2009 Kawasaki Teryx 750 FI 4×4 Sport

You can expect all of the same benefits and features of the Teryx 750 4×4, but with higher-grade suspension and cast aluminum wheesl to harness the Teryx’s sport-oriented performance.

Sport RUV performance and handling taken to the next level

For 2009, Kawasaki slipped a digital fuel-injected (DFI) V-Twin engine into the wide-body chassis of its impressive Teryx™ recreation utility vehicle (RUV), then equipped it with upgraded, fully adjustable, high performance suspension components and cast aluminum wheels. The result is the most exhilarating two-seat ride available — the new Teryx 750 FI 4×4 Sport. Its head turning lime green color scheme with black accents and aluminum rims serves notice to the RUV world this machine is a force to be reckoned with.

Inheriting the Teryx family’s efficient CVT, superior ground clearance, useful cargo capacity and fuel-injected, mid-mounted 749cc 90-degree V-twin engine, the Teryx 750 FI 4×4 Sport offers the class-leading performance and features that performance-minded RUV customers have been seeking.

Strong and proven, the quick revving, fuel injected, large-bore V-twin engine features ignition timing that is tuned to allow it to rocket through the low and mid range with plenty of life left for high rpm performance. The Teryx 750 FI 4×4 Sport’s digital fuel injection (DFI) system automatically compensates for altitude and temperature changes. The DFI system uses a sophisticated mix of sensors that includes an inlet air pressure, throttle, crankshaft, speed, water temperature and a vehicle down sensor. A new fuel tank with a fuel pump to keep the Teryx’s engine fed were also part of the FI package.

The Teryx Sport’s superb continuously variable transmission (CVT) smoothly and efficiently transfers the robust power and quick response from its big V-twin to the wheels. This powertrain delivers true sport performance in a controlled manner, so the driver can exploit the full potential of the Teryx 750 FI 4×4 Sport.

The CVT utilizes a high-grade belt that is highly durable and designed to handle the high output of the engine. To minimize unnecessary belt wear, prevent undesired tire spin and offer upgraded rock section performance with less belt overloading, a CVT Belt Protection System uses inputs from a gear sensor (not in neutral), vehicle speed (measured from the rear wheel), Throttle Position Sensor (TPS), and engine speed to monitor belt conditions. Should the transmission failsafe system detect engine operation at high rpm for more than two seconds while the rear wheels remain motionless (i.e. rear wheels are immobilized and the belt is slipping) it automatically retards ignition timing and warns the rider via a flashing belt warning lamp.

Big power demands an equally capable chassis, and the Teryx 750 FI 4×4 Sport delivers with a body width that’s narrow enough to effectively negotiate trails, yet wide enough to offer additional stability, a roomy cab and help cope with the healthy output from its powerful V-twin. The wide track Teryx design employs a large-diameter, thin-walled tubular frame offering the necessary rigidity without performance draining weight. It also meets SAE regulations as a roll-over protective structure (ROPS) with an arrangement spacious enough to comfortably fit two full-sized adults.

Long A-arm and narrow frame give the Teryx 750 FI 4×4 Sport’s aluminum alloy wheels maximum travel and minimal camber change throughout the suspension’s stroke. The cast and polished aluminum wheels offer reduced unsprung weight – by about two pounds each – and increased strength over the standard Teryx’s steel units and add to the Sport model’s appearance.

A revised stabilizer bar and increased adjustability on the new Teryx 750 FI 4×4 Sport’s suspension makes a significant contribution to its handling and ride quality. Its front and rear Kayaba shocks are aluminum bodied, gas-charged units with piggy-back reservoirs, which reduce the tendency of the oil to froth under hard conditions. They provide adjustable preload and fully adjustable rebound and compression damping. The Sport’s higher-grade suspension component’s superior ability to soak up bumps translates to increased control and enhanced comfort on the trail.

Mounted on the stylish aluminum alloy wheels, the tall and aggressive 26-inch Maxxis tires were developed specifically for the Teryx. The tires give it superb forward and sliding traction along with good rough terrain handling and contribute to its class leading ground clearance and ability to overcome obstacles.

Mixing a sporting pace with rough terrain demands a high level of concentration from the driver. Helping to reduce the driver’s workload, are features like the simple switch activated, servo-controlled 4WD system. Additional traction management is just a hand lever away — the driver can perform easy on-the-fly adjustments to front differential lock, via the variable front differential control lever on the center console. Much like a sport ATV, the Teryx Sport’s rear differential always stays locked, allowing the Teryx to slide around corners in a classic two-wheel drift whenever the driver feels like having a little extra fun.

A fast RUV needs equally quick stopping prowess. The Teryx 750 FI 4×4 Sport meets the challenge, utilizing a combination of dual 200mm discs up front and a sealed wet brake in the rear. The front brakes are tucked into the wheels for protection from debris and their 27mm twin-piston calipers are rigid-mounted for optimum feel and control. The advantage of the sealed rear brake is most apparent when it can keep working even in the wettest or muddiest of environments unlike its competition. Its compact profile further adds to the remarkable amount of ground clearance.

Of course, this substantial sport performance is matched by Kawasaki’s legendary durability and reliability that starts on the surface – tough scratch resistant Thermo-Plastic Olefin (TPO) bodywork, that is. Steel skid plates underneath shield the Teryx engine from the ride stopping obstacles.

Inside, bucket seats, retractable three-point seat belts, a padded steering wheel that’s positioned low for better control, dual cup holders and plenty of shoulder and leg room provide a comfortable driving environment. Standard equipment on all Teryx models, the multi-function digital meter offers a fuel gauge, hour meter, clock, odometer, dual trip meters, warning lights and parking brake indicator.

A 7.4-gallon fuel tank and a 500-pound capacity, gas-assisted tilting cargo bed mean the Teryx 750 FI 4×4 Sport has the range and cargo abilities for long-distance fun. A cargo net and tie down hooks in all four corners keep the goods secure. Its 1300-pound towing capacity expands those cargo abilities further. The action doesn’t need the sun either thanks to dual 40W headlights showing the way and dual rear taillights letting it be seen. With such a cargo-carrying and transportability potential, it is an able partner for leisure/recreation activities, such as day trips or camping.

A large selection of authentic Kawasaki Accessories for the 2009 Teryx 750 FI 4×4 Sport are available through Kawasaki dealers. As with all off-highway vehicle recreation, Kawasaki encourages RUV drivers to drive responsibly and respect the environment.
