The folks at Aprilia, an Italian motorcycle builder, and the current owner of Moto Guzzi, is working on a concept vehicle dubbed, "Aprilia Magnet", which is perhaps best described as a trike where the two back wheels are in the front, and a single wheel in the back.

According to the vehicle's designer:
Project is based on riding sensation. I wanted to create a vehicle, which offers new kind of emotional experience while riding. I mixed motorbike's leaning character with formula one -type driving position and small sports car feeling with instruments and "being half-inside".

Main power source is small combustion engine (550cc) and drive to the wheels is done with electric engines in each wheel (lots of magnets, where the name comes from). There is also additional battery, which gives extra power for acceleration. Rider can also switch off combustion engine and slide slowly and silently in the landscape.

Magnet is capable to take pillion too -like a supersport motorcycles.
