2012 Kawasaki Teryx4
We'll ride the 2012 Kawasaki Teryx4 tomorrow at Brimstone.
We’re in Knoxville, Tennessee waiting for our first chance to drive the new four-seater UTV from Kawasaki. The 2012 Kawasaki Teryx4 isn’t going to revolutionize the RUV market, but it’s going to add a hell of a lot of flavor. The Teryx4 comes in a base model and also an electric power steering-equipped (EPS) version, which gives it some desirable features right out of the box. We’ll be testing both versions tomorrow at Brimstone OHV area.

The new family-sized Kawasaki uses the 749cc V-Twin engine that we’ve come to love in the standard two-seater. Fuel injection should give consistent fueling regardless of how humid it is tomorrow or how high we head into the mountains. A CVT belt transmission makes driving this vehicle just like piloting the family station wagon. The cargo bed will hold almost 250 pounds and it can tow 1300 pounds, which means it can tote around all the extra toys or supplies needed for any outing. The wheelbase is stretched to 86.1 inches and I’ll be interested to see how that affects the handling. I’m predicting that the Teryx4 is more planted on high-speed impacts. I love the way a longer chassis helps climb also.

Stay tuned. We’ll have all the details and first ride impressions asap.
