Cons: If you plan on hauling things, get something bigger

The Bottom Line: The Suzuki Quadrunner 250 is the best four wheeler in it’s class.

I decided it was time to look into getting a four wheeler before hunting season started, and I began by researching the different makes and models online. I looked at every single brand that is available where I live, including Honda, Polaris, Kawasaki, Yamaha, and Suzuki. After comparing prices and reading countless reviews, I decided to go with the 2002 Suzuki Ozark 250 Quadrunner.

Here#146s why.

Suzuki made this 250 model in order to compete with everyone else, and they made it just a little better than everyone else. Compared to other 250 size bikes, this one has a bigger motor, bigger gas tank, higher ground clearance, and weighs less. It is also roughly the same price as the others @ $3600 plus tax.

It features a 246cc motor, which is bigger than any other 250 bike I could find. The 2002 Honda is only 230-something, as are most of the others. In fact, the 2002 Suzuki 250 is the only true 250-size bike.

The other guys skimp on you, but charge the same price.

Besides the motor size, one of the biggest selling factors for me was that this bike has 8.3 inches of ground clearance, where the other one only had between 6 and 7. I do a lot of riding out in areas where there are no trails, so I need as much clearance as possible in order to cross over fallen trees and other obstacles. The 2.8-gallon gas tank holds enough to let you ride long enough to get yourself good and sore, and muddy.

This four wheeler uses a drive shaft rather than a chain, as do most newer ones. This makes for a smoother, more reliable ride, plus it is far more durable than a chain ever could be. The only downfall is that it would be very expensive to replace, but I don#146t rough-handle mine too bad so hopefully that won#146t be a problem.

Another feature I like is the dual headlights. Where many have a single light in the center of the handlebars, this one has two very bright lights in the front, sort of like what you#146d see on a car. At night, they can throw the light out for quite a distance.

Handling is wonderful with this bike, and it turns very sharply. Acceleration is pretty good, so long as you remember that this ATV is not for racing. This model features an automatic clutch, along with the foot shifter, which makes shifting between gears faster and easier to do.

You will often find the need to downshift while climbing hills or going over any kind of rough terrain.

I used my GPS as a speedometer one afternoon and got this bike up to 25 mph without any problem. I know it could have gone much faster, but I didn#146t feel like going to the hospital that day. Don#146t go racing these things!

They are not made for that!

At 403 pounds when dry, this bike is lighter than many others. Having a lighter bike is wonderful when you get stuck and need to manually lift it out. I am by no means a weak guy, but when tires get stuck in the mud, the moisture creates a suction that makes things harder to lift out. Also, understand that 250 model bikes are for a single rider only . Not only will having another person put a lot more strain on the motor, but it will also push your shocks down more than what they are rated for.

It is not at all safe, either.

Just because the seat is big enough to hold two people, it doesn#146t mean that you should ever have more than one person on at a time. The front and rear metal storage racks are large enough to haul an ice chest, some firewood, or even a deer, but should not be used for anyone to sit on. I#146ve seen people break those racks off their bikes by putting too much weight on them.

All in all, I am very happy with my purchase and expect many long years of service from this four wheeler. If you are in the market for a 250 class bike, you should seriously consider the Suzuki. It really is better than the rest.
