KAWASAKI PRAIRIE® 360 ALL-TERRAIN VEHICLE
Two-wheel drive Prairie is ready for any work or recreation challenge

Kawasaki Motor Corp.The Prairie® 360 all-terrain vehicle (ATV) offers the same leading-edge design, easy-to-use automatic transmission, smooth ride and utilitarian conveniences of the popular Prairie 700 4x4, but in a less-expensive two-wheel drive package. Combined with its excellent ergonomics, the Prairie 360 is up for any challenge, whether it’s hunting, trail riding or helping with the chores.

Power for the Prairie 360 ATV comes from an air-cooled, single cylinder, fourstroke engine displacing 362cc. Power is then transferred through the Kawasaki Automatic Power-Drive System (KAPS), Kawasaki’s continuously variable transmission. With high and low forward gears plus reverse, KAPS enables the engine to operate in its optimal rpm range, giving the rider maximum torque regardless of speed or riding conditions.

The Prairie 360 ATV utilizes dependable shaft final drive, while stopping power is provided by dual front disc brakes and Kawasaki’s exclusive sealed, oil-bathed, multi-disc rear brake system.

For additional stopping power, the Prairie 360 features Kawasaki Engine Brake Control (K-EBC™). K-EBC uses engine compression to help slow the ATV in technical maneuvers such as crawling at low speeds over rocks or descending steep downgrades. The Prairie 360 rides on supple MacPherson strut front suspension with 6.7 inches of travel, while rear suspension duties are handled by a sporty, single-shock aluminum swingarm with 7.1 inches of travel. It also features a large, comfortable saddle and full-sized floor boards with adjustable footpegs for maximum comfort. Plus, steel front and rear cargo racks can carry a combined weight of 242 pounds. Other conveniences include powerful dual halogen headlights, and a hitch bracket is standard, so the rider can tow 1,100 pounds—the highest in its class.

As with all off-highway vehicle recreation, Kawasaki encourages ATV riders to ride responsibly and to respect the environment. Kawasaki will pay first-time buyers of a new Kawasaki ATV $100 for completing an ATV rider safety course conducted by the ATV Safety Institute (ASI). Interested consumers can call ASI toll-free at 800-887-2887.
