Brute Force™ 750 4x4i
The Brute Force™ 750 4x4i, the ultimate 4x4 all-terrain vehicle (ATV) powered by Kawasaki’s awe-inspiring V-twin engine, has returned for 2006 and it’s sporting an all-new color.
In addition to popular Aztec Red and Woodsman Green, and two camouflage patterns, the Brute Force 750 4x4i is now available in all-new Galaxy Silver, further highlighting the aggressive angular lines of this Kawasaki flagship.
Simply put, the Brute Force 750 4x4i is the most powerful, high-performance model in its class, offering a superior balance of rider comfort and convenience features. Built with adventure enthusiasts and sportsmen in mind, it’s cloaked in aggressive bodywork and powered by the largest V-twin engine on market, and it utilizes a fully independent rear suspension (IRS) system.
The Brute Force 750 4x4i is powered by Kawasaki’s revolutionary 90-degree, four-stroke V-twin engine. Displacing 749cc, it features Electrofusion-plated aluminum cylinders, a reverse-facing air intake, 34mm downdraft carburetors, straight intake tracts, and four valves per cylinder. It also features a high-efficiency radiator mounted high in the chassis where it is best protected from mud and debris.
To assist with braking, the engine features the Kawasaki Engine Brake Control, which helps to slow the ATV when traversing steep downhills.
The Brute Force 750 4x4i transfers power from its V-twin engine to the wheels through a continuously variable transmission (CVT) featuring high and low range, plus reverse, and by pressing a button on the handlebar, the rider can also select two- or four-wheel-drive operation.
In four-wheel-drive mode, the Brute Force utilizes a limited-slip front differential, which eases steering effort under most riding conditions. The rider can also engage the Variable Front Differential Control to deliver torque equally to the right and left front wheels for maximum traction.
The front drive shafts of the Brute Force feature ATV Cardan joints – an industry first. Similar to U-joints, Cardan joints help absorb torque fluctuations to the drive shaft, and its lightweight design helps to reduce vibration.
The rear final gear case and sealed rear braking system have been redesigned in conjunction with the new IRS. Smaller and more compact, the gear case is extremely rugged and efficient.
Dual front discs and Kawasaki’s highly acclaimed sealed rear braking system provide maximum stopping power for the Brute Force 750 4x4i. The rear braking system’s internal components are completely sealed to protect them from mud, dust and debris, and its compact size provides for more ground clearance than a conventional rear disc brake system.
The Brute Force 750 4x4i utilizes a simple, yet sturdy double-cradle frame made of tubular steel, and features front dual A-arms and IRS. The front dual A-arms have adjustable shocks with 6.7 inches of travel, while the IRS features a leading torsion bar and provides 7.9 inches of travel. By utilizing a combination of needle bearings and ball joints in the lower rear A-arms, the IRS provides smooth suspension action for high stability and excellent rider comfort.
The Brute Force 750 4x4i gives the rider 10.6 inches of ground clearance and it rides on 12-inch wheels shod with tires that feature aggressive tread blocks. Rider position on the Brute Force 750 4x4i is upright and comfortable, enhancing the rider’s ability to scan the horizon, and the automotive-style instrument panel is positioned vertically to make it easy to read.
The bodywork and front grille of the Brute Force are big, strong and tough-looking. Made of Thermo-Plastic Olefin, the plastic has a high-gloss appearance and is scratch-resistant.
Other features include the ATV industry’s first four-bulb headlights, and storage compartments located in the left and right front fenders.
The Brute Force 750 4x4i features full-sized floorboards and a large, comfortable seat. To enhance chassis balance, the large 5.4-gallon fuel tank is positioned beneath the seat.
The Brute Force can carry a combined weight of 264 pounds on its cargo racks and has a tow rating of 1,250 pounds.
