This three-wheeled concept vehicle creates a flying sensation as you tilt 52 degrees

RIDGE MANOR, FLORIDA — A Florida inventor has designed a three-wheeled vehicle that can tilt 52 degrees.
The vehicle is called Narrow Tilting Vehicle with Non-Tilting Wheels. It is a reverse trike style vehicle with two wheels at the front. According to New Atlas, the vehicle can be manufactured into two, three or four wheel configurations.
The vehicle uses flat car tires rather than curved motorcycle tires, as they do not tilt relative to the road. The cabin is managed by hydraulic actuators that create a cradle mechanism, which allows the cabin to tilt when the road surface angle is changing or a cornering G-force is being applied.
The designer, Frank Knisley, said the cabin can tilt up to 52 degrees, creating a flying sensation without using one’s own body as a counterbalance. Knisley is currently looking to team up with other people to produce a prototype of the vehicle.
