Fuel injected 90-degree 749cc V-twin engineDigital fuel injection provides the perfect delivery throughout the rpm range with fast throttle response
36mm throttle bodies are controlled by a 32-bit CPU, which monitors coolant temperature, air intake temperature, throttle position, air intake pressure, vehicle speed and crankshaft angle to help ensure the perfect air fuel mixture
Low spring rate for the throttle return springs and ball bearing equipped throttle body reduce friction and throttle action
High-pressure fuel pump located inside tank
Aluminum cylinders are Electrofusion-plated for light weight, long wear and excellent heat dispersion
Highly efficient and compact rare-earth magnets in the generator help contribute to reduced engine width
Engine can be started in any gear when a brake is applied
Access to the air filter requires removing only one cover
Radiator is compact and placed high in the chassis for better protection against mud and debris
New for 2010, the reservoir cooling hose is 90mm shorter and the hose end is positioned 100mm higher to prevent mud from clogging the hose
Transmission and PowertrainFully automatic Kawasaki Automatic Powerdrive System (KAPS) continuously variable transmission (CVT) has high and low forward gears plus reverse
Limited-slip front differential reduces steering effort under normal four-wheel drive operation, while Variable Front Differential Control permits rider to distribute torque equally to front wheels for maximum traction
Air for the CVT and airbox enter from a reverse-facing snorkel located beneath the handlebars to help protect against water and mud
Rider can select two- or four-wheel-drive operation by pressing a button located on the handlebar
Cardan joints on drive shafts absorb torque fluctuations and reduce vibration
Plastic front and rear axle boots provide protection from debris
