If you can't split lanes, join'em. As a trike, you're entitled to all the benefits of a motorcycle including the carpool lane, with less of the exposure. Built by Scorpion Motorsports (www.scorpionmotorsports.com) in Miami, Florida, the P6 consists of a steel tube space frame with an aluminum semi-monocoque and seating for one, complete with steering wheel and sequential shifter (electronic paddle shifting is optional). Two big tires up front containing Wilwood brakes have no problem slowing the 725-pound Scorpion, though the rear one has a much harder time corralling the 126 (crankshaft) horses put out by the standard ZX-6R engine, in first gear anyway—a struggle you can hear clearly from a couple blocks away. In spite of that, Scorpion says the GRP composite-cloaked P6 does 0-60 in 3.5 seconds and 0-100 in 10, and is capable of 1.5 g cornering. Scorpion's happy to build you one just like it for $29,900; $6k more gets you the turbo! And if you already have a ZX-6R motor, Scorpion also offers kits in various stages of completeness.
