The brand new 2023 Suzuki KingQuad 500AXi Power Steering Quad Bike is extremely helpful in tackling challenging terrains, and its overall review is given below.
2023 Suzuki KingQuad 500AXi Power Steering Quad Bike – Features and Specs
The new 2023 Suzuki KingQuad 500AXi Power Steering Quad Bike features bold, angular styling and an extremely relaxed riding position with low-effort electronic power steering. The quad motorcycle has impressive towing capacity and a fully independent suspension system that helps during off-roading.
The powerful, torque-rich, EFI-fed engine and excellent QuadMatic transmission come standard with an effective engine braking system. The fender, handlebar-mounted headlights, and LED tail light with full LED instrument panel are classic. Our readers know the applicability of cargo racks. That’s why Suzuki has introduced removable cargo rack protectors that help the rider set up KinQuad quickly for any journey.
The new 2023 Suzuki KingQuad 500AXi Power Steering ATV features a powerful 493cc, SOHC, single-cylinder, four-stroke, liquid-cooled engine specially tuned for a broad powerband with strong top-end power. The engine’s head and new cylinder are canted forward for a low center of gravity, thus resulting in low engine height and reduced seat height. Additionally, the engine comes with a balance shaft for smooth operation.
The compact four-valve cylinder head features large valves and straight intake ports for outstanding cylinder charging efficiency. Furthermore, screw and nut valve helps in simplifying overall maintenance.
An all-new lightweight aluminum cylinder features Suzuki Composite Electrochemical Material SCEM coating for better heat transfer and ring sealing, thus resulting in outstanding combustion chamber efficiency. Using the latest Suzuki Fuel Injection helps in better throttle response and fuel efficiency while delivering power consistently across the entire rev range, and it also improves engine starting under all conditions.
The 2023 Suzuki KingQuad 500AXi Power Steering Quad Bike has achieved strict US emission compliance, including California models conforming to the state’s stringent evaporative emissions standard. Furthermore, the high-capacity aluminum radiator including a large diameter, thermostatically-controlled cooling fan gives a stable engine operating temperature.
The new 2023 Suzuki KingQuad 500AXi Power Steering Quad Bike features a QuadMatic CVT-type automatic transmission, offering versatility and convenience with a fender-mounted gate-type shifter for high/low range selection. Its advanced engine-braking system helps reduce free-wheeling with the throttle off and helps control an ATV during descents. The new torque-sensing limited-slip front differential provides potent traction plus light steering. Additionally, a differential-lock system offers 4wd severe traction.
Moreover, the new handlebar-fixed push-button controls permit easy selection between 2WD, 4WD, and new differential-lock 4WD. An all-new override button on the left handlebar can be used to override the ordinary speed limiter when getting out of mud.
The new 2023 Suzuki KingQuad 500AXi Power Steering Quad Bike ensures added rider comfort, making the QuadBike easy to ride on any terrain and increasing towing capacity by using thick-wall tubes and reinforced brackets in key areas.
The base steering features are now tuned to an “under-steer” condition for low effort and firmer turning in tight conditions. It helps in lighter, more comfortable handlebars to be used. The KinQuad’s latest electric power steering system has a higher capacity than the previous model, i.e., 2021 Suzuki KingQuad 500AXi Power Steering, which significantly reduces steering effort and damps vibration and jolts to the rider.
The bold, regular bodywork comes with high-clearance fenders that give higher protection for the rider from flying debris. Furthermore, all-new panels simplify maintenance needs like oil level checks and air filter services. The riders can choose between Suzuki legacy bodywork colors of Flame Red, Terra Green, or Great Blue.
The brand-new independent double A-arm front suspension features a larger diameter, gas-charged shock absorbers with five-way spring preload adjustment. Additionally, fully independent, A-arm/I-beam rear suspension comes with 7.7 inches of wheel travel containing large diameter, gas-charged shock absorbers including five-way spring preload adjustment. There is a large diameter rear stabilizer bar used with compliant bushings that helps in controlling body movement while decreasing shocks to the rider.
The brand-new dual hydraulic front disc brakes combine high-friction brake pad material, new fluid lines, and lever ratio for optimal braking performance. The sealed, multi-plate rear braking system’s foot brake lever ratio offers great rider control. The rear brake’s clutch-type design means outstanding durability, low unsprung weight, and low maintenance.
The 2023 Suzuki KingQuad 500AXi Power Steering Quad Bike features high traction. It has 25-inch Carlisle tires with solid steel wheels and a durable, powder-coated, matte-black finish. The new Suzuki’s plush T-shaped seat delivers rider mobility during spirited or difficult terrain riding. The polyethylene skid plates offer protection with minimal resistance over rocks. The brand-new durable plastic guards protect the rear and front half shafts.
The new 2023 Suzuki KingQuad 500AXi Power Steering Quad Bike features a 35-watt handlebar-mounted headlight that illuminates the trail in the direction the rider is steering the ATV. Additionally, dual 35-watt headlights are part of the KingQuad’s distinctive bodywork. The low-draw and bright LED tail light makes the ATV visible in dark conditions while conserving power.
In addition, a receiver-type trailer hitch mount makes it extremely easy to choose the type of equipment the rider wants to move with the ATV’s massive towing capacity of 1322 pounds. Furthermore, the winch-ready mounts and wire conduit make winch installation simple.
An all-new multi-function instrument panel features improved appearance and visibility and offers ultimate service reminders based on running time or mileage. An all-new and beautiful instrumentation penal features LCD readouts for the odometer, speedometer, twin trip meter, clock, fuel level, and drive mode. There are LED indicators for low, high, reverse, neutral, and differential-locked 4WD and LED cautions for fuel injection and engine temperature. An all-new high-output, three-phase charging system feeds an 18-amp maintenance-free battery, ensuring abundant power for easy starting and accessory use. A sealed 12V accessory outlet is standard in 2023 KingQuad 500AXi Power Steering.
The sizeable 4.6-gallon fuel tank is mounted for a low center of gravity. It features a vacuum-operated petcock and a ratchet-style filler as well. The sizeable 4-liter storage compartment is centrally mounted to the rear of the Quad Bike adjacent to the existing 4-liter left-side compartment, offering excellent cargo capacity. Furthermore, the 2.8-liter water resistant front storage compartment features an easy-access screw-on cap.
Moreover, the rugged front and rear steel-tube cargo racks feature a wrinkle paint finish for reliability and scratch resistance. In addition, the cargo racks have high-impact plastic protectors to shield cargo from wear while improving the quad’s appearance. The protectors are easily removable for attaching Suzuki accessories or other gear directly to the cargo racks. The full floorboards with integrated raised footpets offer excellent protection.
The new 2023 Suzuki KingQuad 500AXi Power Steering Quad Bike has a 12-month limited warranty; however, extended coverage periods with some other benefits are available through Suzuki Extended Protection.
