Campagna Motors have announced a new trike – the T-Rex 16S – which is powered by the 1649cc inline-six from the BMW K1600GT. The six-cylinder engine produces 160bhp and 175Nm of torque and is mated to a sequential 6-speed transmission (plus one reverse gear…). Final drive is by chain. The T-Rex 16S has fiberglass bodywork with carbonfibre accents, and has adjustable seating for two along with adjustable ergonomics.
Like its predecessor, the Kawasaki ZZR1400-engined T-Rex 14R, the 16S is a very high-performance trike and its chassis and suspension are optimized for high-speed handling. There’s a double-wishbone set-up at the front and dual coil over spring at the back, while the tubular steel chassis has a rollcage bolted on to it for additional occupant safety. Other bits include 3-point safety belts, cross-drilled brake rotors, waterproof seats, removable side cases for luggage and a high-end audio system with Bluetooth etc.
While the 2013 T-Rex 16S will now be their top-end trike, Campagna say they’ll also continue with the Kawasaki-engined T-Rex 14R and the Harley-engined V13R. More details of the T-Rex 16S here
