It’s simple to see why the KFX®700 all-terrain vehicle (ATV) continues to be a hit with off-roaders. The winning formula of Kawasaki’s powerful V-twin engine and automatic transmission coupled with a racing-style chassis adds up to a sport ATV that offers aggressive all-day riding that is fun and easy for a wide range of riders.

At the heart of the KFX700’s power and performance is its engine. The liquid-cooled, 697cc, four-stroke, 90-degree V-twin is matched to a performance-tuned continuously variable automatic transmission. The combination eliminates shifting concerns because it’s in the optimum powerband at all times. This allows the rider to focus even more attention on choosing good lines, whether it’s on the race track or trail.

Other features include shaft drive, powerful dual front disc brakes and Kawasaki’s sealed, oil-bathed, multi-disc rear brake system. The KFX700 also features a racing-inspired single lower front frame tube –the design preferred by cross-country ATV racers.

Up front the dual A-arms feature 9.3 inches of travel while providing optimum handling with minimal “tire scrub” during up-and-down suspension travel. Rear suspension duties are handled by a motocross-inspired alloy swingarm with a piggy-back reservoir shock and 7.9 inches of travel. The KFX700 is shod with the ITP® Holeshot® tires to gain maximum traction and maneuverability.

Features

  • 697cc V-twin four-stroke engine with dual Keihin downdraft carburetors provide maximum torque while 90-degree cylinder offset produces perfect primary balance to minimize vibration

  • Unitized swingarm also features integrated shaft drive and Kawasaki’s sealed multi-disc brake assembly for superior ground clearance and fade-free braking power
  •  Low-mounted 3.2-gallon fuel tank helps keep the center of gravity low for enhanced handling
