I much prefer the styling of the 3CT but question if 300cc is enough.

I think they are both pretty neat looking, I saw the Niken up close and personal at Americade this year.  It's a beast of a machine and the front suspension is very stout looking.  My biggest concern about any three-wheeler and especially these are the reliability and maintenance of the whole front end.  It looks pricey to maintain and pricey to fix.  However, I much prefer these to non-tilting trikes though I recall reading that the Niken cannot stand up on it's own like the MP3 can.  Does anyone know for sure about that fact?

MP3's have a tilt lock which allows them to stand. Very expensive to repair.
