Engine Features

- The powerful 493cm³, SOHC, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled, 4-stroke engine is tuned to produce a wide powerband with strong top-end power.

- The cylinder head and cylinder are canted forward for a low center of gravity, resulting in reduced engine height and lower seat height. The engine also features a balancer shaft for smooth operation.

- The compact 4-valve cylinder head has large intake valves and straight intake ports for superb cylinder charging efficiency. Screw and nut valve lash adjuster simplify maintenance.

- Lightweight aluminum cylinder uses SCEM (Suzuki Composite Electrochemical Material) coating for excellent heat transfer and ring sealing, resulting in superb combustion chamber efficiency.

- Advanced Suzuki fuel injection improves throttle response and fuel efficiency while delivering power consistently across the full rev-range. It also improves engine starting in all conditions.

- The KingQuad achieves US emissions compliance, including California models that conform to the state's stringent evaporative emissions standard (eligible for green sticker registration).

- High-capacity aluminum radiator with large diameter, thermostatically-controlled cooling fan provides stable engine operating temperature.

- The QuadMatic™ CVT-type automatic transmission provides versatility and convenience with a fender-mounted gate-type shifter for high/low range selection. Its advanced engine-braking system minimizes free-wheeling with the throttle off and helps control the vehicle during steep descents.

- A compact torque-sensing limited-slip front differential offers potent traction plus light steering. A differential-lock system provides serious 4WD traction.

- Handlebar-mounted push-button controls permit easy selection between 2WD, 4WD, and differential-lock 4WD. An override button on the left handlebar can be used to override the normal speed limiter when getting out of mud.

Chassis Features

- The bold, angular bodywork features high-clearance fenders that offer great protection for the rider from flying debris. The body panels were designed to simplify maintenance needs, such as oil level checks and fuel and air filter service.

- To increase rider comfort, make the ATV easier to ride on any terrain, and increase towing capacity, the KingQuad's frame has thick-wall tubes and reinforced brackets in key areas.

- The base steering characteristics are now tuned to an "under-steer" condition for reduced effort and tighter turning in tight conditions. This permits the use of higher, more comfortable handlebars.

- The KingQuad's advanced electric power steering system significantly reduces steering effort and damps vibration and jolts to the rider.

- Independent double A-arm front suspension (172mm of wheel travel) includes large diameter, gas-charged shock absorbers with 5-way spring preload adjustment.

- Fully independent, A-arm/I-beam rear suspension with 194mm of wheel travel includes large diameter, gas-charged shock absorbers with 5-way spring preload adjustment.

- A large diameter rear stabilizer bar with compliant bushings helps control body movement while reducing shocks to the rider.

- The dual hydraulic front disc brakes combine high-friction brake pad material, fluid lines, and a lever ratio to provide optimal braking performance.

- The sealed, multi-plate rear brake system's foot brake lever ratio provides great rider control. The rear brake's clutch-type design means high durability, reduced unsprung weight, and low maintenance.

- Suzuki's plush T-shaped seat provides you with greater mobility during spirited or difficult terrain riding.

- Polyethylene skid plates provide protection with minimal resistance over rocks and rough terrain. Durable plastic guards protect the front and rear half shafts.

- High traction 25-inch Carlisle tires with aggressive tread offers consistent traction in wet conditions, yet has a quiet, smooth ride on hard-packed trails.

- Stylish lightweight, cast aluminum wheels are powder-coated black with machined spoke and rim edges. (Standard equipment only on the KingQuad 500AXi Power Steering Special Edition.)

Utility/Convenience Features

- The 35-watt handlebar-mounted headlight illuminates the trail in the direction you are steering the ATV. Dual 35-watt headlights (with high and low settings) are part of the KingQuad's distinctive bodywork.

- The low-draw and bright LED tail light helps make the ATV visible in dark conditions while conserving power.

- A receiver-type trailer hitch mount makes it easy to select the type of equipment you want to move with the KingQuad's generous towing capacity (up to 600kg).

- Winch-ready mounts and wire conduit make winch installation simple.

- The multi-function instrument panel has improved appearance and visibility and provides service reminders based on running time or mileage. The instrumentation includes LCD readouts for speedometer, odometer, twin trip meter, hour meter, clock, fuel level, driving range, and drive mode. There are LED indicators for high, low, neutral, reverse, 2WD/4WD, and differential-locked 4WD and LED cautions for fuel injection and engine temperature.

- High-output, three-phase charging system feeds an 18-amp maintenance-free battery for abundant power for easy starting and accessory use. A sealed 12V accessory outlet is standard.

- The large 17.5 L fuel tank is positioned for a low center of gravity. It includes a vacuum-operated petcock and a ratchet-style filler cap (which prevents overtightening so it can be easily unscrewed for refilling).

- A large 4.0L storage compartment is centrally located to the rear of the ATV adjacent to the existing 4.0L left-side compartment, providing generous cargo capacity. The 2.8L water-resistant front storage compartment includes an easy access screw-on cap.

- The rugged steel-tube cargo racks have wrinkle paint finish for durability and scratch resistance.

- Full floorboards with integrated raised footpegs provide protection.
