The Moment Naira Marley Acquired Quad Bikes, Cruises Them Home
No doubt, controversial musician, Naira Marley, has an undeniable love for All-Terrain Vehicles (ATV).
The President of the Marlian movement is not known for flaunting exorbitantly pricy cars, especially on social media. Actually, he owns several. He was forced to publicize them during his car-theft allegation saga.
However, when it comes to his Quad bikes, Marley is never humble to publicly showcase them.
Marley owns several ATVs especially the Quad bikes. Severally, he has been spotted on the street cruising on them.
Recently, he acquired two more Quad bikes – at a go – at a popular Kids and Adult automobile toy shop in Lagos. After purchasing from the store, the singer and a companion rode the Quad bikes while being escorted by a security patrol vehicle.

The Quad bike, or simply quad, is an all-terrain vehicle (ATV). It is a kind of motorbike with four large wheels that people ride for fun or in races.
These motorized vehicles travel on four low-pressure tyres. This makes them suitable for travelling on unpaved or rough surfaces.
Quads are intended to be used by a single rider – without a passenger. Their seats are designed to be straddled by the operator, with handlebars for steering control. The rider sits on and operates these vehicles like a motorcycle, but the extra wheels give more stability at slower speeds.
It was first introduced in the 80s by Honda. Although it is a street-legal vehicle in some countries, it is not street-legal within most states, territories, and provinces of Australia, the United States, or Canada.
The ability to go anywhere on terrain that most other vehicles could not cross soon made them popular with US and Canadian hunters, and those just looking for a good trail ride.
Honda entered the business of manufacturing Quad Bikes in the 1980s. The company enjoyed a virtual monopoly in the market, due to effective patents on design and engine placement.
However, other manufacturers of the Quad bikes would later surface. For instance, companies like Yamaha, Kawasaki, Suzuki, etc., paid patent royalties to Honda in order to enter the lucrative ATV field with their own machines.
Some ATVs come as a three-wheeler, four-track, four-wheeler, or quadricycle variant.
