Morgan (http://www.morgan-motor.co.uk/), the iconic British brand founded by Harry Morgan, is launching this new 3 Wheeler model with a sporty bullet shape and exposed chassis design reminiscent of the 30′s but updated with a 21st century technology (see design evolution in a video after the jump.) How to call this machine with a “Race On Sunday” philosophy? A Trike, Sport Car, Speeding Bullet, Pod Racer? Let others decide when you start and launch down the road your missile equipped with a polished S&S fuel injected V-Twin engine (approved on US and European roads) mated to a Mazda 5 speed transmission with reverse. Let’s trust Morgan when they state that weight of the engine is counterbalanced by the mass of the passengers and that this 3 Wheeler has a planted feel with a very low centre of gravity to ensure it remains glued to the road.



Unique decals are available and include special designs including US military and British Air Force inspired logos, oval racing numbers and stripes, a fearsome shark nose, chequered winner’s bonnet, official national flags and the Morgan wings. Bespoke leather and paint, polished engine, stainless steel tailpipes, cowl, polished cowl,headlamps and roll hoops are extra cost options. Pricing starts at 25,000 (US$34,500).

What do you think? I think it's sweet, but the price tag hurts.

It appears to house S&S's latest design V-Twin, a 60 degree short stroke.
