The farming sector is very important to Suzuki, says the company.

In fact, it was right here on a New Zealand farm that the Coleman family and Suzuki created the first ever 4-wheel ATV.

Suzuki branded ATVs are recognised for their ruggedness and reliability, and their ability to handle the demanding conditions of New Zealand’s high-country farms.

Suzuki says its motorcycle and ATV dealer network operates across the country, with sales and service representation available almost anywhere in the country you may be. 

Suzuki’s ATV range includes the KingQuad 400, which was extensively tested and refined on New Zealand farms and is equipped with an economical fuel-injected 376cc motor.

A step up to the KingQuad 500 range delivers extra power and towing capacity along with a simple, low maintenance automatic transmission and optional power steering.

Top of the range is the mighty KingQuad750, which features a sealed and water proof LCD digital instrumentation including speedometer, odometer, trip meter, clock and fuel gauge.

With long travel anti-roll suspension, independent rear end and a low centre of gravity, the KingQuad provides power and strength, and combines all-day comfort with a stable ride.

In addition to the ATV range, Suzuki markets the top-selling two-wheel farm bike, the DR200SE Trojan. This variant was designed in New Zealand, for New Zealand farms.

Being one of the few made in Japan farm bikes on the market, the Trojan enjoys an unmatched reputation for reliability and durability, along with low initial cost and miserly running costs.

In tune with the times, Suzuki offers a “shop from home” facility on its website,

Farmers have the ability to contact dealers, book test rides, and obtain finance quotes and applications, without having to leave the farm. In this way, the brand says it truly brings the field fays to the farms.

While the stranglehold of ATV’s on the off-road market has been tempered by the arrival of side by sides or UTV’s, the sector is still strong, particularly on narrow tracks or areas of difficult terrain.

Bigfoot comes up trumps

Call them what you will, but UTVs, or side-by-sides, have certainly found a place in much of New Zealand’s rural sector.

No wild ride!

Honda's Pioneer UTV range has a huge following on the farms and back blocks of New Zealand.
