Video: The Lazareth LM 847 Is A Runner

09/09/2016 @ 3:18 pm, by Jensen Beeler19 COMMENTS


We have never seen something quite like the Lazareth LM 847, a Maserati-powered leaning four-wheeler that was imagined by some of the craziest minds in France right now.

Making a modest 470hp from its 4.7-liter V8 engine, and tipping the scales are roughly 880 lbs, as you can imagine, there is a lot going on with this unique machine.

Interestingly enough though, there seems to be a strong future for machines like the Lazareth LM 847, with HondaKawasaki, and Yamaha also looking at leaning multi-wheel vehicles.

We doubt that the Japanese brands will produce something as ostentatious as Lazareth did here, but that’s part of what makes the LM 847 so intriguing…isn’t it?

    Can’t wait to see Quentin flat track it at the next Dirt Quake!

    That was a bit of a let down he didn’t get it above idle ….yaaaawn all that grunt and and rode it like my nanna

    What’s funny is that it’s only 30 lbs. heavier than Harley’s latest Street Glide bagger if Cycle World is to be believed (CW quoted 851 lbs with the new dual-cooled engine).

    This is a fun construction, but it’s sort of been done before. Google “Dodge Tomahawk”. I actually touched that machine which was on display at the Petersen Museum. I don’t think the Tomahawk leaned though…

    It’s a start, but why the giant motor? (I know the answer) Still it’s fun to look at and imagine a proper motorcycle with four wheels close together and highly functional. Double the rubber on the asphalt has to be a good thing. Just cut half the motor off.

    Not intriguing. They ripped off various Italian bikes. Four motorcycle tires, those are going to be expensive to replace…

  • ‘Mike Smith

    You beat me to the Tomahawk. The biggest difference being weight, as the Dodge was 1,500lbs.

  • Dustin Nisbet-Jones

    Oh shucks and just think of the extra expense in washing soap to clean twice as many wheels. Gosh golly.

  • John C

    pretty nutz. and what dezi sayz, would love to hear this screaming.

  • MikeD

    WRETCHED EXCESS……..right up my alley. LOL. But like FZrider said, maybe half the engine wouldn’t be a bad start for most of us, hehehe.

  • Gary

    I dig it but you know everyone’s going to complain about the heat. I wonder what the max lean angle is.

  • n/a

    Yup, and the extra chain and sprockets…

    Very strong resemblance to the Dodge Tomahawk. Not a bad thing, Dodge has done nothing with that concept in 10+ years (not that were ever going to, but one can always dream).

    The Tomahawk even leaned like this vehicle, it’s the only way you can easily turn a vehicle with such a short distance between the wheels:

    4.7 liters run off what looks like 1.2 gallons? 4 wheels? no thanks

  • paganmachine

    4 wheels do not make a motorcycle.

    Made in France? So since Paris is banning motorcycles you’ll ride it…where?

  • Good riding in the South of France, there is.

  • KYspeaks

    You could probably go a whole 5 miles between refills!

    bikes cool, but pulling up to a cafe and getting look at your bike during lunch is awsome
