In November 2014, Joe Wilcox, founder and CEO of the American company SWAY Motorsports, approached our booth at the EICMA trade fair in Milan. He brought with him an Alpha prototype of his latest developments and the recommendation that GOVECS had “the guys that are able to implement that”.
The idea clearly sparked a lot of interest and it was decided that GOVECS was the manufacturer of choice to get “SWAY” to serial production. The prototype was then sent to the Polish city of Wroclaw and was put to the acids there by our team of engineers. This specific technical challenge regarding this innovative OEM product is the so-called “Tilting” concept. It means that the driver controls and steers the SWAY by distribution of pressure/weight transfer on the two front wheels.
The extraordinary and futuristic vehicle design necessitates a new development of the following components:
Joe Wilcox travelled to Europe from the USA only to fine-tune the details with our engineering team in Wroclaw within a period of four weeks. “I am highly satisfied“, Wilcox said, and we are glad to see SWAY as serial product capturing the West Coast of the USA.
