Kawasaki Mule Utility Vehicle - 2017 Mule SX XC

Utility Vehicle

Kawasaki’s compact MULE models are equipped with everything they need to get the job done. Japanese durability ensures these models are built tough. Revamped for 2017, the new MULE SX XC model features the rugged styling of the PRO Series models, giving it a strong MULE family resemblance. A number of other PRO Series inspired features increase convenience.  The line-up includes two variations: the standard model Mule SX (2WD) offer highly reliable performance in work situations; the “Bigfoot” MULE SX XC with selectable 2WD or 4WD, high and low range and locking rear differential provides added traction and increased utility potential. Kawasaki’s “little” MULE is very capably meet market needs for lightweight, compact utility vehicles capable of filling a variety of roles. Robust construction and reliable components ensure the durability to get the job done day after day, while enjoying the great outdoors on weekends. With large wheels, tyres and 4WD  the “Bigfoot” XC model is better able to ride over obstacles, increasing their potential for leisure activities. 26” bias-ply tyres contribute to superior off-road handling. The massive tyres also add to the rugged, sporty image. Wheels feature larger rims: 12” instead of 10”. Wider track offered by the larger tyres contributes to riding stability.
