2008 Brudeli 654L Leanster is the production version of the
Brudeli 625L prototype
revealed in 2005. The 654L Leanster is a three-wheel tilting
trike which uses the engine and transmission of a KTM 690
The Brudeli 654L Leanster is best described as a cross between
a motorcycle and an ATV-quad bike. It has the ability to lean
into corners like a conventional motorbike, but also the stability
of a quad bike. During cornering the footboards remain parallel
to the ground, while the rest of the vehicle, including the
two front wheels lean at an angle of up to 45 degrees. The
tilting mechanism is entirely mechanical leaving the rider
in complete control.
Having two front wheels also means the 654L Leanster can brake
in a shorter distance than a comparable two-wheel motorcycle
as there is an extra brake disk and another tire-to-ground
The design of the Bradley 654L Leanster was created by Atle
Stubberud from Soon Design. Atle said of the vehicle, "This
really is a dream project for a transportation designer. Nearly
like a student project where you could start with a completely
open mind. I have been involved since the idea was first formulated
“Making 100 metre controlled powerslides at the local dirt
track oval (speedway) is a quite unbeatable feeling. Especially
when this is a street-legal vehicle that you actually came
cruising with to the track.” says Geir Brudeli, the inventor
of the Leanster and manager of Brudeli Tech. “Then just a
few minutes later you could be at a go-kart track without
any change of setup, leaning 45 degrees into corners with
a control superior to that of a normal motorcycle. The Leanster
suspension is 100% mechanical and leaves the rider in control.
It is built with the goal of boosting the motorcycle experience.”
When the Brudeli 654L Leanster goes on sale it will be fully
street legal in Europe.
