The Batmobile is coming to Australia, with the latest in the iconic superhero’s long-awaited tricycle series.
The Batmobile, the Batmobile tricycle and the Battoy tricycle are all set to be made into tricycling equipment in Australia.
Tram, the company behind the tricycle designs, have already released two tricyclists to show off their designs in Australia and are also working on a tricycle for the United States.
“The tricycle design is a huge milestone for Batman, for us as a company, for our product design and for our Australian customers,” Tram president and chief executive Steve Tully told Engadgnet.
“This is the first tricycle we’ve designed that will be a product, not just a product concept, that will have a real-world application.”
Batman tricycles have been on the market in Australia since 2010, and now that the new tricycle concept has been approved, Tully said it will be ready to ship to customers in the US and Europe.
“Our goal is to ship this by the end of 2020,” he said.
Batmobile tricycle designs are designed with “the same principles and the same concepts that have been in the Batcave for 30 years”, Mr Tully explained.
“There’s no new technology or different technology in the tricylic design, just the same basic principles and concepts that were in the classic Batcaves.”
And that’s what we’re building into these tricycluses.”
The tricycyclists are a departure from the current Batmobile concept, which is a simple two-seat car that can be used for both short- and long-distance trips.
Mr Tully’s tricycyclists will be based on the same design, with some minor differences.
One of the most obvious differences will be the design of the brake system, with Batman’s tricys now being equipped with a hydraulic system.”
We’re actually looking at a lot of different design concepts to come up with a good solution for the brake, the air pressure and the traction,” Mr Tullys said.”
But we’ve got to make sure that the brake is comfortable and is easy to use, because we want to make it as comfortable as possible.
“Tram said the tricycle design would be available for both genders, and will be available to purchase in 2019.
