Dressed in REALTREE™ Hardwoods Green® HD™, the Kawasaki Brute Force® 650 4x4i sport utility all-terrain vehicle (ATV) is the hunter’s choice for size, capability and handling. This versatile ATV provides such a plush ride with its competent front and rear independent suspension, superb four-wheel drive and powerful V-twin engine, that it threatens to make hunting almost too easy.

Thanks to its 633cc 90-degree, liquid-cooled four-stroke powerplant, this ATV shines when the going gets tough. With ample low-to-mid range torque and enough high rpm power to meet the challenges presented by today’s outdoor sportsmen. Less weight is always a good thing. To keep the pounds off, Kawasaki engineers used aluminum in the construction of the front exhaust pipe cover, two-piece center exhaust pipe cover, and the muffler cover. Among the other features designed into the Brute Force 650 4x4i to amplify its power-to-weight ratio are drilled transmission gears to lower their overall weight.

The Brute Force 650 4x4i gets the power from its V-twin engine to the wheels through a fully automatic, dual range 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 it can be started in any gear.

Two- or four-wheel drive is selectable by simply pressing a handlebar-mounted button. In four-wheel drive, the rider can manage the amount of power to both front wheels with Kawasaki’s Variable Front Differential Control by simply pulling a small lever on the left handlebar. This is a definite advantage for riders traversing deep mud, slippery uphill trails or large objects such as logs or rocks.
The optimized caster angle for the front A-arms means the Brute Force 650 4x4i has light and responsive steering as well as excellent ground-following abilities. Shock absorber spring rates and initial preload settings for both front and rear are aimed at excellent ride comfort and are enhanced via the plush urethane seat foam.

It may be the slightly smaller one in Kawasaki’s stable of IRS-equipped ATVs, but it doesn’t sacrifice anything in the “looks” department. Like its brethren, the rugged, take-on-anything styling of the Brute Force 650 4x4i will both attract onlookers and satisfy owners.

Stopping the 650 4x4i is a combination of dual 200mm front discs and Kawasaki’s sealed, oil-bathed, multi-disc rear brake system. As an integrated part of the shaft drive, the enclosed 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 maintenance-free.

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 650 4x4i under certain conditions.

The able ATV can pull a hefty 1,250 pounds, and it can carry a combined 264 pounds on its front and rear racks. Owners can expand the versatility of their Brute Force ATV via the extensive line of Authentic Kawasaki Accessories, available through Kawasaki dealers.
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.
