2009 Kawasaki Teryx™ 750 FI 4x4 Sport

Features and Benefits

High-performance 749cc V-Twin Engine

  • Liquid-cooled, SOHC, fuel-injected, 90-degree V-twin is the most powerful engine in its class
  • Ample torque output contributes to the Teryx’s superb acceleration and allows powerslides on command
  • Oversquare design with an 85mm bore x 66mm stroke help enable reliable high-rpm operation
  • The 90° V-Twin configuration offers perfect primary balance, resulting in low engine vibration
  • Aluminum cylinders are Electrofusion-plated for light weight, long wear and excellent heat dispersion
  • Engine can be started in any gear when the brakes are applied
  • Electronically controlled Kawasaki Engine Brake Control helps to slow the RUV when descending steep hills
  • Positioned mid-ship for optimum front/rear balance – good for power slides and cornering control
  • Ducts located by the cargo bed direct cooling air to the engine
  • Radiator is compact and placed high in the chassis for maximum protection against mud and debris

Digital Fuel Injection system

  • High output 750cc V-twin engine includes a digital fuel injection (DFI) system, which enhances throttle response and automatically adjusts for changes in temperature and altitude
  • DFI system (controlled by a 32-bit CPU) continually monitors coolant temperature, air intake temperature, throttle position, air intake pressure, vehicle speed and crankshaft angle to automatically meter out the ideal amount of fuel via two 34mm throttle bodies for extremely stable power delivery – regardless of the conditions
  • Quick and precise fuel delivery makes the Teryx Sport’s engine response sharper than ever
  • DFI system permits easy engine starting at low temperature and utilizes an Automatic Idle Speed Control and Automatic Fast Idle function to ensure smooth starting and engine warm-up
  • High-pressure fuel pump is located inside the tank and features a unique reservoir chamber at the bottom of the pump housing, to ensure air does not get into the fuel system
  • Teryx-specific throttle body sizes, engine timing and ignition timing are set for increased low and mid-range torque as well as improved response at higher rpm

Continuously Variable Transmission

  • Featuring a high and low range, plus reverse, the CVT provides a very direct feel from the engine and nearly instantaneous acceleration – ideal characteristics for sport riding
  • Transmission utilizes a high-grade belt that’s highly durable and designed to handle the high output of the engine
  • CVT Belt Protection System helps prevent tire freewheel, and reduce belt overloading when rock-crawling, by adding a Throttle Position Sensor (TPS) to the CVT’s sensor array

Selectable Four-wheel-drive / Variable Front Differential Control

  • Rider can select two- or four-wheel-drive operation by pressing a switch located on the dash
  • Electrically “selectable” 2WD/4WD system engages instantly
  • Limited-slip front differential reduces steering effort under normal four-wheel drive operation, while Variable Front Differential Control permits rider to distribute torque equally to left and right front wheels for maximum traction via a hand lever located between the seats
  • Rear wheels are locked and always turning together for controllable power slides

Wide-body Chassis

  • Large-diameter thin-walled tubular steel frame offers high rigidity – a perfect base for performance riding
  • Meets SAE requirements as a roll-over protective structure (ROPS)
  • Wide track helps provide additional stability
  • Chassis has 11.7 inches of ground clearance for clearing tough off-road obstacles
  • Chassis offers the right balance of bump absorption while limiting understeer
  • Able to tackle corners in either a drift or grip style and operate beyond the limits of its rivals

Sport-focused Suspension

  • Utilizes long dual front A-arm suspension and narrow frame concept to maximize the length of the front and rear suspension’s lower A-arms, contributing to excellent road-handling performance
  • Features increased rear suspension damping and spring rate and decreased stabilizer stiffness to contribute to improved traction and handling
  • First with sport performance-focused suspension – low-speed comfort not a main design priority
  • High-performance, single-chamber, adjustable gas-charged Kayaba shocks offer excellent fade-resistant damping performance, even in hard conditions, while providing 7.5 inches of travel
  • Both front and rear shocks are preload-adjustable and feature piggy-back reservoirs, further reducing the tendency of oil to froth under hard conditions
  • Independent rear suspension provides the best balance of rider comfort and handling at high speeds

High-performance Brakes

  • Dual front 200mm disc brakes gripped by 27mm twin-piston calipers and Kawasaki’s sealed, oil-bathed, multi-disc rear brake system provide maximum stopping power in all conditions
  • Compact size of the rear brake design contributes to a favorable ground clearance
  • Front discs are recessed in wheels for protection from debris, while the rigid-mount calipers deliver enhanced brake feel and increased control

Large 26-inch Tires

  • 26-inch MAXXIS tires were specifically developed for the Teryx to maximize forward traction while offering excellent characteristics for both aggressive cornering and sliding
  • Mounted on 12-inch rims, the largest tires available in the RUV category provide good rough terrain performance and obstacle clearance

Ergonomics

  • Plenty of shoulder and legroom to comfortably accommodate two adults
  • Form-fitting bucket seats and retractable three-point seatbelts hold rider and passenger firmly in place
  • Steering wheel positioned low for optimum control when sport riding
  • Dual retractable cup holders

Multi-Function Digital Display

  • Includes a digital fuel gauge, speedometer, clock, dual trip meters plus parking, 4WD, water temperature and fuel injection warning indicators
  • Additional indicator lamps include CVT belt warning, neutral, reverse and oil pressure warning

Bodywork

  • Revised rear mud guard shape
  • Body work is made of high-gloss scratch-resistant Thermo-Plastic Olefin
  • Steel floor boards and engine guards for maximum protection
  • Battery and electric parts located higher, further out of the way of water and mud
  • Dual 40W headlights and 8/27W dual taillights

Cargo Capability

  • Cargo bed offers substantial carrying capacity with a 500 lb capacity, tie down hooks in all four corners, standard cargo net and sizeable dimensions
  • Gas-assisted tilting cargo bed facilitates dumping cargo and is now a standard feature on all Teryx models

Range / Transportability

  • Large 7.4 gal. (28L) fuel tank offers the range for plenty of fun
  • Teryx is compact enough to fit in the bed of most full-size pickup trucks
