Cost effective ATV hits the market

Published:  09 July, 2013

Quadzilla Quads has introduced the Terrain 500 4x4, a powerful and tough 500cc utility specification machine aimed squarely at the agricultural and land management market sectors, where the retail price of just £3500 plus VAT will prove attractive to those who believe that utility ATV prices have spiralled out of control.

The new Terrain model is based on Quadzilla's highly-successful work and leisure 500ES model, which has gained a reputation for rugged reliability and strong all-round performance since it was introduced into the Quadzilla range in 2008.

The 500ES has proved ultra-reliable in a wide range of work, leisure and even sporting environments, out-performing many larger capacity, high-cost ATVs across all activities and uses.

Quadzilla saw the 500ES as the ideal basis for developing a more work-focussed machine and set about redesigning and testing a number of areas over an eighteen month period in real working conditions here in the UK.

The new Terrain features the latest development of Quadzilla's well-proven 500cc, single cylinder, SOHC, liquid-cooled engine, driving though a CVT automatic transmission with selectable 2 and 4 wheel drive with a front wheels diff lock. An all-round independent suspension system maintains traction, control and rider comfort in tough conditions and hydraulic disc brakes make light work of controlling speed.

The specification includes ultra-tough steel wheels, full-size front and rear racks, full road legal kit including a powerful full lighting system, a tow bar and a front electric winch.

The Terrain is available in red, black or blue from Quadzilla dealers nationwide.
