KingQuad 400 FS / KingQuad 400 AS / KingQuad 750
Delivering the Complete Package
The very first Suzuki KingQuad became famous for

available. The 1991 model lead the way for
future Suzuki ATVs – and now for a growing
family of Suzuki KingQuad ATVs.
25th anniversary of Suzuki ATVs
“First on 4 Wheels” is more than just a slogan
for Suzuki, it’s a fact. And 2008 will mark the
25th anniversary of the milestone – Suzuki’s
invention of the four-wheeled ATV. The 1983
Suzuki QuadRunner 125 gave birth to an industry.
As the first four-wheeled ATV, the Suzuki LT-125
set in motion a history of innovation that only
a manufacturer like Suzuki could deliver.
The 1983 Suzuki LT-125 delivered the utility
function that other machines couldn’t, and it
did so with the reliability, durability and
power that only Suzuki could provide. This new
quad featured reverse gear, an auto-clutch
five-speed transmission, an odometer, an
accessory power plug and a sealed rear brake.
Suzuki continued to bring innovation to the new
ATV industry throughout the 80s, leading the way
for an industry that – 25 years later – is
bigger than anyone could have imagined.
The KingQuad name returned to the Suzuki stable

top-of-the-line utility machine, along with
Suzuki performance and a competitive price.
This was the first ATV to deliver Suzuki fuel
injection to the ATV world. Famous for helping
deliver countless championships in motorcycle
road racing competition, Suzuki fuel injection
is recognized for delivering horsepower with

ATV, this flagship delivered fully independent
suspension, aluminum wheels, a sealed oil-bathed
multi-disc brake system and Suzuki’s exclusive
T-shaped seat for comfort. Along with fuel
injection, the single-cylinder engine had a
dual-overhead-cam head, and the engine was
canted forward 48 degrees for optimum placement
in the chassis.
As proof of success, the 2005 KingQuad earned
more ATV of the Year honors in its debut year
than any other ATV. Clearly, the KingQuad
formula – build cutting edge ATVs upon a base of
Suzuki performance and durability – had the
makings of a powerful success story. It also
ushered in the new KingQuad family, including
the 2007 KingQuad 450. This new ATV was the
first fuel-injected 4x4 in the popular
450cc-class, and it delivered most of the
features of the KingQuad 700 at a more moderate
For 2008, two new quads are being introduced –
the KingQuad 400 and the KingQuad 750AXi. The
following pages will expand upon the highlights.
There have also been some changes on the award
winning KingQuad 450. For the 2008 450AXi as
well as the 750AXi, you will find a fully
independent suspension system with five preload
settings, offering a smoother ride, better
stability and performance.
