    Three wheelers aren’t seen much around the globe except for the Southern and Eastern Asian countries. This new vehicle designed by Alexander Vittouris is a recreational three wheeler with a difference. The body is fashioned from bamboo! Christened as the BamTrike, the vehicle is characterized as a Personal Mobility Vehicle. It shuns the use of fiberglass, and opts for a body made out of recycled bamboo fiber and Polyactide resin instead. The one behind the wheel of this vehicle can sit comfortably in a reclined position. The vehicle also has enough storage space to keep those little essentials you carry around. The overall height of the vehicle measures just above 900mm. The BamTrike was designed to fit into a standard bicycle lane and is not intended to be used in normal traffic. This unique three wheeler
    fabricated from bamboo will certainly give the rider a natural feel.
