The KingQuad can hold up to 198
pounds between both the front and rear
cargo racks. They are metal and are
designed with tie-down points.
with two shock absorbers that have
6. 7 inches of travel as well. The suspension seems to be sprung tightly,
so it is no race machine, but in the
trails and crawling over rocks, it has a
smooth ride. We feel that if the Suzuki
came with independent suspension
in the rear, the ride would be even
The steering of the 400ASi is tight.
Even in 4x2, the bars do not saw
side to side with ease, and when
you engage 4x4, it gets a bit tough-
er to manage. Going down a steep
rocky section in low gear and 4x4,
the bars of the KingQuad try to fight
against the terrain. On smooth roads
or around the farm, the steering never
bothered us. The ASi comes with
tubeless tires. The fronts are sized
25x8-12, while the rears are 25x10-
12. They provide decent traction for
most types of terrain. To help slow
the machine, the KingQuad comes
with a hydraulic disc brake on each
front corner and a drum brake on the
rear axle. The back brake can be a
little touchy and cause the machine to
slide easily, but it’s very controllable.
The Suzuki does handle water and
mud quite well. The 4x4 system will
dig through the soft stuff with ease,
and the design of the fenders on the
KingQuad helped keep the mud off
of our test riders. The seating and
riding position on the machine is very
comfortable, even for taller riders.
The seat has a nice layer of cushion
for long rides, and the handlebars
are tall. We never felt cramped on the
400ASi, and that is a big plus.
The Suzuki KingQuad 400ASi is a
utility ATV at a great price point. If
you don’t plan to be pulling a lot of
weight but need a quad that can get
you around the job site or farm with
tools and equipment loaded onto the
The rear swingarm may not be as comfortable as independent suspension, but the
KingQuad has no trouble climbing through rough trails.
The switch to engage the Suzuki’s 4x4 system is mounted on the handlebars.
They also have an instrument gauge that shows speed, trip meter, what gear the
machine is in and more.
