Command the Road and Attention
The Gran Tourismo is alluringly sophisticated with exhilarating performance resulting in the ultimate touring machine. With a nod to the original Tour, the GT is the culmination of over 20 years of continued innovation and customer feedback, resulting in the most comfortable and best handling TerraTrike to date.
The sporty yet elegant design is harmoniously coordinated conveying both aesthetics and dynamics. Engineered from the ground up to be efficient, beautiful and comfortable, it handles like a sports car but rides like a luxury sedan.
The most noticeable change is the Y-frame design which gives added strength while allowing for additional heel clearance and ease in getting in and out. The equally noticeable triangulated rear end adds pedaling efficiency, better aerodynamics, reduced pedal steer and lower center of gravity so that you “stick” to the road even at higher speeds. The chro-moly steel frame is durable, more comfortable and provides a “passive suspension” with a smoother ride. New seat mounting adds rigidity to the trike increasing efficiency with every pedal stroke.
But it doesn't stop there. We’ve included direct steering along with TerraTrike’s own “steering stack” that provides a responsive yet predictable steering experience. The GT also comes standard with a 24” rear wheel for higher top-end speeds, all while rolling more smoothly over bumps and retaining momentum. To top it off, the aluminum seat frame, handlebars and tie rod reduce weight without sacrificing strength.
The Gran Tourismo features an extended seat frame with an upgraded seat mesh. This is by far the most comfortable seat we’ve ever produced and will result in longer, more comfortable rides; featuring a breathable mesh and extra padding in “all the right places.” The extra seat frame length is contoured to give additional support and comfort. There is even a zippered pocket on the rear just large enough for a wallet, keys or cell phone. The front wheels use a rapid axle for easy removal for transportation; the seat, a single seat bolt for quick and easy seat removal; and a single hex key for both.
Pair all of that with the stunningly beautiful paint colors and you’ll be turning heads all day. The “wet” paint colors add more depth of color and are durable. Sparkle Gold and Sky Blue are the signature colors with limited edition colors being offered periodically.
Best of all, the Gran Tourismo accepts all TerraTrike branded accessories, including the Storage Solutions lineup of bags and panniers, making this the perfect trike for that cross-country adventure, your daily commute or the leisurely ride to your favorite local destination.
