There was an article in a Sydney newspaper recently, supposedly a yamaha sales rep admitted that they were suppling bikes and those 4 wheel trike things for mm4. Try and find the post, in this forum from about 2 months ago for more info.

Methinks he means QuadBikes/ATV's, which could be pretty cool.

Hmmm, ATV's would be cool. Until the kids start to buy them in drifts aftert they have seen Max be-heading an enemy with the help of a quadbike and a cliff...

Turbocharged Quads from Yahama and Kawa.





Maybe a few Dirt Bikes too.

they did a lot of auditions up near Newcastle NSW some time ago - its about 1/2 a slab north of sydney. Sounded like all dirt bikes. Hey Dave H - those 4 wheel trike things are the quads/ATV;s, trikes only got 3 wheels (lol) I had a Tri-Moto Yamaha years ago, heaps of fun you could pull balance-point wheelstands at barely walking pace, and just keep going. Turboe'd quads mmmmm where did I put those spare underpants ??


If they are using Yamaha Raptors, no need to turbo. Those things are unbeleivable - 660 single yammascreamer that will do nearly 100mph !!! fantastic.


all this scuttlebutt about biker trash is very pleasing to my @rse.

Sounds like its going to be pretty cool with dirt bikes and maybe atv's;but i hope they have some street bikes too, like the old kawa kz's.........by the way have you guys seen that turbocharged kit that http://www.mrturbo.com has for the yamaha Raptor[click on turbo kits,then street turbo kits,and scroll down and click on Yamaha raptor].....not that it needs one.......but it would be cool.....lol.....oh yea i'm still wanting to build me a "goose" replica.......whats the base model of the dirt bikes[cuase i know they'll modify them] and let me know if you'll here anything on street bikes.....thanks.

had a look, what a weapon that would be !!! Only ever ridden 1 turbo bike, a GpZ 750 kawa. It was great, its not hard to imagine the Raptor would struggle to keep the front wheels down....... when i was into trikes/quads pretty big, early 80's, one of the dirt bike mags ran an article about a fast trike - there was a speed shop in SanFran - CA, that did up a trike, built to spec for a guy from Florida. It used a 750 H2 triple Image motor in a custom frame - built for dirt draggin' .......this thing apparently smoked the tyres up to 4th gear.....on the tar !!


My guess is if they are using Yamahas, they would have to be on WR426's or perhaps YZ250's - both f/strokes, very capable bikes. KZ's,hmmmm it would be nice but I doubt it......sound like all off-road stuff, mind you there is a bloke in WA who has fitted knobbies to his Z1R, and drags it on the beaches around Perth !!! its the tractor from Hell.
