With a top speed of 110-120 km / h, you can imagine that the performance of the Quadro 350D on the highway they are rather modest. It is quite sensitive to changes in the inclination of the terrain and as soon as you can find yourself driving at 100 km / h as at 130 km / h. That if, luckily and driving alone, it is very difficult to get below the three figures even though the unevenness is considerable.
Aerodynamic protection is excellent, even for people with my size. The head is quite well protected from the wind as well as the shoulders. Stability on the highway is flawless and it steps safely from the front.
Beware of the sail effect that can occur on days with strong winds. There is a lot of side surface And in that case he will tend to move in direction, although he will never be nervous even remotely. The problem is that their reactions are slow and we can suddenly find ourselves with a gust of wind that dislodges us in the lane and to put it back in place, it will take a moment more.
Quadro 350D, the fun is in the rain
I was lucky, because in this case it was luck, to carry the Quadro 350D so much with wet asphalt as with dry asphalt. It is a joy to see how when the rest of the motorcyclists go straight like a sail, you can allow yourself the luxury of going to the bottom, braking very late and knocking yourself over with almost no qualms (well, the laws of friction still exist for everyone).
Give absolute confidence in this field and that is why in France and specifically in Paris, where I have been, the number of three-wheelers of these characteristics win by a landslide. It does not matter that the street is paved, with subway bars, potholes, sewers, more painted with lines than the face of a “Princess of the Neighborhood”. It's like a car and you only have to worry about going from A to B, no matter what you are treading.
On one of my test runs, it was already dark and I opened the gas at a full incline coming out of a yield above a sewer. In other circumstances, I might have either fallen or saved the fall by chance. With the Quadro 350D all I had to do was say: Yepa! And continue with normality after a skid to the Casey Stoners.
People can see vehicles of this type as monsters, but they allow you to maneuver between cars as if it were a normal scooter but at the same time, at the first scare you will save the situation while with another vehicle, you risk a fall which can be from a simple drag or something as common as breaking a foot.
Quadro 350D, the case of the incredulous passenger
On this occasion, I had the pleasure of bringing two different passengers. One, the regular one who has told you about each and every one of the bikes that I have tried. The other, a motorcyclist friend who usually hangs out with me when I do a test and who on this occasion also acted as a guinea pig.
The posture of the passenger at Quadro 350D It is very wide, as is usually the case for megascooters. The seat is very wide and very soft. I didn't even sit back at all to play with him.
Dispose of individual stirrups for your feet, about those who told me that they are lower than normal which makes your legs very rested. At the back, both handles allow it to be held comfortably if at any time we see it necessary. In a nutshell, ideal to do a few kilometers, both by city and by road without suffering any fatigue.
Now let's move on to the case of the incredulous passenger, to whom when I told him I was going to take him on the Quadro 350D He told me if we would arrive or we would be stranded with the pole cart.
It took him exactly four minutes to see with his own eyes (well, I guess this because I don't know if he was wearing them open or closed) that running won't run much but cornering has like a 125GP from before, relatively speaking. It was to spike into a roundabout and make an exterior to a car by scratching with the easel and then hearing from the rear that it was unreal how you could attack the curves.
In only problem of Quadro 350D a duet is that its benefits are still a little more limited, and now the speed in unfavorable conditions (remember that I live in Asturias and here, flat what is said flat..) happens to be a little higher than 90 km / h. Enough but it was a bit scarce at times. Then flattening no since we exceeded 110 km / h with relative ease.
Little more to tell you until tomorrow. The only thing, remind you that tomorrow we will put a video of the Quadro 350D that we have done and in which you will see in detail how the front axle works in a real test drive on the road. Do not miss it.
