Quad style motorcycles are basically known as quad bikes, these types of bikes are all terrain vehicles (ATV’s). Such bikes are four wheeled and as by the American National Standard Institute it is defined as a vehicle which travels on low-pressure tires, with a seat that is straddled by the operator along with handlebars for steering control. As by the name it tells you that this 4 wheel based bike is used for all kinds of grounds, and in most of the countries it has been considered illegal for normal road use, but in many areas these quad motorcycles are perfectly legal to ride on roads.
The quad motorcycles were intended for a single operator use, but most of the companies have now launched these motorcycles on which a passenger can be seated along with the operator. The ATV in early stages was actually six wheel based, later on Honda was the first company who introduced the first ever 3 wheeled base ATV in 1970, which was famously portrayed in the James Bond movie, Diamonds are Forever and other TV shows such as Magnum, P.I and Hart to Hart. Majority of the bikes at that time improved their suspension where as the engine was limited to max 250cc.
The best quad motorcycles can depend upon the models and types, as there are different quad motorcycles, some are three wheel based, some are four wheel based and before both these were the six wheel based. But as in the modern society 4 wheel based quad bikes are more common let us consider the best among them. The advantage of these 4 wheelers is that they give you good road grip and better balance on the road while you are on a slow speed. The society has developed so much that almost every famous auto company now own their own quad bike and have started marketing them as well.
Tips and comments
If we talk about the current year 2012 then the list of the best quad motorcycles according to me appear to be the KTM 525 XC, KTM 505 SX, Lazareth Wazuma V8F, Kawasaki KFX 90 and Kawasaki Prairie 4x4. The most interesting of them all appeared to be the Lazareth Wazuma V8F, as this is the bike which was created by the French they named it Wazuma V8F, the bike owns a Ferrari 3.0 litre engine and a BMW M3 six speed sequential gearbox which is very amazing in terms of a quad bike. The bike has been put on a diet, by using carbon fiber in most of the parts. To give the look they installed 18” tires on the bike with Brembo calipers brakes. But when choosing between mechanic and style, if you want style then I will prefer you to KTM 525 XC it’s not only about style but is extremely powerful as well. Most of the work done is basically on style, light weight machine with good solid suspension. While choosing among these best quad motorcycles check their reviews by the people who have owned them then make your decision.
