Kawasaki Returns to Sport Side-By-Side Market With 2020 Teryx KRX 1000
It has been a long time coming, and after much anticipation, Kawasaki has finally made a return to the sport side-by-side market with the release of its all-new 2020 Teryx KRX 1000 Sport side-by-side.
The new machine is powered by a 999cc liquid cooled four-stroke parallel twin engine mated to a CVT transmission and centrifugal clutch. There are selectable power modes. A full power mode delivers a quick and powerful response while a low power mode has a milder response ideal for low-speed control over rock crawling terrain. There is an electronically selectable four-wheel drive and front differential lock allowing for drivers to quickly select between drive systems. The vehicle has dual snorkel air intakes—one for the engine and one for the CVT transmission. The intakes are recessed behind the driver and passenger doors of the vehicle to help reduce dust getting in them.
The roll over protection structure has been strengthened with a high-rigidity frame. The wheels are positioned as far apart as possible. The KRX 1000 features FOX 2.5 Podium Low Speed Compression shocks. Kawasaki boasts the longest suspension travel in its class with long arms. The vehicle has 19 inches of travel in the front and 21inches in the rear. The KRX 1000 comes with 31-inch Maxxis Carnivore tires mounted on 15-inch beadlock wheels.
The Kawasaki Teryx KRX 1000 has a roomy interior. The vehicle features half-doors along with adjustable high-back bucket seats for ride comfort. The vehicle has a large rear cargo space for storing everything you need for the next trail ride. The KRX 1000 comes in Lime Green with Metallic Onyx Black accents and is also available in Metallic Moondust White. It retails for $20,499.
