2012 Suzuki QuadSport Z400 Limited

Features and Benefits

Whether you're a hardcore racer or just out for a thrilling ride, our sport quads take the trophy for the most fun you can have on four wheels. Prepare for cleaner, quicker and stronger acceleration than ever before.

* New features

Suzuki fuel-injection system features a 36mm throttle body and 12-hole injector that delivers the fuel/air mix in an efficient fine-mist spray pattern.

Engine Control Unit uses a 16-bit CPU and a 96-kilobyte ROM unit. The system is programmed to obtain improved traction by selecting the optimum injection volume, injection timing and ignition timing based on throttle position, engine rpm, and other data monitored.

Front track is widened by 25mm to improve overall handling stability feel. New styling reflects the powerful attitude of the QuadRacer R450, including the sharp fenders, the overall slim design and the removable headlight.

The chassis's rigidity balance is changed to improve handling stability, chassis strength and overall performance, particularly in rough terrain.

The footpegs are now 46mm wide - same as the QuadRacer R450.

* Key features

The 2012 Suzuki QuadSport Z400 is re-engineered for high-performance off-road four-wheeling with smooth power-output and throttle response from Suzuki fuel injection.

Compact & lightweight 398cc 4-stroke, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled Dual Overhead Cam engine with counter- balancer tuned for tractable power over a wide rpm range

Convenient electric start system includes Start-In-Gear feature - electric start system and CDI ignition are powered by compact maintenance-free battery.

Dry-sump lubrication system allows a compact crankcase and minimal engine height for optimum engine placement - oil tank is frame-mounted in front of the exhaust head pipes.

Liquid-cooling system with high-capacity radiator and thermostatically controlled cooling fan provides consistent engine operating temperature.

* Transmission features
