(Relaxnews) - Presented at EICMA as the world's first urban scooter with four wheels, the Quadro4 is slated to go on sale in 2015.
With its emphasis on comfort and safety, the Quadro4 offers a new urban mobility option for those who may be wary of riding traditional two-wheel scooters.
The Quadro4 is powered by a new 346cc, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder, four-stroke engine. With 30hp and a range of around 300km, the engine has an integrated differential and balance shaft for reduced vibration.
The star feature of the Quadro4, however, is its unique oleo-pneumatic tilting suspension, patented as the Hydraulic Tilting System (HTS). The technology contributes to optimal weight distribution in all driving conditions, at the front and the rear, while also lowering the vehicle's center of gravity. As a result, even riders unaccustomed to two- or three-wheel scooters should feel perfectly at ease on the Quadro4. The scooter also has two 12V power outlets, one under the seat and the other under the handlebars.
Slated to go on sale in spring 2015, the Quadro4 will be available in four colors (Swiss Red, Titanium Grey, Snow White, and Raw Black) along with a range of dedicated accessories. Pricing details are unannounced for the time being.
