Trikes have certain advantages over motorcycles such as better stability, according to Motorcycle Views. Not having to put your feet down at stops means less fatigue in heavy traffic. In addition, passengers are safer on trikes than motorcycles. Honda features a variety of trikes and trike conversion kits.
Honda trikes and conversion kits include models such as several versions of the Roadsmith, the Valkyrie, the Cobra–a conversion for the GL1800 Goldwing–and the Sport–a conversion for the GL1500 Goldwing.
Bad Boys Custom Cycles notes that some of the features of Honda trikes and conversion kits include independent rear suspension, a heavy duty driveshaft, stabilizer bar, longer wheelbase, disc brakes, a factory-styled body, alloy wheels, as much as 3.6 cubic feet of trunk space and a trailer hitch.
Additional options are available such as a 5- or 9-gallon auxiliary fuel tank, chrome wheels, extended trunk, wing guards, mud flaps and fender spoiler lights.
Warranties vary among models. For example, Bad Boys Custom Cycles notes a three-year/50,000-mile limited warranty on the Sport and the Valkyrie, while the Trikeshop indicates the warranties on the Roadsmith trikes are three years/1,000,000 miles.
