  • Compact engine design features a 35-degree cylinder angle for ground clearance and lower seat height for quick steering and maneuverability.
  • Electronic fuel injection provides a perfect fuel/air mixture regard-less of temperature or altitude, and makes cold starts a snap.
  • Gear-driven crankshaft balancer shaft and new design rubber-damper engine mounts reduce vibration.
    Ceramic-composite cylinder liners provide outstanding durability and heat dissipation; forged piston is light and strong and rides a carburized, chrome-moly connecting rod.
  • Two-lobe overhead cam and a pair of needle-roller rocker arms reduce friction by 50 percent for increased fuel efficiency and torque.
  • Mikuni fuel injection with 44mm bore and throttle position sensor means easy cold starts and flawless fuel delivery in nearly any condition.
  • Pushbutton electric starting with seven-disk torque-limiting damper assembly to protect the starter motor.
  • Straight driveshaft layout eliminates U-joints for reduced friction, vibration and maintenance.
  • Stainless steel exhaust system features aluminum heat shields and a screen-type spark arrestor for great power with minimum noise output.
  • High-capacity aluminum radiator with fan-assist delivers maximum cooling efficiency and is positioned high in the frame for optimal protection.
  • Automatic cam chain tensioner reduces engine maintenance and helps extend engine life.
  • Five-position shift lever with H, L, N, R and P gates for positive Ultramatic transmission operation.
  • Override button allows engine to make maximum rpm in full Diff Lock mode.
  • Electronic servo-activated 2WD/4WD/Diff Lock via the On-Command™ system.
  • Sealed drive case keeps out water and debris to help prevent belt from slipping.

Chassis/Suspension:

  • Comfortable chassis provides outstanding handling and maneuverability.
  • Lay-down-style front suspension A-arms provide outstanding ground clearance.
  • Five-way preload adjustable shocks provide a controlled, comfortable ride whatever the load or trail conditions.
  • Four-wheel hydraulic disc brakes serve up consistent, long-lasting braking power under all sorts of nasty conditions.
  • Electronic power steering varies assist according to speed and rpm for increased comfort and incredible maneuverability—even in 4WD.
  • 5.3-gallon fuel tank is located under the seat for excellent mass centralization and handling; there’s a 4.8-liter waterproof storage compartment under there, too.
  • 11.8 inches of ground clearance and full-length composite skid plate deliver maximum underbelly protection while enhancing terrainability.
  • 25x8-12 front and 25x10-12 rear Dunlop tires provide responsive steering and handling and excellent comfort.
