KAWASAKI IS DEVELOPING ELECTRIC & SELF DRIVING UTV’S

In this mornings 2021 product launch video that focused primarily on motorcycles, Kawasaki did let us know they have been working on electric & self driving  UTV's for the line. The company will announce a few new UTV’s on January 26th. We don’t think this new E or Ai tech will be available so quickly on production Kawasaki's , we do, on the the otherhand, think they will announce some sort of “Rideology” as they call it to several models. 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…

SPORT 4×4 SHOOTOUT | GRIZZLY 600 vs. SPORTSMAN 500 vs. PRAIRIE 400

SPORT 4x4's In this look back at a classic Dirt Wheels Magazine shootout, we check out a crop of SPORT 4x4's. Television’s Tim Allen would fit right in aboard one of the current crop of Sport 4x4's. You can almost hear his 'Home Improvement' character give one of his hearty "Ho-ho-ho’s" in approval of the current reign of large-displacement ATVs in the Monster truck class of four-wheel drives. Bigger is always better, right? Well, the tool twisters here at Dirt Wheels wanted to know if Tim Allen, and…

ATV SHOOTOUT: SUZUKI KINGQUAD 750 AXi 4×4 vs KAWASAKI BRUTE FORCE  750 4x4i

Power meets finesse By the staff of Dirt Wheels It can be tough proving which machine is the best between two highly acclaimed 4x4 ATVs from two of the top Japanese manufacturers. Kawasaki has had great success with their hefty Brute Force 750 4x4i powerhouse. It hasn’t been upgraded in quite a while, but Suzuki performed a full makeover on the KingQuad 750AXi 4x4 in 2018. It was refaced, reworked, strengthened and tuned to be a better version of its previous self. We jumped, crawled, clawed, submerged and ripped…

ATV TEST: 2020 KAWASAKI BRUTE FORCE 750 4x4i EPS

Power-hungry By the staff of Dirt Wheels, Photos by Casey Kramer Kawasaki’s Brute Force 750 has always been defined as a power-monger in the class. From the beginning of the model’s long lifespan, the engine performance has been so impressive that it has remained the class bully with few revisions. We aren’t belittling the chassis at all. It does all that is asked in fine fashion. While the shocks are relatively basic by sport standards, the suspension is supple and surprisingly well-controlled for spirited riding.…

IS A TURBO/4-SEAT KRX1000 COMING?

The image with the machines under cover are the new models that will be announced on July 7th. It’s easy to tell, the one on the left is a Mule utility model, the one in the middle could be a 4-seater with KRX1000 bodywork and the one on the left is another yet to be released KRX.  On June 1st, Kawasaki released the 2021 KRX1000, so this new model is either a special edition model or possibly, something with a turbo or supercharger. The anticipation is killing us. Here’s what we know so far. For 2021, the Kawasaki…
