Thanks for being a knowledgeable, patient, and detail-oriented guy – a fitting agent to represent the precision German HP Velotechnik machines you sell. I thoroughly enjoyed my March trike demo ride with you in Prospect Park. That ride, coupled with your experienced, unrushed counsel, convinced me to purchase a trike from you.
Please know that I’m loving my new, flaming orange HPV Scorpion fs. Most all is well with it so far. What’s not? Its 69 year-old powerplant!
I’ve passed your business card, together with my recommendation, to a few curious bikers met on my three-wheeled outings. Maybe they’ll contact you…
Best regards, G.P. (engineer, retired)
“From the first turn of the pedals, the Scorpion fs feels like an HP Velotechnik. Once you’ve ridden any of their products you’ll understand. They just have a solid, sturdy, purposeful feel that you don’t find many other places. The Scorpion fs doesn’t flex anywhere at all and is eerily quiet and smooth. I don’t know how HPVelotechnik makes a machine with so many moving parts feel like it has none at all.” – Bent Rider Online.

Words fail to convey the experience of riding a Scorpion recumbent trike, so let’s try a fun example. The 2009 Trike Race at the Spezi show in Germersheim was won by HP Velotechik engineer Martin Wöllner on a Scorpion fs 26 recumbent trike. Trikerace-Picturegalery.
Of course, one can ride a Scorpion fs slowly. The Scorpion fs is stable, comfortable, well-engineered, and a joy to ride at any speed.
