T-Rex -- My Kind of Smart Car

I think the motorcycle companies are missing an opportunity. As gas prices climb upward fuel effecient small cars become more appealing. But most of these new small cars look as they took a front bench seat and built a shell around it. I think there is a market for a motorcycle class three wheeler like the Canadian made T-Rex. The T-Rex is classified as a motorcycle and is propelled by a 1164cc Kawasaki engine. Car guys like looks and performance. The T-Rex provides both. Plus, you can save some fuel too. Problem is, the T-Rex is sold at a price point that not many can afford. The big auto makers will not make anything like the T-Rex. The small niche auto makers will not make anything like the T-Rex at a price point, say, around 20K.

That leaves one solution: the major motorcycle manufacturers such as Yamaha, Honda, Kawasaki, Suzuki.
