Leave up to inventive Chinese motorcycle company Ice Bear to create something really wild and different. But, U.S. DOT rules and state motorcycle regulations will probably keep the four wheeled version of this great motorcycle design from most U.S. sales. Ice Bear also has a three wheeled version to conform with various U.S. and state regulations.
Although the inventive Xracer model looks difficult to ride, it actually features a fully automatic transmission, making it much easier to handle, as well as adding a more streamlined appearance with the absence of extra add-ons for the clutch and shifter controls.
Although this motorcycle only features a 150cc engine, the awesome four wheeled appearance makes this bike a really cool bit of new bike technology. And it’s many thousands of dollars cheaper than some of those mega-expensive European four wheeled superbikes such as that awesome Swiss-built BMW engined machine.
Once again, Ice Bear proves that you can be cool on a budget.
Update: One of Wizbang Pop’s alert readers notified us that the Xracer is indeed a lower priced near copy of the mega-rare, mega-expensive hand-build Dodge Tomahawk, a 300mph V-10 engined monster bike machine with a price tag of $555,000 per copy. So far, only 9 exist. Note the close appearance of the two bikes.
While the Tomahawk has a clear performance advantage, the much lower priced Xracer does leave the buyer with some change left in their pocket.
