ATV manufacturer, Suzuki, has upped its game in the fight against quad bike theft.

It has made standard the fitment of the CESAR Security System, powered by Datatag, which is the official security initiative of the Agricultural Engineers Association (AEA).

All new Suzuki utility ATVs will come with the system, but Suzuki said this security system was anything but standard.

Datatag is a unique security system comprised of layers that will never wear out or need servicing. Once fitted, it gives each ATV a unique ‘fingerprint’ with an identity that cannot be erased, however hard a criminal may try.

It is virtually impossible to defeat this multi-layered system, giving you peace of mind plus the added benefit of up to 12.5% reduction in insurance premiums, said Suzuki.

Datatag makes it four times less likely that your quad will be stolen and six times more likely to be recovered. The latest statistics from the latest Suzuki ATV registration and theft report back this up too, it said.

Out of all Suzuki ATVs sold, there is only a 1.9% theft rate and crucially, a 24.5% recovery rate, which matches any tracker system.

Head of ATVs for Suzuki GB, Mark Beeley, said: “We have been working in partnership with Datatag for six years now and we are confident that we are providing our customers with a robust anti-theft solution to give them even more peace of mind that a Suzuki KingQuad is the best ATV for them.”

One deal on offer just now from Suzuki is that if anyone trades in any 325-425cc quad, of any make, then it will give 10% off the RRP on its popular KingQuad 500X model. The offer price of £6839 includes a £760 saving.

The 500X is the entry level model to Suzuki’s range of KingQuads. It offers selectable two or four-wheel-drive, has fully independent suspension and an advanced engine braking system.

In addition, the 493cc fuel-injected engine’s cylinder head and piston are specially designed to provide power and torque across the rev range, making it suitable for towing, use with attachments, or just as an extra pair of legs.
