Few thrills compare to rumbling over snapped logs and felled trees on a four-wheeler. It's an even greater experience when your ATV has the power to motor up hills and slide around corners with precision. The Suzuki Quadrunner 250 4x4 costs a hefty £3,185, but one mudslinging trek through the woods may just instil confidence in your purchase.
The Suzuki 250 Quadrunner has a standard five-speed transmission and also includes a three-speed subtransmission that shifts between high, low and super low. Complementing the multiple transmissions are three drive modes: two-wheel drive, four-wheel drive, and four-wheel drive with front differential lock. The clutch is automatic.
Engine and Starter
Driving the Suzuki 250 is a four-stroke, one-cylinder engine with high torque. The 4x4 features an electronic starter with a backup recoil starter and Suzuki PEI ignition. To combat potential breakdowns caused by dirt, the air intake system is mounted high on the 4x4. The carburettor is a Mikuni BSR.
Build and Support
The 250's rugged frame sports front and rear cargo racks complete with a large cargo box. Keeping the 4x4 in control are front and rear shocks, diagonal swing axle rear suspension, double A-arm front suspension, hydraulic drum front brakes and mechanical drum rear brakes. Two mounted 30-watt headlights guide the way while an oversized padded seat keeps you safe and comfortable.
