2019 Suzuki kingQuad 500 Test Review

For 2019, the Suzuki KingQuad 500 has received the most significant round of updates since the addition of power steering in 2009. Complementing updated styling, Suzuki has made a number of changes to the ATVs looking to enhance their overall performance and durability, while seemingly making minimal changes in the production process in their Rome, Georgia facility where the KingQuads are manufactured, helping keep price in check.

The KingQuad 500 delivers all the power most will ever need for work or play. Its engine has all of the power needed to easily reach its towing rating and it delivers good fun out on the trail. The beefed up frame should result in a tougher machine for years or hard work or play. The 500 gets the nod for delivering a small but noticeable improvement in handling predictability and suspension performance while retaining an agile nimble feeling.

In spite of its solid performance the 500 doesn’t have any one feature that really makes it stand out, aside from having one of the most expensive retail prices in its class. However, the KingQuad is built mostly in the USA. It comes with an impressive 1-year warranty, offers years of refinement, and attention to detail that the Japanese manufacturers are known for, all good reason for considering the updated 2019 Suzuki KingQuad 500.
