"The Kawasaki Mule 600 is a compact but rugged and durable side-by-side that fits in the bed of a full size truck and can take trails and corners like a pro. Haul your gear, wood, rock or hay in the cargo bed and remove up to 1,100 pounds of debris by towing it out of your way. The Kawasaki Mule 600 is easy to handle with the rack and pinion steering, has a tilting cargo bed for easy unloading and has a limited speed of 25 miles per hour. It now comes in the new Timberline Green color along with the Dark Royal Red option." — Motorcycle USA

"MULE 600’s compact footprint allows it to fit into the bed of a full-sized pickup, and its single-cylinder engine will keep going strong for a long time to come. Complementing this emphasis on toughness is an easy-to-operate continuously variable transmission resting atop a sturdy, steel tube frame that also hosts a dual-mode rear differential, comfy-riding independent front suspension and beefy hydraulic brakes. And best of all, it accomplishes all this without breaking the bank." — Beartooth Kawasaki
