Turbine-engine sound is just so cool.

Looks like a good package with a real price. They need to make sure it qualifies for the USA 10% refund.

Too expensive for my tastes, but I wholeheartedly agree with the idea. I'd love a single or tandem seat, electric 3-wheeler to get me around. I see no point in pushing enough air around for a vehicle that seats two side-by-side for no apparent gain. But they never made Sparrows legal here (as far as I know). Being a Canadian company, I'll assume they will make them legal here and, preferably, not require a motorcycle license to drive.

26 days...let's see if they honor it!

Check the local state DMV to see whether a trike is a motorcycle or not.

It is in every state that I know of as long as it's under 1,200lb.
Many states also realize that it's enclosed, offering head protection and eye protection.

Quirky but handsome. Looks like a conventional coming at you, then it looks like it's missing its rear.

Safe handling performance and stability

I want one. I love the idea. I just don't like the price tag. I don't think most other people will either, so I don't predict them being produced for long...maybe they can hold on long enough to mass produce them and drive down the cost per unit?
