From ATV Source Magazine:

2012 Kawasaki Teryx 4 Side-x-Side 1st Ride Review

Innovation is the name of the game in the side by side market these days and manufacturers seem to be upping the ante with each new release. This past week our friends over at Kawasaki invited us out to Brimstone Recreation facility near Huntsville, Tennessee to spend some time in their all new Teryx 4 side by side.

Kawasaki is no newcomer to the utility vehicle market considering their original Mule predates any of today’s top selling side by sides, however the Mule lacks the sport and performance aspect offered by most of the UTV’s of today. The original Teryx was Kawasaki’s ticket into the performance side by side market, but with the increasing popularity of UTV’s, the need for more passenger room is being recognized by all manufacturers. Kawasaki is among the first of the manufacturers to do something about it. Enter the Teryx 4.

Going into the event we weren’t really sure what to expect. Was this going to be just a beefed up version of the Mule? Or perhaps a stretched out version of the original Teryx where overall weight and performance would be sacrificed in an attempt to accommodate a couple more passengers. Nothing could have been further from those assumptions.Kawasaki did much more than just make a few changes and add a couple of seats in fact, they completely redesigned it from the ground up. From an all new engine to a completely reconstructed and innovative frame, the Teryx 4 has raised the bar in the multi passenger side by side class.

At the heart of the beast is an all new and improved powerplant that produces around 15% more horsepower than the original Teryx. The added power comes in handy considering the carrying capacity doubles and in the event you find yourself riding without any passengers, well then, more horsepower never hurt anybody! The Teryx 4 didn’t hesitate to climb anything we pointed it at all day. Brimstone offers a wide variety of terrain and there was a good amount of standing water on certain parts of the trail. The Teryx 4 handled everything we threw at it with ease and while we tested in both 2 and 4 wheel drive, we found 2 wheel drive to be more than sufficient for nearly every situation.

The inclusion of a centrifugal clutch paired with a continuously variable transmission (CVT) keeps the power delivery smooth and precise. Starting from a dead stop or manipulating the throttle ever so carefully around tight trees and rocks was amazingly precise. Some side by sides are either on or off in terms of the throttle and can be very jerky at lower speeds when you just barely touch the gas pedal but we were pleased to have immediate yet smooth throttle response any time we stepped on the gas. In one particular off camber, downhill situation we were unable to navigate around a tight S-curve and were forced to make a two-point turn to get through. We pointed the rear of the machine in the right direction and applied the throttle without the least bit of wheel spin. Needless to say we were very impressed; it was like rock crawling in reverse!

The Brimstone Recreation facility was the perfect testing ground for the Teryx 4. While its only in class competitor, the Polaris RZR 4 excels in the dessert and sand dunes, it would have been no match in the tight trails and hilly terrain offered by Brimstone. Despite adding two additional seats (comfortably I might add) the Teryx 4 maintains a relatively tight turning radius and was quite at home on tight trails. We made a few two point turns throughout the day but that was mostly because we were following a 2 seater Teryx for the better part of the day and tried taking its lines. After witnessing our small hiccup, the Teryx 4’s following along behind us made it through nearly every situation without a problem. Chalk that one up to operator error.

We actually managed to get all four wheels off the ground a couple of times and were pleasantly surprised to not be jarred to death upon returning to earth. The suspension soaked up rocks and bumps with ease, however at high speeds you’ll be able to feel some of the bigger bumps. Some of the more sportier side by sides geared towards performance would win in a suspension comparison but then again, most of them only have room enough for two.

Amazingly, Kawasaki engineers managed to maintain similar ergonomics as a two-seater machine while doubling the carrying capacity with only ten inches of added overall length. As mentioned, you won’t have to worry about your knees being crammed in your chest as there is plenty of legroom for both rear passengers. One minor note is a small obstruction on the rear floorboard which forces longer legged passengers to position themselves with their knees pointed slightly to one side rather than straight ahead. Regardless it is unlikely that your knees will be touching the seat in front of you. The rear passengers will also appreciate the grab bar that stretches the entire width of the machine, reminiscent of a ride at an amusement park. The bar looks if it might get in the way or be too close to the passenger, but we preferred it to the traditional handholds that are usually near the outer edges of the cage. The bar allows you to comfortably keep all of your extremities well within the safety of the roll cage.

Kawasaki engineers didn’t merely stretch out the Teryx frame but rather reconstructed it to feature a double-x design to make it stronger and more rigid. A unique feature of the new frame are the exposed outer frame rails along the bottom portion of the machine. At first glance the exposed frame rails might look unfinished or not as clean as other units who’s body work covers all exposed areas of the frame but it all made sense when our hosts encouraged us to use the frame to pivot around tight trees if we found it necessary. The frame rails are the widest point of the machine and offer added protection from rocks or trees on both the underside as well as outer edges of the unit. Rock crawlers will appreciate this feature as it will protect them from body damage if ground clearance is ever an issue. However for our test, the Teryx 4’s 10.8 inches was more than enough for most of the terrain we saw throughout the day.

In terms of comfort features, three of the four models being offered feature electronic power steering. We weren’t able to test the base model, the only one that doesn’t include EPS, however we believe it’s well worth the extra $1000. There was never a threat of losing control or having the steering wheel yanked from your grip by an exposed root or rock as the EPS provides added dampening. When exiting turns quickly we were able to allow the steering wheel to slide freely through our grip without the threat of it over steering. In short, we felt in control at all times thanks to the EPS and we feel it’s well worth the extra money. Between the digital fuel injection, centrifugal clutch and CVT transmission, smooth and precise is the theme of the new Teryx 4 and we think that you’d be short changing yourself to skimp on power steering.

Regardless of which of the four seats you find yourself sitting in, there was nothing that stood out that would make you uncomfortable or possibly fatigued on a longer ride. At a stand still one driver felt the control pedals were a little too far to the right of the cockpit causing the center console to rub against his calf but it seemed to be unnoticeable once he put the UTV in motion.

Overall we felt Kawasaki exceeded expectations and more than satisfied the needs of their target demographic. You can’t please everyone and racers or those content to carve dunes or run wide open in the desert might not find the Teryx 4 to be their cup of tea. We’re confident everyone else will!The folks from Kawasaki explained that the ideal Teryx 4 user is a family looking to explore and experience the outdoors, together. They envision the typical user, a family with small kids or perhaps a group of hunters, loading up a cooler in the storage compartment, which accommodates a 100 qt cooler by the way, and having the freedom to take off for an entire day without having to return because of fatigue or even in need of refueling.

Engineers intended to provide sporty performance and top of the line handling while still providing the additional seating. They did an exceptional job blending the two as not once did we feel like we were driving a four seater side by side. One driver commented that every time he turned around he was surprised to see two extra seats behind him.

Sand duners and desert enthusiasts might prefer the extra horsepower and suspension travel of the Teryxs’ competitors but by and large we felt the Teryx 4 will appeal to a much broader audience. With the longer wheelbase and precise steering and throttle controls, the Teryx 4 will likely be a hit with rock crawlers as well.
You can read more on each machines specifics at the below articles or on Kawasaki’s website but we’d recommend you get yourself into the drivers seat and see for yourself. We did and we love what we found!

Got a close look at a T4 the other day. Very impressed with it. Takes heavy duty to a whole new level in SxS's. Fit and finish is excellent. Kawasaki definately put a big effort into this machine. Looks like they have greatly improved on everything from the standard Teryx. Just an example would be the shifter linkage. Smooth as silk. Seating positions are unbelievably comfortable. More so in the back than the front. Only issues i think might be viewed badly are 1) while the seats are nicely placed to sit up and get a great view, it has got to have raised the center of gravity, meaning more apt to tipping over. The front seats are 2" higher in the machine than the Standard Teryx, and the rear seats are about 2" higher than the front. 2) The front firewall is no longer sealed like the standard Teryx, and there are gaps where mud can get in behind the dash. Looks like not a good way to wash it out either. Other than that, it is outstanding. Check one out if you get a chance.

I saw several T4's at our spring ride at Brimstone and at least one of them went every where we did, I am impressed. If I hadn't added all my mod's I would be looking to trade up myself.However, I'm happy with the two seater I have now and won't be trading anytime soon. Marty and Tonia would look good in a new T4 though, hint,hint...

Wish I would have been around if there were several. I needed to chat with them and pick their brain about product improvement

I have to ask the question..... With only 7.8" of wheel travel how come you are 62" wide?

Overall width 62.0 in.

Has to do with the width of frame section and width of the a-arms. . 8.2 inches in the rear. engineer's wnated the frame to be strong no breaking like other models, and research shows that East riders use on average about 6 inches of total travel in this part of the country.

Have you ever bottomed a RZR s with 12 inches running 15 mph in the woods> No.....your using about 6-7 inches travel max in both the up and down stroke of your suspension.

This is one thing I will have to disagree with ya buddy. With the way I ride I use most of the travel on my machine.

However, I am thinking about a buggy for the family so I will not be riding that hard.

Ronnie what makes you think you can't ride the Teryx4 hard with 8 inches of travel? if a machine is valeved and sprung right you can ride it like this:::::

trail 5 during the Teryx4 press intro, I kinda think it's being ridden pretty dang hard in this vid and the suspensions is doing fine::BTW, this is trail 5.

Danny, Trail 5 is one of the easiest trails at Brimstone. The one and only tough spot is where the wheel travel come into play. The rocks. Just like trail 85, wheel travel helps keep the tires on the ground and the buggy moving forward. Rocks and hill climbs are what I am talking about when I say "riding hard. I can haul ass with the rhino on trail 5 and keep up with most anyone.

However, I do not plan on talking the kids through many rock crawls or large hill climbs so I am thinking to Rex 4 will be great. It has plenty of power and speed to do most anything I need.

The main reason I want a Rex is because I still want a utility vehicle. I will sale the rhino and buy a Rex 4.

I will still keep the RZR XP for 90% of my riding but I would like to have a machine to take the family out in the woods.

OK....did you watch the vid of the stock Teryx4 on one of the KOTH routes? All I'm saying Ronnie is all I read is how everyone seems to be of the opinion that if someone doesnt ride a RZR with 14 inches of travel you can't go anywhere, you need to just stick to easier trails and haul the family, the Teryx 4 will go everywhere a RZR 4 will and some places a RZR 4 wont beacuse of the shorter wheelbase. Go back a read.....Yeah the Teryx4 is a good machine if your not going to ride hard......none of you guys have obviously ever ridden one at Brimstone....All the media said hands down they would rather have the Teryx4 here on the East coast than the RZR4, desert, open terrain RZR4, woods, Teryx4........Oh well, the RZR love affair continues, I'm not upset, I'm just saying Jesus Christ everyone give it a break.

So here we have a vid of a bunch of Teryx 4's some stock travel some long travel on what is considered one of, if not the toughest trails in the country according to many the Rubicon trail......I think the little 8 inch travel stock machines did a pretty ggod job, main thing they ALL made it and made it without breaking. I'm just trying to make a point guys, everyone that has a pre-conceived notion that the Teryx4 can't be ridden on hard trails, this video blows that notion out of the water, again, no broken front diff's, no broken belts, no frame issues, no axles broke, no tie rods, no nothing......All I ask is for everyone to open their eyes and minds and realize that there are other models out there that will take you everywhere your Polaris will all the while taking less money out of your wallet in maintanance....

My Teryx 4 goes anywhere any other sxs will. If I don;t make it they dont eaither. I think if Kawasaki would promote them rather than pretty much throwing them out and saying "here it is if you want it" They would quickly take the place of/or atleast give strong competition to the RZR. I think Kawasaki kind screwed up by waiting so long to come out with something like this. The original Teryx 2 is no comparison really to the new T4 and everyone just has the preconceived notion that they are like the original T2's but with more seats

It doesn't look bad. I'd have to ride in one to see how it compares. I would have to agree with Big R though. Wheel travel does make a difference even in the woods.. I've been in rhino's, 50" RZR, RZR s and now the XP.. Every step up with more travel the ride got better. Can't say it was shocks cause I replaced the shocks and springs in my 50".. Even then a stock S with cheap factory shocks had a better ride.. Same machine only difference was wheel travel. All the machines would make it up the same trails. But the ride was not the same at all. lol and yeah I have bottomed out every RZR I've owned. No I was not going 15mph though. I think we can all agree if we never went over 15mph it really wouldn't matter what machine we had..

As far as the RZR love.. Honestly I could give a chit about polaris.. I think a RZR is an overpriced piece of junk.. But as it stands I think it has the highest fun factor.. If I was buying a two seater tomorrow I'd probably look very hard at the Wild cat X...
