The Kawasaki Brute Force 750 FI 4x4 utility ATV is a handful, plain and simple. Its massive 749cc V Twin injected engine puts out 50 horsepower that will send the tires howling for traction at the stab of the throttle in almost any conditions you can imagine! The machine is fun to ride as sliding the big brute around corners becomes routine as you get used to its power. Flipping the switch to 4 wheel drive adds to the handling as the front will help pull you right out of a corner and there seems to always be plenty of power on tap.

The fun aspect of the machine aside, the Brute Force is right at home in a true Utility environment and includes most of the bells and whistles Utility machines have. Front and rear racks can be loaded to capacity or make great platforms for the various boxes and attachments that can be added to store your tools or day needs out on the trail. I would have liked to have seen at least a back raised portion at the rear of the back rack to help aid in items being strapped down and to prevent them from sliding off the rack as found on a few other manufacturer utility ATV models.

The Brute Force NRA Outdoors racks are also covered in Camo, and the rack capacity (88 lbs Front, 176 lbs Rear) provide plenty of capacity for carrying cargo, but we would like to see a raised bar on the rear to stabilize cargo
The Brute Force features an fairly large and easily accessbile front storage compartment, and it is fairly water tight with a foam insert, but some water still found its way into the storage area during our testing

There is a nice compartment on this model to rider left that can hold every thing from cell phones and wallets to small hand tools. The compartment is sealed, but I recommend a plastic bag for any items you don’t want damp or wet as we found water could find its way in there, maybe even drilling a drain hole or two would help water build up if it cannot remain sealed. There is even a small compartment under the seat for added storage. Factory skid plates help stave off rocks and debris on the lower control arms fore and aft and with 9.7 inches of ground clearance, most rocks can be straddled with confidence.

The air filter on the Brute Force is located high in the chassis where you would expect the gas tank, which provides for easy access and improved water resistance
The gas tank is located under the rear fenders for a lower center of gravity, and the under the seat, all the electronics, fuses, battery, and the tool kit, which is a great utilization of the space

The Brute Force features a large floor board with drainage holes
Monitoring the big beast from the dash board is pretty straight forward and is easily viewed. The factory handlebars seemed a tad narrow for some of our taller riders, but fit the rest of us pretty good. Thumb throttle pressure is very light thanks to the injection and your thumb should survive all but the longest trek into the unknown. Sitting on the Brute made us notice that the seat seemed a bit stiffer then earlier models and when wet was just a touch slick but overall comfortable. Your legs will get warm when riding this machine, as the big twin puts out some serious heat so long rugged pants are almost mandatory unless you like the smell of burnt hair! Your feet will remain well protected in the large and solid floorboards that provide good footing in both dry and wet conditions.
