Ryan Villopoto's Kawasaki Teryx4
UTV of the Month for January 2012

This incredible Kawasaki Teryx4 was built forMonster Energy Kawasaki rider Ryan Villopoto.The Teryx4 was a gift from Team Green Kawasaki to cap offone of the most accomplished seasons in history, where Villopoto won the AMA/FIM World Supercross Championship, AMA Motocross Championship, Motocross of Nations Championship, and the Monster Energy Cup. Each accomplishment was hard fought as both supercross and motocross championship battles came down to the last round with RV coming out on top. Villopoto represented Team USA in France where they won the MXoN title. To top off the season, he swept all three motos in the inaugural Monster Energy Cup to earn the cash reward of $1,000,000.

Ryan was presented with the keys to his new Teryx4 before the start of the 2012 season at Kawasaki headquarters’ in Irvine, CA.

Ryan’s Teryx4 saw some action in Anaheim where Ryan kicked off 2012 just like he left 2011—a winner. The Teryx4 was rolled out, complete with a few Monster Energy girls and Team Green’s Reid Nordin for a parade lap after his impressive win.

The Teryx4 is an all new model for Kawasaki in 2012.  Kawasaki didn’t just bolt two extra seats to the Teryx 750’s chassis and call it a day. Engineers figured out exactly what was needed to do the four-seat Rec/Utility concept right, redesigning the entire machine from tip to tail with an all-new chassis and a thoroughly reworked V-twin engine pumping out extra power for the additional load the Teryx4 will gladly carry. With room for four, this means twice the personal payload and twice the fun. Especially when you need to haul around three Monster Energy girls!

Obviously, Ryan’s weapon of choice is his Kawasaki KX™450F, but we think he will have a bunch of fun after he gets behind the wheel of his new Teryx4.
