2010 KAWASAKI TERYX 750 FI 4x4 LE CAMO
DonÂít Worry: The Competition Never Saw It Coming Either
Unless you’ve been out in the boonies way too long, you’re already no doubt aware that the V-twin powered Teryx ™ is the most powerful and fun-to-ride RUV out there. But maybe you didn’t know how good it is for more serious pursuits—particularly when the Teryx in question is the 750 FI 4x4 LE Camo: In addition to the half-windscreen, cab roof and retractable cup holders you’ll find standard on all Teryx LE models, the LE Camo also rolls out covered in high-tech Realtree ™ APG HD camouflage—including its wheels, bumper, roof and dash.
Last year we gave the Teryx digital fuel injection and a host of other upgrades—and now for 2010, the evolution of this incredibly adaptable vehicle continues: An aggressive new front end with a hinged, forward-tilting hood allows front suspension and cooling system access and eases maintenance. Upgrades to the mighty V-twin’s cooling system enhance long-term reliability, and an even sturdier tilting bed out back provides even greater durability. In addition, a host of detail improvements for more efficient production and vehicle longevity are designed to do what Kawasaki has always done: keep the performance high while keeping the bottom line low.
Power, is of course, at the heart of the matter when it comes to a performance machine like the Teryx, and when it comes to power no other RUV can touch this one’s 749cc 90-degree 8-valve V-twin: Not only is this engine plenty powerful, its 90-degree configuration gives it perfect primary balance, for unmatched smoothness at any rpm—and a great exhaust note that sets the Teryx apart from lesser RUVs.
For 2010, a couple of upgrades to the engine’s cooling system add even more reliability: The radiator’s cooling fan (which switches on automatically when needed) is now larger and moves a greater volume of air, while a larger-diameter radiator hose allows greater coolant flow, to help keep the engine cool when the going gets slow and rough. Also, the coolant catch tank has been moved to the front of the machine, where it’s easily accessible under the very cool new tilt front end. While you’re under there, it’s easier to inspect and clean the Teryx’s gas-charged preload-adjustable shocks and dual, long A-arm front suspension setup.
The Teryx’s advanced digital fuel-injection system already included functions for automatic elevation compensation, automatic idle adjustment and easy, choke-free starting via a sophisticated array of sensors for inlet air pressure, throttle position, crankshaft position, rpm, water temperature and a vehicle down sensor. For 2010, another function has been added: An ignition cut-out will not allow the Teryx to be ridden away when the parking brake is engaged. That new braking system protection complements the Teryx’s CVT Belt Protection System, which (among other good things) automatically retards ignition timing if the system detects engine operation at high rpm for more than two seconds while the rear wheels are motionless (i.e., the belt is slipping), and warns the rider via a flashing belt warning lamp on the dash.
All that electronically enhanced performance is perfectly packaged within an advanced chassis that’s narrow enough to navigate most trails (and fit in a standard pickup bed), yet wide enough to offer a roomy cab and a great ride. The wide-track design frame uses large-diameter, thin-walled tubing to combine tremendous rigidity with light weight. And the upper frame adds great looks and protection, with enough room inside to fit two full-sized adults in a comfortable but supportive pair of bucket seats with retractable three-point seat belts.
Once comfortably strapped in, the rider can choose 2WD or 4WD with the flip of a switch, and Kawasaki’s super-efficient continuously variable transmission takes it from there, to practically anywhere you feel like going. A cockpit-adjustable variable front differential control even lets you fine-tune front-end traction. And while you’re doing those things, the LE Camo’s half windshield and cab top shield you from the elements, its retractable cup holders make it easy to maintain hydration and its dual gun scabbards keep your firearms securely in place.
Long-travel four-wheel independent suspension, adjustable Kayaba gas-charged shocks at all four corners, a rear stabilizer bar and mid-ship engine placement all work together to tame tough trails, with a high-performance long A-arm double-wishbone suspension design that reduces camber changes for sharp steering at all times. When it’s time to slow down, dual discs up front and a high-tech sealed oil-bath brake unit out back get the job done with power to spare, while Kawasaki Engine Braking Control uses clever electronics to assist with engine braking on steep downhills. Specially designed 26-inch Maxxis tires custom-built for the Teryx’s characteristics are the final ingredient in its amazingly potent handling package.
