Visiting from your future, the truly amazing Carver One

You can’t have more fun on the road than in a CARVER


Isle of Man TT 2009, “Mad Sunday” is when the mountain race circuit is one way and all the lunatics go for a thrash.  On my 2pm run I only got overtaken by 3 motorbikes and on my 3 pm run only 2 got past. What FUN.


Turbo charged, intercooled, 16 valve engine = FUN

45 degrees of lean round the bends = 1 g lateral acceleration = FUN

Wide rear tyres that stay flat on the ground, all wheel steering = bike blitzing FUN

“I have to say absolute hand on heart I’ve never had so much fun in a car really and truthfully”

“And I don’t think I’d ever get tired of it!”.

This is from a man who claims to hate motorbikes


It's hard to put in words, really... Formula car 1 driver Jenson Button's smile when he put the

Carver One to the test pretty much says it all, and if not, his final verdict does:-

"... absolute madness… fantastic!"

See Jensen Button’s ear to ear grin in the You Tube video by clicking here.


Cabin motorcycles for 365 days a year motorbiking, and even more

fun than motorbiking (I really never thought I would say that)


The Carver provides a maximum tilting angle of 45°

and a maximum tilting speed of 82° per second.

This tilting speed figure is an important characteristic,

as it describes the promptness of cornering, especially in a

chicane or lane change situation. As a reference:

on a conventional motorcycle, tilting speeds of this magnitude

can only be achieved safely by highly experienced racing

motorcycle riders. Anyone else would “high side” their bike

“This is the most fun you can have”,

As an owner I can’t disagree with that
