          2014 Kawasaki Teryx Front Left

          Ever since first laying eyes on the Kawasaki Teryx4 two years ago, we’ve been waiting for the two-seat Teryx to see a significant update. Kawasaki has done just that for 2014.

          The list of updates for the 2014 Teryx is long, but the highlights are a more powerful engine, larger chassis, upgraded shock package and redesigned cockpit that is larger and more comfortable.

          Kawasaki squeezed more power out of its beloved V-Twin engine thanks to a displacement bump from 749cc to 783cc. This results in a claimed 26% power increase and 12% more torque. We’re not sure how an extra 34cc produces that kind of power boost, but Kawasaki credits optimized camshaft profiles and revised exhaust headers. Even with the additional power, Kawasaki boasts the 2014 Teryx delivers better fuel efficiency than the 2013 model.

            Kawasaki Lone Ranger

            Kawasaki has announced a unique tie-in with “The Lone Ranger,” a Disney/Jerry Bruckheimer Films production set for national release on July 3 that will see numerous vehicles given away to lucky fans. Kawasaki will use this new reimagining of the popular story to help carry product messages for its off-road motorcycles, four-wheel vehicles and street motorcycles.

            Concentrating on a “Live the Legend” campaign line, Kawasaki’s effort is heavily oriented to video creations depicting a transition from the Gore Verbinski-directed film to scenes of modern day adventurers with the company’s Teryx4 Side x Side, KX motocross, and Ninja sportbike products. The action-oriented “Live the Legend” video appears on KawasakiTV’s YouTube channel.

            Similar materials featuring the film’s stars, Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer, are also slated to appear in more than 1,000 Kawasaki dealerships around the country. Dealers will also be a core component of Kawasaki’s “Live the Legend Adventure” sweepstakes, which will invite consumers to text entries for a chance to win various products inspired by “The Lone Ranger.” The sweepstakes will also include film promotional partner, the Utah Office of Tourism.
