The Retriever – the little motorbike that could

Image

If you have aspirations of running your own breakdown towing service, then check out The Retriever from Swedish company Coming Through. The Retriever is a heavily modified Honda Goldwing 1800cc motorcycle with a hideaway car-towing rig on the back. Designed to squeeze into those hard to reach breakdowns and avoid the resulting gridlock.

The car trailer has a 3 wheel design that isolates the bike from the weight of the car and allows the bike to corner naturally. The trailer is also fitted with its own brakes to assist with safe transport of the car and rider. The trailer is hydraulic powered and just needs to be fitted around the car and then raised before it is secured. All you need to do is come up with a company name.

The Retriever is a recovery vehicle based on a motorcycle. The superior agility of the motorcycle has been preserved in order to minimize the time immediately wasted as traffic thickens. The Retriever is built to recover most types of passenger cars.
