Honda was first to announce its 2013 ATV offerings and the relative silence that followed had us fearing the OEMs had thrown away their wall calendars for something a bit more Mayan. However it looks like Suzuki is next up to bat with hopes that the world will keep on keeping on.
American Suzuki has introduced the full line of 2013 KingQuad utility ATV models including an all-new True Timber XD3 Camo option and new 30th anniversary KingQuad 750 AXi, 500 AXi, 400 ASi, 400FSi A TV models made to commemorate 30 years of Suzuki ATVs being “First on 4-Wheels.”
In 1983, Suzuki revolutionized off-roading by introducing the first four-wheeled ATV, the QuadRunner LT125. Since then, Suzuki has continued to be a leader in developing class-leading ATVs that boast advanced Suzuki technology, convenient utility features and unrivaled performance. To celebrate the 30th anniversary of this breakthrough in ATV technology, Suzuki is introducing special edition KingQuad 750AXi Power Steering and KingQuad 500AXi Power Steering models featuring commemorative 30th Anniversary badges and Metallic Matte Royal Red bodywork.
“We are proud to be a true innovator in developing the modern ATV,” said American Suzuki Senior Communications Manager Steve Bortolamedi, “Suzuki redefined off-roading in 1983, becoming ‘First on 4-Wheels’ and we want to celebrate three decades of class-leading Suzuki ATVs with these limited edition 30th Anniversary KingQuad models.”
These special edition 30th anniversary models join Suzuki’s full lineup of 2013 KingQuad ATVs. The KingQuad 750AXi and KingQuad 750AXi Power Steering are Suzuki’s flagship utility ATV models and rugged machines engineered to tackle the toughest jobs and nastiest trails without breaking a sweat. They are loaded with advanced Suzuki technology including fully independent A-arm front suspension and I-beam rear suspension, adjustable shocks, locking front differential, high/low-selectable subtransmission and a 4-stroke, liquid-cooled powerplant with efficient Suzuki fuel injection to give these top-of-the-line KingQuad models impressive all-around performance. Advanced electric power steering makes it convenient and easy for the KingQuad 750AXi Power Steering to tackle the toughest terrain.
The KingQuad 500AXi and KingQuad 500AXi Power Steering are rugged utility ATVs that boast much of the same class-leading features and advanced technology as the KingQuad 750AXi and KingQuad 750AXi Power Steering models. With robust Suzuki fuel-injected 4-stroke, liquid-cooled 493cc engines and lightweight chassis, they are versatile machines designed to deliver exceptional torque and broad power for strong, versatile performance over difficult trails and terrain.
The KingQuad 400ASi and KingQuad 400FSi models feature Suzuki’s advanced ATV technology in a lightweight mid-size utility package that offers excellent handling and strong performance for a wide variety of trails and tasks. The Suzuki fuel injected KingQuad 400FSi and KingQuad 400ASi models are the only utility ATVs in their class available in both manual and automatic transmissions, to suit a wide variety of rider applications and preferences.
In addition to the special edition 30th Anniversary KingQuads, all-new True Timber XD3 Camo bodywork is available on the full range of KingQuad models. The new design provides increased camouflage for hunting and other outdoor activities. Flame Red and Terra Green will be also available color options for the full 2013 KingQuad lineup.
