Brute Force® 750 4x4i EPS Wins Field & Stream "Best of the Best" award for 2011
The 2012 Kawasaki Brute Force® 750 4x4i earned the title "Best of the Best" from the editors at Field & Stream magazine.

ATV Action Magazine Review: 2012 Brute Force® 750 4x4i EPS
"Two- or four-wheel drive operation is selectable by simply pressing a button on the handlebar. In four-wheel drive mode, the Brute Force ATV utilizes the limited-slip front differential to help maintain steering response and ease steering effort at the bars. The rider can manage the amount of power to both front wheels with Kawasaki's Variable Front Differential Control by using a small control lever on the left handlebar. It's a definite advantage when traversing deep mud, slippery uphill trails or large logs or rocks..."

Off-Road.com Review: 2012 Brute Force® 750 4x4i EPS
"The ride is what it’s all about at the end of the day, and we had our turn to really tweak up the Kawasaki Brute Force 750 4X4i EPS just to see if the hype was justified. The rugged terrain in the Timber Mountain OHV ride area took us higher and higher until we could almost see heaven. The Brute Force has a very comfortable saddle, and even though I ride standing most of the time it was like a really nice recliner each time I did sit down. Every control was just within reach, and for my riding style it fit perfectly. The independent suspension both front and rear helped soak up the harshest areas on the trail while keeping the quad stable, and even with the changes to the springs on the suspension the machine still rode very well..."

ATV.com Review: 2012 Brute Force® 750 4x4i EPS
"Our test area near Medford, Ore. is called Timber Mountain OHV and even though it had many challenges it was no match for the 2012 Brute Force 750. Ascending into the higher elevations of Timber Mountain the air was very cool and the Brute Force powerplant seemed to love it. This is a direct reflection on the Brute Force fuel injection and its ability to adjust to any altitude..."

ATV Connection Review: 2012 Brute Force® 750 4x4i EPS
"You can say what you want about Fuel Injection, but if all Fuel Injected engines are going to perform like this you can put us in the “fan” camp. The engine never stumbled, it would pull from low rpm’s without a murmur, response was instant and the power would hit harder than the Pittsburg Steelers linemen after they have finished a case of beer each..."

ATV Source Review: 2012 Brute Force® 750 4x4i EPS
"One might think a utility quad this big and powerful would be hard to ride hard. You would usually be right, but the light throttle feel and electric power steering on the Brute Force help reduce fatigue, letting you spend more time playing (or working) instead of resting..."

ATVOnDemand Review: 2012 Brute Force® 750 4x4i EPS
"At 693 pounds, we believe the Brute Force has the lightest curb weight of any power-steering equipped v-twin. It is a bit lighter than the Can-Am 800 and is around 120 pounds lighter than the Polaris XP 850 or Arctic Cat’s 1000 LTD. When you ride the other twin cylinder big bores, you feel as though you are along for the ride. The Brute Force feels lighter and more maneuverable. This is due, in part, to its lighter curb weight, lower seat height of 35.8 inches, and well laid-out ergonomics , which aid in control..."

Motorcycle-USA.com 1st Ride Review: 2012 Brute Force® 750 4x4i EPS
"Kawasaki has done a magnificent job of making a big-bore ATV that is capable of being pretty sporty when desired and equally happy tractoring along at a more comfortable pace. With selectable 4-wheel-drive, a massive V-Twin and tough exterior, the host of upgrades for 2012 adds up to an impressive machine..."

Prairie® 360 4X4
Prairie 360 4x4 ATV Tested in ATV Rider Magazine
The rear brake lever on the bar was a plus in our books. In all actuality, the same could be said for the steering, shocks and handling. Everything just seemed to work well all the way across the board. The use of a rear axle adds a nice degree of slide-ability and just adds to the all-around fun feel of the package.

"Faster than a speeding bullet. Well, technically it’s not, but for trail riding, it’s about as quick as you want it to be. Gobs and gobs of monstrous torque and lightning quick throttle response (thanks to the new EFI system) will keep the hair on the back of your neck in permanent shock mode. "

ATV Sport: KFX450R
"This aluminum framed 4 wheeled E-Ticket ride is aimed squarely at the serious racing set. Whether your idea of fun is destroying the berms with your buddies at your favorite track or running down a technical section of trail solo, this ATV is the one for you. From the ground up, from it's reinforced aluminum rims to it's Renthal tm handlebars, this Kawasaki means business."

ATV Rider Magazine Review: Kawasaki KFX450
"...we weren’t just smitten by the massive amount of aluminum in the frame (although billet is pretty sweet-looking), Renthal Fat Bars, easy and compact parking brake, one-handed handlebar-mounted reverse lever, two-piece lapped fenders with removable outer sections, gripper seat, KMM reinforced aluminum rear wheels, adjustable KYB shocks and three color options. Sure, these components play a big role in the KFX’s superb feel and performance, but it was the powerplant and chassis duo that truly hooked us here."
