Innovative Triking from a German company blows out the competition

I have seen the future of Trikes in America and it is called REWACO. Incredible trikes and a pro-range of models with the bonus benefits of customization, comfort, ready-to-tour, financing and eye-candy. 
 
This German company is not big on media or magazines, but I want to change that, expose them and showcase their genius to one and all. Writing this Feature Article on Rewaco Trikes on Bikernet almost feels like deflowering a virgin, because I don’t know why this is not a huge brand name in the custom industry of USA. They have so far, only nine dedicated Authorized Dealers in USA. If I can scream out, across rooftops to invite you to drool on these fabulous Trikes then maybe there will be a Dealer next to your garage soon. Wow, is the only word to describe these amazing machines built to ride off the shop floor onto any highway.

 

 
 

Rewaco Trikes USA broadly classifies its five super trike models into three categories:

1.     Sports Tourer

2.     Grand Tourer and

3.     Luxury Tourer

 

Their Sports Tourer models are simply named, “RF1 ST-2” and “RF1 ST-3." Sounds boring? Well, those Germans did what they do best, engineering. They designed a great trike and forgot our American savvy for hip and groovy names and tag lines. Remember my feature on Trikes of Elvis Presley? Well if the King was alive, he would be kicking his heels on a Rewaco Trike for sure. It's majestic and fit for a King. Its saddle is a throne made for the highway boss to rev and roll into adventure and mystique.

 

 

The Grand Tourer has a single model named “RF1 GT." The two Luxury Tourers are “RF1 LT-2” and “RF1 LT-3” or as I will be renaming them “Thrillwheels” and “Kingsize." The description would simply read “Luxor Avant Grande." Rewaco is a trademark of the company Rewaco Spezialfahrzeuge GmbH, Germany.

 

Specialist in Automatic Trikes:

 

No shift, just drive. Rewaco Trikes have a 1.5 liter 4-cylinder in-line engine. They call it VCT and this is a central key element to their royal three wheeled wagons. Punch Powertrain powers an advanced 7-gear automatic gearbox giving you the need to speed. The ride is ideal for those who are accustomed to cruisers and tourers in the two-wheel industry. These Trikes give a fantastic travel experience with comfort and safety on long rides. Rewaco are available in both performance version 110 hp (81 kW) and a monster 140 hp (103 kW) with a turbocharger.

 

 
 

The optional Power-Shifter on the handlebar – operated on demand in ″SP-Sport-Mode″ – can turn this sweet regal lamb into a speedy mile-hungry wolf.

 

Designed for Trikeheads:

 

The functional design and the perfection of on-road performance is the USP of the Rewaco Trike. They are not just pretty to look at, they were made for you to hit the road and maybe live as a nomad.

 

Just put on the EasyDrive Automatic and roll down to tour America today. Don’t even bother worrying about luggage space. Rewaco has a large Tourback Trunk equipped as standard design on all Rewaco Trike models. There is more space for your bags and more space for your ass. Bring your wife and your mother-in-law along and they will not complain. The timeless trike design and the sophistication in its frame and structure is to be witnessed for sure. This design follows many of the custom, even Roth trikes of old. Plus, the rider is still in the open like a motorcycle, experiencing the elements.

 

 
 

Rewaco offers Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) and modern music system with loudspeakers to announce your arrival.

 

The Sports Tourer ST-2 is a two seater trike with the large luggage space. ST-3 is a miracle with three seats, touring trunk, bestselling RF1 chassis and high speeds. Both of them have engine options of 1.5 ltr. 4 cyl. in-line engine (VCT) 81 kW (110 hp) or a 1.5 ltr. 4 cyl. in-line engine (VCT) with turbo 103 kW (140 hp ). ST-2 price starts at USD 26,970 and ST-3 starts at USD 27,440. Can you believe it? Such unbeatable pricing on magnificent road-tested perfectly designed ready to ride trikes?

 

 
 

Standard Equipment on all the 5 Trikes having RF1 chassis are tempting. Bodywork of fiberglass reinforced plastic (GRP), w/ integrated ″Tourback″ trunk for all RF1 models. Steering fork ″Sportline″ with standpipes Ø 70 mm and Bilstein gas-filled shock absorber. Bodywork in glass fibre reinforced plastic (GRP) in: Ruby Red, Melon Yellow, Marine Blue, (Pure White only ST). Sport seats in black (with RF1 Turbo brand lettering on the ATM turbo). Wheel set ″Star″ with front tire 180/55 ZR 17 on alloy rim (5 J x 17) and rear tyres 255/45 ZR 17 on aluminum rim (8,5 J x 17) in silver. Chassis with Bilstein gas pressure adjustable shock absorbers.

 

Brake pedals are in black. The Sport exhaust system is stainless steel. Two-circuit integral braking system, with brake booster. Main and auxiliary headlamp. Polished Headlamp brackets in stainless steel. Polished Handlebar ″Tour″ in stainless steel. Hazard warning lights. Rotational-speed sensor. Trip odometer. Voltmeter. Water temperature gauge. Rear-view mirror w/ black plastic housing. Clock. Vehicle tool kit. First-aid kit and warning triangle. You will never drive a car again.

 

 
 

The Grand Tourer is a two-seater. With a wide range of equipment, you can completely configure your Trike, make it personalized to individual color choices and parts. Aesthetically, its truly earned its name “Grand Tourer." The equipment package ″Black Line″ contains all mounted parts in black matt. Available for all the five RF1 models from Rewaco. Prices start at USD 27,950.

 

The Luxury Tourer RF1 LT-2 is especially popular among ambitious tour riders due to its soft 7-gear automatic gearbox and sporty comfortable RF1 driving performance. Typical for the 2-seater model are the two useful helmet boxes to the right and left of the passenger seat. And the TourBack Trunk stores everything you would carry on your cross-country adventure. Pricing starts at USD 28,690.

 

The LT-3 is an unbelievable Luxury Family Tourer with 3 seats. Experience road adventures as a Threesome on Three Wheels. The RF1 LT-3 combines the unmatched RF1 driving performance with its exclusive design and functional luggage option for three people. Pricing starts at 29,150. Standard equipment is front forks with centre Bilstein gas shock absorber. Rear Axle has single wheel suspension with Bilstein gas shockabsorbers. Disc brakes guarantee your stops.

I love the new Rewaco line. I bought the first Rewaco trike sold in the United States and I still have it. It is now 17 years old and I think I want to upgrade.

Editor Response Hi Louis,

They have dealerships in 7 States with two dealers each in Florida and in Texas.

You can find a list of dealers at this website:
http://rewaco-usa.com/

Average PRICE seems to be $ 35,000 but it all depends on the extensive custom choices you add or remove from your Rewaco Trike.

Good write up on Rewaco. One item you didn't mention was who is authorized to do maintenance and all parts have to be ordered from Germany. Once those issues have been resolved I will be a Rewaco owner.
