Suzuki recently launched four new models into their KingQuad range. Peter Thomas Keaveney reports.
Suzuki launched its first ATV, the QuadRunner, back in 1983. The company has recently announced the launch of four new KingQuad ATVs.
This includes the KingQuad 750 and KingQuad 500 power-steering models and the 750 and 500 non-power-steering models. The new ATVs see both engine and chassis upgrades, in addition to new features and styling.
The chassis upgrades mean all three models can tow an impressive 600kg, an increase of 33% from the previous models.
The range is fitted with a multi-function instrument panel
The new range also sees new front suspension, a new steering system, a new power-steering system and a new rear stabiliser.
Major refinements and changes have been made to the engine unit, which is manufactured by Suzuki itself. Other new features include a handlebar-mounted headlight and additional storage compartments.
The range is fitted with a multi-function instrument panel.
One nice feature is a service reminder icon. Suzuki also noted that the re-design of some body parts has made some components such as the fuel filter easier to access.
These ATVs have an automatic variable ratio transmission and are available in a range of colours. List prices including VAT:
KingQuad 500 non-power steering: €9,999.
KingQuad 500 power steering: €10,699.
