We’ve had a few complaints about our focus on trikes recently so we thought you might like to see something with only two wheels, the Suprine Exodus, of course, this is still a bit out of the norm, it’s a recumbent. The rider sits low in the vehicle with his feet in a forward orientation and the engine behind. There is room for him to place his feet on the ground when the bike is stationary or just starting out or stopping. The rider sits in an aluminum racing bucket seat.
Power comes from a 1200cc BMW flat four with five speeds and reverse. The rider is surrounded by a roll cage and a skid plate. The gas tank holds 8 gallons and weight comes in at 680 pounds.
The Exodus will be offered in 2 models, the Exodus 2014 and the Exodus 2014 G with a turbo engine and upgraded brakes and related components. They’re planning fully enclosed bodies as a future option as well as an off road version. They even have their eye on a racing version which would compete against other recumbents in a class of its own.
Pricing is steep, beginning at $55,000 and going up quickly from there so it’s competing against some pretty nice and very capable cars but, you know, it looks like it would be fun to take out for a spin. Stay tuned.
