Tanom Motors To Unveil Invader Model R High Performance Reverse Trike in 2014
We’ve noticed most three-wheelers on this site get a bad reception from you, our faithful MO readers, so we’re interested in hearing your thoughts on the Tanom Motors Invader Model R. A reverse trike very similar to the Campagna T-Rex, Virginia-based Tanom has just unveiled the Invader Model R at the SEMA show in Las Vegas.
Powered by a 1340cc Suzuki Hayabusa engine, the Invader Model R shares the same chassis, body and motor as the Invader TC-3 coupe and receives a number of performance enhancements. Some of the upgrades include a fully adjustable Elka Stage IV front suspension, high performance brakes by Wilwood, and a performance exhaust system. The interior will feature Type R race seats and four-point seatbelt harnesses while the exterior will highlighted by a rear deck spoiler, black accent striping and special badging.
The Model R’s cockpit features side-by-side seating that will comfortably accommodate two six-footers. The driver will find a set of controls similar to those found in any sports car – a steering wheel, gas, brake and clutch pedals and a six-speed sequential shifter and reverse gear. A full compliment of gauges round out the cockpit along with many standard amenities.
All three Invader models feature a frame constructed from one-and-a-half-inch tubular steel chassis, and Tanom says the Invader will go from 0-60 mph in under four seconds.
