Kawasaki Motor Corp.Nearly half of all sport-utility ATV buyers prefer a 300cc-class engine, so Kawasaki created a Prairie model for this important group of buyers. The Prairie 300 4x4 is powered by a dependable 290cc, air-cooled, single over-head cam four-stroke engine and has all-shaft four-wheel drive that features a limited-slip front differential, so tight turns are made easier in heavily wooded areas while traction is improved on wet or muddy trails. And like its bigger siblings, the Prairie 300 4x4 features the Kawasaki Automatic Power-Drive System (KAPS), so no shifting is required once the operator selects High or Low range or reverse.

Prairie 300 4x4The Prairie 300 4x4 excels when hauling a load. The large front and rear composite cargo racks are rustproof and can carry nearly 250 pounds, while the standard tow hitch allows the operator to attach a trailer and tow up to 1,100 pounds. Other features include a large saddle, so long rides are more comfortable, and full-sized floorboards with adjustable integrated footpegs with drainage holes to help keep the rider’s boots dry.

The Prairie 300 4x4 has a suggested retail price of $5,399. Some of the special features and benefits found on the Prairie 300 4x4 include:
