2012 Suzuki Ozark 250

Posted on by

Suzuki is known as the first maker of a four wheel ATV, so there’s no wonder why its models are among the most appreciated quad wheelers.

The Suzuki Ozark 250 made its debut in 2002, but despite its relativelly old age, it remained almost the same as it was ten years ago. Fortunately this isn’t as bad as it sounds as the original Ozark was a fairly capable off roader which also had a pretty smart design. The entire design just fits with what you’d usually search in an ATV, it sharp crisp fender cuts, bad-ass tires and also a fairly big saddle which is a bit too stiff but comfortable.

Not to mention that it’s also lightweight and is fitted with a 246cc, single-cylinder, SOHC, 2-valve, air-cooled, overhead-cam engine. The engine is as lively as it was in 2002 and fortunately doesn’t need any urgent upgrades as it rewards you with a pretty crisp acceleration and a decent torque.
