The name ’Prairie’ may not illicit the kind of reaction you’d want in a powerful ATV, but make no mistake, the Kawasaki Prairie 360 4x4 is still one of the most desirable ATVs on the market.
The do-it-all characteristics of the Prairie 360 are made to look better courtesy of a stealthy coating of Realtree APG HD camouflage. An innovative pattern melts into the environment, helping outdoor enthusiasts get to their favorite hunting ground or riverbank without disturbing the locals.
The Prairie 360 4x4 is powered by a 362cc air-cooled, single cylinder, four-stroke engine, a continuously variable transmission (CVT), and a reliable shaft drive. While the engine provides the power of the vehicle, the CVT enables the engine to operate in its optimal rpm range, churning out maximum torque, regardless of the speed or riding conditions. It also offers high and low forward gears plus reverse. When it comes time for extreme conditions, the Prairie 360 4x4 features a Variable Front Differential Control lever that sends out power to both front wheels, ensuring that no situation is too tough for the machine.
With an ATV that carries all these features, it’s important for it to be able to handle the rough terrain, too. That’s where the Prairie’s MacPherson strut front suspension and single-shock aluminum swingarm rear suspension comes into play, giving the ATV a supple ride with 6.7" and 7.1" of front and rear travel, respectively. The ATV also has a brake set-up that features dual front disc brakes providing superior stopping power to the front wheels and a sealed, oil-bathed multi-disc rear brake system providing equal braking power on the rear.
