2010 Kawasaki KVF 360 Technology


The engine is a light, simple, air/oil cooled, 362cc single-cylinder unit with overhead cam valve train. The cylinder head is slanted forward to lower the center of gravity.

CVK-34 carburetor delivers smooth throttle response and efficient fuel consumption.

Carburetor mounted automatic electric heater prevents carb icing ensuring smooth running in cool weather.

A large oil cooler with thermostatically controlled fan keeps the engine temperature under control.

The Kawasaki’s electric engine brake control system provides additional slowing power when descending hills by using the braking effect of the engine’s compression. Braking control is applied automatically under certain conditions when the throttle is released.

The engine can be started in any gear if any brake is applied.

Back-up pull starter is included just in case. Engine decompressor makes manual starting easier.

The air box is located under the seat for easy access for air cleaner maintenance. A snorkel air intake near the handlebars minimizes the entry of water, dirt and foreign objects.


Mono-shifter mechanism makes for quick shifting between High, Low, and Reverse. Unique transmission design makes for a lightweight transmission assembly.

Third-generation KAPS (Kawasaki Automatic Power-Drive System) CVT automatic belt drive system features quick response and great reliability.

Belt Failure Detection System lets the operator know if the double cog KAPS drive belt is excessively worn or frayed. Under such conditions, the drive belt trips a switch mounted atop the CVT cover that limits engine speed, prevents the machine from being shifted into 4WD and signals the operator with a light on the instrument panel.

Air intake passage located under the handlebars routes cooling air to the CVT unit.

Electrically “selectable” 2WD/4WD system allows the rider to choose between 2WD or 4WD. A switch on the right side of the handlebar lets the rider easily change between drive systems to suit the terrain and applications.

The internal wet brake is completely sealed from mud and dust, etc. while its compact design allows ample ground clearance.

The variable front differential control helps to pull the rider through when extra traction is needed while allowing better directional control.

Override pushbutton switch allows the rider to increase power when riding in reverse gear.


MacPherson strut front suspension provides nearly seven inches of wheel travel and enhances the wheels’ ground-following ability for a smooth ride.

Dual hydraulic disc front brakes deliver powerful, progressive braking.

Highly rigid and very lightweight aluminum swingarm features a built-in, oil-bathed, multi-plate rear brake. The sealed, internal wet brake used at the rear is completely isolated from mud, dust and debris, while its compact design allows more ground clearance.

Uni-trak rear suspension features a large shock for stable damping characteristics. Five-position adjustable for preload, it comes with a dual-rate spring and delivers more than seven inches of wheel travel.

Convenient 12V accessory outlets are provided near the steering head and rear fender areas; each rated for ten amps.

Rubber mounted floorboards feature adjustable footpegs and provide great grip.

Bright, multi-reflector headlights throw plenty of light for late nights on the job.

The front guard is designed to accommodate an optional winch bracket, protected nicely behind the bumper.

Standard equipment brake light lets the group know when to slow down.

Instrumentation includes electric (no cable) analog speedometer, odometer, tripmeter, and hour meter and indicator lamps for neutral, reverse gear, 2WD/4WD, belt warning and oil warning.

Included trailer hitch is rated for 500kg (1100 lb).

Sturdy steel racks provide large surface area for carrying the big loads. Racks are rated 40kg front and 70kg rear.
