My first thought also, you can put a full body on it but in many states any vehicle with either 2 or 3 wheels will be considered a motorcycle. I know it was that way in CA before I left.

Can Am

I thought the same thing. But the CanAm runs from 16 to 29K.

A lot of generalities, and the line that said it all was 'a $1000 deposit all but guarantees you one of the first collector edition models'.

Smoke & mirrors?

Back in the 50's, Messerschmidt sold a 3 wheeler automobile. The bubble top raised and you climbed in, with a very small storage area behind the rear seat. It was chain-driven from a motorcycle engine. It's all in the article.
I was a sackboy at an A&P grocery store then. the elderly woman who drove this "car" would never park where she had to back out.

And let's not forget the Reliant Robin from England in the '70s

I love a car with no bumpers offering a "Bumper to Bumper Warranty"

Maybe it's a bumper car?

The first Honda truck I ever saw was just an motorcycle engine enclosed something like in the picture of this "new" design, but a lot boxier, and with a small pickup style box in the rear, and on three wheels, and chain driven.

This sighting was in the mid 1950,s on a street in Sasebo, Japan. I was stationed there at the time and serving in the Navy and attached to a Minesweeper, MSC-209, USS Woodpecker (I'm not kidding).

I understand that Honda has improved their trucks a little since then!
