Top 10 Vehicles Powered By Motorcycle Engines


Quote:
The history of motorcycle engines powering other vehicles goes back a long way. Look at the original Morgan 3 Wheeler, for example. Almost a century ago, J.A.P. bike engines were plunked onto the front of a strange piece of machinery with two wheels in front and one in the back. It proved to be popular and a rather high-performing vehicle in its time. For this Top 10 list we take a look at other applications for motorcycle engines. As you can imagine with a list like this, there are a wide variety of vehicles. Some are production cars, while others are one-offs or boutique items. And yes, even though this is Motorcycle.com, I want to get behind the wheel of every single one of these! So, if youíre a rep from one of the below companies (or are simply a kind soul who owns one), give me a jingle and letís make it happen!

Interesting comment on the "Scorpion P6"...

"Looking at videos of the P6 on the internet, the thing looks like a handful, prone to snap oversteer if youíre not careful, a claim Duke can confirm after a brief stint driving one. Still, Iím sure the experience would be exhilarating."

When Cycle Canada did a test-ride on the new Polaris three-wheeler, they 'backed' it off the road twice w/ snap oversteer, then did several articles on WHY three wheels is a "loser".

I believe I have those as .jpegs SOMEWHERE....
