There were about 347 of these made between 1985 and 1990 in Owosso Michigan by the Owosso Motor Car Company. The first 21 were called Litestars and then the name changed to Pulse. A Pulse is a motorcycle. It rides on 2 main wheels and has 2 outrigger wheels (one on each side). It is classified in most states as a 3 wheel motorcycle. It has a 123" wheelbase and an overall length of 192" X 76" width X 54" height and weighs about 1000 lbs.

The PULSE is a "GCRV", r Ground Cruising Recreational Vehicle. This new term appropriately describes the PULSE because the vehicle has the performance and acceleration of a motorcycle engineered into a comfortable weatherproof vehicle with many of the attributes of an automobile. An alternate term for the PULSE is an "autocycle".

Its body resembles a high performance jet aircraft, et drives like a sports car. The exceptionally long wheel base provides unmatched stability and driving comfort for a vehicle of its weight, lass and fuel economy. It seats two (tandem) and has almost six (6) cubic feet of storage space.

Slide back the canopy and settle into the comfortable cockpit of the PULSE. The full instrumentation is neatly arranged, il light and temperature gauges & tachometer. Punch the accelerator, ou're ready for take off working your way through the 5 gears as you slide effortlessly through the traffic or on an open freeway. The PULSE provides a driving experience unequalled in any other type of vehicle.

The PULSE is a two (2) wheeled vehicle equipped with an additional two (2) wheels, ocated as outriggers, ne on each side. The outrigger wheels provide balance for the vehicle when it is at rest or in a turn.

As the gyroscopic action of the main wheels increase the outriggers no longer bear weight. It is impossible to tell which outrigger is touching the ground until a turn is made if the air shocks are at the right pressure.

With no more than three (3) wheels in contact with the ground at any one time, he PULSE is considered a three (3) wheeled vehicle & is licensed as a motorcycle. In certain states a special category of license has been created, uch as in Michigan, ppropriate for the PULSE, n "autocycle."

The body styling of the PULSE gives it a fantastic futuristic look, t the same time following form with function. The aerodynamic shape allows the vehicle to cut through the wind and results in unusually high fuel mileage and performance. The PULSE has ten (10) times less drag than a motorcycle and its rider. The body is also designed in such a way as to increase stability and directional control as speed increases. The drag coefficient is .193
