Description

An ATV Like No Other.





In a world where most riders are used to taking a stock sport ATV and bolting on a long list of aftermarket parts before heading to the racetrack, the 2008 LT-R450 is ready to go right off the show room floor!





The 2008 Suzuki LT-R450 Quadracer is a ready-to-race ATV designed, developed and tested by a team of dedicated Suzuki engineers working with WPSA Pro Motocross Champion Doug Gust.





Powered by a fuel-injected 450cc four-stroke engine, based on the race proven RM-Z450 four-stroke engine, this ATV is designed to deliver broad, smooth power. With fuel injection, vibration-reducing counterbalancers, a five-speed transmission and electric start. In a low-slung, wide track racing chassis with long-travel suspension, a high-tensile steel swingarm and heavy duty steering stem and rear axles. Complete with an exciting, aggressive new look.





A high-performance, race-ready ATV that inspires rider confidence. On the starting line for a WPSA motocross. Or at a local track on a Saturday afternoon

New Engine
