Kawasaki Motor Corp.For explorers who prefer two-wheel drive, the Prairie 400 is the ATV of choice. It shares the same liquid-cooled, 391cc, single over-head cam, 4-valve four-stroke engine as its four-wheel drive sibling and utilizes the Kawasaki Automatic Power-Drive System (KAPS) that requires no shifting once the transmission is placed into High or Low range or reverse. Other features include dual front disc brakes, MacPherson strut front suspension, steel cargo racks that can carry nearly 250 pounds, and a towing capability of 1,100 pounds.

Prairie 400The Prairie 400 ATV has a comfortable saddle for day-long excursions, full-sized floorboards with extra large drainage holes to help keep the rider’s feet dry and new raised footpegs for extra grip. It also has a 12V accessory socket at the base of the handlebars, so the rider can recharge a cell phone or a GPS unit to find the most interesting way back to base camp.

The Prairie 400 has a suggested retail price of $5,199. Some of the special features and benefits found on the Prairie 400 include:
