a small list of big changes
The Kingquad has remained untouched for several years now but with the 2019 model, Suzuki unleashed its creative energy, bringing the King up to speed.
We can’t list all the changes in detail – that would require pages – but here’s a summary of the most significant ones.
New guard-and handlebar-mounted lights, and new low-draw LED taillight. New LED dash is easier to read and includes service reminders.
High-capacity, large diameter aluminium radiator.
New steel frame, with thicker frame tubes and redesigned brackets. Gas shocks replace oil units. With a stronger frame comes a bigger tow rating, now 600kg.
The base steering characteristics are now tuned to an under-steer condition for reduced effort and tighter turning. This also allows fitment of higher, more comfortable handlebars.
Redesigned plastic panels simplify maintenance, such as oil level checks and fuel and air filter servicing. The dual hydraulic front disc brakes have new brake pad material, fluid lines and brake lever.
25-inch (635mm) Carlisle tyres are mounted on strong steel wheels with a durable, powder-coated matte-black finish. The new 35W handlebar-mounted headlight illuminates the trail in the direction you’re steering.
Winch-ready mounts and wire conduit for quick winch installation.
New, redesigned, multi-function instrument panel with readouts for speedometer, odometer, twin tripmeter, hour meter, clock, fuel level, driving range and drive mode. LED indicators for high, low, neutral, reverse and 2WD/4WD and differential-locked 4WD. LED cautions for fuel injection and engine temperature.
A new, four litre storage compartment is centrally added at the rear of the ATV.
Steel-tube cargo racks with wrinkle paint finish for durability and scratch resistance.
