New Features
 
Introducing the 2008 KingQuad 400 series of ATVs, the continuing expansion of the Suzuki KingQuad ATV line. The new KingQuad 400 ATVs replace the award-winning Eiger ATVs, a significant group of Suzuki quads that earned critical praise from ATV media year after year.

Improving these ATVs for the 2008 model year is a challenge for which Suzuki was certainly well prepared. The KingQuad 450 ATVs had established the brand as a reliable and strong sport-utility series popular among ATV owners worldwide. Plus, the original Eiger ATVs had been recognized in the ATV media as best-in-class ATVs, delivering a complete package of features, performance and affordability.

The new KingQuad 400s deliver impressive new styling along with better comfort and convenience features, plus the class-leading performance that has kept these ATVs at the top of the category for years.

For 2008, the KingQuad 400s are easily recognizable as new ATVs and as Suzuki KingQuad family members with exciting new bodywork. Sharply angled, high-clearance fenders, plus the distinctive KingQuad headlights and grille make this easy to recognize as a Suzuki. Further enhancing the look and strengthening the stance is a new front bumper with large-diameter steel tubing. The new bodywork reduces by about four inches the overall length of the KingQuad 400 ATVs, making the machines easier to transport in pickup truck beds and on trailers. In addition ground clearance has been increased from 9.3 inches to 9.8 inches.

This styling update adds even more functional changes, as well, improving the comfort and convenience of the newest KingQuad ATVs. A T-shaped seat – another Suzuki signature feature – is added to the KingQuad 400s, improving comfort for all styles of riding. Shift control is improved as well, with a new gate-type shift lever – the similar to that on larger KingQuads. Located on the left side of the fuel tank, this utility-friendly shift lever allows simple and precise shifting of the automatic transmission from reverse through neutral, high and low ranges.

A new fuel tank – up from15 liters (4.0 gallons) to16 liters (4.2 gallons)– increases the riding range of this KingQuad. The bodywork side covers surrounding the fuel tank have a new shape that reduces the width there, improving rider comfort. Storage capacity and access is improved, too, with a four-liter storage box now located and protected under the seat.

The KingQuad 400s also get new front brake calipers with enlarged piston diameter – up from 32mm to 34mm. Brake pad surface area is enlarged as well to increase braking performance and durability.

Newly designed Maxxis tires feature an aggressive dual-stage tread pattern that delivers consistent traction in wet conditions, plus a quiet and smooth ride on hard-packed trails. The new tires are full-size 25 inchers and are mounted on durable steel wheels.

Proven Features

The KingQuad 400 is available in both semi-automatic five-speed transmission (the KingQuad 400FS) and fully automatic CVT transmission (the KingQuad 400AS) versions. A sub-transmission gives both versions high- and low-range power control, easily selected with the new gate-type shift lever. The automatic KingQuad 400AS also features an advanced engine braking system that reduces free-wheeling to help control speed during steep descents.

Both machines feature selectable four-wheel drive. And a handle-bar mounted control lever lets the operator easily switch into two-wheel drive mode. When in 4WD mode, a torque-sensing limited slip front differential provides maximum traction and light steering effort.

A 376cm3 air-cooled four-stroke engine features a four-valve cylinder head for powerful response and efficient performance. A Keihin 32mm carburetor handles the fuel delivery. And getting power to the wheels is a durable shaft drive system. An oil cooler is mounted high under the front body work, adding cooling support to the vital fluids. Push-button electric start gets the motor running, and a recoil starter is installed as a backup.

The KingQuad 400 ATVs ride on a steel tube chassis featuring independent front suspension and a dual-shock swingarm rear suspension setup. This dual-shock rear end is unique in the category and provides the comfort benefits of fully independent suspension. Wheel travel front and rear is 6.7 inches. This suspension action provides a balance of rock-avoiding ground clearance with low center of gravity.

The engine and chassis are guarded by lightweight and strong plastic skid plates. The plastic is sturdy enough to withstand continuous pounding of rocks and other trail hazards, yet it’s slippery so that these obstacles slide below the machine, without grabbing. The full floorboards feature integrated raised footpegs, plus ample drain holes to vent mud and water.

Both the KingQuad 400FS and AS models feature an analog speedometer, with and odometer and tripmeter helping track travel and maintenance schedules. A fuel gauge is mounted atop the fuel tank for easy viewing.
KingQuad-inspired dual 35W headlights have high and low settings and provide the necessary visibility. A combination taillight and brake light is mounted just below the seat.

Durable cargo racks front and rear provide plenty of working space to add cargo boxes or bags, or all sorts of tools. A four-liter under-seat storage space is protected from the elements. And a trailer hitch mount is standard mounted to the rear end.

To ease winch mounting, a wiring conduit is installed for running winch wires from the sturdy winch mount up front to the below-seat battery. There is also mounting space for a solenoid.

The KingQuad 400FS and 400AS are available in Green, Black (for European market) and Red, and special RealTree Hardwoods HD enhanced camouflage body work is available (in U.S. market).
