2011 Morgan Threewheeler announced, will receive Harley-Davidson engine

Article by Christian A., on November 10, 2010

The Morgan Motor Co. is going back to its roots. For a start, its iconic Threewheeler is making a comeback in 2011 – exactly 58 years since it was last sold. The 2011 Morgan Threewheeler, which weighs 500kg, is powered by an 1800cc V-Twin engine from Harley Davidson and equipped with a Mazda five-speed gearbox.

Its engine delivers 100bhp at the rear wheel and is believed to push the aluminum trike to sprint from zero to 60mph in 4.5 seconds and to hit a maximum speed of 115mph. It is offered in eight exterior colors, with each accented by black components in matte or gloss finish.

Customers can also opt between black or tan leather. The interior features aircraft-style toggle switches for the different accessories and a “bomb release” style start button.

At an added cost, buyers may ask for the bespoke versions of the Threewheeler following a run of standard cars off the production line.

Pricing information will be announced closer to launch. Morgan released a statement, revealing two “big issues” of future road transport: “the conservation of precious resources and the protection of our beautiful natural environment.”

Morgan said that these problems can be dealt with by “downsizing and a philosophy of simplicity.” Morgan pointed to the Threewheeler as the “proven answer” to its problems.
