KINGQUAD 500 4x4 AUTO POWER STEER 2018

BUILT FOR TOUGH CONDITIONS

You sometimes need the ultimate grunt from your quad, but mostly it’s an everyday all-round gutsy farm companion. Here’s where the KingQuad 500 comes into its own.  You get all the advances of the flagship ATV – the KingQuad 750 – but in a package that offers the best value in its class.
The KingQuad 500 boasts the same aggressive new styling, fuel-injected performance, push-button 2WD/4WD select, front disc brakes and sealed oil-bathed multi-disc rear brakes for extra stopping power.

Overall handling is made easier and the ride made more comfortable and stable with independent front and rear suspension.  Plus the ‘torque-sensing’ limited slip front differential provides maximum traction and light steering in tight turns.

All this adds up to a bike that doesn’t just lead the mid-sized class but a bike that’s going to carry the KingQuad lineage to new heights.

Comfort, control, power and convenience - all in the KINGQUAD style.
