Boasting the largest engine in Kawasaki's ATV lineup, the Brute Force 750 is built to tackle tough terrain. The 749cc,V-twin engine powers a fully automatic transmission with high and low forward gears and reverse. Riders can select two- or four-wheel drive by pressing the convenient handlebar button. In four-wheel-drive mode, the Brute Force utilizes a limited-slip front differential, which eases steering.
Drivers can also engage the handlebar-mounted variable front differential control lever to manage torque delivery to the right and left front wheels for maximum traction. The Brute Force can tow up to 1,250 pounds, and the front and rear racks can handle a combined 264 pounds. Other features include a 5-gallon fuel tank, 9.7 inches of ground clearance and a digital speedometer, odometer, twin trip meters, clock, hour meter and fuel gauge.
Unveiled in 2008, the Kawasaki Teryx returns with the addition of digital fuel injection to the 749cc V-twin engine. When extra traction is needed, drivers can activate four-wheel drive by pushing a switch. Additional traction is achieved through an ATV-style front differential control activated via a hand lever similar. Driver and passenger sit on bucket seats.
The camouflage version includes standard retracting cup holders, a half-windscreen and a cab roof. Standard equipment includes a multi-function digital meter with a fuel gauge, parking brake indicator, hour meter, clock, odometer, dual trip meters and warning lights. The 500-pound capacity, gas-assisted tilting cargo bed features a cargo net and tie down hooks in all four corners keep gear secure. Teryx has a 1,300-pound towing capacity.
