Facelift for Suzukis ATVs

SUZUKI intends to give its ATV range a rejuvenated appeal by introducing new models with new styling.

Imaginatively named after mountains, the series encompasses the 250cc Ozark and the 400cc Eiger – the latter comes with automatic or a manual transmission.

Driving force for the Eiger is from a four-stroke single overhead cam engine which is claimed to provide good low and mid-range torque.

The engine employs a temperature control system which uses oil pumped from an oil cooler unit through the cylinder head. The cooler unit is equipped with a thermostatically controlled fan.

The Eigers automatic transmission option comprises a QuadMatic continuously variable unit with engine braking. A five-speed manual gearbox is also available.

Front independent double wishbone and rear swing-arm suspension give 170mm of wheel travel, while front and rear load rack capacities are rated at 30kg and 60kg respectively.

For the 250cc Ozark, which has an engine engineered to deliver good mid-range torque, the quad is described as an economical means of transport with serious work capacities.

Front and rear load rack carrying capacities are rated at 20kg and 30kg respectively.

The Ozark 250 is priced at £3149, and the Eiger 400 manual at £4799. &#42
