Quadzilla II: The GG Quadster

The GG Quadster - the Quad from Hell is back!

Last year, we wrote about the BMW R1150RT-powered, 85bhp GG Quad. With its butch styling, zero to 100km/h time of 4.9 seconds and top speed of 190km/h, we thought the GG Quad was very cool indeed.

Now original GG Quad has a successor – the GG Quadster, which comes fitted with the BMW K1200S engine. Power is up to 167bhp – adequate for the 370 kilo Quadster. Claimed performance figures are zero to 100km/h in 3.5 seconds, and a top speed of about 215km/h.

The GG Quadster seems to be well equipped for a bit of fun on Sunday mornings – light and stiff billet aluminium chassis, unequal length, double A-arms with coil over shock suspension, six-speed manual gearbox (plus one reverse gear) and conventional motorcycle-style controls from the K1200S.

Of course, it’s expensive – base price for the Quadster is US$65,000 and that can go up to US$75,000 or more if you specify some additional, optional toys. Oh, well, we still love it anyway. Vist the official GG site here for more details on the Quadzilla!

And here's a video of the GG Quadster in action. Brilliant stuff!
