Anyone have any details as to what it looks like? It seems that maybe they are going after the T3 market, but I doubt that will be one wheel foward. Most likely one wheel aft. If it can jump or go over curbs it would kinda have to be one wheel aft, wouldn't it? Unless it has a arm that drops a caster wheel in front to balance or catch it when one quickly dismounts to catch a perp, suspect. Kinda like the Bam third wheel that everyone laughed at years ago.

Perhaps it's a three wheeled Centaur. You know one front wheel that drops forward when they want to go faster.

I'm thinking of some kind of a three wheel version of the "Concept Centaur".

But, at what price?

enjoy your glide...

That sounds feasible, if the third wheel comes down behind at slow speeds for added stability and acts like a caster or outrigger to allow normal lean steer steering of the main wheels.
