Packing a resilient electric starting four-stroke engine, five-speed transmission and steel cargo racks, Kawasaki’s Bayou® 250 ATV is synonymous with four wheel value. Whether it’s tasked with play or work, you can rest assured the tough and economical Bayou 250 will excel at the job.

Independent A-arms handle the front suspension chores and the Bayou 250 is the only ATV in its class to feature a semi-independent multi-link rear suspension. This design equals a smooth, compliant ride yet none of the complexity and maintenance requirements of a fully independent design.

Additional features include triple drum brakes, hitch bracket, easy-to-read fuel gauge and a 12-volt accessory connector to provide quick and easy power to your electrical accessories. Plus, its steel cargo racks can carry a combined weight of 110 pounds.
