2006 KAWASAKI PRAIRIE_ 360 ATV
HARD-WORKING AND COMFORTABLE FOR WORK OR PLAY

The Prairie 360 provides the same comfortable ride and towing capacity of its 4x4 sibling, but this hard-working Kawasaki puts power to the ground through shaftdriven two-wheel drive.

Power for the Prairie 360 ATV comes from an air-cooled, single cylinder, fourstroke engine displacing 362cc. Power is then transferred through Kawasaki's continuously variable transmission (CVT). With high and low forward gears plus reverse, the CVT 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 sealed, oil-bathed, multi-disc rear
brake system.

For additional stopping power, the Prairie 360 features the Kawasaki Engine Brake Control, which 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 fullsized 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 towing capacity in its class.

Authentic Kawasaki Accessories are available through Kawasaki dealers or they can be purchased on the Internet at www.kawasaki.com.

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.
