The Kawasaki Brute Force® ATV family boasts STRONG features that include Electric Power Steering (750 4x4i EPS and EPS Camo models), either a 749cc V-twin or a 271cc single-cylinder engines and all models are designed to suit a variety of needs and budgets. The Brute Force 750 4x4i models also feature four-wheel drive to help ensure you reach your destination, even in tough conditions, while the price-friendly Brute Force 300 is available in rear-wheel drive only.
All Brute Force ATVs are constructed around a sturdy frame that is built Kawasaki STRONG. Along with dependable engines and proven Kawasaki performance, the Brute Force family is the perfect transportation for a fun weekend ride, a fishing trip or getting around the work site.


Powered by a fuel injected 749cc V-twin engine, the Brute Force 750 4x4i EPS and EPS Camo can be ridden in either two- or four-wheel drive modes, which are selected at the touch of a button on the handlebar. It also has the benefit of Variable Front Differential Control for the limited-slip front differential, ensuring plenty of traction when it’s needed.


Power is transmitted through the Kawasaki Automatic Power-Drive System (KAPS) for the Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) to ensure smooth power delivery and always the right amount of torque for the task at hand. These models also feature Electric Power Steering (EPS), making it easy to maneuver off-road, and allowing riders to stay in the saddle longer by reducing fatigue.
Equipped with powerful disc brakes and double wishbone independent suspension with 6.7” of wheel travel, the 2016 Kawasaki Brute Force 750 4x4i EPS and EPS Camo are ready for rough or tough conditions.


Not only can they handle the rough stuff, but these Brute Force ATVs look the part thanks to the rugged styling and attractive six-spoke cast aluminum wheels. The vehicle is also equipped with durable cargo racks with integrated tie-down loops.


New for 2016 for the Brute Force 750 4x4i EPS is the inclusion of Bright White and Candy Lime Green, in addition to Super Black. The Brute Force 750 4x4i EPS Camo continues to be offered in Realtree Xtra Green camouflage for outdoorsmen and hunters who want their vehicle to blend into the scenery.
