2009 Brudeli 654L Leanster: Lean on this!


This picture of the Brudeli 654L Leanster says it all, doesn't it...

We first wrote about the Brudeli 625L back in November 2006, and now, almost two years on, Brudeli are finally ready with the production version – the 645L Leanster. To be presented at the Intermot show in Germany next month, the 654L is based on a KTM 690 Supermoto, is TÜV approved, and will be street legal in Europe. This amazing trike will be priced at 21,000 euros (US$30,000).

The Brudeli 654L Leanster leans into corners like a regular motorcycle, but with two wheels at the front – and hence more traction than you’d get with just one wheel – the vehicle is capable of pulling off some amazing feats, especially on snow, gravel and other similar surfaces.

Designed by Atle Stubberud of Soon Design, the Brudeli Leanster is powered by KTM’s 655cc, single-cylinder LC4 engine, which makes 63bhp and 65Nm of torque. A six-speed gearbox, tubular steel chassis and fully adjustable WP suspension complete the package. The Leanster rides on 17-inch wheels, weighs 238 kilos and has a top speed of 170km/h.
