I read an article a while ago that spoke to this and a couple other companies that are developing 3-wheel "bike" crossovers to attract the aging baby boomers.

Is BRP a division or rename of Bombadier? They were mentioned as trying to get in early in this market.

Just keep in mind the target market for these. Retired or semi-retired baby boomers with plenty of disposable income. Some would be expected to sell their $20,000+ touring motorcyles to buy these.

The success of these will depend upon whether they are accepted in the market and whether the volume they need to make a profit is there.

BRP is bombardier they also brought back the name canam from the early 70'*, i worked at a motorcycle and atv dealership also :-p i saw that thing a few months ago at work iiii dont like it, i think "aging baby boomers" would rather be on 2 wheels to save themselves the embarrasment from the not so aging babyboomers hehe
