2012 TerraTrike Sportster Recumbent Review

Want to go fast? Really fast? Then the New Sportster is your machine. This is the culmination of our 15 years experience with trike design.

If you are a trike enthusiast, you owe it to yourself to take a test ride on one of these. It accelerates faster, climbs better, and maintains high speeds easier than any trike we’ve ever ridden. And trust us, we’ve ridden them all.

Sportster is the supercar of trikes, and a complete thrill to ride.

With its “no compromise approach” to build quality, you can be confident you’re riding the best. The Sportster has a newly designed strong and light weight aluminum frame that can be taken apart for easy traveling. It comes stock with a 26″ rear wheel for higher gearing, and is available in four component levels to suit any budget. If your goal is simply to move as fast as possible under your own power, then look no further than the new Sportster!
