The project has been designed by four students - Sayyed Abdul, Prakyath, Apoorv Prem, and Satyam. Sayyed and Prakyath are from Mangalore while Apoorv and Satyam hail from Delhi. It was total dedication, hard work, and team effort by these four that made this project successful.
Speaking to the media, Prakyath said, "There are three key features in this trike that can make it successful. First, it comes with a 1000 cc engine; secondly, it has an automatic transmission; and third, it is a three-wheeler. These three key features are likely to attract a huge number of people to these trikes."
Sharing his thoughts, Sayyed said that the trike has auto transmission and is very comfortable and ideal for the differently-abled. "It runs at a maximum speed of 150 km/hr and has a 50 BHP engine fitted with a '98 Model Suzuki Zen engine, Royal Enfield Thunderbird projector headlamps, KTM front forks and Hayabusa tyres at the rear with 16-inch Skoda mag wheels make it look grand. The mileage at present is a minimum of 20 per litre. The estimated cost of the project is Rs 3 lac," he explained.
"Our project guide Ravishankar Baliga and HoD Rammohan Pai have named this project and model as 'Monster Trike'," said Sayyed and Prakyath.
