Tilting Electric Tricycle
What's the biggest problem with normal trikes? Getting around corners! New Electric Tilting Trike, using patented tilt technology! When you lean or any sudden change of direction is made, the front section of the bike tilts but the rear wheels remain on the ground flat and stable! At just 30Kg the trike is very lightweight for a trike using a compact Lithium battery pack located below the large rear basket.

Curious about how the rear chain drive functions when the front tilts and the rear stays up right.
I can see a chain tensioner but there has to be more to it than that.
Does anyone have any more pics?

Similar to the trike shown above, the Cavalo's front wheel can tilt. This allows the trike to lean from side to side as if it only had two wheels, dramatically increasing the handling characteristics and practically eliminating the risk of tipping over.
The main differences between the Cavalo and the ebike listed above are:
1. More powerful motor - 350W
2. Added front basket
