Verrado Electric Drift Trike

What is it? Why do you want it? Where can you get it? How much?
Adult-sized kids trike fun, affordable Local Motors $1,699

The Verrado Electric Drift Trike is a weird yet fun-looking little contraption developed by Local Motors. The vehicle, which was funded by a successful Kickstarter campaign, features BMX-inspired styling and a custom fabricated chassis with a trike layout. The front wheel comes straight from a BMX bike, as do the forks. The rear wheels are 5-inch karting wheels wrapped in 10-inch tires, which are then encased in thick PVC wheels sleeves allowing the trike to drift easily.

But the best thing about it? You don't need a hill to have some fun.

Powering the Verrado Electric Drift Trike is a rear-mounted electric motor which drives the two back wheels. The battery pack takes 3 hours to charge, and then provides around 45 minutes of play time. Although the run time is actually pretty varied and depends on the amount of high-power drifting the rider wants to do.

The Verrado Electric Drift Trike uses regenerative braking to improve efficiency and increase ride-time. While a powerful disc brake on the front wheel is there for when you really need to stop.

To make the Verrado Electric Drift Trike more comfortable, itís fitted with a thick-padded and contoured seat, foot pegs either side of the front wheel hub provide somewhere to put your feet up.

The trike come in a variety of four powder coated frame colors; black, white, red and silver.

As Local Motors put it "The Verrado Electric Drift Trike is a bigger, better, motorized version of the big wheel you had when you were a kid. This motorized drift trike is the beefy older brother of that plastic toy, and it skid-stops even better."
