With extremely powerful performance and perfect handling, the 525 XC is an offroad powerhouse on four wheels that is unrivaled in its class, bursting with energy, and very lightweight. A big reason why the 525 XC is a notch above every other ATV is its homologation for use on public roads, which not a lot of ATVs can boast of. Aside from lights and mirrors, the corresponding equipment includes a comfortable seat and a 13.4 liter long-range fuel tank to reduce the frequency of breaks when out on tour.

On top of that, the ATV also carries a powerful, liquid-cooled four-stroke, single-cylinder engine that features an extremely wide usable rev range, with a close-ratio, five-speed transmission, hydraulic clutch, and a proven 34 mm Keihin carburetor. The 525 XC’s small lightweight electric starter activates the four-stroke single cylinder reliably and quickly, lessening the longstanding delays that other ATVs might experience.

One other unique detail about the 525 XC is a chassis that can be set for various types of use and different types of course. Camber and caster on the front axle are just as variable as the track on the rear. The shock absorbers have adjustable compression and rebound damping, as well as spring preload, which makes for an all-around versatile endure ATV that just speaks to the prospective owners everywhere.
