The Kawasaki Mule 610 4x4 is a reliable utility vehicle, ready to endure the punishment of any rugged terrain with ease. Thanks to its ergonomic design and the capable all wheel drive system, the Mule 610 4x4 is one of the most versatile ATVs in Kawasaki’s lineup.
The vehicle was built with utility in mind and features automotive-type controls, a convenient gear selector, two generous cup holders, a passenger-side glove box and grab handle, and extra storage space beneath the front hood.
The ATV is powered by a 722cc liquid-cooled DOHC 4-valve fuel-injected engine. The powerplant is married to a continuously variable transmission which sends power to all four wheels. The engine is mounted on a steel tube frame which is combined with independent front suspension and a swing-axle rear suspension.
The Mule 610 is also equipped with a 400-pound-capacity tilting cargo bed. Additionally you can equip the ATV with an optional trailer hitch which can tow up to 1,100 pounds.

Kawasaki Mule 610 4x4 XC Camo
Crawl-Along for Stealth, or Blast Through for Fun!
The ultimate off-road vehicle for hunters and other outdoor enthusiasts is what you get when you take a durable Mule™ 610 4x4 XC and wrap it in a premium Realtree® APG™ HD® camouflage pattern.
The Mule 610 4x4 XC Realtree APG HD includes all of the hauling capacity and functionality that make the Mule 610 4x4 a standout utility vehicle. And with an innovative woodland pattern that allows the Mule to melt into the environment, it becomes the perfect hunting vehicle.
The primary visual giveaway to the XC’s off-road goodness is its aggressive, 26-inch Maxxis Bighorn radial tires mounted on 12-inch rims. But there’s also a load of features designed to complement the XC’s more aggressive nature and infuse it with a large helping of what can only be described as cool factor.
The standard Mule 610 4x4 can go just about anywhere, but the Mule 610 4x4 XC takes that functionality quite a few steps further. Not only do those burly 26-inch Maxxis tires provide loads more traction, their extra width increases the Mule’s track by 1.3 inches. Their greater height also gives this Mule a full 8.1 inches of ground clearance. The large tires combine with longer front and rear suspension to help the Mule climb over obstacles, while standard skid plates help protect vital systems.
When designing this stealthy camouflaged Mule 610 4x4 XC, Kawasaki engineers made room for those large tires by kicking the Mule’s front bumper forward 1.2 inches. And while they were at it, the team added genuine Realtree graphics, a comfortable seat covered in a pliable, durable material and a small-diameter sport steering wheel lifted straight from the Kawasaki Teryx™.
In spite of its wide-ranging capabilities and radical design, you can be sure of the XC’s reliable and economical drivetrain. A durable, 401cc fan-cooled overhead-valve engine mated to a continuously variable transmission (CVT) feeds power to all four wheels as needed, and simple automotive controls mean it couldn’t be much easier to operate. An enrichening system partially opens the throttle for easy engine starts, hot or cold, and the Mule can be started in forward (Hi or Lo) or reverse gear, provided the brake pedal is applied. Select 2WD or 4WD and away you go.
MacPherson strut front suspension and rack-and-pinion steering combine great bump absorption with light handling, while the Mule’s mid-engine layout and swingarm rear suspension provide plentiful traction in back. A powerful braking system brings it all to a reliable halt.
As fun and hunt-oriented as it looks, the Mule 610 4x4 XC is all about working. A special black-texture paint applied to its 400-pound capacity all-steel tilting cargo bed allows even greater aesthetics and durability, while a 1,100-pound towing capacity means you can haul whatever hunting gear you need. Dual cup holders help keep hunters hydrated, a capacious glove box can carry more than just gloves, and the front hood pops open to reveal more than 12 gallons worth of storage. Accessories include an enclosed cab, snow plow, winch and soft or hard tops, all available through Kawasaki dealers.
