While it’s easy to get caught up in the hype and hoopla of the biggest, beefiest and burliest ATVs on the scene, Suzuki reminds that a sub-$5000 entry-level utility model could be just the ticket in these tough economic climes. That said Suzuki is pleased to introduce the addition of the Ozark 250 utility ATV to the 2013 Suzuki lineup. The Ozark 250 joins the previously introduced 2013 KingQuad utility ATV models.
The Ozark 250 offers everything riders are looking for in an entry-level utility ATV. Its sleek styling and entry-level size reflect its versatile capabilities. When it comes to value, the Ozark’s performance and list of standard features launch it to the head of the class.
Powering the Ozark is a 246cc, 4-stroke, single-cylinder, air-cooled, SOHC engine designed to produce abundant mid-range torque. It features a convenient electric start, a semi-automatic clutch mated with a smooth-shifting, wide-ratio 5-speed transmission with super-low first gear and convenient reverse gear that allows the rider to select the best gear position for maximum traction and fuel efficiency. The engine utilizes rubber engine mounts to reduce vibration and specific design features reduce mechanical noise for a quiet and comfortable ride.
The Ozark 250 offers a low 30.9-inch seat height for a comfortable, ergonomic riding position for a wide variety of riders. Together with an impressive 8.3 inches of ground clearance, a towing capacity of 728lbs and lightweight maneuverability, the Ozark 250 delivers it all with class-leading features and a proven, low-maintenance design.
“The Ozark 250 is a versatile entry-level utility ATV”, said Suzuki Senior Communications Manager Steve Bortolamedi. “Whether it’s tackling tough chores on the farm, ranch or job site or riding a rugged trail, the Ozark 250 is the perfect lightweight entry level utility ATV that’s always ready for fun when the work is done.”
The 2013 Ozark 250 will be available in Terra Green and Flame Red and will be available at Suzuki dealerships in fall 2012.
Prices start at $4,499 and more information about the 2013 Suzuki product lines can be found by clicking here.
