Because there should be no doubt that this next-generation flagship ATV from Kawasaki is anything other than the most potent, most technically advanced plus
the most comfortable ATV we’ve ever created. Producing power that was almost unthinkable just a few years ago, we added 52cc to our award-winning liquidcooled SOHC 4-valve V-Twin engine, then crafted a completely new frame with new double wishbone front suspension. But unlike competing systems, Kawasaki’s
independent rear suspension offers far superior anti-dive resistance that maintains sporty handling. Of course, as pioneers in the industry we understand when you’re
adventuring far into the woods or climbing across mountain tops, you demand an electrically selectable 2WD/4WD system with variable front differential control for

tight situations and an engine braking system second to none. Mission accomplished: The Kawasaki Brute Force 750 is an astonishingly powerful and capable ATV.
Sure, the new Brute Force 750 4x4i is our most powerful, quickest-accelerating 4x4 utility
ATV. But this next-generation flagship ATV from Kawasaki is more than the most potent and
most technically advanced ATV we’ve ever created. It’s also the most comfortable, most
luxurious thanks to its leading-edge independent front and rear suspension systems. So the
next time you’re heading out to the blind or crawling up a steep incline, you’ll be enjoying
one of the smoothest rides in the woods. To produce the kind of ground hugging system that
soaks up every ripple and bump on the trail, we developed a completely new steel frame
and added new dual A-arm front suspension. Then we added an innovative Independent
Rear Suspension system that offers the dual benefits of smooth action but with less dive for
sporty handling not found on competitive models. We also included an electrically selectable
2WD/4WD system with push button convenience. The result is an astonishingly comfortable
and luxurious premium ATV that just happens to enjoy the hunt as much as you do.
The REALTREE Hardwoods Green ® HD™ camouflage pattern is

Kawasaki delivers the leading edge of power and performance
with its 749cc V-Twin engine for more power, more torque, quicker
acceleration and stronger pulling power. The best powerplant in an
ATV just got better.
Boasting a bore and stroke of 85 x 66mm, the Brute Force’s 90˚ angle

You wouldn’t use a compact pickup to haul granite, so don’t choose an average ATV for huge
jobs. Instead, order up a Kawasaki Prairie ® 700 4x4. Our biggest Prairie model was born
and bred not only to tackle big jobs but also to head into the woods with sporting prowess.
The story begins with the stump-pulling torque of a big SOHC liquid-cooled V-Twin engine.
It powers smoothly through our Kawasaki Automatic Power-Drive System and shaft drive for
effortless operation so you can concentrate on the obstacles that lay ahead. A double-cradle,
high-tensile steel frame, truck-inspired styling, MacPherson strut front suspension and drilled
front disc brakes serve notice of the Prairie 700’s sporting intentions. Its selectable 4-wheeldrive system with Hi/Low range ensures maximum traction in any conditions, from the sands of
Santa Fe to Georgia’s slick red clay. But don’t take our word for it, DIRT WHEELS magazine gave
it their top vote in winning their giant 4x4 shootout. Add a multi-function LCD digital instrument
display and a handy 12-volt accessory plug and the Prairie 700 is as versatile as any sport utility
could be. When you’ve got to do it all, it’s exactly what you want. And everything you need.

(K-EBC ™) system takes advantage of engine compression and

The advantage of the V-Twin is that it produces massive, stump
pulling torque at very low revs yet delivers quick acceleration.
The Prairie 700 4x4 offers the convenience of selectable 4WD
and 2WD that is as close as a flick of a switch on the handlebar.
The world’s best ATV rear braking system: An enclosed multi-disc,
internal rear braking system housed inside the alloy swingarm. It’s
lightweight, completely sealed from the elements and very powerful.
The comprehensive LCD instrumentation displays a large digital
speedometer plus information on fuel level, odometer, dual trip
meters and a clock for keeping track of time.
The KAPS automatic transmission is easy to select with its hand
operated shifter. The transmission is built extra tough to deliver
smooth starts and excellent throttle response.
You’ve got chores to get done. And you’ve got
weekends to fill. What you need is a versatile
Prairie ® 360, a middleweight ATV with a penchant
for hard work – and a talent for relaxation. With fullsize construction and a torquey air-cooled single
cylinder engine with shaft drive, the Prairie 360
can handle an amazing workload. Like carrying
up to 242* pounds on its front and rear racks and
towing even more with its standard trailer-hitch
bracket. Best of all, the Prairie 360 has electric
starting, fuss-free Kawasaki Automatic Power-Drive System, adjustable shocks and footpegs, advanced
K-EBC ™ engine braking and a powerful sealed rear brake. • Step up to the tough Prairie 360 4x4
when you need a middleweight work mate with 4-wheel drive. Like the Prairie 360, it features
Hi/Low range plus reverse while its limited-slip front differential allows light steering and tight
maneuvering. Plus it’s the only ATV in its class featuring leading-edge Variable Front Differential
Control that lets you adjust power flow to the front wheels. Now that’s working and playing smart.
Prairie ® 360 4x4 • Prairie ® 360
The gate-style shifter is within easy reach for Hi, Low and Reverse.
Selectable 4WD or 2WD drive system is as easy as a flip of the switch.
Now you have all-wheel drive control for maximum traction or the light
and sporty performance of 2-wheel drive when you want it.
Tough, dependable powerplant in the Prairie 360 4x4 is a rugged 362cc
SOHC, 4-stroke air-cooled Kawasaki engine that produces strong low-speed
power with a high-capacity remote oil cooler.
In normal 4x4 mode, the front differential operates like a traditional limitedslip design for light steering. But for added traction, just pull on the
handlebar-mounted lever and you’ll engage torque to both front wheels.
Featuring Kawasaki’s highly-acclaimed, speed-sensitive Engine Brake Control
(K-EBC ™) system, the Prairie 360 4x4 uses the engine’s compression to help
slow the machine on steep hills and when towing heavy loads. And K-EBC
slows all four wheels when 4x4 is engaged unlike some competing models.
Long-travel, plush MacPherson strut front suspension mounts to a cast alloy
unitized lower bracket and steering arm mount for light and more precise
turning with the added benefit of protection for the important CV joint.
Front and rear sealed shaft drive are clean and offer long service life.
With advanced dual-range automatic transmission – KAPS – Kawasaki
Automatic Power-Drive System, the Prairie 360 4x4 is not only easy to ride,
it’s powerful and smooth.
Extra tough steel skid plates and front bumper help protect the
undercarriage while bright twin headlights add versatility to the Prairie
360’s rugged performance.
The Prairie 4x4’s sturdy steel front and rear racks offer a large surface area to
carry up to 242 pounds* of cargo.
*Other ATV load capacities vary. See owner’s manual for proper loading instructions on all Kawasaki ATVs.
The 228cc SOHC 4-stroke engine develops its power
from low engine speeds so it can crawl up trails and
haul heavy loads. A counter-rotating engine balancer
helps keep vibration to a minimum for rider comfort.
The Bayou 250 equals tremendous value when you add
up its features. From hunting to farming, the Bayou 250
is built to satisfy a wide variety of riders.
You can count on the trouble-free electronic ignition.
Mounted next to the fuel filler cap is an easy-to-read
fuel gauge. A fuel-efficient 24mm carburetor means the
Bayou is a miser when it comes to operating costs.
With its proven electrical system and dependable electric
starter, the Bayou 250 starts quickly and easily. A choke
lever conveniently mounted on the handlebar makes for a
quick warm up in cold weather.
The back-up recoil starting system is operated by
a pull cord mounted on the left side.
With the parking brake built into the left-hand brake
lever, securing your ATV on a slope is quick and easy.
The Bayou 250 provides reliable, quiet and lowmaintenance operation thanks to its fully sealed shaft
drive system powering the rear wheels.

Haul tools. Tow supplies. Run fence line. Working on the land for a living is a tough job but when you fire up the Bayou ® 250 life becomes a whole bunch easier.
Because while Kawasaki’s most compact ATV loves hard work, it’s also economical, dependable and easy to live with. The Bayou 250 has a robust 4-stroke
engine with effortless electric starting and a backup recoil starter for peace of mind. An automatic clutch and versatile 5-speed transmission lets you pick the
