The SYM importer has been bringing these in for the past few years. I've not seen any/many on the road however. 12,000 a pop is a bit on the high side around here. https://youtu.be/Is_RjEvDCVQ

I opted to move from 2 wheels to 3 to enable my wife to ride with me. Had the Quadro 4 been an available option here in the USA, I suspect that I would have chosen this over the far more expensive Spyder.

I think with 4 wheels, it would be considered a car here. And be subject to all the regulations they could throw at it.

Unless it could be made (and be able to be proven) so that no more than three
of the wheels could/would be on the ground at any given time; then it could be
deemed to be a trike which meets the "motorcycle" criteria.

That ain't happenin though. I agree, it looks like a heck of a lot of fun.

What are those 4 wheeled ATVs classified as? They're, surely, not cars.

ORVs (Off Road Vehicles), recreational vehicles, utility vehicles or
some such. I think some states classify them differently.
But yeah, not cars and often times (depending on the state) they
are generally not allowed to legally use public roads.

I don't think I'd like one of those. I don't see a need for the extra complication, lots more moving parts and expense. It seems to me a trike would be more practical and affordable. For someone who has a specific need for something like that it might be fun. I do think it might be difficult to get it licensed for public roads in most states.

The "trick" with these 3 & 4 wheeled scooters is that the EU, in their infinite wisdom (or maybe Piaggio euros) decided that you don't need a specific "motorcycle" classification on your driver's licence to operate one on the streets.

Years ago we had a whole flock of 3 wheeled "trucks" with 90cc engines, no tail lights, and little, if any safety devices clogging the streets. Greece passed a law and got them off the streets to everyone's applause. Then, Piaggio came out with the M3 and, now, we're right back where we started with the addition of riders thinking they're safe because they've got 3 wheels instead of two.
