Kawasaki’s 750cc 4x4 quad is a big, beautiful brute that
offers comfort, lush suspension and great looks in a powerful
package. Whether you choose to work hard or play hard, the
Brute Force 750 is ready to join in.
The Teryx LE is one fine-looking machine. It has every one
of the Teryx’s heavy-duty off-road features with the fit and
finish of a classy auto.
Kawasaki completely revamped part of the Mule work UTV
line. The 2015 Mule PRO-FXT EPS carries six people, and it
has styling and capabilities much closer to the Teryx line.
The PRO-FXT EPS is available in standard, camo and LE trim
The Brute Force 300 is considerably less of a brute, but
it remains something of a bully in this class, The carbureted engine only displaces 271cc, but it runs as well as many
400cc engines. It can haul loads or haul the mail on the trail.
❏ The head of the Kawasaki quad
lineup is the aptly named Brute Force
750 4x4i EPS. The rowdy V-twin pow-
erplant makes big power. It isn’t a
one-trick pony, though. The Kawasaki
combines the power with a CVT; a
sealed, oil-bath, multi-plate rear
brake; and Kawasaki’s own version
of diff-lock. It wraps everything up in
a great look with stylish bodywork,
clean graphics and cast-aluminum
wheels. The 750 starts at $8999, and
Timberline Green is the new color
for the base model. Joining the 750 in
what Kawasaki calls the “sport utility”
arena is the 2WD Brute Force 300. As
far as sport quads go, the KFX50 and
KFX90 are it for now.
The obvious player missing from
the line is the KFX450. It will not be a
2015 model, but Kawasaki says that
dealers have a supply of 2014 units
for sale. The sport model has come
and gone before, so hopefully it will
return with updates.

On the UTV side of the Kawasaki
coin is the Teryx line. It starts with
the black standard Teryx at $12,999.
There are no upgrades for 2015, but
that is understandable considering
the machines had a strong make-
over in 2014 that included more dis-
placement and upgraded Fox sus-
pension. Kawasaki’s Teryx Realtree
Xtra Green Camo model has LED
headlights and a top for $14,299.
There is no performance advan-
tage to the next step up to the Teryx
LE, but the look is like a small 4x4
sports car. Each LE has special LE
model upgrades, including LED head-
