Suzuki fuel-injection system features a 36mm throttle body and 12-hole injector that delivers the fuel/air mix in an efficient fine-mist spray pattern
Engine Control Unit uses a 16-bit CPU and a 96-kilobyte ROM unit. The system is programmed to obtain improved traction by selecting the optimum injection volume, injection timing and ignition timing based on throttle position, engine rpm, and other data monitored
Front track is widened by 25mm to improve overall handling stability feel
Styling reflects the powerful attitude of the QuadRacer R450, including the sharp fenders, the overall slim design and the removable headlight
The chassis’s rigidity balance is changed to improve handling stability, chassis strength and overall performance, particularly in rough terrain
The footpegs are now 46mm wide – same as the QuadRacer R450
The 2012 Suzuki QuadSport Z400 is engineered for high-performance off-road four-wheeling with smooth power-output and throttle response from Suzuki fuel injection
