Triking Type 4 information and pricing.
“Exceptional Engineering Evolving …”
The Triking Type 4 has evolved as a natural progression from the well-established previous Triking models.
Utilising the Moto Guzzi engine and drive train from the well-regarded range of “CARC” motorcycle models the Type 4 features a revised cockpit area offering greater occupant comfort with improved leg and foot room notably around the pedals and controls. The resulting overall dimensions are inevitably larger than previous models while retaining the definitive, distinctive Triking proportions. The Type 4 represents refinement and subtle “modernisation” while consolidating positive attributes and of course the unique character of Tony Divey’s original Triking design dating back to the 1970s.
Extensive development, research and testing has resulted in a chassis, steering and suspension combination which provides extremely precise handling and road holding, ideally suited to Moto Guzzi`s well proven drive train. This exhaustive process consisted largely of the traditional approach of prototype manufacture, experimentation, thorough testing and probably most importantly “real world” proving.
Manufactured using a combination of conventional metal fabrication techniques and advanced CAD, CNC component engineering, the Type 4 has an innovative spaceframe/ backbone/panel chassis providing the optimum in performance, rigidity and longevity without undue weight. Semi stressed bodywork is laminated in GFRP incorporating strategic Kevlar re-enforcement providing additional side impact protection.
Synonymous with build quality Triking Sports Cars are bespoke hand crafted in England using traditional techniques while incorporating modern construction methods where advantageous. Performance, Longevity, practicality and dependability are prime design considerations.
Raw materials and components are sustainably sourced within the UK and Europe.
Despite obvious superficial similarities to the previous Triking Type 1,2, and 3 models the Type 4 is a dedicated design therefore with the exception of some universal parts few components from previous models interchange with the Type 4.
The Triking Type 4 uses the Moto Guzzi engine, drive train and front brakes from any of the range of “CARC” big block engined bikes i.e. Norge, Griso, Sport, Breva and Stelvio (Slelvio model has some minor suspension differences) The advantages of this range of donor bikes over previous Moto Guzzi models include…..
Smoother transmission with 6 speed gearbox and hydraulic clutch, more compliant rear suspension with improved traction control and reduced un sprung weight, improved engine power characteristics with greater torque, cleaner emissions and favourable fuel economy.
The Type 4 is available made to order as a comprehensive kit or fully built “turn key” car, it is MSVA compliant and can be supplied either Right or Left-hand drive.
Further options will become available where appropriate and as development continues.
