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 2007 LT-R450 is a whole new concept.
A machine built for racing, with the help of WPSA Champion Doug Gust.
Nothing tests an ATV more then Racing
It is a sport in which machine engineering and rider confidence must combine to produce winning speed.
The 2007 Suzuki LT-R450 Quadracer. 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.
Four-stroke, single cylinder, fuel injected, liquid cooled, DOHC. Four valve engine designed to be compact, lightweight and provide incredible performance
Innovative Suzuki Advanced Sump System allows the engine mass and crankshaft to be positioned close to the ground for a low center of gravity and also keeping the engine as short as possible
Aluminum cylinder bore is electro-plated with Suzuki’s own race proven SCEM (Suzuki Composite Electrochemical Material for improved heat transfer, lightweight and tighter piston clearance
Lightweight magnesium clutch cover, magneto cover, and cylinder head cover for minimal weight and maximum durability
Lightweight and durable titanium valves are used for precise valve control at high rpm and reduced reciprocating mass. Titanium intake valves measure 36mm and 29mm on the exhaust
Lightweight forged aluminum pistons use a new 3 ring design with cutaway sides, oil retaining grooves for reduced friction and the oil control ring features a high performance chrome nitride plating for less friction and improved strength
Five speed transmission is exceptionally compact with larger 1st and 2nd gears mounted outboard while the 3rd, 4th and 5th gears are mounted inside for a compact engine layout and superb handling
