If driving the multi-purpose Kawasaki Teryx 750 FI 4x4 isn’t fancy enough for you, then we suggest you opt for the same machine that’s been wrapped up in a more colorful package. That’s what you get with the Teryx 750 4x4FI LE Special Graphics Edition. Already gifted with cool extras that are standard equipment, the Teryx LE SGE comes with custom graphics straight from the Kawasaki factory. Two different color variations of the hydro-dipped film overlay graphic come with a hand-painted hot-rod flame pattern, adding even more flavor to the already cool RUV.

Outside of the special graphics, everything about the Teryx 750 FI 4x4 LE SGE remains the same to its siblings, including all the luxury touches that include a cab roof, a deflector windshield, and the retractable cup holder.

Power is also a key ingredient on the Teryx, which boasts of a 749cc 90-degree eight-valve V-twin engine that packs plenty of power across a wide rpm range, but also provides unmatched smoothness. This engine is matched up with an advanced digital fuel injection system offering automatic elevation compensation, automatic idle adjustment, and easy, choke-free starting via a sophisticated array of sensors for inlet air pressure, throttle position, crankshaft position, rpm, and water temperature.

As far as handling is concerned, the Teryx 750 FI 4x4 LE SGE has an up-standard chassis and suspension design that’s built for the roughest and toughest of terrains. The RUV’s wide-track frame uses large-diameter, thin-walled tubing to combine tremendous rigidity with light weight while a long-travel four-wheel independent suspension, adjustable Kayaba gas-charged shocks at all four corners, a rear stabilizer bar, and mid-ship engine placement all work together to tame even the most difficult of trails.

  • Teryx’s liquid-cooled, 749cc SOHC, four-valve-per-cylinder, fuel-injected, 90-degree V-twin engine cranks out class-leading power
  • Oversquare (85 x 66mm) engine dimensions and free-breathing four-valve cylinder heads contribute to the Teryx’s superb acceleration and power level
  • The 90-degree V-twin configuration offers perfect primary balance, resulting in low engine vibration
  • Aluminum cylinders are electrofusion-plated for light weight, long wear and excellent heat dispersion
  • Engine can be started in any gear, as long as the brake pedal is depressed
  • Electronically controlled Kawasaki Engine Brake Control helps to slow the RUV when traversing down hills
  • Engine is positioned mid-ship, providing optimum front/rear balance
  • Ducts located by the cargo bed direct cooling air to the engine, while a heavy-duty liquid-cooling system keeps temperatures under control in the harshest conditions
  • Large-capacity radiator is compact and placed high in the chassis for protection against mud and debris; a large cooling fan increases cooling capacity in slow going
  • Engine weight is kept down using many advanced techniques, including carving lightening webs into the crank webs, using rare earth magnets, a small generator and paring excess material wherever possible
  • An ignition cut-out feature protects the brake system by preventing riding with the parking brake on
  • Large-diameter cooling system hoses maximize coolant flow and overall capacity, while the coolant reserve tank is located under the front cover for easy maintenance

Chassis/Suspension

  • Large-diameter thin-walled tubular steel frame combines high rigidity, light weight and mid-engine placement – a perfect combination for performance driving
  • Tubular cab frame meets SAE J1194, 7.1.1, 7.1.2, 7.4, and 7.5, requirements as a roll-over protective structure (ROPS)
  • Sport-focused suspension is designed for high-performance driving
  • Wide track helps provide additional stability but still allows the unit to fit in a standard pickup truck bed
  • Chassis has 11.6 inches of ground clearance, which strikes a perfect compromise between great low-CG handling and the ability to clear tough off-road obstacles
  • Narrow frame concept maximizes the length of the front and rear suspension’s lower A-arms for excellent handling performance and minimal geometry change throughout the suspension’s travel
  • Chassis serves up a near-perfect balance of bump absorption and taut steering
  • The tilt bed’s frame is engineered with plenty of rigidity for superb durability
  • Hinged, forward-tilting front hood and headlight assembly offers aggressive styling and allows quick access to the radiator and front suspension components for easy maintenance and suspension tuning
  • High-performance, single-chamber, preload-adjustable gas-charged Kayaba shocks provide excellent fade-resistant damping performance in the toughest conditions while providing 7.5 inches of plush, controlled wheel travel
  • Independent rear suspension provides the best balance of rider comfort and handling at high speeds
  • The preload-adjustable gas-charged Kayaba rear shocks feature piggyback reservoirs, further reducing the tendency of oil to froth under hard conditions
  • A torsion bar in back helps keep body roll to a minimum

Bodywork

  • Thermoplastic Olefin bodywork has a beautiful high-gloss finish that’s more scratch-resistant than polyethylene – so it stays great-looking longer
  • Engine and undercarriage guards provide maximum protection from rocks and debris
  • Teryx’s battery and electric parts are located higher and farther away from water and harm’s way
  • Dual 40W headlights and 8/27W dual taillights mean you’ll see and be seen

Quotes

Motorcycle USA----"Other than the 749cc 90-degree V-Twin engine, digital fuel injection system and the continuously variable transmission what more could you want in an RUV that will take you anywhere you want to go? Well how about the custom-order Hot-Rod flames graphic scheme that comes in two different color varietiees, a half-windscreen, rigid sun top and retractable dual cup holder. Yes, there you go."
