Weekend Warrior: 2014 Kawasaki Brute Force 300
2014 Kawasaki Brute Force 300: Brute Force For Heavy Duty Work
When I strap on my riding gear and head
outdoors I may use my ATVs for mostly recreational purposes, but
that doesn't mean I can't appreciate a heavy duty work machine when
I see one. It takes a strong utility vehicle to be able to meet the
demands of a farm or similar situation, and for those motorists on
the hunt for their next ATV, the Kawasaki Brute
Force 300 may be worth a look.
Engine And Chassis - Power And Durability
You can do a lot of chores with the help of the
Kawasaki Brute Force 300 and its four-stroke engine. With a
displacement of 271cc, the liquid-cooled motor provides more than
21 horsepower at 7,500 rpm. You also get solid torque from the
machine, with about 16.4 foot-pounds at a relatively low 2,300 rpm.
Riders can manage the engine with a two-speed transmission and
What really gets your attention is the Kawasaki's strong frame. It may not be too big or appear overpowering, but it packs a lot of punch in a smaller package. The double tubular steel chassis boasts a ground clearance of 6.1 inches and an overall height of 46.1 inches. You'll find great comfort when you're in the driver's seat, as the foot pegs are deeply grooved and raised, while the steering is light and easily controlled thanks to the top-notch suspension. It may not be right for long distance riding or serious off-roading, but it's ideal for working the land and taking care of some of your outdoor duties.
Additional Features - For Work And Play
Dual racks on the Kawasaki Brute Force 300 allow you to carry
up to 110 pounds of cargo. If that's not enough, it also boasts a
towing capacity of about 500 pounds. While tie-down hooks are
available to secure your gear, there's a front storage compartment
big enough to hold your possessions as well as side pockets built
directly into the fender. Adding to the raw towing power of the
Brute Force, there is a Warn winch mounting bracket
in the front with plenty of space behind the front grill for the
winch itself. In addition, there is a DC power socket on the left
side of the handle cover, allowing for easy use of power tools and
accessories and adding to the machine's utility.
Final Thoughts - Brute Strength, Forceful Attitude
At the end of the day, the 2014 Kawasaki Brute Force 300
performs better and provides more power than many larger and more
expensive machines, giving you plenty of bang for your buck. Extra
features only enhance the experience behind the wheel. You'll be
able to enjoy things like an all-digital instrumentation on the
dash - including speedometer, trip meter, fuel gauge, clock and
beam indicators - along with a few other additions that should you
help you out no matter what you're using the ATV for.
