Frequently Asked Questions

Several customers have asked us questions regarding our Tanom Invader vehicles.
Below are some of the answers to the most frequently asked questions.

What is the Invader? Is it a motorcycle, or what?
It’s currently a motorcycle in 45 states, five other states including Virginia have enacted Autocycle legislation; which means you can operate the Invader with an ordinary operator’s license. Additionally, in 45 States, either through motorcycle or Autocycle legislation, you may operate the Invader coupe models without a helmet. We anticipate that most of the other 45 states will enact Autocycle legislation over the next few years.

What distinguishes the Invader from other similar vehicles?
There are many design features that distinguish the Tanom Invader from other vehicles in the three-wheeled vehicle marketplace. First, is the quality of construction and attention to detail. The Invader has a tubular steel chassis that totally surrounds and protects the passenger compartment; real tempered glass windshield; depending on model, either 3 point seat belts or a 5 point harness; and over-sized brakes more typical of an automobile than a motorcycle. The fit and finish of the Invader is impeccable. The chassis is completely hidden by stylish body panels that cause Invaders to look fast sitting still. The passenger compartment is roomy with adjustable seats and pedal controls to accommodate a broad physical range of drivers and passengers.

Where can I purchase an Invader?
Tanom has attended four SEMA dealer only shows and developed a list of over 100 prospective dealers nationwide. Tanom has established its initial flagship dealer, Village Motorsports, in Unionville, Virginia. As we are now expanding production, we will quickly add dealers in NC, FL, NV and throughout the United States.
