There were many HD motorcycles converted from two-wheeler into three-wheeled. But mostly two parallel wheels, placed in the back. A Wisconsin-based company, Scorpion Trikes made a new breakthrough by producting a set of front wheel device (complete with independent suspension) to be installed on the front of the motorcycle, especially a Harley-Davidson V-Rod.
Two wheels in the front of the so-called Reverse Trike. The production version has been circulating, ranging from Can-Am Spyder, Travertson Striker, until Polaris Slingshot. However, for the modification no one has dared to do it like Scorpion does.
Remarkably, it no need change the frame to install the device. Quite a number of additional devices are connected to the frame, and move some of the components such as the radiator is placed in front. The installing process claimed only takes 6 hours, and it can be done alone.

The price of the device is set at U.S. $5,000 or equivalent to Rp. 58 million. Scorpion promising of these components will be available in early spring 2015, or around March-May.
