You can bet the farm that we won't! Cool No way those would pass any sort of DOT specifications.

Sure would be cool, I'd like one set up to carry another person or two and a small amount of 'stuff'. I doubt US DOT would aggree.

Why wouldn't they? I'm assuming the emissions are up to snuff, and there's plenty of other trikes out there for sale. I think this would be classified as a motorcycle.

Interesting promotional video. Provides a revealing insight into life in a third world country. Remember Bajaj imported a 3-wheel utility vehicle into the US for a number of years. The question is - who would be interested in importing this vehicle into the US. Who would invest the money, go thru the certification process, provide the parts and service back-up, etc. Presumably not Genuine, as they are apparently in the process of severing their relationship with LML. And given that Genuine's problem with LML seemed to mostly center on reliability, it raises another question about any future US importer.

It's interesting how they show him counting money like 3 times. Obviously trying to push the idea that this thing is going to make you some cash.
