From what the website listed, it sounds like a Chinese import in either 250 or 500cc. The 500cc version has a top speed of about 70 mph.

I don't see a roll bar on it and the inside underneath in the front of the dash is opened up so the riders are going to get water and mud splashed on if driving in the rain from the front tires. Looks like it was made in a rush to compete with both the Slingshot and T-Rex.

Not to sell them short, there's a bigger engine version with 48 HP!!!

BTW, this is all cheap Chinese stuff. I have a buddy whose buddy bought a few Chinese scooters. Disposable is the right word for them. Wow! It makes the Yugo look reliable (and that's saying something!).

What's scary is what the world will look like in 10 years when this sort of stuff gets just good enough that the masses will buy them.

Comparing this to a slingshot is like comparing a moped to a Harley. In fact, that may be their designated audience. Lots of folks consider mopeds but feel exposed, and this would be of interest (just like many current SS owners used to own bikes). Might also compete with the golf cart crowd; similar price but more attractive to drive around the neighborhood.
