2012 Suzuki Ozark 250
The Ozark 250 offers everything you’re looking for in a lightweight utility-sport ATV — and more. Its sleek styling reflects its versatile utility-sport capabilities. And when it comes to value, the Ozark’s list of standard features launches it to the head of the class.
Practical. Convenient. Value.
The Suzuki Ozark 250 joins these three simple words together in smart style.
Practical on the farm, convenient with the broad powerband, automatic clutch, and electric start. Delivering good value with a host of practical features, low-maintenance design and an affordable price. An automatic cam-chain tensioner and grease nipple at the universal joint both help reduce maintenance. Independent double-wishbone coil-over dual-shock front suspension and single-shock swingarm rear suspension both deliver a full 140mm of wheel travel.
There’s a large 4-litre storage box under the comfortable, contoured seat and full floorboards with drain holes to help deflect spray and splashes.
