung to aid grip, handling, stability and an S&S engine mated to an MX-5 gearbox seems to interest not only grey mustached gentlemen but also bikers of different generations looking for something looking very cool and more sophisticated thnt the usual trikes.

    A perfect match for the Wedge.

    But putting one in a three-wheel drift and stomping it out of a turn would be thrilling.

    For 45k I would get a Confederate in a heartbeat (the cheap one that is) – much better employment of a X-Wedge…

    I like it… i might prefer paddle shift set ups or shifter cart configuration

    Not sure about this. Looks a bit basic for the money. Would prefer a bike anyday

    My neighbor bought a new one last year and says he has about $50,000 in it. I’ve toured the factory and it’s a cool operation, very throwback, in a good way. But the new basic C7 Vette stickers at $52.000.

    I prefer the Honda horizontal 6 in the Goldwing. Looks like a car, reliable as sunrise and if they’d add the auto feature one trick 3 wheeler. Plus drive train to the rear already to go.

    That is if you want to take the old into the modern. Otherwise, an old V-Twin is ok if that’s the best you can do in keeping with the vintage look of that’s all they had back then.

    @ksw, true, but they’d to design an entirely new vehicle to use the Flat 6 engine and since it’s water cooled they’d have to hide a radiator or have a whole new look. Also, the F6 is a very long engine compared to the V2 . I think the original Morgan had it’s gearbox behind the driver (anyone?) so you’d have a lot of work to do separating the transmission from the F6. Bet you could make a cool miniature Vintage Indy car with the Honda motor though ☺

    ksw,A GoldWing six would be too big and heavy and ruin the Morgan’s sports car like handling and the road,and on rough dirt roads.I know a guy who’s got a Honda ST1100 motor in a Morgan type of thing but the motor is well back behind the front axle and because of that it handles fine.
