2015 Suzuki KingQuad 750AXi

Good news for utility-sport ATV fans: Suzuki has announced the return of its KingQuad 750AXi, KingQuad 400ASi and 400FSi models for 2015, each returning with updates to address power character, fuel economy, and easier cold starting among other items.

KingQuad 750AXi
In the power department, the KingQuad 750AXi now has a newly designed twin-spark-plug cylinder head for improved combustion and a more robust power feel. New multi-hole fuel injectors deliver a finer injection spray for better fuel atomization. The injectors, combined with new projection-type spark plugs, should improve the KingQuadís cold-engine starting manners.

Other changes aimed toward enhancing the KingQuad 750AXiís power character include revised intake and exhaust cam profiles. At the same time, Suzuki engineers also upgraded the exhaust system for cleaner emissions. The end result of these revisions, says Suzuki, is that the KingQuad 750AXiís engine delivers smoother operation throughout the rev range, along with crisper throttle response and stronger mid-range and top-end pull while also reducing fuel consumption by up to 10 percent.
The KingQuad 750AXi is available with electric Power Steering in Red or Green color schemes for $9,499, with the optional True Timber XD3 Camo version available for $9,999. Non-power steering versions are available for $8,899 in Red or Green and $9,299 in True Timber XD3 Camo.

Improvements to the 2015 Suzuki KingQuad 400ASi and FSi include a new ECU with Slip-Control Logic technology for improved traction and grip. Both 400cc KingQuads also receive iridium spark which, Suzuki claims, are more efficient, promoting more complete combustion and reduced emissions. The inner structure of the exhaust muffler has also been redesigned to shape the power character by improving low-to-mid rpm power, and all of these updates result in a claimed improvement in fuel economyóup to 15 percent for the ASi and 17 percent for the FSi. The improvements also help both the 750cc and 400cc KingQuad engines meet EPA emissions regulations.

The KingQuad 400ASi, which uses Suzukiís QuadMatic full automatic continuously variable transmission, is available in Red or Green bodywork for $6,499, and in the True Timber XD3 Camo version for $6,899. The KingQuad 400FSi features a five-speed transmission with semi-automatic clutch and is available in Red or Green bodywork for $6,499, and in a True Timber XD3 Camo version at a retail price of $6,899.

Suzuki continues to do its part to grow the sport by addressing the needs of young ATV riders (aged 12 and older) with the return of the Suzuki QuadSport Z90. The Z90 is powered by a four-stroke engine and drives the rear wheels through an automatic transmission. The Z90 also features a hassle-free electric starter with a recoil starter included for back-up. Suzuki says that the Z90ís 1.6-gallon fuel tank will take it a long way between stops for fuel, maximizing rider enjoyment.

Full floorboards on the QuadSport Z90 a secure platform for their feet, and Suzukiís signature T-shaped seat is designed for the right blend of comfort and freedom of movement for active riding. Independent front suspension and a single-shock rear suspension provide ample wheel travel and a sporty ride. In keeping with its reliable, low-maintenance charm, the Z90 is equipped with drum brakes and shaft drive. Parents and adult supervisors will appreciate the QuadSport Z90ís screw-type throttle limiter, which affords graduated learning for new riders. 

The QuadSport Z90 is available in White only. MSRP has been set at $2,899.

Manufacturing Shift
Along with the announcement of these 2015 ATVs, Suzuki Manufacturing of America corporation (SMAC) and Suzuki Motor of America, Inc. (SMAI) have announced that the SMAC ATV assembly facility in Rome, Georgia, have begin assembling engines for all Suzuki KingQuad ATVs beginning as of June. Suzuki Motor Corporation in Japan is transferring the Suzuki ATV engine assembly work to SMAC to better serve the growing global market, including Suzuki dealers in America and 52 countries around the world. ATV engine assembly will be phased in over a three-month period, starting with 400cc engines in June, followed by 750cc engines in July and 500cc engines in August. This production shift represents a substantial investment of more than $1 million in new equipment or equipment transfer from Japan, according to Suzuki.
