Oversized floor-boards help keep the water and debris away from our feet and work great during water crossings.
The CVT transmission operated flawlessly on the Brute Force 650 and impressed us from the very start.
The Brute Force 650 comes equipped with Dual A-Arm independent front suspension and dual piston front disc brakes.
Fully independent rear suspension offers a comfortable ride in any terrain.
The left handlebar controls include light selection, start button, parking brake and the adjustable front differential lock.
Available in Dark Royal Red, this Brute Force 650 is a great looking machine with its unique front guard design.
The Brute Force 650 4x4i is offered at a sensible price and looks good doing it.
Our Patrol riding gear provided by Fly Racing worked great all day in the wet muddy terrain keeping us dry and cool.
The Anthracite Outdoor Adventure Area in Pennsylvania had more than enough trails and water crossings to take the Brute Force 650 to its limits.
With the outdoor adventure rider in mind, Kawasaki’s Variable Limited-Slip Front Differential was a huge advantage when crossing deep muddy waters.
Playing around on the Brute Force is one thing, but we suspect it will meet any rider’s needs looking for a machine to work around the property.
The electronic 2WD and 4WD selector located on the left handlebar is convenient and allowed us to switch back and forth with the flip of a switch.
The Thermoplastic Olefin bodywork is finished in high gloss and has a rugged look adding to the stylish appeal of the Brute Force 650.
The Brute Force 650 leads the way in open-class sport-utility ATV’s offering more performance for the price.
The Brute Force 650 has a wheel base of 50.6 inches, a minimum turning radius of 10.5 feet and is outfitted with Dunlop AT25 tires.
With a curb weight of 653 pounds, the Brute Force is on the low end in weight, making it easier to muscle through technical sections on the trail.
The digital display is armed with speedo, odometer, twin trip meters, clock, hour meter and a fuel gauge. Positioned at an angle to reduce sun glare, the display was easy to read and set at a good visible location.
The front and rear racks are low profile and can carry a combined weight of 264 pounds.
The rear independent suspension performed well at high speeds through rocky terrain.
Although we didn’t get to ride at night, the Brute Force comes with two 40W headlights to guide you through the darkness.
Kawasaki’s engine brake control is perfect on the steep downhills and engages smoothly in any braking situation.
The Brute Force 650 delivers impressive power and torque. We found ourselves constantly looking for jumps and hill climbs to use the throttle on.
