Lazareth E-Wazuma Quad

Every time we cover a build from Ludovic Lazareth, it appears his next innovation is even wilder than the last. And like clockwork, each time we come across a different build, we can’t help but utter exclamations in excitement. The latest build, the electric powered E-Wazuma, is yet another milestone for the brand. Though it may not put out the same eye opening specs as say the Maserati Wazuma, the bike will still send chills up your spine.

Ditching the traditional petrol-powered engine in favor of an electric drivetrain, the propulsion system for the build is in the rear, with two 30 kW motors driving the two rear wheels. As one would expect, the drivetrain has almost zero lag, so right from the get-go you’ll feel the power and torque behind this powerful quad. Speaking of which, the 361 lb-ft of torque the Wazuma puts out isn’t at a particular RPM; its electric motor produces this torque right off the idle. Though the E-Wazuma is only a prototype at the moment, Ludovic claims these vehicles could be built for the road without substantial effort. No word on pricing yet. However, we’d be weary on riding a bike that produces 361 lb-ft of torque right off the bat.
