I don't see how they could get it registered as a motorcycle when it has four wheels. Right now the Ariel Atom has for wheels and is as open and small as you can get with a four wheeled vehicle but it is still classified as a car even without a windscreen trellis frame with no body panels and being the size of a go-cart. 4 wheels=car. Sounds like this is a copy of the Atom not a motorcycle car hybrid like the GX-3 or the T-rex, the latter of which actually uses a Kawasaki engine.

I talked to VW at the LA auto show and things look promising for a 2007 release of the GX-3. We also talked about mods they may do before release including switching to shaft or belt drive instead of chain, adding a turbo or supercharger, different size tire options etc, ABS, traction control, etc. I insisted of they wanted to get people to buy them they keep them as simple as possible, as fast as possible, and as cheap as possible much like the Atom which can do 0-60 in under 2.5 seconds and can handle curves like nothing else on the road. Keep it under $20k, have a 0-60 time under 5 seconds, and have it stick like glue in curves and they will sell a few to enthusiasts without having to add lots of fancy extras.
