Brute Force® 650 4x4 (Camo)
Camouflaged ATV offers big-bore performance at a
Brute Force 650 4x4 Camo
The Brute Force 650 4x4 takes the next step
with the addition of hunter-friendly REALTREE™
Hardwoods Green® HD™ camouflaged bodywork. With
its legendary V-twin engine, proven 4x4 system
and rugged styling wrapped in top-notch
camouflage — this mid-sized 4x4 all-terrain
vehicle (ATV) has an even more apparent value.
Moving the Brute Force 650 4x4 along is
Kawasaki’s popular liquid-cooled 633cc,
90-degree V-twin engine with single overhead
cams and four valves per cylinder. It is fed by
dual 32mm Keihin carburetors that draw fresh air
from a snorkel intake located high in the frame
near the steering head. This powerplant gives
the rider plenty of industry-leading torque and
an unrivaled smooth-running operation.
Matched to the robust V-twin engine is the fully
automatic Kawasaki Automatic Powerdrive System
(KAPS) continuously variable transmission (CVT).
With low and high forward, neutral and reverse
gears, this dependable transmission functions
seamlessly, providing excellent control for both
low- and high-speed work or recreational riding.
Additionally, with the brakes applied the Brute
Force 650 4x4 can be started in any gear.
Power is delivered to the wheels through
dependable, low-maintenance shaft drive. The
rider can select two-wheel or four-wheel drive
operation via the handy switch mounted on the
right handle bar. In normal four-wheel drive
mode, the front wheels provide extra traction
for adverse terrain, while the limited-slip
differential allows the rider to make tight
turns and reduces steering effort.
Best of all, with the Brute Force 650 4x4’s
Variable Front Differential Control, the rider
can deliver equal amounts of power to both front
wheels by simply pulling a small lever on the
left handlebar. This is a definite advantage for
riders encountering deep mud and slippery uphill
trails or when traversing over large objects
such as logs or rocks.
The cutting-edge Brute Force 650 4x4 braking
system design is a combination of dual front
disc brakes with dual-piston calipers and
Kawasaki’s sealed, oil-bathed, multi-disc rear
brake system. As an integrated part of the shaft
drive, the rear braking system is sealed in the
aluminum swingarm where it operates in an oil
bath. This protects the brake pads from mud,
dust and debris, and is virtually
Enhancing the high-performance brakes is the
Kawasaki Engine Brake Control system, which
electronically monitors ground speed and uses
the engine’s compression to help slow the Brute
Force ATV under certain conditions.
Plush and controlled rides are the Kawasaki 4x4
ATVs’ forte and the Brute Force 650 4x4
exemplifies this specialty. It does this with
MacPherson strut front suspension with 6.7
inches of travel and an aluminum swingarm
featuring a shock with adjustable preload, a
piggy-back reservoir and 7.2 inches of travel
for the rear suspension duties.
Additional comfort is provided by a large seat
and adjustable footpegs mounted atop full-size
floorboards. To help reduce unsprung weight and
further enhance the smooth ride, the Brute Force
ATV rolls on aluminum wheels.
Leading the conveniences on the Brute Force 650
4x4 is a DC power outlet to provide quick and
easy power for electrical accessories. Its fully
digital instrumentation includes speedometer,
odometer, dual resettable trip meters, clock,
hour meter, fuel gauge and 2x4/4x4 indicators.
The modern, aggressively angled lines of its
REALTREE™ Hardwoods Green® HD™ covered bodywork
are complemented by bright cat-eye headlights,
which make navigating dark forests easy.
Kawasaki engineers also provided space inside
the front guard to easily accommodate a
3000-pound capacity winch from Warn or
The camouflaged Brute Force 650 4x4 also comes
with front and rear steel racks that can carry a
total of 264 pounds of cargo, and a hitch
bracket that enables the ATV to tow up to 1,250
pounds. Owners can expand the versatility of the
Brute Force via the extensive line of Authentic
Kawasaki Accessories, available through Kawasaki
As with all off-highway vehicle recreation,
