In the works at Bryan Fuller’s Hot Rods shop, this three-wheeler uniquely built to handle and lean like a traditional two-wheel sport bike thanks to TreMoto’s patented technology. When Bryan Fuller, owner of first saw TreMoto’s Monstrosity 620 with leaning vehicle suspension he said he immediately thought, “Wow, that’s how a trike should be made.” “The concept takes the perception of a trike to new levels – more nimble and fun to ride than your traditional trike”, says Fuller.
TreMoto, LLC is a company in Wisconsin devoted to pushing the limits of engineering with innovative ideas like leaning suspension technology. The TreMoto concept was created by Eddie Smith and Rob McIver. The many features of the TreMoto suspension system include the 45 degrees of cornering lean angle, fully adjustable independent suspension, and lean brake. The advantages of the leaning reverse trike are both safety and performance oriented. The leaning suspension gives it the cornering speeds of a motorcycle, with the increased stability, traction, and braking that a third wheel provides. The lean brake can be engaged in order to lock the lean of the trike, to be used to avoid high-side accidents and putting your feet down at stops. The vehicle’s capabilities both on and off road are said to be amazing, doing things you’d never expect out of a 2 wheeler or traditional 3 wheeler.
Fuller Hot Rods will be consulting closely with TreMoto throughout the 14-18 month build to convert a Triumph Speed Triple bike. Fuller intends to keep a lot of the original Speed Triple parts intact, due to its already existing fast platform and impressive handling.
Fuller Hot Rods design plans include: reengineering of the bike’s front end to accommodate for two wheels and increased weight suspension/steering components; upgrading of the brakes to include a Beringer super light equipment performance braking system and ARP 12-point stainless steel fasteners; as well as modification of the front suspension to allow tires the ability to lean up to 30 degrees left and right.
