Harley_leaning_trike.jpg

You’ve seen the patent drawings before, but now it looks like the infamous leaning Harley trike is scheduled for a revealing at Cologne’s Intermot motorcycle show on October 8th. The scoop comes courtesy of our Norwegian friends at MC24, who’s company source has also suggested that the trike will use the 115bhp water-cooled Revolution engine that first appeared in the V-Rod. This new trike, possibly called the Harley Tri Rod, will differ from the 2009 Tri Glide in that the paired wheels will be up front and be capable of leaning into corners. The key to the vehicle’s unique performance will be that lean, which not only means that it runs bike tires front and rear, but that it should be capable of out cornering non-leaning trikes like the Can Am Spyder. We’ll be bringing you full coverage on October 8th.
