Hannigan trikes will give you the ride of your life. The features that put Hannigan ahead of the rest of the pack are many, but of primary importance is the independent suspension with sway bar. Our independent suspension has almost no lateral forces on the motorcycle seat creating a much healthier, more comfortable ride, even for your passenger. Our 60-inch wide track and CRX sports car stabilizer has made the Hannigan Trike one of the safest and most stable trikes available. It will out-corner other trikes, allowing you to run with your two wheel companions on twisty roads. Hannigan Trikes have the best combination of sporty handling and a plush ride.
Progressive Suspension I.A.S. Gas Shocks in all Hannigan Trikes are very user friendly. Inertia sensitive damping enables the wheel to react quickly to rough surfaces while still maintaining full damping control for taut precise handling.
The in-line Drive shaft of the original motorcycle is used in its original position to ensure smooth running and unbeatable reliability.
All Hannigan Trikes use a 7.5 inch Ford Thunderbird differential with 2.73 gears matched to right-size tires to maintain the original bike ratio, except for the Hannigan Harley-Davidson FLH series Trike conversion, which uses the original H-D belt drive and sprocket. Mufflers of the original motorcycles are used on the Hannigan Trike.
All Hannigan Trikes come with standard disc brakes. On Hannigan's BMW and Honda Trike conversions, the original ABS Systems have been retained.
Storage trunks on Hannigan Trikes are fully carpets spacious 7 cu. ft. spaces on Goldwing 1800 & BMW, easily holding two full-face helmets and more. There are 5 cu ft space on the Harley Davidson, and 6 cu ft space on the Yamaha. An auxiliary fuel tank is available for the Gold Wing (3 gallons) and BMW (4 12/ gallons) Trike conversions with a separate filler neck for convenience. The fuel is transferred from the TIG-welded heavy gauge aluminum tank to the main tank by the rider-activated fuel pump. The tank is located inside the trike frame to extend fuel range with maximum safety.
Large taillights are standard on the Hannigan Trikes, often incorporating the lights of the original motorcycle.
Foot Fairing for the BMW, Goldwing , Harley Davidson, Yamaha are molded in one piece providing load barring and a cleaner appearance. A Hannigan Whale Tail Spoiler with LED brake lights on the Hannigan Honda Gold Wing GL1800 Trike conversion completes the look with style. To top it all off, we use custom mag wheels with top-of-the-line Michelin tires on the Hannigan Trikes.
