|QUADZILLA 700 HITS THE TRACK
January 14 2009.
Quadzilla has introduced a new 700cc challenger aimed at the growing Sports/Utility 4x4 market.
The all new Quadzilla RS7 features a liquid-cooled, 698cc single cylinder DOHC 4-valve motor producing a claimed 40bhp at 5500rpm. The CV transmission features a low and high range with reverse and a selectable 4WD/2WD and diff lock.
The retail price isn't confirmed as yet but Quadzilla is aiming to keep it at an ultra competitive £5499 including VAT.
The new Quadzilla is made by Dinli in Taiwan to Quadzilla specifications. Dinli is at the top end of the scale as far as quality control is concerned and so it should be well up to the worst the UK work and sport scene can throw at it.
Chris Pearson tested it for QUAD Magazine last week and he recons it is well up to the twin jobs of work and play.
