Kawasaki’s “little” MULE is very capably meet market needs for lightweight, compact utility vehicles capable of filling a variety of roles. Robust construction and reliable components ensure the durability to get the job done day after day, while enjoying the great outdoors on weekends. With large wheels, tyres and 4WD the “Bigfoot” XC model is better able to ride over obstacles, increasing their potential for leisure activities. 26” bias-ply tyres contribute to superior off-road handling. The massive tyres also add to the rugged, sporty image. Wheels feature larger rims: 12” instead of 10”. Wider track offered by the larger tyres contributes to riding stability.
