French tuning company Lazareth Auto-Moto, led by designer Ludovic Lazareth, has revealed its latest project, a road-going ATV called the Quadrazuma.
Last year Powersports Business reported on a number of four-wheelers developed for the European market, where, outfitted with lights, turn signals, alloy wheels and low-profile tires, the machines – called quadricycles – are considered street-legal vehicles.
At the time, we previewed Polaris’ 500cc Revolver concept, Grueter + Gut’s BMW-powered GG Quad, Peugeot’s hydrogen-powered Quark, and Steve Kehler’s Hayabusa-powered Kehler Quad.
Offering sportbike-like seating and powered by a 1,000cc Yamaha four-cylinder engine that makes 120 hp at 12,000 rpm, Lazerath’s Quadrazuma is outfitted with a carbon-and-fiberglass body atop a tubular frame, stainless steel under-seat exhaust, EMC shocks, brakes from a Yamaha MT01 and R1, and 17-inch IMC Indy alloy wheels with 205/40-17 and 225/35-17 Yokohama tires. Fuel comes from two 20-liter side-mounted gas tanks, the steering gear comes from a Renault Twingo, and a digital camera takes the place of a rearview mirror.
