2013 Kawasaki Brute Force 650 4×4

Full Sized 4×4 with Great Power and Unbeatable Value

Smart buyers looking for maximum performance for their hard-earned dollars don-t need to look any further than their local Kawasaki dealer. Equipped with a great-sounding V-twin and a capable 4×4 system, the Brute Force® 650 4×4 ATV-s many talents are offered for about the same price as the 500cc ATVs from other manufacturer-s, making it a preferred choice among riders who demand premium performance, maximum strength and great value.

The Brute Force-s 633cc four-stroke V-twin delivers impressive torque and offers smooth V-twin power delivery that clearly places it a step above its mid-size competition. Dual 32mm Keihin carburetors feed the engine with clean air drawn from an intake located high on the frame.

The robust engine is mated to the Kawasaki Automatic Powerdrive System (KAPS) continuously variable transmission (CVT). With low and high range, neutral and reverse, this dependable transmission functions seamlessly, providing excellent control for both low- and high-speed work or recreational riding. Additionally, the Brute Force 650 4×4 can be started in any gear, as long as one of the brakes is applied.

Power is delivered to the wheels through dependable, low-maintenance shaft drive contained in a lightweight aluminum swingarm. The rider can select two- or four-wheel drive operation via a switch conveniently mounted on the right handle bar. In normal four-wheel drive mode, the front wheels provide extra traction for adverse terrain, while the limited-slip differential allows the rider to make tight turns and reduces steering effort.

When maximum traction is needed, the rider can utilize Kawasaki-s Variable Front Differential Control by pulling a lever on the left handlebar to send power to both front wheels. This is a definite advantage for riders encountering deep mud and slippery uphill trails or when traversing over large objects such as logs or rocks.

The cutting-edge Brute Force 650 4×4 braking system design is a combination of dual front disc brakes with dual-piston calipers and Kawasaki-s sealed, oil-bathed, multi-disc rear brake system. As an integrated part of the shaft drive, the rear braking system is sealed in the aluminum swingarm where it operates in an oil bath. This protects the brake from mud, dust and debris, and is virtually maintenance-free.

Enhancing the high-performance brakes is the Kawasaki Engine Brake Control system, which electronically monitors ground speed and uses the engine-s compression to help slow the Brute Force ATV under certain conditions.

A plush and controlled ride is a Kawasaki ATV forte, and the Brute Force 650 4×4 exemplifies this specialty, thanks to its MacPherson strut front suspension with 6.7 inches of travel and an aluminum swingarm out back featuring a shock with adjustable preload, a piggy-back reservoir and 7.2 inches of travel.

Additional comfort is provided by a large seat and adjustable footpegs mounted atop full-size floorboards. To help reduce unsprung weight and further enhance the smooth ride, the Brute Force rolls on lightweight aluminum wheels.

The modern, aggressively angled lines and high-gloss appearance of the scratch-resistant Thermoplastic Olefin (TPO) bodywork are complemented by bright cat-eye headlights. The fully digital instrumentation includes speedometer, odometer, dual resettable trip meters, clock, hour meter, fuel gauge and 2×4/4×4 indicators.

Leading the list of handy conveniences on the Brute Force 650 4×4 is a DC power outlet to provide quick and easy power for electrical accessories. A space inside the front guard easily accommodates a 3,000 pound-capacity winch from Warn or Superwinch.

The front and rear steel racks on the Brute Force 650 4×4 can carry a total of 264 pounds of cargo; a hitch bracket enables the ATV to tow up to 1,250 pounds. Owners can expand the versatility of their Brute Force ATV via the extensive line of Genuine Kawasaki Accessories, available through Kawasaki dealers.

As with all off-highway vehicle recreation, Kawasaki encourages ATV riders to ride responsibly and to respect the environment. Kawasaki will pay first-time buyers of a new Kawasaki ATV $100 for completing an ATV rider safety course conducted by the ATV Safety Institute (ASI). Interested consumers can call ASI toll-free at 800-887-2887.
