Casarva Honda Valkyrie F6C IRS trike
This Yellow and Black Honda F6C Valkyrie shaft drive trike fitted with the award winning Casarva Shaft Drive independent rear suspension trike conversion has a Quaife Reverse gearbox and raked triple trees to make steering easier.
The stainless steel exhausts were upswept to give maximum ground clearance together with high profile tyres. A rack and new givi top case were fitted.
What is Independent Rear Suspension (IRS) on a trike?
Casarva IRS (independent Rear Suspension) trikes handle better and and are more comfortable to ride than those with a solid axles. The tyres stay planted in the road surface giving you maximum control if the road gets a little tricky because each side has its own suspension system which are connected by an anti-roll bar made in spring steel. This assists the shock absorbers in keeping the rear end planted, reduces rider shock and assists with steering.
The drive line irrespective of being chain, belt or shaft (like this Casarva Valkyrie trike), has a differential which allows the wheels to turn independently of each other via half shafts which have been tailor made to each trike and there are options on the track width and wheelbase length to make sure that the trike is set up to be the best it can be. Tyres and wheel size are selected to works best with each trike – one size definitively does not fit all not fit all.
