I haven’t yet seen the trike in order to know how the chain is managed when the trike is separated but, in their usual way, I expect HPV will have a clever solution.
There will be a European version and a less expensive USA version.
The European version /Gekko/ will be $2,590.
The USA version /Gekko/ will be $2,190, with a faster delivery time for New York riders.
If this is planned out like the Gekko fx, this means the European version will have a higher-end spec and a choice of the full range of options and accessories. The following are the differences between the European Gekko fx and the USA Gekko fx. If the /Gekko/ follows this pattern, I would anticipate similar differences. I would also anticipate that the difference in cost will be partially attributable to reduced customs duty and shipping.
In the USA version Gekko fx:
– no snake seal
– no chain guard
– slightly different bolts
– Isoflow cranks
– different rear hub (cheaper)
Same with the USA /Gekko/? We shall see.
