Suzuki Quadzilla ATV Specs

by Jean Harris



Suzuki LT500r Quadzilla For Sale listing prices are steadily increasing over time as the ATV known simply as Quadzilla remains a very desirable and even collectible quad. Mainstream media has even picked up on the value of Quadzilla on such popular TV shows as Auction Hunters in their episode titled ‘Quadzilla Attacks’.

The LT500r is perhaps best known for being too strong, it’s high performance design unfortunately led to several injuries and its sale was discontinued as a result which only serves to make it a rare ATV today. Top speed for a quadzilla is 75-85MPH depending on altitude, tuning and weather conditions.

I found this Suzuki Quadzilla for sale on Craigslist in Boise ID.
