For some enthusiasts, owning the very best isn’t enough. These discriminating folks not only demand the finest in function, but aesthetics that go along with it – a look that tells everyone within eye-shot they’re dealing with a serious owner.
For them, Kawasaki’s all-new Teryx™ 750 FI 4×4 LE Special Graphics Edition (SGE) is clearly the RUV to have. Already blessed with a large handful of cool extras as standard equipment, this top-of-the-line Teryx adds yet another trick element to the mix – custom graphics directly from the Kawasaki factory. Three different color versions of the hydro-dipped film overlay graphic will be available on the Teryx 750 FI 4×4 LE SGE for 2011, each of which can be ordered through your local Kawasaki dealer.
The rest of the package is pure Teryx 750 FI 4×4 LE, a top-shelf RUV renowned for its high level of capability and many upscale luxury touches, which include a cab roof, deflector windshield and retractable cup holder.
The original Teryx 750 FI 4×4 LE scored big with journalists and buyers when it debuted several years ago. Over the years it’s been continually refined, receiving digital fuel injection and a host of other upgrades, including an aggressive new front end with a hinged, forward-tilting hood for easier maintenance. Other refinements are a better cooling system, a sturdier tilting bed and several other improvements where made for added vehicle durability in 2010.
For 2011 things are status quo with the LE package, which makes sense for an RUV with this much refinement, performance, and durability. After all, why mess with success?
Power is key when it comes to a performance RUV like the Teryx LE SGE, and when it comes to power, no other RUV can touch this one’s 749cc 90-degree eight-valve V-twin. Not only is this engine plenty powerful down low and higher in its rev range, its 90-degree configuration gives it perfect primary balance for unmatched smoothness at any rpm – and a great exhaust note that sets the Teryx LE SGE apart from lesser RUVs.
Feeding that impressive engine its cocktail of fuel and air is the Teryx LE SGE’s advanced digital fuel injection system. The system offers automatic elevation compensation, automatic idle adjustment and easy, choke-free starting via a sophisticated array of sensors for inlet air pressure, throttle position, crankshaft position, rpm and water temperature. There’s also an ignition cut-out feature that won’t allow the Teryx LE SGE to be driven away when the parking brake is engaged. That new braking system technology complements the Teryx LE SGE’s CVT Belt Protection System, which automatically retards ignition timing if the system detects engine operation at high rpm for more than two seconds while the rear wheels are motionless and warns the rider via a flashing belt warning lamp on the dash.
All that electronically enhanced performance is packaged in an advanced chassis narrow enough to navigate most trails (and fit in a standard pickup bed), yet wide enough to offer a roomy cab and a great ride. The wide-track frame uses large-diameter, thin-walled tubing to combine tremendous rigidity with light weight. And the upper frame combines cool style and protection with enough room inside to fit two full-sized adults in a comfortable but supportive pair of bucket seats with retractable three-point seat belts.
Once comfortably buckled in, the rider can choose two-wheel drive or four-wheel drive with the flip of a switch, and Kawasaki’s super-efficient continuously variable transmission takes it from there, taking you practically anywhere you feel like going. A cockpit-adjustable variable front differential control even lets you fine tune front-end traction. And while you’re doing all that, the LE SGE’s half windshield and cab top shield you from the elements, while its retractable cup holders make it easy to grab a refreshing drink on the go.
Long-travel four-wheel independent suspension, adjustable Kayaba gas-charged shocks at all four corners, a rear stabilizer bar and mid-ship engine placement all work together to tame tough trails, while a high-performance long A-arm double-wishbone suspension design that reduces camber changes offers sharp steering at all times. When it’s time to slow down, dual discs up front and a high-tech sealed oil bath brake system in back get the job done with power to spare, while Kawasaki Engine Braking Control uses clever electronics to assist with engine braking while driving down hills. Specially designed 26-inch Maxxis tires custom-built for the Teryx LE SGE’s design characteristics are the final ingredient in its amazingly potent handling package.
All in all, this top-line RUV does it all – and does it with custom graphics to boot.
A large selection of authentic Kawasaki Accessories are available through Kawasaki dealers for the 2011 Teryx 750 FI 4×4 LE. As with all off-highway vehicle recreation, Kawasaki encourages RUV drivers to drive responsibly and to respect the environment.
