FOLLOWING TWO-AND-A-HALF years of testing and development, the Blaney Motor Company has launched the Trooper quad bike.

Fitted with indicators, brake lights and wing mirrors, the machine complies with EU homologation regulations, making it fully road legal.

Farmers with plenty of travelling to do between sites are prime targets for the bike, says the company.

With a 200cc petrol engine, the Blaney Trooper produces 17hp and is capable of speeds up to 50mph (80kph). Prices start from 2126.
