Sabertooth Motorcycles To Launch Wicked WILDCAT® Trikes In 2015

sabr1sabr2The wickedest WildCat® trikes, the e and m, will be debuting in the summer of 2015, complete with WildCat’s® newly patented SureTrac® steering and DynaGrip® suspension systems.

“We can’t wait for these trikes to debut,” says Sabertooth Motorcycles Founder Ben Daniels, “because we believe they will revolutionize the trike market.” “Up until now, all conventional trikes have been based on a motorcycle conversion. WildCat® trikes are the first truly purpose-built conventional trikes on the market. Engine choices, weight distribution, geometry, and center of gravity have all been optimized for a 3-wheel vehicle. Additionally, WildCat® trikes have suspension, stability, and steering enhancements that improve both safety and performance for a truly exceptional riding experience.”

Both trike lines will feature WildCat’s® newly patented SureTrac®, and DynaGrip® technologies. SureTrac®, a Rear-Wheel-Steering system (patent number 8,607,913) provides added stability and ease of turning. Sabertooth’s new proprietary DynaGrip® Active Suspension System (patent number 8,645,024) provides a better ride and better handling than trikes with either conventional independent rear suspension or a suspension with a solid rear axle.

WildCat’s® e models feature:
• 850 cc Weber parallel twin engine
• Four stroke overhead cam
• WildCat® cradle frame
• Six gallon fuel tank

WildCat’s® m models feature:
• Ford Racing’s 302 cu. in. V8 engine
• 350 hp @ 5200 RPM
• Ford Racing GT-40 cylinder heads
• WildCat® cradle frame with removable spine
• Ten gallon fuel tank

Sabertooth® Motorcycles began in late 2005. The company saw a need for a new level of motorcycle for the experienced rider seeking a higher level of physical exhilaration and emotional satisfaction and introduced the V8 powered Sabertooth WildCat®.

    Wildcat snowmobiles, side by sides, Buicks, cartridges, etc. How about some imagination.

    The thing about Trikes [ and sidecars ] is … they keep people riding as well as bringing in a host of newbies that either no longer can or are unwilling to ride on two wheels .

    Which in my never so humble opinion … is a Good Thing that can only benefit us all .

    Because the fact is we need to keep those having lost the ability to ride on two wheels on the road . And the industry as a whole desperately needs to bring in a lot of new riders soon .

    Which is to say .. Two thumbs up to Sabertooth regardless of what anyone else may think .. and

    Rock On – Ride On – Remain Calm – and Carry On

    It’s a reverse Can-Am!

    I’m with the COKid, ride whatever you can afford, physically and monetarily.

    Trike: All the disadvantages of a motorcycle with none of the advantages.

  5. 5 Rodent Sep 25th, 2014 at 12:36 pm

    I totally agree w Phil, from years of experience with 3wheeled vehicles.

    Certainly cool stuff… BUT……
    If ridden with some exuberance three-wheelers of any variety are way more of a hand-full than a regular scooter.

    Not the stuff for “newbies”……… IMHO

    Like the COKid said. Anything that can keep some folks in the wind longer can’t be all bad.

  8. 8 Doug Sep 25th, 2014 at 7:16 pm

    Keep people in the wind on a trike?
    Get people started on a trike?

    Phil is right,

    I know a guy who has had his MC licence taken off him for health reasons but has his car licence.
    Not uncommon over here so he has bought a Canam.
    There were two on a ride last week and they take up quite allot of room during passing and getting back in, but acceptable.
    We have fairly liberal build it yourself motor vehicle laws and there are allot of home built V8 trikes usually DRIVEN by boguns. Not all, just some ! They get out of shape and do stupid things on a vehicle that weighs the same as a small car.
    I have seen some very close calls and I have been cut off by one. All right on large roads not so good on our roads.
    Very Dangerous to other MotoCyclists in the wrong hands on a group ride.

    Ego…check it. Its the only reason people knock trikes. I’ve said it before, I own both 3 and 2 wheels and love riding both. Of course they are different. No argument about that. If you make the choice to ride a trike without a physical challenge, I believe you just widen your experience riding. Trikes are a blast. These trikes here are just the birthing of more to come and I’m happy to see the opportunity of the road given out to more people. One thing tho..I do believe that a rider education is needed. In Cali it is not required to have a license to ride. Many peeps think it is easier than 2 wheels. It is not. Takes a certain skill to maneuver.

  11. 11 Doug Sep 26th, 2014 at 10:02 am

    Kathy – ego is not a reason people knock trikes. Looking at one tells the story that is not something to have fun on in the corners., which is the biggest reason most people ride

  12. 12 Rodent Sep 26th, 2014 at 12:22 pm

    A trike has all the disadvantages of a motorcycle without any of the advantages. I’ve owned a Servi-car and a BMW w Steib and drove sidecar rig 20-30K. Servi-car I had in San Francisco back in the Summer of Love. It was fun for about a month and then I got rid of it and got back on my Dunstall Norton.

  13. 13 Kathy Sep 26th, 2014 at 1:51 pm

    Doug. I don’t speak for others. If that reasoning was true I would only own one style of motorcycle. All bikes are different. And yes. Yes. Yes, ego is involved, I see it every single time I ride the trike as opposed to riding my Softail or Nightster. Every time. Sad to say that too. But everyone has an opinion and that’s ok.

  14. 14 nicker Sep 26th, 2014 at 7:15 pm

    A propose built trike with really low CG & well engineers steering breaks is a way different deal than a Servi-car.

    Servi-cars were designed to “Drive” around town handing out parking tickets or delivering stuff, not brisk back-road *Riding.” Next time ya see the average trike rider push one too hard into a corner, take a good look at his face….. 🙂

    Side-hacks on the other hand….
    Historically, sidecar racing mortality was proportionally higher than racing motorcycles. Probably because hacks are more difficult handle at speed.


  15. 15 Doug Sep 27th, 2014 at 1:21 am

    Kathy – you don’t speak for others, but you state ego is involved when people knock trikes ? What’s an example of ego being shown? Criticizing a design that has obvious flaws is not ego.

  16. 16 Kathy Sep 27th, 2014 at 9:07 am

    Doug, that is just a generalization from my experiences. Not accusing voices here. Ego was thrown in because some people will knock a design i.e., trike, and not even know what it is like to ride one. Im not attacking anyone here. Obvious “flaws”? Missed that other than it is not the same as 2 wheeler. That’s why it’s called a trike. A lot of riders don’t even consider trikes as motorcycles. I’m not sure I do either and I own an SG Trike. I agree with most conversations above, in that it does not ride the same. The mechanical features however are. You steer, not lean, and Nicker Is right… get into a cornering too fast, and it can be over. It’s a whole different gig. Harder to ride than 2 wheels. All upper body. A workout. I owned a hack also Ural…sold it. They are fun, but the damn thing put a knot in my neck. Again, they are not a trike either. Completely different ride than a trike and not in the same category.

    I started riding motorcycles legally in 1968 and trikes in 1981. Don’t really give a rat’s ass whether anyone thinks it’s a “real” motorcycle or not. It’s what I choose to ride.

  18. 18 B. D. Howard Sep 27th, 2014 at 11:10 am

    I rode a Can Am Spyder and hated it. Not fond of sidecars, servi-cars, or other trike conversions. Just not fun in corners, especially at speed – no thank you!

    But these are unique in that they are purpose built with lower centers of gravity. Think Big Wheel with a longer wheelbase.

    The image of the Wildcat is cool but the name has been used and abused. But it does harken back to the days when cars were named for animals instead of the alphabet soup and numbers nonsense that they use today.

    I suspect that these things will handle okay, feel more stable, and they look pretty cool. Not that I really want one, but the V-8 one looks like it might be a fun, if expensive, toy! Certainly it should ride and handle much better than a Boss Hoss trike…

    sidecars are not fun in corners,especially at speed,
    search: pictures road racing sidecars
    Isle of man TT lap record 600cc sidecar 116.667 mph
    how much more fun do you want?

  20. 20 jimbo Sep 29th, 2014 at 12:40 pm

    What about the FLEXI sidehack from years ago (1930’s)? the sidecar leans in the corners. I saw a video on an old ER video..looked like hack bounced a lot when empty but with newer technology who knows what can be done ….why not have a leanable side hack of ALL worlds. There must be an engineer than can make this work. I think they’re doing it with trikes (one manufacturer) why have a heavy leanable trike with hard steering with the above mention hard slow spped turning? Anyone?????
