Once we determined that the KingQuad was indeed unstoppable as a workhorse, we spent all of five minutes removing tools and headed to the trails for some play. The Suzuki honestly shocked me after seeing what it was capable of in the purely utilitarian setting, but what it could do while playing was nothing short of amazing.
The Yoshimura exhaust brought the KingQuad to life and helped confirm what I was already kind of suspecting: The KingQuad is a 722cc sport quad hidden under big racks and fancy controls. To say the machine was equally up to the task of play as it was work would be an understatement. The Yoshimura-equipped Suzuki absolutely rips, and any doubts I may have had about the MXU tire went out the window as soon as we hit the trails. The Goldspeed MXU has enough traction to make high-speed trail navigation a blast, and the sidewalls allow you to pitch the big Suzuki sideways at will, without fear of the tire rolling over. Suzuki's stock shocks are plusher than I hoped for and from a performance standpoint leave nothing to be desired. As a whole, my QuadBoss KingQuad is surprisingly comfortable at fast-paced trail riding and feels right at home while at play. It was honestly hard to believe this machine that was jumping and sliding like a sport quad was the same machine that was mowing a complete mountainside just hours earlier.
As a complete package, this QuadBoss Suzuki KingQuad 750AXi is the perfect option for anyone searching for a way to have their cake while eating it too. Work and play no longer require two separate machines.
