Oct. 14, 2008 By Press Release
Brea, Calif. - October 2, 2008 - At the 2009 Suzuki Dealer Meeting and New Product Introduction in Las Vegas this week, American Suzuki Motor Corporation announced numerous new ATV products, plus a host of improvements and special edition models.

Glenn Hansen, Communications Manager for Suzuki, explained the reasoning behind these decisions. "Suzuki is taking a very serious approach to the marketplace of today and has come up with serious solutions for dealers. The new products and featured improvements are specific for meeting today's needs."

The biggest news for 2009 is the introduction of the KingQuad 500 AXi with electric power steering. Based on the popular KingQuad 450AXi, the new 493cc fuel injected KingQuad 500 features a new cylinder and piston, plus the same award-winning features of its little brother including fuel injection, advanced engine braking and a QuadMatic CVT-type automatic transmission. The 2009 KingQuad 500 will be available in white, limited black brush and camouflage.

The 2009 KingQuad 750 AXi will have two versions - the standard 4x4 and a power steering equipped model. The KingQuad 750 AXi will be available in the same colors as the 500 along with these limited edition models: a Rockstar themed edition (which comes with special Rockstar graphics and winch) and a Black Brush Edition.

The KingQuad 400AS and FS will both be available in special 25th Anniversary Editions commemorating Suzuki's creation of the four-wheeled ATV back in 1983. These units come with a Warn winch as standard equipment, plus a special "First on 4 Wheels" Anniversary badge.

Suzuki Sport Quads for 2009 will also boast upgrades and special editions. The 2009 QuadRacer R450 has a new aluminum seat rail that reduces weight, and is available in yellow plus two special edition models. A black version sports black wheels and a gold frame and a red model also has black wheels but with a black frame.

The completely re-engineered fuel injected QuadSport Z400 will be available in a limited red/black schematic with black wheels.

In the youth line-up, the QuadSport Z50 and QuadSport Z90 ATVs will now be available with pink seats and trim.

Suzuki Motor Corporation will celebrate its Centennial Anniversary in 2009, and Suzuki dealers nationwide will carry a strong mix of targeted high quality motorcycles, scooters and ATVs. Newsletter
