2012 Suzuki KingQuad 500AXi

Boasting the same advanced technology as the extraordinary KingQuad 750AXi, the new 2012 Suzuki KingQuad 500AXi is engineered to help you cut the work day down to size—or conquer the toughest trails. The 500AXi offers plenty of class-leading features and its fuel-injected 493cc engine gives the 500AXi exceptional performance. Independent front and rear suspension; a QuadMatic™ CVT-type automatic transmission; locking front differential; and a host of other valuable features place the KingQuad 500AXi at the front of the pack.

Built For Tough Conditions

The KingQuad 500’s 493cc, fuel-injected, 4-valve, liquid cooled, SOHC engine produces robust output throughout the rpm range, along with strong top-end power.

The electronic fuel injection system improves throttle response and fuel efficiency, whilst also delivering consistent power and improved starts.

Ready to tame any terrain, the KingQuad 500AXi 4x4 is equipped with a torque-sensing, limited-slip front differential, and a QuadMatic CVT-type automatic transmission which offers versatility and convenience.

A wide range of drive settings maximises power delivery, with the drive mode selector lever allowing riders to select between settings easily and securely.

The advanced engine braking system minimises downhill freewheeling, with the front dual hydraulic disc brakes and rear sealed multidisc braking systems combining to deliver strong and consistent stopping performance.

Independent front and rear suspension helps the KingQuad 500AXi 4x4 absorb bumps and delivers impressive manoeuvrability. Shock absorbers at all four corners of the ATV are adjustable for five preload settings, providing maximum versatility for different loads.

Suzuki’s exclusive T-shaped seat ensures rider comfort all day long, while the KingQuad 500 is also practical, with a tow hitch and sealed 12V accessory outlet and two spacious storage compartments.

The all-new KingQuad 500AXi 4x4 features an easy-to-read LCD digital display with a speedometer, odometer, dual tripmeters, hour meter, clock, fuel gauge and more, allowing riders to track their progress easily and efficiently. It also includes LED indicators to identify fuel injection and engine temperature.

2012 Suzuki KingQuad 500AXi Features and Benefits

Tackle the toughest jobs in no time with the power and performance of a Suzuki Utility ATV. Time for a little fun on the job? With adventure-inspiring ergonomics, powerful engines, and suspension that is ready to climb over just about anything, we’ve got you covered there too.

Key Features
Suzuki fuel injection system, featuring high-performance motorcycle technology, provides excellent throttle response, fuel efficiency and quick engine starts under all operating conditions.

 

Engine Features
A powerful 493cc, SOHC, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled, four-stroke engine was designed for a wide powerband with strong top-end power. Its cylinder is canted forward for a lower center of gravity, reduced engine height and lower seat height. The engine also features a counterbalancer shaft for smooth operation.

The KingQuad 500AXi has a compact 4-valve cylinder head with large intake valves and straight intake ports for increased cylinder charging efficiency. A sportbike-derived chain-and-gear camshaft drive system allows a short/narrow cylinder head design and reduced overall engine height.

A lightweight aluminum cylinder bore is electro-plated with Suzuki's own race proven SCEM (Suzuki Composite Electrochemical Material) for improved heat transfer and tighter piston clearance.

A high capacity aluminum radiator with large diameter cooling fan provides stable engine operating temperature.

 

Transmission Features
The KingQuad 500AXi comes with a QuadMatic™ CVT-type automatic transmission designed for maximum versatility and convenience with a fender-mounted gate-type shifter operation for high/low. Its advanced engine-braking system minimizes free-wheeling with the throttle off and helps control the vehicle during steep descents.

A compact torque-sensing limited-slip front differential offers more powerful traction plus light steering effort. A differential-lock system provides serious four-wheel-drive traction.

A convenient handlebar-mounted push-button controls allow the rider to easily select between 2WD, 4WD and differential-lock 4WD to get the right setting for any traction condition. An Override switch on the left handlebars can be used to override the normal speed limiter when stuck in the mud.

 

Chassis Features
Independent double A-arm front suspension (7.1 inches of wheel travel) includes large diameter shock absorbers with 5-way spring preload adjustment.

Fully independent, A-arm/I-beam rear suspension with long suspension travel (7.9 inches of wheel travel), includes large diameter shock absorbers with 5-way spring preload adjustment and large diameter rear sway-bar.

The KingQuad 500AXi has dual hydraulic front disc brakes. A sealed, multi-plate rear brake system, with a clutch-type design provides high durability, offers reduced unsprung weight, and is low-maintenance.

25-inch tires come mounted on lightweight aluminum-alloy wheels.

Suzuki's innovative and exclusive T-shaped seat with tapered design for rider mobility, plus thick padding for support.

A polyethylene skid plate provides front-to-rear under carriage protection with minimal resistance over rocks and rough terrain. Durable plastic guards protect the front and rear half shafts.

 

Utility/Convenience Features
A winch-ready chassis with flexible tube routing comes standard (for wiring from the winch mounting space to under the seat).

Digital instrumentation includes LCD readouts for speedometer, odometer, twin tripmeters, hour meter, clock, fuel gauge, driving range position and drive mode. LED indicator lamps for high, low, neutral, reverse and drive—2WD/4WD and differential-locked 4WD. LED indicator lamps for fuel injection and engine temperature.

The KingQuad 500AXi offers distinctively-styled 30W multi-reflector halogen headlights, and compact 5/21W tail light and brake light.

A high output magneto generator system and large 18-amp maintenance-free battery provides extra power.

The KingQuad 500AXi comes with a large 4.6 gallon fuel tank, positioned for a low center-of-gravity. It includes a vacuum-operated petcock, ratchet-style fuel cap and convenient bar-type fuel gauge.

A large 2.8 liter water resistant front storage compartment includes new easy-to-open/close screw-on cap.

The KingQuad 500AXi comes with rugged steel-tube racks with wrinkle paint finish for increased durability and scratch resistance.
