2006 KAWASAKI BRUTE FORCE™
KAWASAKI’S FLAGSHIP 4X4 RETURNS IN STUNNING NEW
Brute Force™ 750 4x4i, the ultimate 4x4 all-terrain
vehicle (ATV) powered by Kawasaki’s awe-inspiring
V-twin engine, has returned for 2006 and it’s sporting
an all-new color.
In addition to popular Aztec Red
and Woodsman Green, and two camouflage patterns,
the Brute Force 750 4x4i is now available in all-new
Galaxy Silver, further highlighting the aggressive
angular lines of this Kawasaki flagship.
Simply put, the Brute Force 750
4x4i is the most powerful, high-performance model
in its class, offering a superior balance of rider
comfort and convenience features. Built with adventure
enthusiasts and sportsmen in mind, it’s cloaked
in aggressive bodywork and powered by the largest
V-twin engine on market, and it utilizes a fully
independent rear suspension (IRS) system.
The Brute Force 750 4x4i is powered
by Kawasaki’s revolutionary 90-degree, four-stroke
V-twin engine. Displacing 749cc, it features Electrofusion-plated
aluminum cylinders, a reverse-facing air intake,
34mm downdraft carburetors, straight intake tracts,
and four valves per cylinder. It also features a
high-efficiency radiator mounted high in the chassis
where it is best protected from mud and debris.
To assist with braking, the engine
features the Kawasaki Engine Brake Control, which
helps to slow the ATV when traversing steep downhills.
The Brute Force 750 4x4i transfers
power from its V-twin engine to the wheels through
a continuously variable transmission (CVT) featuring
high and low range, plus reverse, and by pressing
a button on the handlebar, the rider can also select
two- or four-wheel-drive operation.
In four-wheel-drive mode, the Brute
Force utilizes a limited-slip front differential,
which eases steering effort under most riding conditions.
The rider can also engage the Variable Front Differential
Control to deliver torque equally to the right and
left front wheels for maximum traction.
The front drive shafts of the Brute
Force feature ATV Cardan joints – an industry first.
Similar to U-joints, Cardan joints help absorb torque
fluctuations to the drive shaft, and its lightweight
design helps to reduce vibration.
The rear final gear case and sealed
rear braking system have been redesigned in conjunction
with the new IRS. Smaller and more compact, the
gear case is extremely rugged and efficient.
Dual front discs and Kawasaki’s
highly acclaimed sealed rear braking system provide
maximum stopping power for the Brute Force 750 4x4i.
The rear braking system’s internal components are
completely sealed to protect them from mud, dust
and debris, and its compact size provides for more
ground clearance than a conventional rear disc brake
Brute Force 750 4x4i utilizes a simple, yet sturdy
double-cradle frame made of tubular steel, and features
front dual A-arms and IRS. The front dual A-arms
have adjustable shocks with 6.7 inches of travel,
while the IRS features a leading torsion bar and
provides 7.9 inches of travel. By utilizing a combination
of needle bearings and ball joints in the lower
rear A-arms, the IRS provides smooth suspension
action for high stability and excellent rider comfort.
The Brute Force 750 4x4i gives the
rider 10.6 inches of ground clearance and it rides
on aggressive 12-inch tires. Rider position on the
Brute Force 750 4x4i is upright and comfortable,
enhancing the rider’s ability to scan the horizon,
and the automotive-style instrument panel is positioned
vertically to make it easy to read.
The bodywork and front grille of
the Brute Force are big, strong and
tough-looking. Made of
Thermo-Plastic Olefin, the plastic has a high-gloss
appearance and is scratch-resistant.
Other features include the ATV industry’s
first four-bulb headlights, and storage compartments
located in the left and right front fenders.
The Brute Force 750 4x4i features
full-sized floorboards and a large, comfortable
seat. To enhance chassis balance, the large 5.4-gallon
fuel tank is positioned beneath the seat.
The Brute Force can carry a combined
weight of 264 pounds on its cargo racks and has
a tow rating of 1,250 pounds.
