FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
2015 KAWASAKI BRUTE FORCE® 300
The 2015 Brute Force 300 ATV continues to impress with its Compact Package
and Big Fun personality
For 2015, the Kawasaki Brute Force® 300 continues to impress its riders with all the
strength, durability and functionality that defines the rugged nature of a Brute Force
ATV. A practical price coupled with excellent performance and dependability marks out
the Brute Force 300 over its closest competition.
The Brute Force is also built tough enough to handle loads of fun on the trails and
years of chores on the farm. It does all this while also offering an accessible and fun-toride feel that can make even the toughest chores a pleasure!
POWERTRAIN
This versatility can be attributed to the easily accessible low- and mid-range torque
generated by its powerful, liquid-cooled, 271cc four-stroke engine. With a broad power
range, riders will be grinning the instant they apply the throttle. This responsive
powerplant complements the sturdy chassis, making for efficient work and effortless
adventuring.
A Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) is partnered with a centrifugal clutch to
help route power to the rear wheels. The optimal CVT ratios suit a wide range of
conditions and help provide just the right amount of engine braking, which under certain
conditions helps slow the vehicle and reduce stress when negotiating tricky downhill
trails.
BRAKES & TIRES
Hydraulically activated triple disc brakes, one disc for each front wheel and a third fitted
to the rear axle, allow for maximum braking power. All three 180mm discs are squeezed
®

by single-piston calipers, which can be operated through convenient handlebarmounted levers. The rear brake can also be modulated with a convenient right-side foot
pedal.
Joint research between Kawasaki and Maxxis® has led to the development of tires
that allow for maximum traction when accelerating or braking. The Brute Force 300’s
chassis works with the Maxxis tires to help provide balanced handling from the ground
up. The result is great performance on the trails and optimal wear characteristics that
help reduce tire replacement costs.
SUSPENSION & STYLING
The Brute Force 300’s double wishbone suspension is responsible for much of this
balanced handling, with five-way adjustable front shocks and a similarly adjustable
single rear damper working through a swingarm.
Damping and spring rates have been optimized to allow for maximum comfort in a
variety of conditions, while one of the widest stances in its class enhances steering
capabilities and helps provide confidence-inspiring handling.
Surrounding all this modern technology is the Brute Force 300’s strong styling, which
is modeled after its larger Brute Force brothers. Whether you call it family resemblance
or sibling rivalry, the result is plenty impressive, with tall, beefy fenders that offer superb
protection from mud and debris, and angular styling that appears both modern and
aggressive.
Finishing off the styling are Super Black and Bright White colors, which make this
vehicle stand out in the crowd.
ERGONOMICS & CREATURE COMFORTS
Riders of all sizes will enjoy generous ergonomics, with a wide handlebar for easy
turning and half-waffle grips for enhanced comfort after hours in the saddle. Weights on
the handlebar ends help reduce the amount of vibration transmitted to the rider’s hands.
The saddle sports a flat profile and super-thick cushioning – just the thing when you
have a full day of riding ahead.
The Brute Force 300 ATV sports many other features, including multi-function digital
instrumentation that displays all manner of useful information, a handy DC electrical

socket to charge your mobile device, (if you can find a signal), a gate-style shifter and a
handy parking brake.
There is loads of overall carrying capacity, too – 44 lb of capacity in the front rack
and 66 lb in the rear, as well as a pair of handy compartments, one up front and another
built into the right front fender. Towing capacity is a surprisingly strong 500 lb, and
there’s even extra space and a standard winch mounting bracket located behind the
front grille.
As if an electric push-button starter wasn’t convenient enough, the Brute Force 300
ATV includes a backup recoil unit for maximum starting convenience. Meanwhile, the
sturdy footpeg/floorboard design does double duty, offering riders plenty of room for
their feet and helping increase the Brute Force 300’s splash resistance when the going
gets sloppy. Finally, a 3.2-gallon fuel tank means this stellar combination of good times
and utility will last a long time between fill-ups.
The overall result is a compact ATV that is unmatched by the competition. While it is
not a big-bore monster ATV, the Brute Force 300 has the strength to deliver plenty of
power where it’s needed and has the ability to tackle just about anything that man or
mother nature can throw at it.
ACCESSORIES
