Best in Class - Big Bore Sport Utility, All-Terrain Vehicle Magazine (December 2004)

Big Bore Utility 4x4 Shootout Winner, Dirt Wheels Magazine (January 2005)
"In this shootout, there was a clear winner: the 2005 Suzuki KingQuad. It is a complete package of excellent engineering and design. "¦ We think this is one of the best big-bore quads of all time."

ATV of the Year, ATV Rider Magazine (Canada edition) (February 2005)
"ATV of the Year is the award given to the unit that arrives on the market with innovations so new that it deserves a closer look. These innovations help the industry advance year after year and go beyond known frontiers."

"At $7,199, the KingQuad is not only the least expensive OEM flagship model - it's also the best."
