I am very interested in the KU 65 for my son for a couple of reasons. I am looking for some insight and opinions in regards to my thinking and assumptions:
The KU 65 can be seen @ www.kasea.com
and then by selecting international and then products.
I am checking with a local dealer to ensure I can get one (The KS which is listed under international is here in the US)
The KU 65 is modeled after a utility quad not a sport quad.
I ride a utility quad (Suzuki KingQuad 300) and for the most part use it recreationally to ride rough trails through the woods.
My thinking here is that my son's first quad would "look like dad's" and all of our relative's and friend's quads.
Secondly, it is a 65cc 4 stroke. Not knowing much about it other than it is a 4-stroke as compared to the 2-stroke 50cc of the skyhawk I am assuming a couple of things:
One: Straight gas means no oil injector means no double cable means easier to push throttle.
Two: Should have more low-end torque. Leads to slower riding / hill climbing ability (not that he is going to be scaling Everest mind you)
Three: IMHO, 4-strokes are more bulletproof
Also, the KU 65 appears to have full-length footboards which addresses my only immediate dislike about the skyhawk (and the KS for that matter)
I must say that when I first starting looking at quads for my son I was headed toward Suzuki or Kawasaki (also Suzuki) but that the reasoned and informed comments of Raptor720 as well as looking at various models for myself (Can't believe the lies you hear from "dealers" of other makes) have made me realy like this "no name" Kasea.
Once again, any help in not blowing $1700 on a mistake would be appreciated.
