Okay kids, I promised you a test drive report on the Ice Bear chopper trike. Well, it's an interesting machine to ride where it feels exceptionally stable because of the trike design. The first day out I had a little getting used to the springer front end and clutch, but with a little time the feel comes. Ice Bear is an interesting motorcycle company. Most of their bikes of all types are three wheelers. That's their own special niche in the market.
One cool feature on some of their three wheel bikes is a reverse gear. That's especially useful on any larger bike. And while the v-twin engine is only a 250cc, it still has very adequate power without getting into some $26,000 to $50,000 machine. This Ice Bear model retails for $7995.00, but can be found on a few websites for around half that amount which is a real deal for such a decent quality machine.
For such a low entry price, Ice Bear, a Chinese brand that uses some Japanese and Taiwanese parts in their bikes makes a cool product that borrows more than few cues from custom Harley trikes costing a lot more. Ice Bear makes some pretty good toys for grown boys. I'd recommend them as a great toy maker.
