Ready to roll: 2008 TriRod F3 Adrenaline


The 2008 TriRod F3 Adrenaline. One, two, three... GO!

Right now, trikes seem to be the hot ticket for those looking for a wild ride, and TriRod’s F3 Adrenaline is right up that alley. Billed by its manufacturers as the ‘world’s first production performance three-wheel motorcycle,’ the F3 weighs 340 kilos, is powered by a 2.0-litre Harley-Davidson v-twin, and costs all of US$55,000! TriRod say that the F3 has been created using ‘advanced technologies from Formula 1 racing, aerospace and motorcycles,’ and that it offers ‘unparalleled performance.’ Hmmm…

Like some other trikes we’ve seen recently, the F3 Adrenaline uses two wheels at the front and one at the back – a layout that’s supposed to offer stable, secure handling, the ability to corner harder at higher speeds, and adequate rollover resistance. Bodypanels are made of carbonfibre, suspension is fully adjustable and transmission is via a six-speed manual-shift gearbox.
