BMW-Powered GG Taurus Trike Is Can-Am Rival
The big-bore unit is capable of developing 175 bhp at 9,250 rpm and 140 Nm of torque at 8,250 rpm, while being coupled with a 6-gear transmission. We have to tell you that the gearbox has been fettled to include a reverse gear.
The Taurus weighs 397kg without fuel or rider and has a massive 34 litre fuel tank to improve its cruising range. The manufacturer claims a top speed of 220km/h (137 mph) .
European owners can ride the vehicle without a motorcycle licence, needing only a car licence. There is no word whether the Taurus will see any other continents soon, as the three-wheeler has only been homologated for Europe at this stage.
GG also has on offer the four-wheeled GG Quad and GG Quadster, but which are both difficult to get on the road in many countries. The former is powered by an R1150 BMW Boxer engine and the latter by a BMW K1300 unit.
comments written so far
But I do love this machine. I got to see the GG Quad when it was on a promotional run here in the S.F. Bay Area and it was AWSOME. If they can bring this machine (the Taurus) in at a competitive price point it will blow thew Spyder away.
