For those who haven’t been keeping up to date with Tesla, the Cyberquad is basically an all-electric quad bike unveiled in November 2019 at the Cybertruck press event in Hawthorne, California. There are no power numbers, but Elon Musk did say that it will come at first as an option for the Cybertruck. Inventors Rich Benoit and Steven Salowsky didn’t want to wait the 1+ years for the official release, so they built their own. Read more for a video and additional information.
The build started with a 2008 Yamaha Raptor 700 purchased from Facebook Marketplace for a mere $3,000. Next, they removed that engine and replaced it with one from an electric motorcycle before adding a winch. What did they end up with? A DIY Cyberquad that can accelerate from 0-60 mph in 4.2 seconds with all-terrain tires, 3.9 seconds with street tires, and top out at 102 mph.

It started out as origami to create a sense of scale to the pieces, and then Rich had wired the bike up with its new zero motor powertrain and welded the new drive unit to the rear, and Steven restructured a new aluminum trestle frame onto the existing quad frame, and then formed and cut the new body,” said the team to Electrek.
