ATV of the Year!

• Named ‘ATV of the Year’ by ATV Illustrated magazine!

Key Features

• Strong liquid-cooled 271cc single-cylinder four-stroke engine offers substantial power and torque, especially at lower rpm levels thanks to precise engine tuning

• 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 ATV in tricky situations

• ‘Big-ATV’ styling reflects that of Kawasaki’s flagship ATV – the Brute Force 750 4x4i EPS

• Strong heavy-duty steel-tube frame offers significant durability and competent handling characteristics

• 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 pounds, respectively

• Front storage compartment is large enough to hold four 16.9-oz. bottles

• 500 lb. towing capacity means this capable ATV can even be used to move a compact trailer, sprayer or other implements around the rider’s property

• Digital instrumentation is easy to read and offers a wide range of on-the-go info

• The seating layout was designed to give 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

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

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

Sporty Yet Durable 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 850mm, while the rear track width is 830mm

• 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

Bodywork and 'Big ATV' 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

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

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

Carrying and Towing Performance

• Equipped with strong carrying racks front and rear, the Brute Force 300 can carry 44 pounds of gear up front and 66 pounds in back

• Strong hitch allows the Brute Force 300 to tow up to 500 pounds

• Behind the front grill is space (and a mounting bracket) for a Warn® winch, which greatly improves the unit’s utility and safety

Convenient Storage

• Front storage compartment is large enough to hold four 16.9-oz. bottles

• A side pocket built into the right fender offers additional storage for smaller items

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

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 being 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
