2020 King Quad 500AXi Power Steering SE Camo Suzuki ATV

Key Features

Authentic Wood XD3 Wheels with blacked-out cast aluminum rims and electronic power steering are included. An excellent towing capacity thanks to its independent suspension and a smooth ride on any kind of ground—effective engine braking using QuadmaticTM gearbox with EFI-fed power plant. With the entire LCD instrument panel, LED taillight, and fenders-mounted headlights, you may customize your King Quad with a wide choice of accessories to meet your specific needs.

Engine Features

A four-stroke SOHC single-cylinder engine with a 493cc displacement and a liquid-cooled cooling system is optimized to provide high top-end power with a broad powerband. It’s a low-center-of-gravity design that lowers engine height and seat height. The engine also has a balancer shaft for a more fluid performance. The four-valve head features wide valves and straight inlet ports for maximum efficiency in-cylinder loading. Valves with screw and nut valve lash adjusters are more accessible to service and maintain.

With a lightweight aluminum cylinder coated in SCEM (Suzuki Composite Electrochemical Material), the combustion chamber is very efficient. Throttle responsiveness and fuel economy are enhanced, and power is distributed evenly throughout the rpm range thanks to Suzuki’s Advanced Fuel Injection. It also makes it easier to start the engine under all circumstances. There are no issues with King Quad models complying with US evaporative emissions standards in California, for example (eligible for green sticker registration). An aluminum radiator with a wide diameter, thermostatically-controlled cooling fan ensures a consistent engine operating temperature.

Transmission Features

To switch between low and high gears, the QuadmaticTM CVT-type automatic gearbox utilizes a fender-mounted gate-type shifter. When the throttle is off, the vehicle’s sophisticated engine braking system reduces free-wheeling, which helps keep the vehicle in control on steep descents. Front-wheel drive vehicles with a torque-sensitive limited-slip differential benefit from excellent traction and light steering. When it comes to 4WD traction, nothing beats a differential-lock system. With a gentle press of a button on the handlebar, the driver may easily choose between 2WD, 4WD, and differential-lock 4WD modes. When removing the bike from mud, the standard speed limitation may be overridden using an override button on the left handlebar.

Chassis Features

The new high-clearance fenders protect the rider from flying debris thanks to the bike’s striking, angular design. Oil level checks, gasoline, air filter servicing, etc., were made easier thanks to the body panels’ design. The King Quad’s chassis features thick-wall tubes and strengthened brackets in crucial locations to boost rider comfort, making the ATV more straightforward to ride on any terrain and increase towing capability. A new “under-steer” setting has been included in the vehicle’s essential steering characteristics to save effort and improve turning in tight spaces. It is now possible to utilize handlebars that are taller and more comfortable. With a more powerful electric power steering system than its predecessor, the King Quad’s steering effort is decreased dramatically while also reducing rider discomfort.

Large-diameter gas-charged shock absorbers with five-way spring preload adjustment are part of an independent double A-arm front suspension, including 6.7 inches of travel. Large diameter gas-charged shock absorbers with five-way adjustable spring preload are part of the A-arm/I-beam rear suspension’s 7.7-inch wheel travel. The rider’s shock may be reduced by using a big rear stabilizer bar with spongy bushing. High-friction pads, fluid lines, and a lever ratio work together to deliver the best possible braking performance. The foot brake lever ratio of the sealed, multi-plate rear brake system gives excellent rider control. High longevity, decreased unsprung weight, and inexpensive maintenance is attributed to the rear brake’s clutch-type construction.

The T-shaped seat of Suzuki’s motorcycles provides the rider with more movement in lively or rough terrain. Over rocks and uneven terrain, polyethylene skid plates provide low resistance protection, and half-shaft guards made of rigid plastic keep the blades safe from damage upfront and behind. Carlisle 25-inch tires are fitted on a new lightweight, cast aluminum rims with a distinctive blacked-out surface for increased traction.

Utility / Convenience Features

In the direction you’re guiding the ATV, a 35-watt handlebar-mounted lamp lights the terrain. The King Quad’s unique bodywork has dual 35-watt headlights with high- and low-beam settings. With its low-draw and brilliant LED taillight, the ATV can be easily seen even in the dark.

With the King Quad’s substantial towing capability, a receiver-style trailer hitch installation makes it simple to pick the sort of equipment you wish to haul (up to 1322 pounds). Wire conduit and Winch-ready mounts make installing a winch a cinch. Service reminders based on time or mileage may be set up on the multi-function instrument panel, redesigned for better aesthetics and visibility. LCDs for speedometer, odometer, twin trip meter, hour meter, clock, fuel level, driving range, and drive mode are included in the instrument panel. For example, there are LED indications for high/low, neutral/reverse, 2WD/four-wheel-drive, differential-locked 4WD, and LED warnings for fuel injection and engine temperature.

An 18-amp maintenance-free battery powered by a high-output, three-phase charging system provides enough juice for simple starting and accessory usage. There is a standard 12V auxiliary outlet. The low-center-of-gravity positioning of the 4.6-gallon (17.5-liter) gasoline tank ensures a smooth ride. Vacuum-operated petcock and ratchet-style filler cap are part of the package (which prevents overtightening so it can be easily unscrewed for refilling). The back of the ATV has a spacious 4.0-liter storage compartment, which is positioned next to the current 4.0-liter left-side compartment, allowing for plenty of storage space.

A screw-on lid makes it simple to reach the 2.8-liter water resistant front storage section. For long-lasting durability and scratch resistance, the steel-tube cargo racks have wrinkle paint finishes integrated with elevated footpegs in the floorboards to protect the user’s feet. There is a wide range of Suzuki Genuine Accessories to choose from, including winches, windshields, front and rear bumpers, and a quick-release snow plow, among others.
