The Kawasaki Brute Force 300 was carefully designed to be able to withstand the toughest punishment and is reliable to the core, strong and easy to handle.

At the heart of the Kawasaki Brute Force 300 sits a strong, liquid - cooled, 271 cc, four - stroke engine which was especially developed to deliver generous low-end and mid-range power. The engine’s power is transferred to the ground by means of a continuously variable transmission (CVT) with centrifugal clutch which is based on the same general design used for the Brute Force 750 4x4i EPS. Thanks to its potent engine, the ATV can tow up to 500 lb.

You also get a heavy-duty steel-tube frame, triple-disc brakes, special Maxxis tires and a pair of practical racks in front and back which can hold 44 and 66 lb, respectively.

Prices start from $4,299.
