By:   <||>  An eye-catching king of the road will soon invade Iloilo City streets.

Tricycle is a very common means of transportation in the Philippines.  Its number continues to grow.  These sporty and futuristic feel of trikes (popularly known as tricycle) is the brainchild of Abella Transport Manufacturing Industries situated at Quezon Street in Arevalo district.

Abella’s “Sidecar Body for Motorcycle” grabbed a runner up spot in the Regional Invention Contest and Exhibit (RICE) of the Department of Science and Technology (DOST6) held at Amigo Plaza Mall here Oct. 21 last year.

Originally designed and built in Iloilo City, Philippines the new generation trikes are envisioned as an environment-friendly income-generating mode of transportation.

“Imagine an electric version of these… little steps on smokey air no more for the Philippines! Superb livelihood project for the poor from the radically designed small transport three-wheeled vehicle,” said Vince Abella on his Facebook.

The wonders of technology proved amazing as the trikes of the future have generated a lot of interest from hundreds to thousand of FB users.

“It’s the look that captures the eye of every passerby. Sporty design grabs your attention at first glance. Yet this sportiness belies the incredible spaciousness inside,” the firm said in its blogsite  www.gwaforidinexperience.multiply.com

The forward-shifted body appears ready to leap forward with a radically slanted windshield slices through the wind and liberates the passengers view. From the bold face to the cut-off tail, the smoothly integrated trikes imparts a sense of spirited performance and sure-footed agility. Step inside and discover a liberating sense of openness far beyond your expectations. Stretch out, relax and enjoy the remarkable spaciousness made possible by innovative trikes packaging. Plentiful legroom and headroom keep your passengers comfortable even on extended journeys. When you drive the new trikes, you’ll feel comfortable and refreshed.

The company started in the year 2003 when the founder was still spending his days in college in one of the oldest Aeronautical School in Cebu.   He started to found a small organization in school that encourage students to make some research study about designing and building an ultra-light aircraft using local materials.  And since it was too difficult for a student to produce funds he dreamed of finding some effective ways to provide it.  One was selling trikes, but time was running out, he graduated from college.  He created lots of trikes designs that failed; from drawings to miniature models, and prototypes.  Spend lots of money from family and his partner, the co-founder of the company. He approached some other investors but mostly rejected him. Years later, one of his brothers from his church community wished him to design a trikes (sidecar) that fits his budget and the design of his model motorcycle. And there it is!  It was year 2006 when it came out to the public for the first time.  Lots of people wish to have it, even ladies loved and admired it, even happened that some kids beg on their knees to ride on it.  Until number of trikes units sold, increased.  Today its design and engineering continues to develop to more innovative and competitive quality, buyers would surely go for.
