Time to Work

Making light work of hard tasks, the entry-level Brute Force 300 has the features you’d expect from a much larger – and expensive – ATV. CVT transmission, disc brakes front and rear plus a ready for work water-cooled engine are all designed to deliver.

Key Features

The small Kawasaki ATV - Brute Force 300 - that is jammed full of big ATV features: Large carrying capacity, Good storage volume, Big Brute Force ATV styling, Solid footboards, Triple disc brakes, Parking Brake, Digital instrumentation, Suitable suspension, CVT transmission with centrifugal clutch, Water cooled engine.

Carrying Performance

Equipped with robust carriers front and rear, the Brute Force 300 can carry 20 kg at the front and 30 kg at the rear. Convenient built-in tie down hooks help secure loads.

Enough capacity to carry everything you will need for a day on the property and on the trails.

Storage Space

Front storage compartment is large enough to hold four 500 mL bottles – greater volume than on the flagship Brute Force 750 4x4 EPS. Rubber seal makes the compartment water-resistant.
Side pocket built into the right fender offers convenient storage for small items - (previous year model colour shown)

Flagship Inspired Big ATV Styling

Modelled after Kawasaki's flagship ATV (the KVF750 4x4 EPS) the KVF300 bears a distinct resemblance to its larger KVF brothers. Flush surface ergonomics contribute to both sport riding potential and ride comfort.

Wide handlebar contributes to the roomy ergonomics, offering a comfortable position for larger riders. Internal grip weights and weighted bar-ends help reduce vibration. Half-waffle-type grips contribute to rider control as well as a sporty image.

Large-volume bodywork (especially the fenders) gives the 300 the size of an ATV one class greater.

CVT Transmission

The combination of a CVT transmission and centrifugal clutch offers a high potential for sporty fun riding as well as easy control.Transmission and belt converter ratios selected for optimum power
feeling and speed range appropriate for a small-displacement ATV.

Ratios also ensure just the right amount of engine braking for a small-displacement 2WD ATV: too much engine braking and the rear wheels lock; too little, and controlled descents become difficult.

Solid Footboards

Convenient and reassuring rider footboards.

Parking Brake

Handy parking brake mechanically activates the rear brake caliper without placing any burden on the brake’s hydraulic system.

Thick Cushioned Seat

The KVF300's thick seat urethane provides great cushion performance, contributing to rider comfort when seated.


Towing capacity is a substantial 227kg. Space and mounting bracket for a Warn winch provided behind the front grill.


Suspension tuned for accurate and light steering in all conditions.

Triple Disc Brakes

Dual ø180 mm disc brakes gripped by single-piston calipers provide strong stopping power with good feel. A third disc brake at the rear, measuring ø180 mm and gripped by a single-piston caliper complements the dual discs at the front.

Digital Instrumentation

Quality all-digital instrumentation is easy to read. Features include: speedometer, trip meter, fuel and temperature gauges, clock, and neutral, reverse and high-beam indicators.

Water Cooled Engine

Liquid-cooled 271 cm³ SOHC, 2-valve engine with a bore and stroke of 72.7 mm x 65.2 mm delivers a strong 16 kW {22 PS} at 7,500 rpm maximum power and a substantial 22.3 N.m {2.3 kgf.m} at 6,500 rpm of torque.
