Kawasaki Teryx King of the Hammers

Lined up against a field of heavily modified Side-by-Sides, Kawasaki’s Casey Currie piloted his Kawasaki Teryx4 stock 750-class engine to finish third in the 2014 King of the Hammers (KOH) UTV Pro Class.

Currie, with a factory-spec 749cc V-Twin powering his Kawasaki Teryx4, beat out 23 challengers in the fully-modified Side-by-Side class.

“Casey’s results are a testament to the Teryx4’s capabilities. In a race as demanding as KOH, when you choose a vehicle that is built to the highest standards of quality, durability and performance right off of the showroom floor, heavy aftermarket improvements aren’t always necessary,” says Kevin Allen, public relations manager, Kawasaki Motors Corp., U.S.A. “The fact that the Teryx4’s OEM motor can use its amazing torque and mid-range to compete head-on with the competition’s modified engines speaks to Kawasaki’s commitment to engineer the best off-highway vehicles, not just ones that focus mainly on displacement figures.”

While Casey took the Teryx4 to the number three spot in the Pro Class, his brother Cody Currie drove his 2014 Teryx to second in the UTV Production 850 Sportsman Class.
