Standard Features

633 cc Liquid-Cooled, Four-Stroke V-Twin Engine
 90-degree V-twin with four valves per cylinder produces massive torque yet is exceptionally smooth running  
 V-twin design and 80 x 63 mm oversquare bore and stroke help produce high torque with a broad, user-friendly curve  
 Durable all-aluminum cylinders with Electrofusion coating help the engine produce more power  
 Using aluminum bores instead of cast iron cylinder liners improves heat dispersion and reduces weight  
 Large-capacity radiator provides consistent cooling, allowing close engine tolerances, quiet running, and ultimate durability  
 The reservoir cooling hose end is positioned to prevent mud clogging  
 Thermostatically controlled fan keeps engine cool regardless of vehicle speed  
 Twin CVKR-34 carburetors are mounted in a downdraft position, providing the fuel mixture with a straight shot into the combustion chamber for improved efficiency, quicker throttle response and more power  
 Electronically controlled Kawasaki Engine Brake Control helps to slow the ATV under certain conditions  
Snorkel Air Intake
 Airbox design provides easy access to simplify maintenance  
 Oval-type air filter provides large intake area and reduces dust build-up on the filter  
Transmission and Powertrain
 Fully automatic Kawasaki Automatic Powerdrive System (KAPS) continuously variable transmission (CVT) has high and low forward gears plus reverse  
 Shifting timed in higher rpm range for snappy throttle response and aggressive acceleration  
 Water drain hole in drive pulley cover prevents mud from clogging the release bearing for added durability  
 The drive converter shaft is hard chrome finished for durability  
 Belt Check indicator lamp is easy to see  
 Exclusive variable front differential allows riders to control the amount of power delivered to both front wheels with the limited-slip front differential for maximum traction on difficult terrain  
 Selectable two or four-wheel drive for changing terrain and applications done with the flip of a switch  
Independent Front Suspension
 Double wishbone and coil-over-shock absorbers with adjustable preload provide a comfortable ride with 6.7 inches of suspension travel  
 A-arm caster angle provides light steering  
 Aluminum steering knuckles are tough and feature added protection for the CV boots  
 Constant velocity joints at the front wheels have a wide operating range for durability. The joints can also be independently disassembled to simplify maintenance  
Independent Rear Suspension
 Double wishbone and preload adjustable shock for each rear wheel provides superior ride comfort and ground following ability  
 Torsion bar helps minimize body roll  
Brake System
 Dual-piston caliper front disc brakes provide aggressive stopping power  
 Multi-disc rear brake system is totally enclosed within the rear gear case  
 Compact design provides more ground clearance at the rear end  
 An integrated part of the shaft drive, the virtually maintenance-free rear braking system is protected from mud, dust and debris  
Rugged Bodywork
 Thermoplastic Olefin (TPO) bodywork has a high gloss finish for great looks and is more scratch resistant than polyethylene, so it stays looking good longer  
 Dual compartments on the front fenders provide convenient storage. Optional storage cylinder at the rear matches the muffler shape for a sporty, balanced appearance  
Spacious Cockpit
 Comfortable, upright seating position combines with the independent rear suspension for a luxurious ride  
 Wide seat for increased rider comfort  
Additional Features
 Trailer hitch bracket with 1,250-pound towing capacity is standard equipment  
 Digital speedometer, odometer, twin trip meters, clock, hour meter and fuel gauge are mounted at an optimum angle – and utilize a sun visor – to make them more visible from the upright seating position  
 Tire and wheel design provides an integrated look with aggressive bodywork as well as superb traction
