Beasts roam Canada

The Witness - Wheels - - BIKING -

Canada’s pop­u­la­tion is age­ing, but that is not to say the pen­sion­ers are tot­ter­ing around on Zim­mer frames. In­stead, Toronto-based Day­mak has launched the Boomer Beast, an AWD trike de­scribed as ‘the first true on-road/off-road mo­bil­ity scooter in the mar­ket­place’. Three mod­els are avail­able, with prices rang­ing from $2 999 for the Stan­dard ver­sion to $4 999 (about R72 760) for the Ul­ti­mate, which fea­tures a built-in 12-watt so­lar panel that helps trickle-charge the ve­hi­cle’s 2 580-Wh Pana­sonic lithium bat­tery.
