With the award-winning features of the KingQuad 750 now you can get all the features of Suzuki's flagship ATV, but in a package that offers the best value in its class.

Suzuki brings all the valuable features to the class: styling, engine performance, electronic fuel injection, independent rear suspension, locking front differential and a host of other valuable features mean the KingQuad 450 leads its class in value and performance.

The KingQuad lineage is important to Suzuki and it is important that the new KingQuad 450 builds on the storied name. When the original KingQuad was introduced to the world in 1991, it was a revolutionary ATV. Revolutionary is a strong word but history has judged it to be true. At a time when solid rear axles were commonplace, Suzuki brought independent rear suspension and a locking front differential to the ATV world. At a time when a five speed transmission was the lap of luxury, KingQuad owners got the most innovative transmission on the market. High, low and super-low ranges gave the original KingQuad owners 15 drive options.

The original KingQuad delivered utility performance with comfortable trail manners. The original KingQuad established Suzuki in the ATV Market. The KingQuad 750 solidified Suzuki's legacy to the industry. Now the KingQuad 450 sets the new standard for a whole class of ATVs.
