Meet the most luxurious and safest Keke you will ever find on Nigerian road. The new brand, named Motoshine Tricycle, was created after the man behind the luxury three-Wheeler, Mr Olumide Peter Adesina, boarded the popular Keke Marwa/Napep — known to come with no doors — during a heavy downpour.
In addition to keeping the passengers dry during heavy rain, the CEO, Dragon Motors, Olumide Peter Adesina, also said the tricycle will reduce the rate of accidents caused by tricycles and motorcycles in the country.
“Between December 2014 and April 2015, motorcycle accidents increased by 34 per cent, both in recorded death cases and injuries. This is a big loss to the government and society at large and Motoshine will help reduce these numbers drastically”
Formerly imported but now assembled in Lagos with the hope of empowering our youths and creating job opportunities, the tricycle cost ₦990,000 compared to ₦700,00 the 3-passengers Keke Marwa/Napep goes for in Nigeria.
It comes in two different models and designed to carry 4 – 6 passengers comfortable, compared to 3/4 the Keke Marwa carries. It is also fitted with secured doors to protect passengers from falling out and getting wet on raining days.
Other features includes a front and reverse cameras, as well as cooling fans for increased ventilation.
Powering this Keke is a 150cc Single Cylinder 4 Stroke Water Cool engine that gives a maximum speed of 60km/hr.
