The ATV, also known as a quad or four-wheeler, is a vehicle that has earned considerable popularity over the years as a result of its versatility and off-road performance. Many companies produce these compact vehicles today, but back in the early 1980s, Suzuki pioneered the segment with its QuadRunner model. Since then, the company has released countless other ATVs, the latest of which is the 2019 Suzuki KingQuad.
The KingQuad has been completely redesigned for 2019 with a variety of upgrades. The four-stroke engine is available in either 722cc for the KingQuad 750AXi or 493cc for the KingQuad 500AXi, and offers increased output. An updated CVT transmission is said to provide smoother power delivery and stronger acceleration.
The suspension now features new gas-charged shocks, and a more powerful electronic power steering unit makes the ATV easier to control. Towing capacity has been increased to 1,322 pounds as a result of a stronger frame and new receiver-type trailer hitch mount. A handlebar-mounted third headlight and LED rear taillight provide improved nighttime visibility. More onboard storage compartments have also been added.
Pricing for the new 2019 Suzuki KingQuad starts at $7,500 for the 500AXi model and $8,800 for the 750AXi. Color choices include black, white, red, green, matte bronze, and True Timber camo.
