Scorpion V-Rod Reverse TrikeWed, 20 Aug 2014
There’s a lot going on in the world of three-wheelers. From Can-Am’s Spyder to Polaris’s Slingshot, and Travertson’s recently announced Striker, we have a sudden abundance of reverse trikes from which to choose. Joining the fray early next Spring is Scorpion. The difference being where the others are OEM production models, the Scorpion is a kit that transforms a stock Harley-Davidson V-Rod into a reverse trike.
Specifics are few for now, but according to Scorpion the kit will supposedly retail somewhere in the $5k vicinity. Scorpion says the initial kit is purpose-built for Harley-Davidson’s V-Rod, with tentative plans to diversify into FL models and possibly other models in the future. Unknown is whether Scorpion will require the kits to be installed by an authorized Harley-Davidson dealership or if garage mechanics can perform their own installation.
The kit was created by Superior Design. More about the Scorpion Trike can be at their website or at www.scorpiontrikes.com.
