KingQuad Owners’ Report

The first big KingQuad arrived as a 700 in 2005. It was bumped up to a 750 in 2008, and ever since it has remained as the largest single-cylinder 4×4 you can buy. Anything bigger will be a twin-cylinder machine. Power steering became an option in 2008 for an additional cost. It seems to be worth it, because the owners in this survey who didn’t get the power steering listed that as something they wished they had.

As with most 4×4 riders, KingQuad owners aren’t shy about improving their machines with tires, wheels, winches, bumpers and other accessories. And, they were all happy with the items they bought. This says a lot about the ATV aftermarket industry. In almost every survey we’ve done over the years, 100 percent of the ATV owners are satisfied with the quality and improved performance of the aftermarket items they’ve purchased.
