Posted on by  

The 2013 Kawasaki KVF300 was born to help you with light works around the farm and offers a great mix of comfort, agility and practicality.

This compact ATV is propelled by a 271 cc, liquid-cooled, SOHC, 2 Valves, 4-stroke engine paired with a two speed automatic transmission with reverse. The engine rewards you a maximum power of 16.0 kW (22 PS) at 7,500 rpm and 22.3 Nm (2.3 kgf.m) of torque at 6,500 rpm.

To be able to deal effortless with tough tracks, the ATV has also received a set of rugged suspensions which include double wishbone units with 5-way adjustable preload up front (131 mm of wheel travel) and a rear swingarm with 5-way adjustable preload (141 mm of wheel travel).

For enhanced practicality the 2013 Kawasaki KVF300 is equipped with robust front and rear carriers, which can carry 20 kg and 30 kg respectively.

Overview

Kawasaki KVF300

Time to get busy. Making light work of hard tasks, the new entry-level KVF300 has the features you’d expect from a much larger – and expensive – ATV. CVT transmission, disc brakes front and rear plus a ready for work water-cooled engine are all designed to deliver. Add a generous 227kg towing capacity and the KVF represents solid engineering plus stunning value for money.
