Well well, I'm living for now in the Netherlands, and by curiosity did a short test ride with a quadro4 this morning. First time I ride a 3 or 4 wheel scooter (I own now a 1200GSA and had a bunch of BMWs including 2 GS rigs in the US), interesting animal, strange feeling to be able to stop without putting a foot on the ground, but taking off is another story. I'm contemplating maybe buying one for my wife, the steinbock version (the one pictured above). But I would like to know more about the origin of the manufacturer, cycle parts, and engine. The dealer did not know exactly and the Quadro website does not say anything on this regard, but a couple google links mention it being built in Tawain ? http://www.quadrovehicles.com/ Please educate me.
