The Moto Guzzi-powered Blackjack Zero
Involved in the design, development and production of trikes since 1995, Blackjack are now ready with their latest creation – the Zero – which is fitted with a v-twin engine from Moto Guzzi. (On their website, Blackjack have not specified which Guzzi engine, but we think it'll be the 1200cc v-twin.) Designed by Richard Oakes, the Zero, according to its creators, “delivers the excitement of a bike, with greater comfort, more sociability and a reverse gear.’ Er, more sociability? Oh, well, anyway…
The front-wheel-drive Zero’s bodywork comprises of a fibreglass tub with reinforced bulkheads, and the chassis is made of tubular steel. Rack-and-pinion steering, wishbones and adjustable coil-over-damper shocks at the front, and a trailing swingarm and monoshock complete the package. The Zero rides on 17-inch wheels, shod with 215/40 ZR-rated tyres and the 450-kilo trike can seat two people in comfort.
