Trail riding among good company can be an extremely enriching and pleasant experience. Polaris was first to bank on this new concept with their successful RZR4 and others joining in was to be expected. The Teryx4 looks very similar to its predecessor, but is very different in many ways. It has always been recognized for its fun inducing performance and by adding two extra seats; the fun can now be shared with family or a few friends. It comes in a basic form, and three others offering a new level of ease and comfort, with Kawasaki’s Electric Power Steering (EPS) system.
A fun and quick pace will be reached without just slamming the pedal and waiting for things to happen. Their trusted 749cc engine was entirely revised to provide 15% more power. The key element is of course is the suspension though. No use having loads of power if the vehicle bounces around too much. High-performance, single-chamber gas-charged shocks take care of that business and are said to keep a good hold on the ground. Can’t wait to find out for ourselves! 
Team Green engineers went back to the drawing boards to figure out what was needed to create a safe and highly capable four-seat rec/utility Side by Side. This pretty much meant redesigning the Teryx machine from A to Z, with an all-new chassis capable of handling the extra load and a thoroughly reworked V-twin engine. Through precise computer-assisted analysis and lots of testing in the toughest conditions imaginable, they ended up with a totally new approach to Side by Side chassis design, using a cross-beam configuration as the main part of the structure. The Double-X frame design provides more torsional rigidity than the ladder-style frame of the two-seater Teryx.
A heightened level of class is present, with a car-like feel to the gear selector and hand operated park brake. The cup holders just forward of those are close enough to reach with an arm stretch and deep but a rubber something to hold your water bottle down would have made them perfect.
Choose 2WD, 4WD or even more traction with the front differential lock with the simple "turn like a key" style electric switch, Kawasaki’s very solid continuously variable transmission will take care of the rest, transferring power to the ground in smoother fashion with the new clutch eliminating the shock of the CVT belt engaging.
Short turning radius, perfectly sealed rear wet brake and front hydraulic disc brakes that stop you on a dime, sport-inspired suspension, good power, plus room for four. Suddenly the Teryx name takes on a whole new meaning! One that can be truly desirable for people looking to upgrade their old golf kart shaped multi-passenger off-road vehicle.
The safety of your loved ones should be your first priority. Wear all the recommended gear and never attack obstacles or turns, with aggressiveness. Always brake before you turn! It is a basic rule of thumb that you might remember from your driving course, which becomes all the more important off-road.
