The Onyx Megatrike, Peugeot's extension of it's 'Onyx Concept', is a three-wheeled scooter that is obviously derived from it's four-wheel predecessor. Colored similarly with the Onyx, the Onyx Megatrike is a hybrid that can travel 18 miles in electric mode where the rider can switch between sport-bike and leisure scooter (a compartment is removed to achieve this effect). The bicycle, though less in technical stature, is still technologically advanced with it's mostly carbon-fiber frame and electronic drive-train.

"Light and Darkness are not isolated parts, a clear image might just be a shadow. Make a stand or flee civilization to beyond world's end.
