Suzuki took all the award-winning features of its KingQuad 700 and brought them to the 450 utility/sport class. And it expands the KingQuad brand to a broader range of users, and at an unmatched value.

When the original KingQuad was introduced to the world in 1991, it was a revolutionary ATV. At a time when solid rear axles were commonplace, Suzuki brought independent rear suspension and a locking front differential system to the ATV world. At a time when a five-speed transmission was the lap of luxury, the KingQuad owners got the most innovative transmission on the market. High, low and super-low ranges gave owners 35 drive gear options. It also delivered utility performance with features never before seen on an ATV.

The original KingQuad established Suzuki’s legacy in the ATV market. Now, the 2007 Suzuki KingQuad 450 sets the new standard for a whole class of ATVs.

Power is supplied by a single-cylinder engine with four valves, taking all its cues from its big brother, the KingQuad 700. With a bore x stroke of 84mm x 82mm, this 454cc engine offers superb low-end power for days spent working hard, and also has the top-end power for days spent enjoying the trail. The cylinder is pitched forward at a 48-degree angle to keep the low center of gravity for superior trail performance.

The engine is fed by Suzuki Fuel Injection technology, using a 35mm throttle body with a multi-hole injector.

Using two three-dimensional fuel maps, the fuel injection system tracks all the critical adjustments to create useful fuel/air ratio for any riding conditions. A straight intake tract means that air has no obstruction getting from the large capacity airbox to the throttle body for better throttle response.

Ride quality is suitable for a king, too, thanks to this ATV’s fully independent front and rear suspension. In the front, fully independent and adjustable double wishbone suspension sets the machine up to absorb obstacles on the trail. A generous 7.1 inches of front wheel travel contributes to easy maneuverability. And the new KingQuad 450 features a full 8.1 inches of rear wheel travel, thanks to the independent double wishbone rear suspension setup, which provides superior absorption of obstacles. A sway bar connects the right and left lower arms for added riding comfort and traction control. Both the front and rear suspension have five-way spring preload adjustments, ensuring maximum tire contact. It’s the same chassis proven strong and supportive on the award-winning Suzuki KingQuad 700.

The Suzuki KingQuad 450 delivers award-winning features of a premium-class ATV in a value-filled package – expanding the KingQuad legacy to a wide range of buyers.
