The Kawasaki Prairie is not the Brute Force, that much we can be clear of. First, it’s not as powerful as the Brute Force and second, it doesn’t have as cool of a name. Sorry, but ’Prairie’ reminds us of The Sound of Music more than anything else.

Odd name choice notwithstanding, this particular Prairie 360 4x4 ATV still packs plenty of things that will draw you to it, not the least of which is the special Realtree APG HD camouflage that it’s been coated in. The color is perfect for riding outdoors or in a local hunting ground. Those poor deer won’t even know you’re there.

In any case, the Prairie 360 is powered by a 362cc air-cooled, single cylinder, four-stroke engine with a continuously variable transmission (CVT) and a reliable shaft drive. Whenever there’s a need for added traction, the four-wheel drive system can be activated with just a flip of the switch while a limited-slip front differential helps keep steering light and precise, even in four-wheel drive. If conditions become a little tricky, Kawasaki has a Variable front Differential Control that can send power to both front wheels.

The Prairie 360 also comes with a large saddle and full-sized floorboards with adjustable serrated footpegs to give the right level of comfort while also protecting the rider from all the mud and debris that will inevitably scatter.

We probably don’t need to sell you on the ATV more than what we’ve already done because the Prairie 360 4x4 and all of its features certainly speaks for itself.

Automotive Aftermarket Expert -
Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More
