Lehman Trikes has added another manufacturer to its list of partners, this time Victory Motorcycles has signed on with Lehman to create the “Pit Boss” trike based on the Victory Kingpin. It was rolled out Saturday on Lehman Trikes Day at the Mineral Palace Hotel and Casino in Deadwood, South Dakota.
The Pit Boss will be sold exclusively through selected Lehman dealers beginning in the summer of 2007.
The Pit Boss is the result of a recently penned agreement between Lehman Trikes and Victory Motorcycles(R) which provides concurrent development, supply, marketing, and licensing relationships. The Pit Boss is built and designed by Lehman with initial structural testing completed by Victory(R).
Power comes from Victory’s® 100 cubic inch Freedom™ Power train and 6-speed True Overdrive transmission.
Lehman previously became the official trike supplier for Harley Davidson.
Trikes like these, using Honda Gold Wings or Harley Davidsons as a base vehicle, plus many others, have been popular with a segment of the market for a long time. With the introduction of the Can-Am Spyder, I wonder what portion of that market will think about switching to a reverse trike setup. The newer configuration provides everything the conventional trike offers plus greater performance and stability.
If any trike riders out there would like to comment, we would like to hear from you.
