Everyone's favorite Smoky Mountains motorsports photographer, Killboy, caught shots of an unidentified trike as it traversed the Tail of the Dragon, betraying its duty as a test vehicle by way of various manner of tech gear. Speculation on its origin ranges from a BMW skunkworks project to a KTM-Audi mashup for the weekend-racer set. Like the Volkswagen GX-3 concept, killed by VW legal before it made production, it's got two wheels up front and one in the back, but unlike the GX-3, it's got a far more bike-like seating position. We're sure there's more to come, but from whom?
