in theory anything is possible

however the closest I've seen is this firm

who have yet to bring this to market - if they ever will

and there are a lot of inherent stability issues to solve, chiefly with the steering geometry as a lot of motorcycle cornering force comes from they way they lean over

if its not going ot lean then you need to be able to turn the wheel at a greater angle to generate more cornering

I'd say avoid it for now
