KAWASAKI BAYOU® 300 4X4 ATV
Four-wheel drive value for goal-oriented riders
and farmers are similar in that both want equipment
that will help them
accomplish their goals, whether it’s hauling a tree
stand to a secluded hunting spot or towing 12 bales
of hay to pasture. To that end, the Kawasaki Bayou
300 4x4 offers the dependability they want with
the value they appreciate.
The Bayou 300 4x4 is powered by a 290cc air-cooled
SOHC four-stroke engine that is matched to a dual-range,
five-speed-plus-reverse transmission with an automatic
clutch. Selecting the low range on the dual-range
transmission gives the rider the ability to climb
steep, rocky trails or crawl through muddy fields
at a slow, steady pace and also maximizes the effect
of the engine’s compression to help slow the Bayou
300 4x4 when descending steep hills. The transmission’s
high range gives the rider the ability to travel
at a pace more suitable to open spaces. With dependable
shaft drive providing power to the full-time four-wheel
drive and limited-slip front differential, the rider
can choose the perfect gear for field or trail conditions.
Stopping power for the Bayou 300 4x4 is provided
by dual front disc brakes and a sealed rear drum
brake. Front suspension duties are handled by dual
A-arms and dual shocks, while the rear suspension
features a compliant, semi-independent suspension
system with dual shocks.
For long hunting expeditions or field work, the
Bayou 300 4x4 has steel front and rear cargo racks
that can carry more than 200 pounds of gear. And
with an optional Kawasaki trailer, it can tow up
to 700 pounds.
Other features include electric start, an easy-to-read
fuel gauge, a snorkel air intake for deep water
crossings, and a mold-pin accessory connector that
makes hooking up electrical accessories quick and
Available in new Aztec Red or traditional Hunter
Green colors, the Bayou 300 4x4 has a suggested
