First, the most common question asked about buying a WSC trike is “How much do they cost?”
Simple answer, between $5000 and $120,000 US dollars. Next question, “Why such a variance?” Easiest to understand if you think about the similar questions such as:
- How much does a car cost? You want a beat up old junker at $5000 or a top-of-the-line new Ferrari at $250,000. Do you want a multi-people van or a motorcycle.
- How much does a house cost? You want a fixer upper in low demand area for $50,000 or a new larger house in an expensive area $900,000.
- How much does an airplane cost? $25,000 for an old beat up 30-year-old Cessna or $500,000 for the same mode with extras new.
The list goes on, but this is why there is a large variance. You typically get what you pay for.
