that's the way my Honda Goldwing was. the engine had to be running to keep the battery charged. that electric reverse must have pulled a lot of amperage.....toggle quoted message. . .
what Jim mentioned though, a friend has a late 40s Harley Davidson Servicar (3 wheeler with the box between the rear wheels), it has an actual reverse in the transmission. wish he'd get it running, it has a live rear axle and the rider must tip it onto 2 wheels to go around a corner with no differential.

Reverse on these bikes is usually an electric motor that engages the chain or belt and moves the bike in reverse slowly while it is in neutral on the transmission.
