You have the car license and the passion for large cars, but you have neither the motivation nor the budget to pass the A license? Don’t panic: here are 5 ultra-powerful motorcycles that only require a B license. Watch out: 100% power and testosterone selection.
The Swiss manufacturer Gruter & Gut (GG) surprised the world of inverted motorized tricycles by releasing the Taurus which uses a BMW engine.

1. Can Am Spyder RS (BRP)
With its six-spoke rims and its Batpod look, the Can Am Spyder RS is a benchmark in terms of inverted tricycles. The stitched saddle and the design body make this three-wheeler without a license a model of its kind. Since the 2013 model, new developments have been made to make the Can Am one of the five craziest machines in this ranking.
Very surprising model signed Rewaco, this family size trike (for 3 people) mixes vintage and modernity. This vehicle is ready to take you on an adventure! A 7-speed automatic transmission also provides dynamic driving.
2. Celtic (Side Bike)
The most innovative trike, both technically and aesthetically, is undoubtedly the Celtik. It was produced in the department of Isère by Side Bike, and after a tough battle in 2007, obtained the precious certification. The chassis allows in particular to have the same position as on a motorcycle. Braking is integral with ABS on all three wheels.
The Canadian brand Campagna has bet on an incredible machine, reminiscent of Star Wars. We wonder if this tricycle is more like a trike or a car without a license. With an almost insolent price, this three-wheeled motorcycle without a license has never crossed the Atlantic to run aground in France.

What license to drive a 50cc motorcycle?
