Scorpion were motorcycles produced fron 1963 to 1965, in Bishops Stortford, Hertfordshire.
1963 Trials and scrambles models were introduced with T-frame chassis constructed from sheet-steel box sections welded together. The frame loop had square-section tube bolted in place, so alternative engines were easy to fit although these were usually the Villiers 197cc 9E or 246cc 32A for trials and the 36A or Starmaker for scrambles.
1964 Late in the year a road-racing model was added, this with its own Scorpion designed and made engine hung from a tubular spine frame.
1965 Only the show prototype was seen and the make soon disappeared.
