Overview

Kawasaki Teryx4 Camo

Camouflaged 4-Passenger Side x Side Doesn’t Hide Its Strength

Last season, few competitors in the hotly contested four-seat Side x Side market could even come close to matching the Kawasaki Teryx4™ CAMO. Now with improved power, handling and performance, thanks to key improvements to its engine, suspension and lighting package for 2014, this super-tough Side x Side will definitely run and hide from the pretenders—and not just because of its tough coating of genuine Realtree® APG™ HD® camouflage!

This durable Teryx4 is more woods-ready than ever, thanks to a substantial displacement boost to its heavily upgraded 90-degree V-twin, which now generates 10% more torque and 8% more power for tackling steep hills, negotiating mud bogs and scampering over rocks. At the same time, it also while delivering better fuel economy so you can drive it deeper into the forest, farther out on the range or longer in the desert between fuel stops.

The 2014 upgrades go well-beyond its new larger and more powerful engine. All-new high-performance Fox Podium coil-over piggyback shocks let the Teryx4 attack the trail with more comfort than ever before. And fear not the dark, because the CAMO model’s new LED headlights offer higher intensity lighting for improved visibility in dark driving conditions. With its cutting-edge Electric Power Steering (EPS) system, proven technology that provides light, low-effort steering for navigating through the most adverse conditions with ease, this tough Side x Side can take you anywhere, any time.
