2010 Suzuki KingQuad 750AXI EPS Review
The 2WD/4WD/locker selector is located on the right handlebar and operates with a single button for switching between 2WD and 4WD and then a flip of the switch for locking in the front differential.
The battery and the electrical fuses are located under the seat. Unfortunately the battery hold-down blocks the positive battery terminal thus requiring its removal to hook up a battery charger.
At the heart of the KingQuad 750 is the single cylinder, fuel-injected and liquid-cooled, 722cc 4-stroke engine that’s absolutely the smoothest single cylinder engine found in an ATV.
The brakes are a separate-lever, two-brake system, with the front pair of discs operated by the right handlebar lever.
The KingQuad is rated to tow 992 pounds on level terrain and 400 pounds in uneven and difficult conditions.
Power steering is the rage with the utility ATV market and Suzuki uses a very effective version of its automotive EPS.
The unit senses torque loads at both ends of the steering – input from the handlebars and the resistance from the tires.
The belt-drive CVT transmission is a fairly typical unit notable mostly because of its taller-than-normal gearing.
In the rear, the KingQuad uses a unique setup for its arms with lower A-arms and a single upper locator arm.
The thin and rounded tires do more to aggravate the handling than help it, rolling over too much in the corners, and far too easy to puncture by the smallest sticks or rocks.
Climbing on the KingQuad, you’ll find that great, T-shaped seat that’s wide enough at the back to fully pad your posterior while narrowing enough at the front to allow for easy body movement to control the ATV in difficult or fast situations.
Rather than the more typical park position in the transmission, Suzuki has chosen to use the traditional parking brake located on the left front handlebar. We much prefer the parking brake rather than having to use park for those times you need to quickly step off the ATV.
The KingQuad offers selectable 2WD/4WD and also uses a locking front differential for added traction when the going gets tough.
The stock wheels are aluminum and provide a great platform to mount a set of radials with a bit more aggressive tread. This addition alone will make the handling of the new KingQuad so precise that you might actually think you’re on a sport quad.
Although we think the KingQuad looks great, those sporty looks hurt it in the utility department with both the front and rear racks being smaller than optimal for carrying real loads.
The KingQuad seems to have quite a loyal following that enjoy both it’s ultra-smooth operation and it’s reliability. We find it powerful enough to haul us through the deep snow in the highest elevations.
Accessing the air filter is fairly simple, just needing the removal of the seat and then the cover in front of the seat to remove it for cleaning.
