The Prairie® 360 4x4 uses an advanced four-wheel-drive system to increase the versatility and fun factor of the baseline Prairie 360 platform. This combination gives farmers, ranchers and recreational users a practical ATV that’s ready to get dirty, haul heavy loads, or explore challenging terrain.

Moving the Prairie 360 4x4 ATV along is the steadfast 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 conditions.

The Prairie 360 4x4 ATV utilizes reliable shaft drive and gives the rider the added benefit of selectable four-wheel drive operation. At the flip of a switch, the Prairie 360 4x4 rider can engage all four wheels for added traction in adverse riding conditions. The Prairie 360 4x4 has a limited-slip front differential, so steering remains light and precise. When maximum traction is needed, the rider can utilize Kawasaki’s Variable Front Differential Control by pulling a lever on the left handlebar to send power to both front wheels. When maximum traction is no longer needed, the rider simply releases the lever—a simple and effective system.

Stopping power on the Prairie 360 4x4 is provided by dual front disc brakes and Kawasaki’s sealed, oil-bathed, multi-disc rear brake system. Further speed control is provided by the Kawasaki Engine Brake Control, which uses engine compression to help slow the ATV under certain conditions.

The MacPherson strut front suspension and a single-shock aluminum swingarm rear suspension give the Prairie 360 4x4 a supple ride with 6.7 and 7.1 inches of travel front and rear, respectively. It also features a large, comfortable saddle and full-sized floor boards with adjustable footpegs for maximum comfort.

Its steel front and rear cargo racks can carry a combined weight of 242 pounds. Other conveniences include powerful dual halogen headlights, and a hitch bracket is standard, permitting the rider to tow 1,100 pounds—the highest towing capacity in its class. 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 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.
