We are happy to say that the principle feature of the KRX eS is Kawasaki Electronic Control Suspension (KECS) featuring Fox 2.5 Live Valve internal bypass…

WORKHORSE IN FORCE

By the staff of Dirt Wheels WORKHORSE IN FORCE There isn’t much that sells better than a machine meant to get work done. We recently went on the hunt to help our friend John Gordon find the perfect UTV for his business. He spends hours on his ranch moving around equipment, towing small trailers, moving industrial pipe and boiler equipment, grading his property, and transporting his crew on job sites. Occasionally, he likes to take his friends and family members on adventures around his ranch and the surrounding…

2021 KAWASAKI TERYX KRX 1000 TRAIL EDITION

 By the staff of Dirt Wheels 2021 KAWASAKI TERYX KRX 1000 TRAIL EDITION In just one year since its introduction, the Kawasaki Teryx KRX 1000 has become a force in the market.

The Teryx design has aged well, and it has an excellent performance and reliability history. Second, Kawasaki didn’t rush to the market but decided what segment it wanted…

MAXXIS KAWASAKI KRX TRAIL TEST

 By the staff of Dirt Wheels MAXXIS KAWASAKI KRX TRAIL TEST Maxxis race rep Mike Farmer cut his teeth in the dirt-burning laps on motocross tracks. But, UTVs have gradually pushed his dirt bikes out of the garage. Part of the reason was moving his family to southern Utah with its incredible opportunities for adventure off-roading. The Kawasaki KRX 1000 we tested here is his third UTV, after a Polaris XP 1000 4 and a single-seat Polaris RS1, and Mike has no plans to allow the RS1 to leave the garage in the future.…

If this “Rideology is similar to Polaris Ride Command we will get excited. Stay…

RETRO TEST: MOJAVE 250: Thrilling Fun-mobile

Many new sport and high-performance quad models got their start in the bonanza year of ’87. Since then, on­ly a few more “just-for-fun” four-wheelers have come our way. Some, though, like the Yamaha Banshee 350 and Kawasaki Mojave 250, are still go­ing strong well past their ten-year anniversary. https://dirtwheelsmag.com/tag/kawasaki-mojave/ As far as Kawasaki goes, the Mojave has stood as its only sport or a high-performance machine for nearly that same amount of time (the two-stroke Tecate-4 250 was also offered…

This was the first Premier class in ATV racing and became the land of 250cc two-strokes. First,  Honda and later Kawasaki, and then Yamaha joining in. Suzuki stayed out of the 250cc class until it invented the Quadracer. A 200cc class was mostly a 200cc four-stroke class. Later, though, a few 200cc two-strokes began to be involved.
