2012 Kawasaki Brute Force 4x4 750 EPS Utility ATV Review / Test Ride

2012 Kawasaki Brute Force 750i Utility ATV Wheelie
Kawasaki improved the throttle response on the 2012 Brute Force making it very easy to pull up the front end to get over obstacles along the trail
Many of the changes made to the Kawasaki Brute Force 750 for 2012 are performance based and those improvements were very noticeable from the moment we threw a leg over this machine. One of the first things we noticed was the instantaneous throttle response. There was no lag or bog. As soon as you hit the throttle, the response was immediate. Quite honestly, this is one of the best throttle responses we have come across in a long time.

The powerful 749cc V-twin engine featured in the Kawasaki Brute Force ATV produces great low-end torque and quick high-reving acceleration
Also noticeable is the increased power and torque of the Brute Force’s engine. The Brute Force’s power house includes a powerful 750cc V-twin engine that produces excellent torque and power. It offers superb acceleration and gobs of low end torque for getting over any obstacle, but still has high revs, more like a sport ATV. The KVF650F cylinder heads are used to increase compression on the Brute Force, which in turn helps increase torque and increases the compression ratio from 8.8 to 9.3 in the new 2012 Brute Force 750.

The camshaft has been revised for increased engine response and performance and the thinner piston tops and oil rings reduce oil consumption and blow-by. Revised FI mapping has also been remapped to improve engine performance. Besides performance, the engine size of this machine has been reduced without losing power. This change helps to reduce weight as the engine is approximately the same size as the KVF360 engine.

The stainless steel front and rear exhaust pipes offer good durability and the improved pipe and muffler cover offers better heat insulation to increase CVT cooling efficiency. The exhaust system was also pleasantly quiet and should easily pass any decibel restrictions.

The cooling system of the Brute Force has also been updated with a larger radiator, larger fan, and larger hose to help keep it running cool no matter what conditions the machine is exposed to. The cooling reservoir has also been relocated to inside the right front wheel housing for easy maintenance.

Another key feature is that Kawasaki has given the Brute Force 750 a redesigned air filter body panel covers that offers exceptional protection and prevents mud and water from entering the filter housing. The only way for water or mud to enter this compartment is for the ATV to be submerged. We found this to be quite beneficial, especially for wetter climates and muddy conditions.
