Freebeard, Botsapper referred to that part
It had a semi-complete interior and was powered by the prototype 3-cylinder engine. They noticed the shift linkage was not smooth, the exhaust system unrefined, creaked and rattled, and the engine mapping was not tuned. Also, there was noticeable aroma of gasoline inside the trike.

I know someone with a Can-Am Spyder. She was not allowed to drive her family's cars because she broke a rim on a side street. She wrecked her scooter while walking it. She backed a car into a truck. The one time I allowed her to drive I kept saying things like "Stay in your lane!" "That wasn't a stop!" and she just laughed at me.

She has had all kinds of problems with the trike, but as far as I know, she has not caused any. I believe she bought it new, but it looks like the warranty is only twelve months. We do not talk much, but she had mentioned at least a couple different repairs, the seat cover has huge rips, and someone stole her trunk lid.
