Peugeot Quad - Now that’s an Eco friendly quad bike!
I found this interesting article on T3 a UK web mag.
Peugeot reveals the Quark – the cutting-edge quad bike with a difference…
Unless you’re a new-wave shepherd or Ozzy Osbourne chances are you don’t go bombing around on quad bikes that often. But it’s about time we stole the beloved quad bike away from the countryside and gung-ho metal legends. Since witnessing Peugeot’s new eco-friendly Quark quad bike at the Paris Motor Show, we’ve decided that it’s not fair for such a city slicker to be stuck out in the sticks. More robust than any scooter, and friend to Mother Earth, the Quark could pave the way for a quad bike revolution with its cool commuter appeal.
The Quark runs off four independent electric motors, powering each of its four chunky alloy wheels. This new technology means that it comes equipped with ABS, cornering assistance and a host of other driver-friendly gizmos to improve the quality of your ride. Plus when you hit the brakes it uses the force generated to recuperate energy.
Along with its snappy styling the Quark boasts a truckload of other enticing features, like its Removable Communications Interface. This tidy gadget includes an antitheft device, sat nav, MP3 reader and Bluetooth telephone. Viva la revolution!
