BREA, Calif. – Suzuki Motor of America has updated a number of motorcycles and ATVs for the 2015 model year.

The 2015 DR200S ($4,499) has some of the most significant differences from the previous model. The styling has been changed to look more like the RM-Z, and the reshaped seat integrates with the redesigned fuel tank.

Suzuki said the ergonomics now make the DR200S a better fit for a wider range of riders. The dual-sport bike is available in yellow and black.

In contrast to the DR200S, the DR-Z125L returns for 2015 with no major changes. It is available in yellow and carries an MSRP of $3,199.

In the ATV category, the updates to the 2015 KingQuad 750AXi are all about better engine performance. It has a newly designed twin-spark-plug cylinder head for improved combustion and power feeling. Multi-hole fuel injectors provide finer injection spray while projection-type spark plugs should make cold starting better, Suzuki said. There are modified intake and exhaust cam profiles, and the exhaust system has been updated for cleaner emissions. Suzuki said that fuel consumption has been improved by ten percent over the previous model year.

The KingQuad 750AXi is available in red, green and camo without power steering ($8,899-9,299) and with it ($9,499-9,999).

The KingQuad 400ASi and FSi changes are also focused on cleaner emissions and improved performance. Both of the utility-sport quads have a new ECU with Slip-Control Logic technology for better traction and grip. Iridium spark plugs are designed for better combustion and cleaner emissions, and the exhaust has been refined to give stronger feel in the low-to-mid RPM range.

Suzuki has reported that the 2015 400ASi has a 15-percent savings in fuel consumption, while the 400FSi has a 17-percent improvement.

The 400s are also available in red, green and camo. The KingQuad 400ASi and FSi both have an MSRP of $6,499 ($6,899 for camo).

The QuadSport Z90 ($2,899) also returns in 2015 for the youth market.

Along with the 2015 model information, Suzuki Manufacturing of America Corp. (SMAC) and Suzuki Motor of America Inc. announced that the SMAC ATV assembly facility in Rome, Ga., will begin assembling engines for all Suzuki KingQuad ATVs this summer. The change will be phased in over a three-month period, culminating in August.
