"Motor Trike took great care to stylistically match this new conversion to the original motorcycle itself," the company announced. "The all-new rear custom body effortlessly becomes one with the Stratoliner. It begins with the rear fenders flawlessly mimicking the front fender, and [ends] with the smooth body lines from the front fairing as they are carried through to the rear of the trike creating one seamless machine. This conversion retains the factory pulley and belt with no specialty or proprietary additions making it easier to install and maintain.

"The 4 cu. ft. trunk sits on Motor Trike’s outstanding Independent Rear Suspension that is simply unparalleled when ridden side by side with any other trike on the market," the company added.

  • Independent rear suspension (IRS) with more than 4 inches of suspension travel;
  • An on-board air compressor with Fingertip LED Digital Readout and Voltmeter;
  • 15-inch aluminum torque thrust wheels;
  • Disc brakes
  • 12V power source in the trunk
  • Trunk door designed with hidden external hinges that do not occupy interior space
  • Trunk light mounted on door to shine on cargo
  • Three year, 60,000-mile warranty.
