Squire has paired one of its ST3 sport sidecars with Yamaha's XJR 1300 for the 2009 Motorcycle Show. The British company pioneered modern sports sidecars, developing its first model in 1973 for use with multi-cylinder Japanese superbikes of the time, such as Honda's 750-4.

With an exceptionally strong perimeter frame, single-piece glass fibre body and 13" polished alloy wheels, the single-seat ST3 sports sidecar is particularly suitable for high performance sports motorcycles, where precise high speed handling is essential. Tipping the scales at 91KG, the ST3 measures 218cm long x 86cm wide, with 114cm of legroom for comfort and a generous boot for extra carrying capacity.

Squire merged with Watsonian sidecars in 1989 and the company still manufactures sidecars in the Heart of England, all hand built by British craftsmen.

Powered by a muscular 96 horsepower 4-cylinder engine with quality Öhlins suspension, the torquey Yamaha XJR is well suited to sidecar work and its traditional tubular steel frame is both strong and practical for attaching sidecar fittings.

Squire ST3 sidecars provide plenty of sporty space for passenger and luggage; prices start at £3495 (colour matched paintwork is an optional extra). A full factory fitting service, with tuition for novice drivers, is also available.
