Kawasaki Launches 2024 Mule 1000 Side X Side Lineup
New for 2024, Kawasaki introduces the new MULE PRO-FX 1000, MULE PRO-FXR 1000, and MULE PRO-FXT 1000 to its lineup of flagship Side X Sides.
Kawasaki is kicking off the 2024 new model release with a terrific lineup of three new MULE PRO packages from their tried and true MULE utility/recreation UTV model. This full-size model is popular among users for its high weight capability, durability, and class-leading comfort. Each of these models are powered by a new large displacement Kawasaki-built 999cc liquid-cooled, 4-stroke parallel-twin engine that features significant gains in torque, horsepower, and top speed than previous engine packages. This also means that this is the fastest Kawasaki MULE ever as well.
To ensure that the new MULE is capable of handling the additional power of the engine package, the MULE PRO series UTVs feature a sturdy chassis design that features long-travel suspension and increased ground clearance. Additionally, the MULE PRO series UTVs also get redesigned styling on the front end, and self-leveling suspension that adjusts to keep the vehicle level when fully loaded, which is a first for Kawasaki.
Between the three different MULE PRO models (MULE PRO-FX 1000, MULE PRO-FXR 1000, and MULE PRO-FXT 1000), consumers really have the choice between seven different models with prices that start at $16,599.
