2012 Kawasaki Mule 610 4x4 XC Camo
The Kawasaki Mule 610 XC Camo isn’t the kind of ride that’s going to win any design contests. But what it is, though, is a great hunting companion whenever you go out into the wild.
The fact that it comes wrapped in Realtree APG HD camouflage makes it the perfect go-anywhere, do-anything vehicle for hunters and other outdoor enthusiasts. The Mule 610 4x4 XC Realtree APG HD is derived from the Mule 610 4x4 and comes with all the hauling capacity and functionality of the latter.
The utility vehicle’s innovative woodland pattern allows it to melt into the environment, making it the perfect vehicle for hunters all around. Make no mistake, though, the Mule XC Camo is all about working. It has a special black-texture paint applied to its 400-pound capacity; it has an all-steel tilting cargo bed that allows even greater aesthetics and durability; and then it has a 1,100-pound towing capacity, which means you can haul whatever hunting gear you need without having to worry about losing some power. Dual cup holders help keep hunters hydrated while a spacious glove box can carry multiple items, and the front hood pops open to reveal more than 12 gallons worth of storage.
The Mule XC Camo also has a power train that it can be proud of. A durable, 401cc fan-cooled overhead-valve engine mated to a continuously variable transmission (CVT) feeds power to all four wheels as needed while the simple automotive controls allows it to be a breeze to use. it couldn’t be much easier to operate.
For all of the Mule XC Camo’s lack in aesthetic appeal, it’s all-around utility and usefulness certainly makes up for all of it.
