DFW Stallion Trikes of Dallas

This three-wheel vehicle, with 1 wheel in the front and 2 wheels in the rear, offers drivers the thrill of an open air motorcycle ride with the allure of a sports car.    

The Stallion has a frame and suspension designed completely in-house by Motor Trike engineers, and is powered by a 2.3-liter Ford four-cylinder engine built on Cologne Germany.   The engine produces 143 horsepower and 154 ft-lbs. of torque, according to Motor Trike, which Thoroughbred says will give the Stallion the power-to-weight ratio of a Mustang GT. Unlike a standard trike conversion, the Stallion has a Ford 5-speed automatic transmission with reverse and a steering wheel instead of handlebars.

The "dash" also has air conditioning and heat for both the front and rear passengers, who ride the Stallion on tandem leather seats.  And if that is not enough, it also comes with a Sony AM - FM radio, cup holders, Ford component gauges, Ford automatic shifter with cruise control and, of course, one brake pedal and one gas pedal. 

The Stallion also has a 9.5-gallon fuel tank, which is much larger than any motorcycle.  Its fuel economy will rival that of some of the hybrid cars with 38-MPG Highway - 30-MPG City.  According to these numbers, the cruise range should be close to 300 miles with a 2-gallon reserve.

Thoroghbred Motorsports, a subsidiary of trike conversion producer Motor Trike has been working on a trike from the ground up called the Stallion that was just released.  The Stallion has a frame and suspension designed completely in-house by Motor Trike engineers, and is powered by a 2.3-liter Ford four-cylinder engine.   The engine produces 143 horsepower and 154 ft-lbs. of torque, according to Motor Trike, which Thoroughbred says will give the Stallion the power-to-weight ratio of a Mustang GT. Unlike a standard trike conversion, the Stallion has a Ford 5-speed automatic transmission with reverse and a steering wheel instead of handlebars.

In the automotive world, the world "stallion" usually either conjures up images of a mustang or a certain prancing horse from Italy. Thoroughbred Motorsports would like to change that perception with their new three-wheeled vehicle. The company was started by Motor Trike, a company which turns normal two-wheeled touring style motorcycles into trikes. It seems that they got tired of working solely on machines designed by other companies, so they set their sights on making their own. The vehicle that they came up with is known as the Stallion, and uses mechanical parts from Ford for the drivetrain. Similarly, the interior sports gages and a steering wheel are right out of the Ford part catalog. The 2.3 liter four cylinder engine produces 138 horsepower and allows for a power-to-weight ratio similar to that the aforementioned 'stang. Most other main components were developed in-house. Interested in how it drives... er, rides? The Stallion gets excellent fuel economy, 30 mpg in the city and 38 on the highway. These estimates seem rather believable as well.
