For drivers seeking maximum performance from their recreation utility vehicle (RUV), the Teryx™ 750 FI 4×4 Sport, with its lightweight aluminum wheels controlled by fully adjustable sport suspension at all four corners, offers performance, comfort and stability that no other RUV can touch. The evolution of this incredibly adaptable vehicle continues for 2010: An aggressive new front end with a forward-tilting hood allows front suspension and cooling system access and eases maintenance. Upgrades to the mighty V-twin’s cooling system enhance long-term reliability, and an even sturdier tilting bed out back provides even greater durability. In addition, a host of detail improvements for more efficient production and vehicle longevity are designed to do what Kawasaki has always done: keep the performance high while keeping the bottom line low.
Power, is of course, at the heart of the matter when it comes to a performance machine like the Teryx Sport, and when it comes to sheer thrust no other RUV can touch this one’s 749cc 90-degree 8-valve V-twin: Not only is this engine plenty powerful, its 90-degree configuration gives it perfect primary balance, for unmatched smoothness at any rpm—and a great exhaust note that sets the Teryx apart from lesser RUVs.
For 2010, upgrades to the engine’s cooling system add even more reliability: The radiator’s cooling fan (which switches on automatically when needed) is now larger and moves a greater volume of air, while a larger-diameter hose allows greater coolant flow, to help keep the engine cool when the going gets slow and rough. Also, the coolant catch tank has been moved to the front of the machine, where it’s easily accessible under the very cool new tilt front end.
