KAWASAKI PRAIRIE® 360 4X4 ALL-TERRAIN
Leading-edge 4x4 technology, superior off-road
Kawasaki Prairie® 360 4x4 all-terrain vehicle (ATV)
borrows its leadingedge four-wheel drive technology
from the all-conquering Prairie 700 4x4, providing
sportsmen and off-road adventurers with the performance
they demand for hunting, fishing and daylong trail
In fact, editors at 4-Wheel ATV
Action have praised the Prairie 360 4x4 as “a master
of challenging trail situations, a great handler
at low and high speeds, and a hard worker.”
Many of the nation’s ATV buyers
must agree, because the Prairie 360 4x4 ATV is one
of Kawasaki’s top-selling products in the United
Power for the Prairie 360 4x4 ATV
comes from an air-cooled, single cylinder, four-stroke
engine displacing 362cc. The 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 4x4 ATV utilizes
dependable shaft drive and gives the rider the added
benefit of selectable four-wheel drive operation.
At the flip of a switch, the Prairie 360 4x4 rider
can engage all four wheels for added traction in
adverse riding conditions. The Prairie 360 4x4 utilizes
a limited-slip front differential, so steering is
light and more precise. When maximum traction is
needed, the rider can pull a small lever on the
left handlebar to send power to both front wheels.
When maximum traction is no longer needed, the rider
simply releases the lever—the system is simple and
effective. Stopping power for the Prairie 360 4x4
is provided by dual front disc brakes and Kawasaki’s
exclusive sealed, oil-bathed, multi-disc rear brake
For added stopping power, the Prairie
360 4x4 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 4x4 ATV 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 Prairie 360 4x4 can tow 1,100
pounds – the highest weight load 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.
