Tanom Motors Type-R Stage 1 was designed with one thing in mind, performance! Starting with the proven Invader TC-3 Coupe our engineers were charged to push the limits of reverse trike performance to new levels and considering how well the standard TC-3 performs, that’s saying a lot. They focused their efforts on refining an already awesome package to extract every ounce of performance from the Invader chassis, suspension, brakes and engine. The Type-R Stage 1 performance suspension upgrades include, quick ratio 1.6 steering rack, Elka® Stage Four shocks with remote reservoirs and infinite adjustability for ride height, dampening, preload and rebound. We complement the upgraded suspension with larger 12.19″ two piece Wilwood front disc brakes with four piston Dynalite calipers; clad with 18” Sparco® Assetto Gara wheels. The Type-R Stage 1, like other Invader models is powered by the legendary Suzuki® Haybusa® power plant with increased power output derived from a Brocks Performance four into one, high flow exhaust and remapped ignition. The Type-R Stage 1 has a unique lightweight frame constructed from one-and-a-half-inch tubular steel and wrapped in a sleek composite body with unique Type-R engine side covers and vehicle graphics which accentuates the package’s power and performance hidden underneath.
The Type-R package is complemented with Stage 1 exterior badge package, full safety glass windshield and rear window for protection from the elements, followed by a covered cockpit that extends to the rear roof pillars and deck lid mounted spoiler. The Type-R’s unique design provides passengers with the pleasures of open air cruising along with the performance equipment required to explore the vehicle’s limits on the track. Inside the Stage 1’s covered cockpit there are Type-R badges and two side-by-side Sparco bucket seats with Type-R embroidery that will comfortably accommodate six foot plus occupants. Drivers will find a set of controls similar to those found in any sports car – a performance steering wheel, adjustable aluminum pedal box and a six-speed sequential shifter and reverse gear. A full complement of gauges round out the cockpit along with many standard amenities including a tilt steering column, power point, cup holders and Type-R floor mats that make the Type-R Stage 1 perfect for a back road jaunt or weekend at the track.
