2 March 2012 2012 KVF300 awarded "Best-Intro-Class Utility ATV" by ATV Illustrated Magazine

The brand-new Kawasaki KVF300 sport utility ATV earned the coveted “ATV of the Year” award from ATV Illustrated magazine immediately following its press introduction and magazine test rides.
This major accomplishment was made possible by the KVF300's (Brute Force 300 in the U.S.A.) blend of rugged good looks, sporty performance, surprising comfort, excellent fit-and-finish, and outstanding value.

Here’s what the editors at ATV Illustrated had to say about the 2012 Kawasaki Brute Force 300: “The old saying is, “Good things come in small packages,” and one of the best examples of that in the off-road world is the new Kawasaki Brute Force 300.”

“Though only slightly smaller than the other Brute Force models, it’s a huge overachiever.”

“...the fit and finish is OUTSTANDING! Mating surfaces fit together perfectly and seams are extremely tight, especially in the area between the seat and the fuel tank.”

“The first time we climbed aboard the Brute Force 300, we were comfortable and it was easy to reach all the controls.”

“Since it’s a little smaller than most full-sized ATVs, it’s super easy to maneuver through the woods and it responds well to rider input. It performs and delivers features of high-end machines at an intro machine price.”

“Because of all it has going for it, the Kawasaki Brute Force 300 is our pick for the Best intro Class Utility ATV and ATV."
