Recently, on our roads, one can increasingly meet such transport, which is still quite exotic for the CIS, as road quad bikes. Their widespread use is partly hampered by high cost, but to a greater extent by the seasonality of use. No matter how insulated the driver of this vehicle is in winter, snow and frost do not favor frequent trips in the cold season.
Road ATVs first appeared 30 years ago. The first of them was released in 1982 by the Japanese engineering company Suzuki. One of the main reasons for the introduction of the 4-wheel ATV was not only Suzuki's concern for its customers, but also the strong commercial competition between vehicle manufacturers.
Road ATVs are excellent vehicles for all lovers of high-speed driving, which have excellent technical parameters for acceleration and braking. These devices have good grip on almost any road surface, which provides a person with the maximum degree of protection.
If you decide to purchase this type of transport for yourself, you need to carefully consider what exactly you need it for. There should be a clear distinction between utility sport quads designed for off-road use and road quads that have a negative perception of full off-road with sticky mud and rugged terrain. This vehicle will not be able to cross any obstacles and storm ravines.
Most of the time, a road quad bike is not equipped with the luggage rack needed to carry various loads. This unit is designed for fast driving on roads, not off-road. It is perfectly suited for city driving, as it is equipped with road tires, alloy wheels, a differential and a complete set of lighting equipment. The presence of effective brakes designed for road riding gives it confidence. As a rule, road ATVs are decorated with an abundance of chrome parts, giving them an extraordinary futuristic look.
This type of transport is great for overcrowded megacities, where many kilometers of traffic jams accumulate on the roads. The road ATV will be able to easily bypass any congestion of cars. It has the stability of a car, but at the same time it can give its owner the feeling of riding a powerful bike.
The design of these vehicles is becoming more and more elegant every year. At the same time, when looking at such an apparatus, anyone is left with the impression of a swift and powerful machine, whichassociated with speed. At its core, the body of such a vehicle is something between a motorcycle and an ATV. Most road quad bikes come with a manual transmission, although automatic transmissions can also be found. They have a throttle grip similar to that of a motorcycle. Currently, on sale you can find ATVs of various modifications from various leading world companies, although Japanese companies still have the palm in the production of this type of vehicle.
