Rewaco trikes was founded in Germany, and has been in operation since 1990. It started off with the classic Volkswagen and RevTech rear mounted engines, but has since been continuously improving to become quicker, smoother, and continues to meet all safety requirements in Canada and abroad.
Today, Rewaco has 3 models available. The LT, ST, & GT. Options available for these 3 models are some such as sound system, heated seats, trailer tow package, back up assistance, and much more! The RF1 features a 1.5L Mitsubishi 4 cylinder engine that also produces a 140-hp engine, and has an acceleration of 0-100km/hr in 5.9 seconds. It has a 7-gear CVT transmission, supplied by Punch Powertrain, which has a power shifter that allows the driver to select when the transmission shifts, or if you desire, can be put into a full automatic. This trike also comes equipped with a hand throttle and integrated foot brake.
A lot of people ask us why would a German company use an American drive line, a Japanese engine, and a Dutch transmission, instead of a German made one? People also wonder why these trikes are road legal and easily insurable, while their old Volkswagen trikes are no longer? Well, the answer is the same for both questions. To meet the new safety requirements that require between 25% and 70% of the weight to be in the front end of a trike, Rewaco needed to get away from the old rear mounted engines, and switch over to a mid-mounted one. This was accomplished by using a transverse engine that sits just ahead of the rear axle. It also still allows for plenty of room for luggage in the back. Prior to 2014, Rewaco trikes were imported into Canada under special permits, however, in 2014, Transport Canada approved Rewaco under its Small Manufacturers Appendix G Pre-Clearance program, meaning that they are fully approved by Transport Canada, and no longer require inspection upon being imported.
