Engine Features

There has a broad powerband and high-top end power from the 493cc SOHC single-cylinder, liquid-cooled four-stroke engine. Engine height is lowered because the head and cylinders are canted forward to lower the center of gravity. The engine has a balancer shaft to provide quiet and smooth running. The broad intake valves and straight intake ports of the small four-valve cylinder head provide excellent cylinder charging efficiency. Maintaining valves is made more accessible by using screw and nut lash adjusters. Excellent heat transmission and ring sealing are made possible by the SCEM (Suzuki Composite Electrochemical Material) coating on a lightweight aluminum cylinder. It results in a highly efficient combustion chamber. Advanced Suzuki Fuel Injection enhances throttle responsiveness and fuel economy while delivering power consistently over the whole rev-range and improves engine starting in all weather and driving circumstances.

KingQuad models that meet California’s strict evaporative emissions standards, for example, have no problem meeting US emissions regulations (eligible for green sticker registration). A thermostatically regulated cooling fan atop a high-capacity aluminum radiator keeps the engine running at a constant temperature.

Transmission Features

The QuadmaticTM CVT-type automatic gearbox provides Fender-mounted gate shifters for high/low range selection. When the power is off, the vehicle’s innovative engine braking system helps keep it in control on steep descents. Torque-sensing limited-slip front differential provides powerful traction while maintaining light steering. 4WD traction is significantly improved with a differential-lock system.

It is simple to switch between 2WD, 4WD, and differential-lock 4WD, thanks to handlebar-mounted pushbutton controls. When getting out of the muck, an override button on the left handlebar may be utilized to bypass the standard speed limits.

Chassis Features

Increased rider comfort, simplicity of use, and towing capacity are facilitated by the King Quad’s frame, which has thick-wall tubes and strengthened brackets in essential sections. A new “under-steer” setting has been included in the vehicle’s basic steering characteristics to save effort and improve turning in tight spaces. It is now possible to utilize handlebars that are taller and more comfortable. Power steering on the KingQuad is more powerful and efficient than the previous generation, resulting in less steering effort while decreasing rider fatigue.

High-clearance fenders on the striking, angular bodywork keep the rider safe from flying debris. Oil level checks, gasoline, air filter servicing, etc., are made easier with refined panels.

Large diameter, gas-charged shock absorbers, including five-way spring preload adjustment, are part of an independent double A-arm front suspension (6.7-inch wheel travel). Large diameter, gas-charged shock absorbers having five-way spring preload adjustment are part of a fully independent A-arm/I-beam rear suspension having 7.7 inches of wheel travel. The rider’s shock may be reduced by using a big rear stabilizer bar with a compliant bushing. When it comes to best stopping power, nothing beats the twin hydraulic front disc brakes’ combination of high friction brake pads, fluid lines, and lever ratio.

The foot brake lever ratio of the sealed, multi-plate rear brake system gives excellent rider control. Because of the clutch-type construction, the rear brakes are long-lasting, light, and easy to maintain. Strong steel wheels with a powder-coated matte-black finish hold 25-inch Carlisle tires with excellent grip. While on an emotional or challenging terrain ride, Suzuki’s soft T-shaped seat allows the user to move about quickly. Polyethylene skid plates defend against rocks and rugged terrain while requiring little effort to traverse them. Sturdy plastic shields protect the front and rear half shafts.

Utility Features

Headlights fitted to the handlebars of an ATV illuminate the path in the direction of travel. The King Quad’s unique design has dual 35-watt headlights with high and low settings. With its low-draw and brilliant LED taillight, the ATV is more easily seen and conserves electricity in low-light environments. To make the most of the King Quad’s extensive towing capability, a receiver-type trailer hitch attachment is included (up to 1322 pounds). The installation of a winch is simplified by using mounts and wire conduits that are pre-wired for the device.

Service reminders based on time or mileage may be set up on the multi-function instrument panel, redesigned for better aesthetics and visibility. Speedometer, odometer, trip meter, hour meter, clock, gasoline level and driving range are all shown on the instrument panel’s LCD screen. 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. In every home, there’s a built-in 12V auxiliary outlet. The low-center-of-gravity positioning of the 4.6-gallon (17.5-liter) gasoline tank ensures a smooth ride. Vacuum petcock and ratchet-style filler cap are included (which prevents overtightening so it can be easily unscrewed for refilling).

The back of the ATV has a big 4.0-liter storage compartment, which is positioned next to the current 4.0-liter left-side chamber, allowing for plenty of storage space. A screw-on lid makes it simple to reach the 2.8-liter water resistant front storage section. Wrinkle paint is applied to the steel-tube cargo racks for scratch and abrasion resistance. The high footpegs on the floorboards give additional protection. Suzuki Genuine Accessories include winches, windshields, front and rear bumpers, a quick-release snow plow, metal skid pans, rack extensions, utility boxes and more.
