Mojo Motorcycles Pty Ltd., the Australian distributor for CFMOTO, has released a new 400cc quad bike that complies with stage 2 of the Australian Government mandatory Consumer Goods (Quad Bike) Safety Standard.
The Australian Government announced the introduction of the Consumer Goods (Quad Bike) Safety Standard in October 2019. This standard is being introduced over two stages. The requirements under stage 1 must be met by October 11th 2020, and the requirements under stage 2 by October 11th 2021.
CONSUMER GOODS (QUAD BIKE) SAFETY STANDARD
The mandatory legislation that applies to all new ‘general-use’ quad bike models sold in Australia is outlined below:
STAGE 1 (by October 11th 2020)
– All quad bikes must meet the specified requirements of the US quad bike Standard ANSI/SVIA 1-2017 or the EN 15997:2011 Standard.
– All quad bikes must be tested for static stability using a tilt table test and display the angle at which it tips on to two wheels on a hang tag at the point of sale.
– All quad bikes must have a durable label affixed, visible and legible when the quad bike is in operation, alerting the operator to the risk of rollover and must include rollover safety information in the owner’s manual.
STAGE 2 (by October 11th 2021)
– All general-use model quad bikes must be fitted with, or have integrated into the design an operator protection device.
– All general-use model quad bikes must meet the minimum stability requirements of:
– Lateral stability – a minimum TTR of 0.55 (28.81 degrees)
– Front and rear longitudinal pitch stability – a minimum TTR of 0.8 (38.65 degrees)
