KAWASAKI BRUTE FORCE BUILT KAWASAKI STRONG TO WORK HARD AND PLAY HARD
Designed to get the job done while also having fun recreational capabilities, the 2018 Kawasaki Brute Force® ATV lineup meets the needs of farmers, ranchers and those with a love of the great outdoors. Equipped with either a 749cc V-twin or a 271cc single-cylinder engine, depending on the model, the Brute Force model range is designed to suit a variety of needs and budgets. The Brute Force 750 4x4i models are available with Electric Power Steering (750 4x4i EPS and EPS Camo models) as well as four-wheel drive to help ensure you can conquer the terrain. The price-friendly Brute Force 300 is a great tool to get the job done. Built around a sturdy frame, with proven Kawasaki performance, the Kawasaki Brute Force ATV family is Kawasaki STRONG.
KAWASAKI BRUTE FORCE® 750 4x4i EPS & 750 4x4i EPS CAMO
An ATV ready for anything and powered by a fuel injected 749cc V-twin engine, the Brute Force® 750 4x4i EPS and EPS Camo models both feature two- and four-wheel drive modes, which the rider can select at the touch of a button on the handlebars. They also have the benefit of Variable Front Differential Control for the limited-slip front differential, to allow the rider to choose the amount of torque delivered to the front wheels for improved traction.
Smooth power delivery is achieved using the Kawasaki Automatic Power-Drive System (KAPS) for the Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT), which eliminates shifting and automatically keeps the engine in the most efficient range for any selected vehicle speed, load, or terrain. Both models feature Electric Power Steering (EPS), increasing maneuverability and allowing riders to stay in the saddle longer by reducing fatigue.
Equipped with powerful front disc brakes and double wishbone independent suspension with 6.7 inches of wheel travel, as well as a sealed rear brake system, the Kawasaki Brute Force 750 4x4i EPS and EPS Camo ATVs are well suited for the trail.
These Brute Force ATVs are capable of accomplishing a wide variety of tasks with features like durable cargo racks with integrated tie-down loops. Attractive six-spoke cast aluminum wheels add to the Brute Force ATV’s rugged looks.
New for 2018 for the Brute Force 750 4x4i EPS is the inclusion of Vibrant Blue and Metallic Stardust White color options in addition to Super Black. The Brute Force 750 4x4i EPS Camo continues to be offered in Realtree Xtra® Green camouflage for outdoorsmen who enjoy their time out in the woods.
