The steering also means a tighter turning circle and significantly improved maneuverability as it can slalom between obstacles and lean into curves like a motorcycle. As it is ideally suited to negotiate narrow, or congested streets, TRIX is ideal for city centre life and can be adapted to transport goods or become a space-age rickshaw with a single, front-seated passenger…”

This is one cool bike! Here is the link.
