2016 Kawasaki Brute Force 300 ATV

2016 Kawasaki Brute Force 300

Making light work of hard tasks, the entry-level Brute Force 300 has the features you’d expect from a much larger – and expensive – ATV.

CVT transmission, disc brakes front and rear plus a ready for work water-cooled engine are all designed to deliver.

Brute Force 300 - Key Features
The small Kawasaki ATV - Brute Force 300 - that is jammed full of big ATV features:
- Large carrying capacity
- Good storage volume
- Big Brute Force ATV styling
- Solid footboards
- Triple disc brakes
- Parking Brake
- Digital instrumentation
- Suitable suspension
- CVT transmission with centrifual clutch
- Water cooled engine

Carrying Performance
- Equipped with robust carriers front and rear, the Brute Force 300 can carry 20 kg at the front and 30 kg at the rear. Convenient built-in tie down hooks help secure loads.
- Enough capacity to carry everything you will need for a day on the property and on the trails.

Storage Space
- Front storage compartment is large enough to hold four 500 mL bottles – greater volume than on the flagship Brute Force 750 4x4 EPS. Rubber seal makes the compartment water-resistant.
- Side pocket built into the right fender offers convenient storage for small items - (previous year model colour shown)
Flagship Inspired Big ATV Styling
- Modelled after Kawasaki's flagship ATV (the KVF750 4x4 EPS) the KVF300 bears a distinct resemblance to its larger KVF brothers. Flush surface ergonomics contribute to both sport riding potential and ride comfort.
- Wide handlebar contributes to the roomy ergonomics, offering a comfortable position for larger riders. Internal grip weights and weighted bar-ends help reduce vibration. Half-waffle-type grips contribute to rider control as well as a sporty image.
- Large-volume bodywork (especially the fenders) gives the 300 the size of an ATV one class greater.

Solid Footboards
- Convenient and reassuring rider footboards.

Parking Brake
- Handy parking brake mechanically activates the rear brake caliper without placing any burden on the brake’s hydraulic system.

Thick Cushioned Seat
- The KVF300's thick seat urethane provides great cushion performance, contributing to rider comfort when seated.

- Towing capacity is a substantial 227kg. Space and mounting bracket for a Warn winch provided behind the front grill.
- Suspension tuned for accurate and light steering in all conditions

CVT Transmission
- The combination of a CVT transmission and centrifugal clutch offers a high potential for sporty fun riding as well as easy control.Transmission and belt converter ratios selected for optimum power
feeling and speed range appropriate for a small-displacement ATV.
- Ratios also ensure just the right amount of engine braking for a small-displacement 2WD ATV: too much engine braking and the rear wheels lock; too little, and controlled descents become difficult.

Digital Instrumentation
- Quality all-digital instrumentation is easy to read. Features include: speedometer, trip meter, fuel and temperature gauges, clock, and neutral, reverse and high-beam indicators.

Triple Disc Brakes
- Dual ø180 mm disc brakes gripped by single-piston calipers provide strong stopping power with good feel. A third disc brake at the rear, measuring ø180 mm and gripped by a single-piston caliper complements the dual discs at the front

Water Cooled Engine
- Liquid-cooled 271 cm³ SOHC, 2-valve engine with a bore and stroke of 72.7 mm x 65.2 mm delivers a strong 16 kW {22 PS} at 7,500 rpm maximum power and a substantial 22.3 N.m {2.3 kgf.m} at 6,500 rpm of torque.
