2020 TERYX KRX 1000



Kawasaki's all-new trail adventure Side x Side was built for high-adrenaline fun in the woods and on rock trails.

Boasting the toughness, durability and reliability that TERYX models are renowned for, the KRX 1000 possesses the capability and confidence to tackle tough rock crawls, superb cornering and straight -line stability on rock/wood/desert trails, and superior comfort.

The all-new TERYX KRX 1000 represents Kawasaki’s first challenge in the growing Sport Side x Side category, and an exciting new flavour for hard-core trail/adventure enthusiasts. Limited number available in Australia.

Parallel Twin with Torque

Offering the best of both worlds, the KRX 1000’s compact new litre class engine delivers both high power and high torque. Its well balanced performance enables both high-rpm operation as well as low speed running. The easy character accommodates a wide range of situations, from trail running to technical sections.

High Performance Suspension

Instrumental components of the KRX 1000's off road capability as an adventure/trail model, the long suspension arms and massive FOX 2.5 PODIUM LSC shock units easily soak up obstacles encountered on the trail, and the suspensions ability to keep all fours wheel in contact with the ground keeps the KRX 1000 moving forward. 

Hydraulic Disc Brakes

Four ø258 mm large-diameter disc brakes deliver superb braking force. Twin-piston calipers with ø32 mm pistons grip the front discs, while single-piston calipers with ø38 mm pistons slow the rear.

Protected Undercarriage

Undercarriage is covered by highly durable skid-plates, with key components protected by steel pieces, adding to driver confidence.

Steel plates behind the front fenders offer the vehicle protection from rocks and debris.

Digital Display

Positioned above the steering wheel, large all-digital instrumentation offers at-glance information to the drive, featuring: digital speedometer, fuel gauge, odometer, hour meter, clock, dual trip meters, 2WD/4WD indicator, front differential lock indicator, parking indicator, water temperature warning indicator, fuel injection warning indicator, neutral indicator light, reverse indicator light and oil pressure warning light.

A seatbelt-use reminder lamp comes on for 10 seconds after the engine is started to remind the driver to buckle up. After 10 seconds, the lamp stays on if the drivers seat belt is not fastened. Always wear the seat belts and approved helmet.

31” tyres with 15” bead-lock wheels

Large-diameter tyres and bead-lock wheels contribute to the KRX 1000’s superior off-road capability.The 31” MAXXIS Carnivore tyres ride over small obstacles with greater ease, their larger diameter allowing the KRX 1000 to better maintain its forward momentum.The tyres’ off-road pattern offers enhanced grip for climbing over rocks in rock crawls.

Advantageous Dimensions

Wheels pushed out to the four corners of the vehicle actually extend beyond the bodywork. Approach and departure angles of 90° mean that the tyres are the first to encounter obstacles on the trail.

ROPS Highly Rigid Cab Frame

Designed using Kawasaki’s advanced dynamic rigidity analysis, the KRX 1000’s frame incorporates the Rollover Protection Structure (ROPS) as a stressed member. The energy-absorbing ROPS design helps disperse stress, contributing to optimal rigidity and high durability.

Electric Power Steering

Kawasaki’s high-grade electric power steering (EPS) system is speed sensitive, offering light steering effort at low speed, while reducing assistance as vehicle speed increases to ensure responsive steering.

CVT & Centrifugal Clutch

The CVT and centrifugal clutch are the key to superior acceleration control at slow and very slow speeds.. By eliminating the shock of the CVT belt engaging, the centrifugal clutch facilitates precise throttle control when navigating rock crawls or other tricky terrain. Stable engine braking offers reassuring support down steep inclines.

On-The-Fly Adjustable Power Delivery

Electrically selectable 4WD and front differential lock can be engaged while on the go, enabling the driver to quickly and easily switch between drive systems to suit changing terrain and applications. Power Mode selection offers the choice of Full or Low to suit preference and conditions

Power Modes

A choice of Full Power or Low Power modes allows drivers to set power delivery to suit preference and conditions. The milder throttle response offered by Low Power mode contributes to superb low-speed control when tackling tricky obstacles.

Tilt Steering

The steering wheel has a stepless range of approximately 47°, allowing drivers to set its position to suit their preference, as well as lift it out of the way to facilitate getting in and out of the vehicle.

Roomy Interior

The KRX 1000’s roomy cabin greatly contributes to ride comfort. High-backed bucket seats and three-point seatbelts support driver and passenger during hard riding, while providing comfortable seating during more leisurely riding. Ample legroom and lever-adjustable seats allow the driver to fine-tune their position for control and comfort.

Handy Cargo Space

Rear carrier load capacity is 159 kg. Carrier’s recessed bottom (370 x 840 x 28 mm) helps prevent cargo items from moving around. Four cargo hooks built into the carrier bottom provide tie-down points to help secure cargo.

LED Headlights

Newly designed LED headlights include high and low beams, as well as line-type LED position lamps. Their wide position reinforces the aggressive image of the KRX 1000’s wide, stable stance.
