This review was written shortly after the official end of the Voyager project in 1994 and concentrates on the line of development that led from the Quasar to the Voyager. There are photos of most of the key vehicles in this development. The review is not deeply technical in its description of the vehicles, mainly describing their position in the development line and noting their special features. Newton's three laws are however called in to support the technical advantages of the FF layout.

There is a side-view of the complete Production Voyager, minus bodywork, available. This is accurate enough to take dimensions from and would be extremely useful either to give designers an idea of the space needed for two people, or for anyone seeking to use the Reliant/Guzzi combination.
