- Engine weight is kept down using many advanced techniques, including carving lightening webs into the crank webs, using rare earth magnets, a small generator and paring excess material wherever possible.
Digital Fuel Injection System
- Digital fuel injection enhances throttle response and automatically adjusts for changes in temperature and elevation, for optimum performance in a wide range of environments.
- The fuel injection system (controlled by a 32-bit CPU) continually monitors coolant temperature, air intake temperature, throttle position, air intake pressure, vehicle speed and crankshaft angle to automatically meter out the ideal amount of fuel via two 34mm throttle bodies for extremely stable power delivery – regardless of the conditions.
- FI systems permits easy engine starting at low temperature and utilizes an Automatic Idle Speed Control and Automatic Fast Idle function help to ensure smooth engine warm up.
- The high-pressure fuel pump located inside the tank features a unique reservoir chamber at the bottom of the fuel pump to help ensure air does not get into the fuel system.
- Specific Teryx-sized throttle bodies and revised ignition timing have increased low and mid-range torque as well as improved response at higher rpm.
- Ignition mapping when in reverse, combined with low-speed operation and deceleration FI settings, enable the engine to deal with increased moisture when driving in shallow water.
Kawasaki Automatic Power-Drive System CVT
- Featuring high and low ranges, plus reverse, this advanced continuously variable transmission provides a very direct feel from the engine and instantaneous acceleration – ideal characteristics for sport riding.
- Transmission utilizes a high-grade, super-durable Kevlar-impregnated belt that's designed to handle the high output of the engine. The drive converter shaft is hard-chrome finished for durability.
- The CVT Belt Protection System prevents tire freewheel, improves rock section performance and reduces belt overloading by adding Throttle Position Sensor (TPS) data into the system.
- Unnecessary belt wear is minimized with a system that reduces engine speed if the engine operates at high rpm for more than two seconds while the rear wheels are motionless.
- A big CVT intake duct, located to keep water and debris out, provides plenty of cooling air to the CVT.
- Heat shielding on the exhaust pipe below the intake duct keeps intake temperature down.
Snorkel Air Intake
- Voluminous air cleaner box containing an oval filter with lots of surface area feeds the engine plenty of clean air, while keeping intake noise down. Easy maintenance design promotes long engine life.
Selectable Four-Wheel-Drive/Variable Front Differential Control
- Selecting two or four-wheel-drive is as easy as pressing a switch located on the dash; electrically “selectable” 2WD/4WD system engages instantly.
- Limited-slip front differential reduces steering effort under normal four-wheel drive operation, while Variable Front Differential Control permits the rider to distribute torque equally to left and right front wheels for maximum traction via a hand lever located between the seats.
- Rear gear case keeps rear wheels locked and turning together for maximum forward thrust.
- Large-diameter thin-walled tubular steel frame combines high rigidity, light weight and mid-engine placement – a perfect combination for performance riding.
- Tubular cab frame meets SAE J1194, 7.1.1, 7.1.2, 7.4, and 7.5, requirements as a roll-over protective structure. (ROPS)
