Berkut Velomobile for Sale in Germany

Berkut Velomobil Back in the late 1990s the Russian firm Berkut built two velomobile prototypes. One seems to have ended in Canada, the other one is now for sale in Germany.

This red prototype seems to be the earlier prototype. As most Berkut trikes it is front-wheel-driven and steered. This is archieved by a central gear-box with cardan-shafts. Thus the drive train is completely inside and protected. The body is closed, therefore the gear-box can be switched to reverse gear. You can currently buy this very special velomobile from a German bike shop (more photos there).

I contacted Berkut and hope to be able to publish an interview with Vadim Mazaev soon, who used to be the Berkut boss.
