Rugged simplicity that’s hard to beat
With its durable four-stroke engine, electric starting, five-speed transmission and steel cargo racks, Kawasaki’s Bayou 250 is one of the best values on four wheels. From playing games in the field to working around the ranch, the rugged and affordable Bayou 250 is ready for anything thrown its way.
The Bayou 250 ATV utilizes independent A-arm front suspension and is the only ATV in its class to feature a semi-independent multi-link rear suspension. This design provides a smooth, compliant ride without the complexity and maintenance requirements of a fully independent design.
Additional features include triple drum brakes, hitch bracket, easy-to-read fuel gauge and a 12-volt accessory connector that makes hooking up electrical accessories quick and easy. Plus, its steel cargo racks can carry a combined weight of 110 pounds.
Authentic Kawasaki Accessories are available through Kawasaki dealers or they can be purchased on the Internet at www.kawasaki.com.
As with all off-highway vehicle recreation, Kawasaki encourages ATV riders to ride responsibly and to respect the environment. Kawasaki will pay first-time buyers of a new Kawasaki ATV $100 for completing an ATV rider safety course conducted by the ATV Safety Institute (ASI).
