One of the most important improvements done on the Brute Force 750 4x4i is the revised tuning on the ATV’s engine. Thanks to a new cylinder head and an increased compression ratio, the 2012 Brute Force 750 4x4i now has an upgraded 749cc V-twin four-stroke fuel injected 90-degree engine that offers more power than ever, with enhanced low-rpm performance.

The ATV also has instantaneous fuel delivery and crisp engine response help make the eight-valve engine a hit with sport riders.
For 2012, the entire steering assembly of the Brute Force 750 was repositioned so the bottom of the steering shaft no longer connects directly to the front differential housing. Likewise, a larger radiator was placed high in the chassis for optimum protection against mud and debris, while a new radiator fan and larger-diameter cooling hoses and pipes help maximize cooling performance.
The Brute Force 750 also carries a stronger double-cradle tubular steel frame featuring reinforcements at key areas like the front A-arm mounts, rear stabilizer mounts, engine mounts, and footrest mounts. The resulting improvements allow the ATV to have more impact on rough terrain handling and enhanced durability.
