17KAF820FHF GN1 Engine 280x165

 Powerful Engine: Inline Triple

Making its mark in a Kawasaki MULE, the three cylinder petrol engine offers significant performance gains over earlier models. In addition to greater towing and carrying capacity, this stronger performance also translate to a higher top speed - which means arriving at your destination earlier, and having more fun getting there.

Powerful, liquid cooled, 812cm3 DOHC, 4 valves per cyclinder, fuel injected inline triple engine churns out significantly more power than the MULE 4000 Series models. Ample low-end torque contributes to smooth, responsive power at low speeds.  Fuel injection ensure the fuel delivery is instantaneous, contributing to predictable response for easy control.

Extended Riding Range

A 30 litre fuel tank offers the range to enable long forays with family and friends. Enough fuel to travel well into the bush to find that perfect camping spot and to get back out again. 

17KAF820FHF GN1 Brakes 280x165

Hydraulic Disc Brakes

Front and rear disc brakes ensure strong, sure stopping power. The hydraulic disc system offers predictable performance, delivering brake power that matches input at the brake pedal.

Front Discs are 212mm and gripped by two-piston (27mm) calipers.
Rear Discs are 212mm with single 34mm piston caliper. Semi-metallic brake pads offer the right balance between braking power and long life.

Durability

Kawasaki MULE side x sides are famous for their durability and the MULE PRO-FX is no exception.  Built to last in punishing conditions, Kawasaki's  flagship MULE also looks tough thanks to the rugged styling. The rugged frame construction ensures great durability as well as superb handling. The frame festures a ladder-type construction and is built from square tubes of high quality steel.  High tensile steel has been used in area of high-load (like the suspension mounting plates).

After undergoing extensive stiffness balance testing, the frame offers good lateral and torsional stiffness. The right amount of chassis flex to handle the shock of off-road work while maintaining a high level of ride comfort.

ROPS approved cab frame and and 3-point inertia reel seat belts are standard for added peace of mind. Always wear an approved helmet and read the owners manuals and the warning labels.

Built Tough

In addition to the tough engine and rugged frame construction, numerous features add to the PRO-FX's strong build:

  • Water-resistant engine backing plate, spark plug cover, CVT duct layout and differential breather layout are all designed to minimise the ingress of water.
  • Front and rear wheel housings keep mud, dirt and water from getting into the engine compartment and away from essential components.
  • Efficient air cleaner design, inluding a labyrinth layout, rubber seal and paper filter element helps keep the engine free from dust
  • High quality stainless steel exhaust system
  • Larger guage mounting bolts used at the A-arm pivots and suspension upper and lower mounts were chosen specifically for their contribution to suspension durability.
  • Fuel tank is positioned well away from the wheels to prevent it from being hit by flying debris, and features a guard for further protection.

17KAF820FHF GN1 Adjustable Steering

Tilt Steering

Steering wheel has a stepless range of approximately 40o allowing drivers to set the position to suit personal preference. This can also be used to lift the steering wheel out of the way to facilitate getting in and out of the vehicle.  The thickly cushioned steering wheel contributes to comfort as well as the high quality feel of the PRO-FX.

Electric Power Steering (EPS)

Kawasaki's high grade electric power steering (EPS) system works best when you need it most: at extreme slow speed and when stopped. turning the wheel causes a signal to be sent to the EPS ECU, initiating assistance. At slow speed or when stopped, assistance is greatest; assistance is reduced as vehicle speed increases to ensure stable handling. The EPS system also enhances the ride comfort and control by acting as a damping system.

The electric system works immediately, without time lag, when the engine is first started. The EPS system does not rely on an oil pump, therefore there is no engine power loss and fuel efficiency is uncompromised.
