Real nice 2012 Kawasaki Teryx4 with Poly Windshield, Roof, Soft Cab System,

Description

Twice as much of a good thing is always better, right? Absolutely. So you knew Kawasaki would eventually double the Teryx’s substantial fun and function factor by adding two seats – enough for more friends, extra help or the whole family.

Key Features

  • All-new model for 2012
  • Room for four means twice the personal payload and twice the fun. And with the rear seats mounted higher than those in front, rear-seat passengers have a better view forward – and have an easier time getting in and out
  • Perfectly balanced 749cc V-twin engine with digital fuel injection offers more power, especially in the low and mid range, exactly where a four-seat RUV needs it
  • All-new Double-X frame design offers rigidity and durability for the Teryx4’s extra weight and higher carrying capacity
  • All-new bodywork package offers good looks and extreme durability for the long haul, with scratch-resistant material used throughout
  • Sport-focused suspension front and rear offers an ideal compromise between sporty control and superb ride comfort
  • Roomy interior lets driver and passengers stretch out, while ample cargo space means you can take along plenty of supplies and gear
  • Short wheelbase versus the competition allows a short 16.7-foot turning radius (handy in tight situations) and the ability to climb over obstacles that would ground longer and lower vehicles
  • Superb off-road ability, including high-grade Maxxis Bighorn 26-inch tires on 12-inch rims, 10.8 inches of ground clearance, a 17-degree break-over angle, and 23.6-inch water fording depth
  • Continuously variable transmission (CVT) and category-first centrifugal clutch offer sporty performance and the slow-speed throttle precision needed in tricky or slow-speed conditions
  • Electronic three-mode 4WD is controlled by a handy cockpit switch and allows instantaneous changes from 2WD to 4WD and 4WD with differential lock for maximum traction situations
  • Dual 200mm front discs and a sealed multi-plate rear brake system help provide stopping power
  • Convenience features include standard colored doors, auto-style parking brake, roomy cargo area with four tie-down loops, full instrumentation, hand-holds, two-tone seats, over fenders for mud protection, opening front hood for easy maintenance and much more
  • Multi-function instrumentation offers the driver a host of important information, including speed, hour meter, fuel level and much more

Liquid-cooled 749cc V-twin Engine

  • Teryx4’s perfectly balanced liquid-cooled, 749cc SOHC, four-valve-per-cylinder fuel-injected, 90-degree V-twin engine pumps out substantial power, especially in the low and mid-range, precisely where a four-seat RUV needs it
  • Peak power has also been raised in addition to the focus on low and mid-range grunt
  • Oversquare (85 x 66mm) engine dimensions and high-flow four-valve cylinder heads contribute to the Teryx’s superb acceleration, low and mid-range pulling power and overall engine flexibility
  • 90-degree V-twin configuration offers perfect primary balance, resulting in low engine vibration and maximum comfort for driver and passengers
  • Transmission design features a shift-drum/shift-fork assembly for improved operation and durability, along with a centrifugal wet clutch in place of the previous belted design for improved operation
  • Aluminum cylinders are electrofusion-plated for light weight and excellent heat dispersion – all of which add durability and reliability
  • Valve timing, lift and ignition timing have all been optimized; along with a revised exhaust system, the new powerplant pumps out ideal power for a four-person RUV
  • Piston wall thickness, connecting rod bearing surfaces and crank journal surfaces have all been upgraded for added durability
  • Engine can be started in gear as long as the brake pedal is depressed
  • Electronically controlled Kawasaki Engine Brake Control helps to slow the RUV when descending hills
  • Engine is positioned mid-ship, providing optimum front/rear balance and optimal handling
  • A heavy-duty liquid cooling system keeps temperatures under control in the harshest conditions, and provides long-term dependability
  • Large-capacity radiator is compact and placed high in the chassis for protection against mud and debris, while a large cooling fan increases cooling capacity, especially during slower going
  • Engine weight is reduced via numerous advanced technologies, including lightened crank webs, rare earth magnet usage, a small generator, and paring excess material wherever possible
  • An ignition cut-out protects the brake system by preventing riding with the parking brake engaged
  • Large-diameter cooling-system hoses maximize coolant flow and overall capacity, while the coolant reservoir is located beneath the flip-up front cover for easy maintenance

Digital Fuel Injection

  • Upgraded digital fuel injection system enhances throttle response and automatically adjusts for changes in temperature and elevation for optimum performance in a wide range of environments
  • The Teryx4’s FI system is controlled by a 32-bit ECU and continuously monitors coolant temperature, air intake temperature and pressure, throttle position, vehicle speed and crankshaft angle to automatically provide the ideal amount of fuel via two 36mm throttle bodies – now with 12-hole fine-atomizing injectors – for extremely stable power delivery regardless of the conditions
  • FI system permits easy engine starting at low temperature and utilizes an Automatic Idle Speed Control and Automatic Fast Idle function to help ensure smooth engine warm up
  • The high-pressure fuel pump located within the tank features a unique reservoir chamber at the bottom of the pump to ensure air does not leak into the fuel system
  • Specific Teryx-sized throttle bodies, optimized ignition timing and new fine-atomizing injectors maximize low and mid-range torque as well as offer improved response at higher rpm

Kawasaki Automatic Power-drive System CVT

  • Featuring high and low ranges, plus reverse, this advanced and continuously variable transmission provides extremely direct engine feel along with instantaneous acceleration from the new centrifugal clutch
  • Transmission utilizes a high-grade, super-durable Kevlar-impregnated belt designed to handle the high output of the engine. The drive converter shaft is hard chrome-finished for added durability
  • The CVT Belt Protection System prevents tire freewheel, improves rocky terrain 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 large 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 minimizes intake temperatures

Category First Centrifugal Clutch

  • The category’s first use of a centrifugal clutch is key to the Teryx4’s superior acceleration control at slow and very slow speeds
  • Clutch is located between the crankshaft and CVT drive pulley, which eliminates CVT belt shock and contributes to optimal throttle control and precise power metering

Underhood Snorkel Air Intake

  • New snorkel and duct design located under front hood and massive air box – nearly three times larger than the standard Teryx’s unit – feeds the engine plenty of clean air while reducing intake noise. Easy maintenance design promotes long engine life
  • A new paper air filter element offers plenty of surface area and increased dust resistance

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/4WD w/differential lock 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

Double-X Frame Design and Wide-body Chassis

  • All-new frame features a Double-X design that bridges each of the boxed sections with cross members that significantly stiffen and strengthen the overall structure, adding durability and reduced flex
  • Large-diameter yet thin-walled tubular steel frame combines high rigidity, light weight and mid-engine placement – a perfect combination for performance riding
  • Tubular cab framework meets SAE J1194, 7.1.1, 7.1.2, 7.4 and 7.5 requirements as a roll-over protective structure (ROPS) and protects driver and passengers from trees, bushes and other overhanging obstacles
  • Steel guards protect the engine from rocks and other trail hazards
  • Sport-focused suspension with newly optimized spring and damping settings is designed for high-performance riding and a high degree of comfort with extra passengers
  • Wide-body track offers additional stability, especially at speed, yet turning radius remains surprisingly short – just 5.1 meters, the shortest in its class – thanks to the Teryx4’s short, 86.1-inch wheelbase
  • Short wheelbase offers other advantages, including a favorable breakover angle, which allows the Teryx4 to climb over obstacles without grounding the undercarriage
  • Chassis offers 10.8 inches of ground clearance, an ideal compromise between great low-CG handling and the ability to clear tough off-road obstacles
  • Frame design optimizes front and rear suspension’s lower A-arm length for excellent handling performance and minimal geometry change throughout the suspension’s travel
  • Chassis and suspension serve up an ideal balance of bump absorption, taut steering and ride comfort with one, two, three or four riders aboard
  • The 18 in. x 48 in. cargo bed is both durable and plenty useful, especially with the extra passengers the Teryx4 can easily carry
  • Forward-tilting front hood assembly offers aggressive styling and allows quick access to the radiator and front suspension components for easy maintenance and suspension tuning

Sport-focused Suspension

  • High-performance preload adjustable gas-charged Kayaba shocks up front provide excellent fade-resistant damping performance in the toughest conditions while providing 7.8 inches of plush, controlled wheel travel
  • Independent rear suspension with fully adjustable piggyback-reservoir shocks provides 8.3 inches of wheel travel and the best possible performance and handling at high speeds
  • The piggyback reservoirs on the rear shocks help reduce oil frothing under hard conditions by keeping the shocks cooler under strain
  • A rear torsion bar helps minimize body roll, maximizing chassis performance

High-performance Brakes

  • Dual front 200mm disc brakes gripped by rigid-mount 27mm twin-piston calipers provide powerful, fade-free braking and solid feel. To protect against damage and debris, the discs are tucked within wheel recesses
  • A sealed, oil-bathed multi-plate rear brake system provides maximum stopping power in almost any condition along with reduced maintenance due to its completely sealed design
  • The sealed rear brake’s compact design contributes to excellent ground clearance

Large, 26-inch Tires

  • 26-inch Maxxis tires developed specifically for the Teryx provide outstanding traction in many different conditions
  • Mounted on 12-inch rims, the largest tires available in the RUV category provide outstanding rough terrain performance and obstacle clearance

Handy Cargo Bed

  • With a 250-pound capacity and cargo hooks, the 18 in. x 48 in. cargo bed helps carry quite a bit of gear, making the four-person Teryx4 massively functional

Comfortable Cockpit and Ergonomics

  • With its massive passenger compartment, the Teryx4 provides plenty of shoulder and legroom
  • Form-fitting two-tone bucket seats (the front ones are three-way adjustable) and retractable three-point seatbelts (with an anti-cinch system) help provide a comfortable and secure ride
  • Rear seats are mounted higher than those in front, which helps passengers see clearly ahead and makes getting in and out much easier
  • Hand holds for front and rear passengers are standard, making it easier to climb in and out of the vehicle
  • A drink holder for each seat is standard and helps keep riders comfortable on long rides
  • Padded steering wheel is positioned low for comfort and provides additional driver protection
