Quadro Vehicles announces six new bikes for EICMA

Swiss motorcycle company Quadro will arrive in the UK next year, with a range of combustion-engined and all-electric scooters

Swiss motorcycle manufacturer Quadro Vehicles has announced a range of six new combustion-engined and all-electric vehicles for this year’s EICMA Milan Motorcycle Show – all of which are designed for short-distance urban travel. Quadro machines will be for sale in the UK next year.

The brand’s first vehicle, called the Qooder, is a unique four-wheel commuter scooter which Quadro says combines the excitement of a motorcycle with the safety of a car. It’s powered by a 32bhp 399cc single-cylinder petrol engine and features a hydraulic tilting system which allows the vehicle to lean over in corners like a conventional motorbike.

Quadro will also launch an all-electric version of the Qooder, called the eQooder. It’s powered by a 7.2kWh lithium-ion battery pack and features an electric motor which generates a maximum output of 59bhp. Quadro Vehicles claims the eQooder has a range of 93 miles, while a charge from empty to 80 per cent capacity takes a claimed four hours using a conventional domestic plug socket.

The Quadro xQooder features the same engine and tilting system as the Qooder, but with a few tweaks to make it suitable for off-roading. There’s a range of steel underbody protection panels, knobbly off-road tyres, LED headlamps, an off-road “enduro” seat, a reprofiled fuel tank and a reworked suspension system.

In addition to its four-wheeled products, Quadro Vehicles will also launch a trio of three-wheeled scooters. The QV3 is powered by a 28bhp 346cc single-cylinder petrol engine and features a similar tilting system to the Qooder on its front two wheels. It also comes with three disc brakes and double shock absorbers for the rear wheel.

The QVe is the QV3’s all-electric counterpart. It’s powered by a 24bhp electric motor and a 7.2kWh lithium-ion battery pack – and offers a claimed range of 68 miles. Quadro claims a charge from empty to 80 per cent capacity takes a claimed five hours using a standard 220V household socket.

Finally, the Nuvion is a compact, lightweight, combustion-engined, three-wheeled scooter that can be ridden with a standard car license. It’s powered by a 29bhp 278cc single-cylinder petrol engine, which sends drive to the rear wheel via a CVT gearbox. Like the rest of the Quadro range, it features a hydraulic tilting system.
