THE EMERGENCE OF THE QUAD BIKE
The quad bike has emerged from the original
ATV's which were originally built for traveling across terrains of
water. Now known as Amphibious ATV's, the original all terrain vehicles
were mostly intended for ponds and streams, swamps, and other wetlands.
They were designed to float and also held more than one person at a
time. A control stick or steering wheel was also used instead of
In 1982 Suzuki decided to also get in on the ATV/quad bike craze but
decided also to take a new direction for these kinds of vehicles. They
produced the first 4 wheel quads, and the premise was that these could
be used specifically for beginners. In 1985 they decided to market a new
4 wheel quad bike that would now be specifically for high speed drivers
for the purpose of racing. Of course, Honda then responded in 1986 with
the introduction of 4 wheel drive quad bikes. These type of quad bikes
have been the most popular of all quads since they were introduced.
Ranchers, farmers, and construction workers are just some of the people
who now use these type of vehicles to help get their job done.
