 2 rows of seats easily accommodate up to 4 people  
 Can be transformed from a 4-passenger to a 2-passenger off-road utility vehicle with the rear seat folded down and the cargo bed expanded to carry larger payload – from 400 pounds with 4 passengers to 800 pounds with 2 passengers  
 Rear bench seat includes retractable seatbelts and padded rear-passenger grab handle  
Liquid-cooled, V-twin Engine
 4-stroke, 617cc, industrial V-twin engine produces exceptional torque at low engine speeds  
 Modern 4-stroke design with overhead valves for efficient running and good fuel economy  
 Large-capacity radiator and fan maintain consistent engine temperatures, even in hot climates  
 Rubber engine mounts minimize vibration, noise and wear to maximize operation comfort and diminish fatigue  
Digital Fuel Injection
 Computer-controlled fuel injection system automatically compensates for atmospheric pressure, and air / engine temperature for easy, prompt starting under a variety of conditions  
 Automatic fast idle speed control eliminates the need for a choke, allowing the operator to drive off immediately after a cold engine start  
 Throttle bodies feature sub-throttle valves for optimum performance and drivability. The sub throttles are located behind the main throttle valves and are controlled by the ECU for smooth throttle response.  
 Automatic digital ignition system helps ensure smooth efficient operation  
 Maximum engine speed is controlled by the ECU, eliminating the need for a mechanical governor  
 Offers easy engine operation and reduced maintenance requirements  
Environmentally Friendly Emissions
 DFI® precision reduces fuel consumption and cuts exhaust emissions  
 Positive crankcase ventilation system sends blow-by gases to the intake tract to be burned in the engine  
 Muffler features a U.S. Forest Service-approved spark arrestor  
Cab Frame Air Intake
 Draws engine air and converter cooling air from the top of the cab frame where there is less dust, so the air filter stays cleaner longer  
Torque Converter Air Filter
 Efficient intake cooling fan draws plenty of air into the CVT  
 Special air cleaner with easily replaceable filter element cuts torque converter wear by cooling it with filtered air  
Kawasaki Automatic Power-Drive System (KAPS)
 Fully automatic continuously variable transmission (CVT) features forward high and low and reverse, and helps keep the engine in the right operating rpm for a variety of vehicle speeds, loads or terrain  
 The CVT has a wide spread of drive ratios for quick acceleration and ample pulling power  
 Tuned to accommodate higher loads  
 Large drive and driven torque converters maximize engagement area of the thick and strong drive belt for improved heat dissipation and added durability  
 High-flow cover helps cool the CVT while providing superb splash protection and waterproofing  
 Sheaves with high silicon type material for increased durability  
 Open sided drive pulley offers efficient cooling for longer belt life  
 Offers adjustable belt deflection  
4-wheel drive with 2-speed Transfer Case
 Selectable 4-wheel drive gives the operator traction options  
 Shift to 4-wheel drive and low range for maximum traction in adverse conditions, or select 2-wheel drive and high range to cut gear wear and increase fuel economy  
Dual Mode Differential
 Dual-mode rear differential can be locked for extra pulling power and maximum traction, or unlocked when negotiating delicate terrain  
Electric Power Steering (EPS)
 EPS system reduces steering effort, especially at low speeds when turning effort is greatest  
 The electric motor’s inertia significantly reduces bump steer and kickback to the steering wheel caused by shocks to the wheels for a more comfortable and controlled ride  
 Input from vehicle speed and torque sensors determine the amount of steering assistance required from the system’s motor  
 No power steering pump means no power loss from the engine  
 EPS only operates when the engine is running to keep from draining the battery  
Independent Strut-type Front Suspension
 MacPherson strut long-travel front suspension provides a comfortable ride and excellent load-carrying capability  
 Firm springs prevent bottoming and increase ground clearance  
DeDion Rear Suspension
 Overload-style leaf springs can handle heavy loads, yet provide a smooth ride when the cargo box is empty
