COMPARING LOW-COST 4×4 QUADS

-- Honda vs. Yamaha vs. Polaris vs. Kawasaki vs. Can-Am vs. Suzuki vs. Kymco -- We understand what it's like when you want a 4x4 quad so bad, but you don't have a lot of money to spend on one. The good news is that you don't have to get the biggest monster 4x4s to have fun riding off-road. The smaller models will do just fine and they can cost nearly half of what the big boys go for. And, you save even more money if buy used instead of new. There are really good deals on 400 class 4x4s that are around 7 years old. Which…

IMPROVING A BRUTE FORCE

-- KAWASAKI'S BIG BOY V-TWIN 4x4 -- In Dirt Wheels you always see modified sport quads. You may get the idea that only 400, 450 and Raptor riders are the only people who want to improve their machines. Well, that's not the case. There are actually more 4x4 quads out there and those riders are proud to trick out their quads too. Here's an example of that. Andy Breznay is a Dirt Wheels reader in New York and he did a few things to his 2009 Kawasaki Brute Force to make it get through the woods a little quicker and to look good…

KAWASAKI BRUTE FORCE 750 4x4i EPS TEST

-- Still a top contender -- By the staff of Dirt Wheels Kawasaki’s Brute Force 750 has been a staple in the 4x4 ATV market for quite a while now. Revisions have been small over the years, and that is due to how well the big-bore works. Power is plenty, suspension is supple and the Brute can tackle tough jobs around the ranch and rapid-transit trails while spitting rocks or slinging mud. We picked up the 2018 Kawasaki Brute Force 750 4x4i with electronic power steering in Metallic Stardust White for a test in the…

2018 KAWASAKI MULE PRO-FXR

-- UTV TEST --   By the staff of Dirt Wheels -- The Kawasaki Mule line has been around for 30 years, and for much of that time these were bare-bones utility machines that were all about work. Then Kawasaki introduced the Mule Pro lineup. Kawasaki fully intended for the Mule Pro line to be better-appointed utility machines but still basically worker bees. It wasn’t long before market research showed that Mule Pro machinery was spending a lot more time on the trail than Kawasaki expected. The new-for-2018 Mule…

UTV GO-BAG: Everything you should take with you on the trail

KAWASAKI TERYX SNOW MONSTER

-- Jeff Wysocki is a Dirt Wheels reader who lives up in Michigan. He says he rides his Kawasaki Teryx all year round, at the dunes, on the trails, in the mud and even the snow is no problem. As you can see he has made his machine more snow worthy with the addition of Tatou's 4S track system. No amount of snow slows him down. Jeff calls his machine "Casper the Beast" because of the way it totally destroys snow. That is made possible by the  Berco 72" snowblower he has mounted on the front of his Teryx. It can clear…
