Drift trikes are making their mark on the action sports and automotive scenes, as the young sport is spreading around the world thanks to Youtube. Conventional drift trikes are not motorized, which means they can only descend hills to bring them up to speed. This simple mechanism renders problematic for areas without suitable hills. Enter Tortuga Trikes, a gas-powered drift trike that can drift on flat ground. Powered by a 6.5 horsepower motor, the tiny but sufficient engine delivers torque directly to the rear wheels. Capable of reaching speeds of up to 30 mph, this trike can run for either 20 hours or 40-50 miles of drifting distance. Check out their website to find out more information on it.
