Introduced in 1986 by a Swiss team, it was only pedal-powered. The Twike II added an electric motor, and the Twike III became the production-version in 1995. As of today, the firm, with production now based in Germany, claims to have sold over 900 units all over Europe, and a few of them even in the USA.

Sway in pre-production at GOVECS

The Sway tilting trike is now in pre-production at the GOVECS factory in Poland. We presented the Sway a while ago after discovering it at the 2014 EICMA show. http://cleanrider.com/american-entrepreneurs-eicma-sway-fido/ A lot has happened since. In May 2015, Joe Wilcox, Sway’s founder, went on the famous TV show “Shark Tank”, where aspiring entrepreneurs pitch their new product or company to a panel of potential investors. One of them, Mark Cuban, the owner of the Dallas Mavericks basketball team, agreed to invest $300,000 in Sway Motorsports in exchange for 30% of the company.
