The QuadMatic Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) uses a durable V-belt and centrifugal clutch to ensure a smooth ride regardless of speed and terrain. What’s more the Suzuki advanced engine-braking system helps to minimize freewheel during descents – giving the rider maximum control at all times.
The Suzuki KingQuad 500, also features an innovative torque-sensing differential with three modes – 2WD, 4WD or differential-locked 4WD – easily selected with a handlebar-mounted button, providing the set-ups to tackle a range of environments and conditions.
The famous Suzuki KingQuad 500 fully independent suspension system is also included to deliver superior ride comfort and versatile handling performance to make the KingQuad 500 the perfect all-round economical package.
With plenty of power and precise handling the Suzuki KingQuad 500 ensures your daily route is anything but routine. When things get serious, the 4-wheel drive, fully independent suspension and advanced engine braking system will overcome the sinking feeling in your stomach on the way up and down misconceiving slopes. The power steering model is perfectly suited to long stretches in the seat or regular riding on bumpy terrain, whilst the standard model is a smart choice for those with less extreme demands, but equal needs for the rest of the great features.
Whichever model you choose, you can rely on the KingQuad 500 to toil long before and past a nine-to-five.
