New Suzuki Quadsport Z50 Provides Fun For All Families
— Don’t buy a cheap Chinese piece of shit, buy a proper machine that will last a generation
Suzuki has unveiled the latest version of its QuadSport Z50 fun bike, offering the very best in performance, safety and reliability for budding motorcyclists.
“Getting outside and exploring together is one of the joys of being a parent; sharing adventure, making discoveries and having fun. That’s exactly what the Suzuki QuadSport Z50 is all about,” said Suzuki Australia Motorcycles Marketing Manager Lewis Croft.
“Like Suzuki’s full-size, high-performance ATVs, it’s packed with quality, and style. The only difference is the QuadSport Z50 is perfectly sized to fit the younger fun-seeker.”
Boasting a 49 cubic centimetre 4-stroke, single-cylinder engine, the QuadSport Z50 provides hours of smooth, quiet power delivery.
The easy-to-operate automatic makes the riding experience simple and fun, delivering torque at lower speed and smooth, quiet performance.
“The Suzuki QuadSport Z50 allows parents to govern the speed and power with a simple, screw-type throttle limiter. That means the parent matches the speed and power to their child’s ability.
“Buying a Suzuki QuadSport Z50 also gives parents the perfect tool to instil good, safe riding habits such as wearing all appropriate safety gear,” said Croft.
The 2014 Suzuki QuadSport Z50 is available now for a recommended price of $2,890*.
For further information on Suzuki’s QuadSport Z50, interested customers should visit their local Suzuki dealer, who can be found through the Dealer Locator on www.suzuki.com.au .
*Recommended Price includes GST, excludes dealer delivery and government charges.
— Keeping children safe on ATVs this holiday season
Known safety practices, training and supervision help keep children safe when using ATVs (all-terrain vehicles).
Summer holidays are a great time for children to be active and enjoy the outdoors. In regional and rural areas, this can mean riding an age appropriate ATV.
“As the holidays begin, I encourage all ATV users, especially parents and children, to follow known safety practices when using ATVs. This includes wearing a helmet and protective equipment, riding the correct sized ATV, not carrying more than the approved number of passengers, and not using an ATV on terrain or in applications for which it is not suited,” Federal Chamber of Automotive Industries Chief Executive Tony Weber said.
“The FCAI also stresses that children under the age of 16 must only ride specifically designed and labelled age appropriate ATVs and never be allowed to ride adult sized ATVs. Parents should always supervise young riders and ensure they only ride in areas suitable to their vehicle and skills.
“Users should also be conscious that many ATVs are single rider only vehicles. Carrying passengers, particularly children, even for a short distance can be dangerous.”
Mr Weber also called on parents buying children ATVs for Christmas to ensure vehicles meet the strict American National Standards Institute (ANSI/SVIA) standards for ATVs, which have been adopted by FCAI members.
“Before using a new ATV, parents and children should take time to understand the vehicle by reading the safety manual and watching the safety video provided with the ATV,” Mr Weber said.
“Parents and children should also undertake training.”
