If you remember the GG Quad mentioned here before then you’ll immediately see the family resemblance in the Taurus. The GG (Grueter & Gut) Quad runs a BMW boxer engine, later evolving into the GG Quadster using the inline 4 from the BMW K1200S. I didn’t notice their next logical step when they re-engineered the Quadster into a reverse trike, called the Taurus. I came across the Taurus in the BMW Customs book I just reviewed and it could be an interesting alternative to a Can Am Spyder if they decide to bring it to the US. GG Quad North America has been trying to make the quad street legal but the Taurus would be a slam dunk for certification with the Can Am already on the road.
Since the 175 hp, 6 speed Taurus would be the pricier trike, most casual riders looking for a reverse trike would most likely opt for the Can Am, but, for those who can’t be seen on what anyone else is riding, who have to be a little bit faster and are willing and able to pay for the experience, the Taurus would be pretty sweet. There’s no indication this is coming stateside but you never know.
