Kawasaki Heavy Industries, Ltd. announced today the launch of the 2020 TERYX KRX 1000, a fun new trail adventure model, into North America’s growing Sport Side x Side market. Sales in the United States and Canada will commence in early October 2019.

In recent years, the demand for Sport Side x Side models has been growing, especially in North America, and continued growth in this market is expected. Complementing existing recreation-focused TERYX Series models, Kawasaki’s newest Side x Side, the TERYX KRX 1000, is a trail adventure model designed for sporty off-road riding in the woods and on rock trails. In addition to toughness, durability and reliability inherited from the TERYX Series, its newly designed engine and frame offer superb capability and superior comfort.

The 999 cm3 liquid-cooled, 4-stroke, DOHC 8-valve Parallel Twin engine delivers strong power and torque, and is paired with a CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) and centrifugal clutch to realize excellent controllability.

The chassis features a frame that integrates the ROPS (Rollover Protection Structure) to achieve high rigidity. The suspension’s high-performance shock absorber units and long suspension arms offer superb ground-following performance and off-road capability.

Further, a roomy cabin with tall doors and high-backed bucket seats contributes to ride comfort.
