slightly. On the scales, the T2 has a
curb weight of 1543 pounds and the T4
weighs in at 1551 pounds. The dump
bed on the two-seater is rated to haul
600 pounds, while the smaller stationary platform on the four-seater has a
One important number that is the
same on both machines is the width
( 61. 6 inches). That measurement is
taken fully loaded and shrinks to
under 60 inches with just a driver
and passenger aboard. This number
should be noted as there are many
ride areas across the country that
have width restrictions for some trails
at 50 inches or 60 inches, so many
machines like Polaris’ RZR XP and
the new Yamaha Viking will not fit,
whereas the Teryx can just bare-
ly squeeze through. Furthermore,
many pickup beds measure just over
60 inches, so the Teryx can still be
hauled in a truck rather than having
to be trailered. The roll cage on the T4
is 2 inches taller at 76. 8 inches.
More numbers that mirror each
other include suspension travel. Up
front, dual A-ams provide 8 inches of
travel. Another set of dual A-arms out
The Fox shocks on all four corners are compression adjustable. They work well absorbing bumps, and the disc brakes
help the machine stop on a dime.
The rear platform on the Teryx four-seater is big enough
to carry a cooler and a few smaller items. We like using
Kawasaki’s rear storage trunk for keeping items out of the
elements. Blingstar makes a roof rack that will fit the Teryxs.
For the new year, Kawasaki improved the
engine slightly and reduced cabin noise.
The V-twin was strong enough to provide a
thrilling ride even at high elevations.
