How can an ATV that’s called ’Brute Force’ be anything more intimidating than its name? Well, if you check out all of the improvements done on the Kawasaki Brute Force 750 4x4i , then you’ll get your answer.
The list of improvements are pretty significant and if you wanted anything more out of an ATV, then that model probably doesn’t exist because the new Brute Force 750 is already all that. And then some.
The most important upgrade for the 2012 model is the engine, which now features a new cylinder head and an increased compression ratio to go with the vehicle’s already impressive 749cc four-stroke fuel injected 90-degree V-twin engine. The engine is then mated to a continuously variable belt-drive transmission.
On top of that, the Brute Force 750 4x4i also has a whole new bodywork with wide-stance styling cues, an instrument panel that includes the speedometer, odometer, dual trip meters, fuel gauge, engine temp, clock, hour meter and 2WD/4WD icon, a new double-wishbone front suspension, a new set of six-spoke cast alloy wheels, dual-range, four-wheel drive, and a double-cradle, high-tensile tubular steel chassis.
All these changes amount to a completely new model that blows away anything its predecessors - or its competitors, for that matter - have to offer. The fact that you only need to shell out $9,299 for a chance to hit the trail with this bad boy is the proverbial cherry on the sundae.
