Tortuga Trikes: Gas Powered Drift Trike

May 28, 2014

Category: Rides

Tricycles used to be a toy built just for kids, but since drifting trikes hit the scene a few years back, the popularity of adult-oriented tricycles is on the rise. The folks at Tortuga Trikes are looking to keep that trend moving forward as they debut their gas powered drift trikes.

More than just your standard adult big-wheeler, each one of these Florida built machines has been equipped with a 6.5 horsepower motor. The engine can be powered by any type of gasoline, and thanks to a fairly sizable tank can achieve about 20 hours of run time (that’s nearly 50 miles of drifting). Each trike is capable of hitting a top speed of 30 mph, and with PVC slicks wrapping each of those 10-inch go-kart wheels, we imagine this thing slides all over the place with ease. Stunt pegs are situated on the 20-inch wheel up front, while A-brakes help you come to a screeching halt after hitting the tarmac. There are also 10 different powder coated colors to choose from, helping you stand out from the crowd. Watch the video below to see these thing in action. [Purchase]
