A trike for grown-ups, at $40,000

Three-cylinder tricycle isn't the most practical vehicle.

Triketec

If you can't get your hands on an " Armchair Cruiser " (or don't have the guts), there's an alternative to pursue your Wild Hogs fantasy without excessive risk of bodily harm.

The "V2 Roadster" by Triketec is a tricycle on mega-steroids, turbocharged by a three-cylinder engine that can reach 92 horsepower with independent rear suspension. That may seem like a lot for a trike, but be aware that the V2 weighs 1,227 pounds, so it's not exactly something that can be hauled around on a bike rack.

Adding to its inconvenience is the price, which Autopia puts at just shy of $40,000. Still, if you're a wealthy retiree, imagine how much fun you can have terrorizing the golf course.
