Mule Pro-FXR

Following multiple accolades for its Mule Pro series, Kawasaki has upped its game once again with the addition of the Mule Pro-FXR side x side to the 2018 lineup. The new Mule Pro-FXR features increased recreational abilities and premium styling that further establishes the full-size, compact side x side as the customer’s dependable work partner.

Developed alongside the Pro-FXT and Pro-FX models, the new Mule Pro-FXR side-by-side shares the same engine and smooth acceleration, meaning it’s still the fastest most powerful Mule ever built, with independent suspension, powerful disc brakes, effective engine braking and Kawasaki’s acclaimed EPS, speed-sensitive power steering. All of that is packaged into a more compact design, shorter than the other Mule Pro models, with improved ground clearance and turning radius.

Designed to appeal to someone who likes to play as a hard as they work, the styling of the Mule Pro-FXR side-by-side has a tough, truck like appearance with a painted hood and grill, low-profile LED inner and halogen outer headlights, front and rear bumpers as well as seating capacity for three in its contoured two-tone seats. While it has a recreational side, the Mule Pro-FXR is still built Kawasaki Strong with steel cargo bed that has a 1,000-pound carrying capacity (600-pound carrying capacity in California) and the ability to tow up to 2000 pounds.

With this much capability, the Mule Pro-FXR is sure to impress your neighbors, even if the closest one is a half-mile away.

The Mule Pro-FXR features premium styling with standard features including painted bodywork, contoured two-tone seats, cast aluminum wheels, rear bumper and finished rear wheel wells; an 812cc three-cylinder fuel injected engine that offers plenty of power with smooth acceleration; and nimble handling for trails with a tight 14.1-foot turning radius.

The Mule Pro-FXR is assembled with foreign and domestic parts in Lincoln, Nebraska as a part of Kawasaki’s expansive side x side family that continues to be Kawasaki Strong. Built strong to play and work hard, while backed by a factory three-year limited warranty.

The Mule Pro-FXR will be available in Atomic Silver and Candy Persimmon Red with an MSRP to be announced later.
