My next car?

It’s a bike, wait, no, it’s a car, wait, no, it’s a motorcyle. No, it’s a VentureOne, a damned cool hybrid car/motorcyle that leans dramatically into sharp turns, runs a hybrid or all electric power train yet is capable of 100mph and would, in theory, make a perfect little commuter vehicle which would be a total blast to drive. I can’t get a firm handle on the price, but it’s somewhere between 20-40k. The site has a selection of videos of the thing in action. If it is closer to the 20k end of things I would seriously consider getting one.

    Well that thing looks pretty cool. I would worry about getting in an accident with it though. Not much there to protect you. Still, it is neat to look at. Probably very light and fun to drive I would think.
    Schedule a loaner for AGCW. Don’t worry, we’ll take care of it 🙂

    Now that I think of it. When I was in the UK I saw something similar to this. It used a BMW rear wheel/drive train, engine and tranny of a K100 if I remember correctly. It had 2 front wheels and one rear. Nifty little cockpit for the driver. It was one person only though.
    It was a custom build done by someone quite talented.
    I wonder if DOT would even approve it here in the states…
