Was a crime involved? Were the motorcycles being ordered by an individual? a group? A country?

War relevant? Movies?

Did the size of the motorcycles change? Did the positioning of some aspect of the motorcycle change? Was something added to the motorcycle?

Were the motorcycles made silent or quieter? Were their fuel consumption or emissions changed? Did a tool or weapon of some kind get added to the motorcycle? Did some kind of armouring or defense mechanism get added?

Is sport relevant? Were those who ordered the bikes a gang?

Did they change the position of the throttle? The brake? The clutch? Some combination of the above?

Was the group united by a common profession? A common hobby? (I would guess motorcycle polo team, but sports is irrelevant)

Did they order bikes for left-handed people? (if this makes sense in any way)
Is their profession related to motor bikes? are they: police? driving instructors? stunt performers?

I guess they were not all left-handed .. so was there another reason why they needed the bikes altered this way? did they want to have the right hand free while riding? in order to give signs when overtaking a car? for easier pulling the gun? (I very much hope that this is not the reason ..)

Mimino,

'I guess they were not all left-handed .. so was there another reason why they needed the bikes altered this way? did they want to have the right hand free .. for easier pulling the gun? (I very much hope that this is not the reason ..)'

Correct

Some years US Police Forces were the major market for left-handed motorcycles. This allowed the police to hold a gun and shoot with their right hands while still controlling the bike with the left.
