2010 Kawasaki Brute Force 750 4x4i Technology


The ATV industries most powerful, liquid-cooled, 749 cm3, SOHC, 4-valve V-twin engine churns out a substantial 50.4 PS @ 6,500 rpm.

Torque output 59.4 N m @ 4,500 rpm lets the KVF750D/E/F accelerate with ease.

Offsetting the cylinders by 90° results in perfect primary balance, for low vibration levels and comfortable riding. It’s so smooth there’s no need for a separate extra engine balancer, saving power and weight.

Oversquare bore and stroke measure 85 x 66 mm.

All-aluminum cylinders feature electrofusion-coated bores for light weight, long wear and excellent heat dispersion. The electrofusion bores save 1.5 pounds of engine weight.

Fuel injection with 36 mm throttle bodies and 32-bit ECU automatically meters out the ideal amount of fuel for extremely stable power delivery – no matter what the conditions.

Reduced throttle spring rate and ball bearings for the throttle shafts provides lighter throttle for reduced rider fatigue.

The four valve heads use large, 30 mm intake and 26 mm exhaust valves.

Efficient, SOHC (Single OverHead Cam) design operates forked rocker arms with screw type lash adjusters for ease of maintenance.

Air filter frame is easier to remove for cleaning/oiling.

Air routed to the air filter (and to the CVT) enters a cavity located in front of the air box via a rear-facing intake passage under the handlebars. This helps prevent the ingress of water, mud, dust, etc. A 3-piece shroud box further reduces the possibility of water and mud entering the air box and CVT cavity in harsh conditions.

Powerful rare-earth magnets used in the AC generator are highly efficient and lighter weight than traditional magnets. Lighter flywheel effect aids in the quick revving engine character.

AC generator output at slower speeds is enhanced with the rare-earth magnets making more power available to run accessories when driving at slower speeds. Peak AC generator output is 340W.

High-mount radiator is less likely to be filled with mud and is accessible for cleaning.

Large, thermostatically controlled fan keeps cooling air moving through the radiator even at slow vehicle speeds.

A circuit breaker ensures the cooling fan’s motor does not overheat in the event the fan does become clogged with debris. The under-seat breaker switch can be reset without changing parts.



Convenient mono-shifter enables quick shifting between Reverse, Neutral, High, and Low range thanks to the unique single sliding detent mechanism inside the transmission case.

The engine can be started in any gear if one of the brakes is applied.

The KAPS (Kawasaki Automatic Powerdrive System) is a high-durability automatic CVT combined with a straight shifting High/Low/Reverse transmission designed to handle the massive power output of the Brute Force 750 engine.

KAPS takes advantage of the Brute Force 750’s strong low end torque by engaging just off idle (approximately 1500 rpm) which contributes to the relaxed low speed riding and very smooth belt engagement.

The drive converter uses a four-finger spider that distributes loads better than a traditional three-finger spider. With the reduced loads per finger, CVT response is smoother and wear is reduced.

Hard chrome plating on the drive converter shaft improves surface texture to reduce bushing wear and to further improve CVT action.

Cooling fan cast into the drive sheave draws air from a cavity located below the handlebars via a rear-facing intake passage. This helps prevent the ingress of water, mud, dust, etc.

The driven converters’ movable sheave slides on sealed, greased bushings for smoothest operation and longest wear. Four steel guide pins also operate within the sealed grease.

The two power pulses of the Brute Force 750’s V-twin engine reduce stress on the CVT components compared to the one large power pulse of a big-bore single cylinder engine extending belt and CVT service life.

CVT sheaves are manufactured of high-pressure cast, high silicon aluminum (same as pistons) for best durability.

Kawasaki Engine Brake Control uses speed and direction sensors along with an electric servo for smooth operation. This system detects the ATV’s speed, direction, and deceleration electrically. When the conditions are satisfied, the electric servo moves out to hold the CVT drive pulley closed thereby connecting the driving pulley with the driven pulley through the belt and then generating braking force from the engine.

The Kawasaki Engine Brake Control is an automatic engaging system. There’s no need to apply throttle for the system to engage. Coasting forward in gear, the Kawasaki Engine Brake Control automatically engages to provide engine braking force. Additionally, whenever the key is turned off, a learner program in the engine brake controller measures and then self adjusts for belt wear to ensure consistent engine braking operation.

Kawasaki Engine Brake Control safety features ensure that the engine braking force only works when the ATV is moving forward and vehicle speed is more than 3 km/h.

Final Drive

Efficient “through engine” propeller shaft is lubricated using the same oil shared with the engine and transmission. The all-in-one case saves weight and controls the exacting tolerances between components.

“Through engine” design allows for very short, light, rigid drive shafts for thefront and rear final drives. Straight alignment of the drive shaft tothe front final drive case delivers power through sealed splines withno U-joints required.

Front and rear final drives use sturdy CV joints to feed power to the wheels.

Front outboard CV joints have an operating range of 50°.

Front CV joints can be independently disassembled, greatly easing outboard CV boot replacements.

Efficient “through engine” propeller shaft is lubricated using the same oil shared with the engine and transmission. The all-in-one case saves weight and controls the exacting tolerances between components.

Compact final gear case design contributes to incredible ground clearance allowing the KVF750 to go where others fear to tread.

Dual Cardan joints to the rear drive absorb torque fluctuations and reduce vibration through the rear drive shaft.

Electrically “selectable” 2WD/4WD system allows fast, easy switching between two andfour wheel drive to suit changing terrain and applications.

Rider controlled, variable front differential makes it much easier to get the ATV through difficult or slippery situations.

With the hand lever released, the system functions as a light limited slip differential providing excellent steering feel.

Pulling the lever increases the torque on the limited slip plates until the differential effectively locks. This fast acting, wide range offine-tuning ability is a technological feature unseen in otherindustries, let alone on competitors’ ATV’s.

Lever operation puts the rider in control. The rider decides how strong the system functions. Also, there’s no delay as in some electrically switched systems; the system engages and disengages immediately as the rider pulls or releases the lever.

Reverse limiter (3600 rpm) automatically engages when reverse is selected to prevent excessive speeds or acceleration in reverse. An override push button on the left handlebar control assembly allows the rider to easily increase to fullpower if needed.


High-tensile steel, double-cradle frame is very rugged.

New urethane seat offer increased ride comfort. The seat feels softer initially, but offers
firm support for comfort after long hours in the saddle.

Double wishbone suspension used front and rear ensures high ride comfort and ground
following ability, especially in the low and medium speed ranges.

Revised Suspension: Front & rear dual-rate springs enable sport performance with
increased comfort. Relatively firm settings maintain chassis composure at higher speeds.

Upper and lower front A-arms and lower rear A-arms use a combination of needle bearings
and spherical joints for high stability, smooth suspension action and superb ride comfort.

Reinforced rear knuckles are resistant to harsh riding conditions.

Tuned sway bar controls roll yet allows smooth independent movement of the rear wheels.

5-position adjustable spring preload, front and rear, allows tuning for varying loads.

The 4-bulb headlight cuts an impressive swath through dark nights.

Large 19 L fuel tank is located beneath the rear fender and operates via a high-pressure fuel
pump is located inside the tank. A unique reservoir chamber at the bottom of the fuel pump
ensures air does not get into the fuel system.

Instrument package mounts the instruments more vertically to suit the upright-seated
riding position. Multi-purpose, digital instrumentation includes speedometer, odometer,
tripmeter, fuel gauge, engine temperature indicator, clock, and hour meter. Indicator
lamps for neutral, reverse gear, 2WD/4WD, belt indicator, and oil warning are also fitted.

Fenders and body parts are made of thermo-plastic olefin (TPO) material featuring a
scratch resistant finish for long-wearing good looks. Fit and finish is excellent.

Accessory mounting brackets available for either a Super Winch or Warn brand
winch. In addition, North American models come standard with pre-routed tubing that
facilitates wiring routing.

Polished wheels make the Brute Force stand out from the crowd. The new wheel design
offers a large, flat surface that is easy to buff to a high sheen.

Dual-piston front brake calipers deliver powerful, progressive braking.

A “vehicle down” sensor automatically shuts off the fuel supply if the machine’s attitude
becomes extreme. If the vehicle tips over or leans more than 65 degrees, the sensor
operates, cutting the ignition spark. The system automatically resets once the ATV is upright again.

Electrical equipment is conveniently located under the seat for easy access.

Convenient 12 V accessory outlets are provided at the front (10 Amp switched, cigarette
type) and rear (5 Amp unswitched, bullet type).

Carriers (especially front) are smaller, lighter, contributing to weight reduction. Hold 40 kg
up front and 80 kg in the rear, and are ideal for work, camping and many other tasks.

Standard equipment trailer hitch bracket is fitted with a standard ¾” bolt hole for a traditional trailer ball.
