the new Kawaski and arctic cat sport quads. Same damn thing as the z except plastic. I think its dumb. Suzuki should of came out with the z and made kawi and arctic cat come up with there own ideas so there would of been 2 more different sport quads to chose from.

The Arctic Cat has a different motor. Only 376cc there. I think they just use the frame.
The Kawi stuff is ok. This way no one will be coming out with a 400cc quad that might be better than ours in the near future. If everyone uses this Z stuff, we'll have lots of aftermarket stuff too.

its actually not that surprising, the auto industry does it ALL the time, GM , hmmm, lets see, sierra = silverado , yukon = suburban, jimmy = tahoe, etc etc etc......since they are one company now, its ok for them to do it, and the artic cat is a diffrent quad all together 376cc's....also, the kawi and zuki look diffrent from the sides, near the pipes, have a glance and figure it out...

Well, I really don't care. I love my Z. But, what most people are missing is the fact that if there are two to three production quads out there that are pretty much the same, PARTS PARTS PARTS. They'll be plentiful, cheaper, and easier to obtain. It's a blessing in disguise my friends.
peace

Actually, the AC is the same quad as the Z and the KXF. It's NOT a 376cc motor. That was for a different AC quad with an auto trannie. the new AC is the same as the Z just with different plastic. And not to cause a war or nothing but, sierra=silverado, yukon=tahoe, jimmy=blazer

Actually, Zuk and Kawi are sharing rides. Zuk gets some of the little bikes from Kawi and Kawi gets three quads from Suk.

But who really cares. If you own or are looking to but a Z or one of the triplets, be glad. This means more aftermarket parts and cheaper aftermarket parts quicker.

Use your head for something other that helmet filler.

That is a major LIE! Suzuki is its own Company!

I think of the Suzuki/Kawasaki Realtionship the same as the Toyota/Pontiac Realtionship Toyota made the Matrix and the Pontiac Vibe

there is a denali and a denali XL. the XL is the suburban length, the denali is the yukon/tahoe length.

it is actually a good idea, cause now they will make money off the Zuki lovers, Kawie lovers, and AC lovers, before Kawie and AC didn't have this good of a sport quad and they didn't have to put a lot of money into the research, and if they are all together( I know zuki and kawie are) then this means more money for all of them.

Isnt that the same motor used in the 400 Eiger? Is Artic Cats quad going to be a big version of a 250EX (sport utility quad with different plastic)

it has the same engine as the Z, everything about it is the same except the plastic, just like the KFX

Just to clear things up... Suzuki has been rumored to get a version of the Kawi Prarie... this partnership is good for both companies... thats why we all spent the same money as those guys buying the 400ex's. If not for this partnership, the prices would be higher... just wait for Honda to release a new 400cc quad... you will see a steeper price tag.
