We certainly don’t want to put them behind the wheel. Right?! Mercedes-Benz begs to differ.
There’s nothing worse than getting set for a fun-filled day of Trike Drifting with your bros only to realise, “Wait a second, I’m an adult. There’s not trike on Earth that will fit my man-sized frame.” You’re right! Well, only sorta right. There is a trike out there for you fatty!
