- Adjustable rider's backrest over 40 mm

Like a number of other three wheelers the front two tilt in unison when cornering, so it corners more like a bike than a car and one button press under 6 mph will lock it in upright mode for parking / slow moving traffic with it auto-releasing as you add more throttle again.
Another cool and somewhat practical feature, alongside the usual but smallish underseat storage and 12V equipped glovebox, is an actual car style boot for your helmet with interior light.
Accessories include hand guards, taller pillion backrest, satnav, top box, side wind protectors, footplates, tall screen and a special U-lock that fits both front wheels.
It's available in two versions with 9-spoke 12" wheels, taking 120/70 tyres at the front and 140/70 at the rear.
