Features

Bodywork and Styling

  • The Brute Force 300’s durable bodywork was styled after that of Kawasaki’s larger, category-leading Brute Force siblings
  • Flush surface fit between the tank, seat and body panels contributes to comfort while aboard as well as a high-quality finish
  • Large-volume bodywork (especially the fenders) gives the Brute Force 300 the size of an ATV one class larger, which adds value

Carrying and Towing Performance

  • Equipped with strong carrying racks front and rear, the Brute Force 300 can carry 44 lb of gear up front and 66 lb in back
  • Strong hitch allows the Brute Force 300 to tow up to 500 lb.
  • Behind the front grille is space (and a mounting bracket) for a Warn® winch, which greatly improves the unit’s utility

Convenient Storage

  • Front storage compartment is large enough to hold four 16-oz. bottles
  • A side pocket built into the right fender offers additional storage for smaller items

CVT and Centrifugal Clutch

  • Continuously variable transmission (CVT) with centrifugal clutch offers easy operation and a smooth transfer of torque
  • This CVT is based on the same general design used on our flagship ATV – the Brute Force 750 4x4i EPS
  • Transmission and belt converter ratios were selected for optimum power delivery and the speed range appropriate for a smaller-displacement ATV
  • Optimized CVT ratios provide impressively tuned engine braking, which takes some stress out of riding the Brute Force 300 in tricky situations
  • High-strength CVT belt provides a large degree of durability and longevity
  • Bevel gear surfaces benefit from carbon-nitriding and shot-peening processes for maximum strength and longevity
  • The CVT intake duct is located high on the chassis (under the tail) which helps prevent mud and water intrusion
  • Handy reverse gear simplifies slow-speed maneuvering

Digital Instrumentation

  • Quality digital instrumentation console is ideally positioned and easy to read
  • Features include: Speedometer, trip meter, fuel and temperature gauges, clock, and neutral/reverse/high-beam indicators

Four-Stroke Liquid-Cooled Engine

  • Strong, liquid-cooled, 271cc four-stroke engine is designed for smooth power and optimum longevity
  • SOHC engine is dimensionally arranged and tuned for an emphasis on low-end and mid-range power, the rpm range in which it will be operated most. This power delivery makes the unit easier to control and ideal for utility and sporting roles
  • Produces impressive horsepower and substantial torque, which ups the sporting and hauling quotients considerably
  • Kawasaki Secondary Air system helps minimize emissions, allowing the Brute Force 300 to clear strict EPA and CARB standards
  • Polished balancer gear teeth result in precise gear meshing, which contributes to low engine noise
  • Air-cleaner duct opening is located high on the chassis, under the handle cover, which helps prevent water, mud, etc. from getting in
  • Reassuring recoil starter system offers a backup to the convenient electric start system

Key Features

  • Continuously variable transmission (CVT) with centrifugal clutch offers easy operation and a smooth transfer of torque
  • Optimized CVT ratios provide impressively tuned engine braking, which takes some stress out of riding the Brute Force 300 in tricky situations
  • Styling reflects Kawasaki’s flagship ATV – the Brute Force 750 4x4i EPS
  • Durable heavy-duty steel-tube frame offers long-lasting strength and contributes to capable handling characteristics
  • Strong, liquid-cooled, 271cc single-cylinder four-stroke engine offers substantial power and torque, especially at lower rpm levels thanks to precise engine tuning
  • Triple-disc brakes are easy to service and offer great power and feel at the levers
  • Special Maxxis tires developed jointly with Kawasaki offer an ideal combination of grip and durability
  • Strong racks in front and back hold 44 and 66 lb, respectively
  • Front storage compartment is large enough to hold four 16-oz. bottles
  • 500-lb towing capacity means this ATV can even be used to move equipment around the ranch or haul a prized buck home from the woods with ease
  • Digital instrumentation is easy to read and offers a wide range of on-the-go info
  • Seating layout allows a sporty riding position for optimum control when the pace picks-up
  • Intelligent bodywork design and full coverage floor boards offer excellent overall mud protection and additional security for the rider’s legs

Maxxis Off-Road Tires

  • These traction-maximized tires were developed jointly between Maxxis and Kawasaki
  • Featuring optimized off-road grip and durability, these tires offer a blend of performance that’s hard to beat

Mud Resistance

  • The Brute Force 300 ATV features a strong combination of footpegs and floorboards. The height difference between them is minimized to ensure rider comfort and greater freedom for foot placement
  • The floorboards contribute to mud protection, while the holes in the floorboards are just large enough to prevent mud from getting trapped beneath the rider’s feet
  • Small flaps on the front fenders, near the front of the floorboards, further protect the rider from mud and debris
  • Front inner fenders help prevent mud from entering and clogging the engine compartment

Other Features

  • 3.2-gallon fuel tank and meager fuel consumption give the Brute Force 300 substantial range
  • A DC socket located conveniently on the left side of the handle cover provides quick and easy power for accessories
  • Thick, cushioned seat offers a high degree of riding comfort

Strong and Sporty Chassis

  • Steel-tube frame is lightweight and strong, will withstand a pounding for years of utility use or sport riding
  • Chassis traits include excellent handling and straight-line stability, plus capable cornering characteristics via the wide track, and minimal bump-steer
  • Long A-arms and rear axle give the Brute Force 300 one of the widest tracks in its class, which contributes to its ride comfort and exemplary handling manners
  • Front track width is 33.5", while the rear track width is 32.7"
  • Front-to-rear chassis balance is optimized for stable cornering and maximum controllability
  • Steering geometry and front and rear suspension settings have been coordinated and optimized for ideal balance, control and stability
  • Optimized chassis tuning also contributes to light handling manners at slower speeds, where this unit will spend much of its time

Triple Disc Brakes

  • Dual 180mm hydraulically activated disc brakes with single-piston calipers provide front wheels with strong stopping power
  • A third 180mm disc with a similar caliper is featured in back
  • Optimized master cylinder ratios offer riders an ideal braking balance between front and rear brakes
  • A cable-operated parking brake system is also included for extra security when necessary
