Prairie 360 front suspension
Prairie 360 rear suspenion
A dependable two-wheel drive, mid-size
utility with great towing capacity that is both
fun and efficient to operate? That would be the
Prairie® 360 ATV. With its disc brakes, shaft
drive and CVT transmission, the Prairie 360 is
certainly easy to afford, yet offers premium
features and class leading function.
The Prairie 360 is powered by a 362cc
air-cooled, single cylinder, four-stroke engine
combined with 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, providing
maximum torque regardless of speed or riding
The Prairie 360 utilizes a trustworthy shaft
final drive, while dual front disc brakes and
Kawasaki’s sealed, oil-bathed, multi-disc rear
brake system bring the ATV to a controlled halt.
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
The Prairie 360 rides on supple MacPherson strut
suspension up front with 6.7 inches of travel,
while rear suspension duties are handled by a
sporty, single-shock aluminum swingarm
delivering 7.1 inches of travel. It also
features a large, comfortable saddle and
full-sized floor boards with adjustable footpegs
for maximum comfort.
Other conveniences include powerful dual halogen
headlights and steel front and rear cargo racks
that can carry a combined weight of 242 pounds.
A hitch bracket is also standard, permitting the
rider to tow 1,100 pounds. Owners can expand the
versatility of their Prairie 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
