April 2, 2008 The Quadricycle has been around for more than 100 years, becoming temporarily extinct with the coming of the motorcar. Suzuki’s 1983 QuadRunner LT-125 (top left main pic) became the first four-wheeled ATV and revived the industry, offering a platform for sport, recreation and agricultural workers. So it’s a happy 25th birthday from us the modern quadbike. Suzuki is inviting all Suzuki ATV owners to join in the 25th Anniversary.
The celebration will continue during 2008 at five regional US-based ATV events and we’ll keep you informed as to other international events.
