2019 ATV OF THE YEAR
SUZUKI KING QUAD 750
The inventors of the modern ATV have finally given a facelift to the Kingquad 750. After more than a decade of minor upgrades, the King just wasn’t the King anymore. Don’t get me wrong here, the Kingquad has always been an extremely reliable ATV with decent performance but it was, alas, cruelly outdated compared to its competition.
The King is now BACK with a vengeance to claim his throne. Better frame, double the towing capacity, engine performance and throttle response is much improved, better CVT calibration and finally a much more powerful power steering motor. The best mechanical upgrade is the suspension! Finally, a setup worthy of the Suzuki name! It handles brilliantly with perfectly calibrated gas shocks with dual rate coil springs that are well matched for a near-perfect setup, right out of the crate.
The icing on the cake is the updated bodywork and the return of the handlebar-mounted headlight. Suzuki hit a home run on the looks without going into weirdness. It looks modern but still reminiscent of the classic Suzuki ATV. Subtle and radical at the same time. We like it very much.
All of our staff has had seat time on three different units and none of us scored it negatively compared to the old model and the other 700 cc class single cylinder ATVs on the market. That is saying a lot here! The King is back, he can now compete against his brethren and win!
Good job Suzuki and well-deserved nods of approval from all of us!
