On the contrary, the Teryx4 is all that and more, beginning with a perfect combination of performance and ease of operation.

The Teryx4 750 also has a frame that Kawasaki engineers worked tirelessly to perfect. Using detailed computer analysis and loads of off-road testing when developing the Teryx4’s all-new square-tube steel frame, Kawasaki engineers were able to build a strong frame that can withstand the rigors of the off-loading world. Unlike the more conventional designs found on many lighter-duty two-seat RUV models, the Teryx4 features a Double-X frame design with two X-shaped cross members bridging the box structures from corner to corner.
