I'm looking to identify this 1980s cartoon that had a gang of foes. They had cycled vehicles and looked like ants or scorpions from an alien race (I don’t know exactly).

    By "they had cycled vehicles and looked like ants or scorpions from an alien race", are you referring to the "gang of foes" or to the protagonists? (I’m asking to make sure your question is worded properly.) May 28 at 6:45

Perhaps you're recalling Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors (1985)

The show featured two duelling forces. The heroes are humans called the Lightning League who drive white and silver vehicles with assorted weaponry led by a teenager named Jayce. The villains are organic plant-based creatures called the Monster Minds who travel via large green organic vines, which can grow in and across interstellar space, and sprout seeds that grow rapidly into further Monster Minds. They are led by the very first of the Monster Minds, Saw Boss.

I had a friend with the same memory. We figured out it was a cartoon called InseKtorS (1994).

They fought off the enemy with musical colour guns.

The comic insect fight between Good and Evil. The Verygreens love sunlight, bright colours and hilarity. The Kruds prefer shadows and dull colours, and spend all their time plotting to overthrow the Verygreens - always coming up with gadgets, machines and crazy plots that never quite work.
