Introducing the VentureOne, a revolutionary 3-wheel, tilting, plug-in Hybrid vehicle. This unique 2-passenger flex-fuel Hybrid vehicle will achieve 100 miles per gallon with a top speed of over 100 mph. Target price: $18,000.
Although classified as a motorcycle, the VentureOne is a fully enclosed vehicle that is surrounded by a steel “safety cell” and other safety features typically found only in cars—things like side impact beams, driver airbag, rear bumper and engine shield. In addition, the VentureOne will contain standard and optional equipment identical to conventional motor vehicles – including GPS navigation, cruise control, HVAC, and personal entertainment.
A QuickTime video from Top Gear shows just how much fun driving this type of vehicle can be. As someone who commutes almost 100 miles a day, I'd probably buy this in a heartbeat if it has a reasonably comfortable ride.
