The MotoTec Drifter is a 48 volt, 500-watt Electric Trike for people who like to slide while they ride. A 500 watt motor in the hub of the front wheel moves you to speeds of up to 22mph. The high capacity 48-volt battery system extends your ride to up to 25 miles.

The front powered wheel gives you greater control when drifting. You can hold much more precise drifts with front wheel drive than rear wheel drive.

          5 of 5 stars Like in the movies

My kids love Fast and Furious, especially Tokyo Drift. After watching the videos I knew they’d love this thing. We live on a really quiet dead end street perfect for drifting. The kids are out there all the time with this Drifter. They’re saving for another one so they can race.

          5 of 5 stars The most fun I’ve had in years!

I love this trike. All the neighbors are asking about it, it looks awesome, fun to ride, and very sturdy. Urbanscooter was great to purchase from the experience overall was great! I’ve shared the link to all my friends who want to get one now.

          5 of 5 stars Nice quality great service

This trike is heavy duty, great build quality. During the purchase I had to call to verify credit card information because I was shipping it to an address different from my billing address. I really appreciated how thorough they were making sure it wasn’t a fraudulent transaction. To top it off the Kids love it!
