Quadro to sell four tesseract-style motorcycle

The convergence of the car and the we forecast last year set to continue with the first showing today at EICMA in Milan of a range of three and wheeled scooters by Italian Quadro. The start-up is particularly because the company is to be run by Luciano the man who designed both the Piaggio MP3 scooter and the Yamaha Tesseract motorcycle shown in 2007.

The new will use an hydraulic tilting patented by Marabese. In 2011 see the 350cc three-wheeled Quadro and in the year, a 500cc four-wheeler. The motorcycle will evolve a full family of supersports, electric and off-road models, better braking, faster and more safety and stability a motorcycle.

Quadro Tecnologie is not average start-up, as it’s a company headed by Luciano Over the last few decades, design company has worked on than 450 different design in the motorcycle marketplace, working for the of Vespa, Piaggio, Moto Aprilia, Gilera, Triumph and Marabese designed the Tesseract for and the MP3 for Piaggio.

Marabese is obviously delighted to be making the transition from a designer working under the of a manufacturer, to becoming the final of the finished product. His personal to the press at the announcement of the new company as follows: “The highest for a designer is certainly to conceive with a strong impact on the Certainly I have received critiques and praises throughout my in design.

Many times my were adjusted according to the needs of major clients. As of there will be no more in vision!

“Thanks to a team of that believes in me and in my ideas, the I have been working on for are becoming concrete.

“Today I the opportunity of enjoying the appreciation of my first hand without an who may dilute the pleasure of seeing in eyes the same dream I have been chasing for so A new line of vehicles that better suit people’s is my dream and it is becoming reality.” Marabese

Marabese’s plans are for a suite of machinery with the first and four wheeled machines in 2011 and a full line of to be released between 2011 and

As the designer of both the Paiggio MP3 and Tesseract, Marabese has obviously able to take on board the of the manufacturers to create a second tilting system which the claims has been ten years in Marabese’s Hydraulic Tilting (HTS) is an entirely hydraulic does not involve any electronic in the process (making maintenance and less frequent), and will be on all three- and four-wheeled vehicles in the Suite.

Ultimately, the impact of Marabese’s decision to create his own company be judged by the marketplace, but his designs to be tailor-made to overcome the problems the faces on its roads. The European industry is currently in crisis the Global Financial Crisis has thwarted economic growth and confidence. It has without doubt, failed to recognise that it has selling to the same target over and over and that and circumstances change.

The world is out of space on its roads, and over the few decades, we’ll all be forced to reconsider our personal transport as point-to-point times continue to on public roads. Vehicles of the will be smaller in size, and the stability that three or wheels on a motorcycle-sized commuter will almost certainly a major factor in purchasing

In Europe, Piaggio’s three-wheeled MP3 has been one of the success stories of the few years. Over the last few Gizmag’s editor-in-chief Noel and I have attended events in Holland and France we often on the number of MP3s we saw on the roads. its initial introduction by Piaggio four years ago the ultra-stable, three-wheeler has been released in 125 cc, 250 cc, 400 cc and 500 cc plus a hybrid 125 cc plus and a new 300cc version with was shown for the first time a ago at Intermot in Koln.

The advantages of a four wheeled may not be obvious but with twice as contact between tyre and at each end, the degree of is at least doubled, and hence speed can be significantly increased, braking distances can be significantly On top of that, the types of road irregularities which could a crash on a two-wheeler (tram potholes, curbs, cobblestones are not nearly as significant when is being shared with wheel not in contact with the or pothole. Also, many allow three- and four-wheeled to be driven using a car licence than the motorcycle licence.

The first Quadro to become to the public will be t he EUR7000 US$ 9800) 350cc three-wheeled 3D which is very similar to and be a direct competitor to Piaggio’s MP3 of scooters when it goes on next April.

The 500cc (US$12,600) four-wheeler 4D is due towards the end of year (2011) and is much in layout to the stunning Yamaha prototype shown at the Tokyo Show in 2007.

The 3D three-wheeler produce slightly less 20 kW, with a weight of less 200 kg. The hydraulic system that the front wheels makes it to lower the center of gravity 40% compared to Piaggio’s MP3.

The 4D will arrive in late and the tilting system used on the 3D is applied to the pair of rear with the torque controlled by a The 4D will have a top speed of 150 km/h from a new single of 500 cc producing around 40 horsepower and the will be less than 240 kg.

The 4D will sell for around EUR
