Harley V-Rod becomes reverse trike

A conversion kit that turns a Harley-Davidson V-Rod into a “reverse trike” with two wheels in the front like a Can-Am Spyder roadster is coming to market next year.

The Wisconsin company also plans to make a second kit for FL frame Touring Harleys and maybe others if there is suitable demand.
Scorpion Trikes claim the water-cooled V-Rod conversion can be done in an afternoon and that there are no frame modifications required. However, it seems like a lot to ask of the existing frame and I’m aware of what damage some other trike conversions can do to the original bike, so anyone considering the conversion should be aware.Scorpion Trikes V-Rod conversion
There is a growing demand for three-wheelers as the average age of riders increases. Go to just about any rally these days and there are more and more trikes.
The Scorpion Trikes kit will eventually be backed up by a host of options such as frame covers, bodywork add-ons, and lighting kits.
The V-Rod roadster certainly looks good, but how it will handle is another matter. Click on this short video of the Scorpion Trike being ridden slowly in a carpark.

  1. That means no one can ride on the back because that causes resistance also. Boo on the Harley corp. for being money hungry. I have bought 6 harleys in the past 10 yrs . What do you think will be my next bike??????

  2. “The Vrod roadster certainaly looks good”
    Are you blind? Lol they have taken a perfectly good nightrod and made it into something justin beiber would ride
