The MULE PRO-FX 1000 HD Edition side x side is a powerful, high-capacity, three-passenger vehicle that’s built to take on the most demanding days. With dependable power and exceptional all-day comfort, this rugged side x side is the perfect companion for work and play. Finish the job with the reliable capability of the MULE PRO-FX 1000 HD Edition.
The compact litre-class engine delivers both high power and high torque, as well as an increased top speed. The mild character, complemented by a CVT (continuously variable transmission), offers driver-friendly throttle response and delivers smooth acceleration and deceleration.
Like the models in the MULE PRO Series, the MULE PRO-FX 1000 HD Edition offers a 453 kg cargo bed capacity, and a 907 kg towing capacity.
Ground clearance 300 mm or greater reduces the chances of the MULE PRO-FX 1000 HD Edition scraping its bottom, which translates to greater accessibility and increased ride comfort.
Kawasaki’s first self-levelling suspension helps keep the vehicle level when carrying a heavy load. When a load compresses the rear suspension, a built-in mechanical pump system automatically pumps up the suspension as the vehicle moves to return the rear of the vehicle to its optimum level. Spreading the weight more evenly benefits both handling and braking performance.
The MULE PRO-FX 1000 HD Edition improves on the acclaimed engine and chassis performance of the MULE PRO Series models with a new, larger-displacement Kawasaki-built engine and a sturdy chassis augmented with longer-travel suspension, increased ground clearance and Kawasaki’s first self-levelling rear suspension.
Compact 35 W outer headlights are complemented by LED inner headlights (16.0 W / 9.4 W). The quadruple headlamps cut a bright path.
Clean dashboard design includes switches for the headlights, selectable 4WD and rear differential lock. Five spaces for additional accessory switches have been prepared.
Black steel front and rear bumpers provide vehicle protection while adding to the tough, high-end image.
The MULE PRO-FX 1000 HD Edition features a front end based on that of the MULE PRO-FXR, including quad headlights. The serious looks reflect the new model’s ability to perform at work sites and in moderate recreation environments, while a silver Kawasaki emblem adds a high-end, premium image.
In addition to its tough engine and rugged frame construction, numerous features (like considerations to prevent the ingress of water and mud, efficient air cleaner design with snorkel intake, etc) add to the MULE PRO-FX 1000 HD Edition’s strong build.
The frame offers a good balance between lateral and torsional stiffness. This delivers high durability while allowing just the right amount of chassis flex to be able to handle the shocks of off-highway riding, ensuring a high level of ride comfort.
Kawasaki MULE side x sides are famous for their strength and durability, and the new MULE PRO-FX 1000 HD Edition is no exception. Like other MULE side x sides in Kawasaki’s line-up, these new flagship series models were built to last in a variety of conditions and are backed by a three-year Kawasaki STRONG limited warranty.
Double-wishbone suspension is used both front and rear to enable each of the wheels to drive over obstacles with minimum effect on the chassis. Longer wheel travel (F: 279 mm; R: 256 mm) contributes to the increased ground clearance as well as ride comfort.
A wide-body chassis enables a roomy interior space that offers the shoulder and legroom for three adults to comfortably sit side-by-side.
Kawasaki’s high-grade electric power steering (EPS) system is speed sensitive, offering light steering effort at low speed, while reducing assistance as vehicle speed increases to ensure responsive steering.
Drivers can set the position of the tilt-adjustable steering wheel to suit their preference, as well as lift it out of the way to facilitate getting in and out of the vehicle.
Easy access to oil filter (and oil dipstick) and air-cleaner filter greatly facilitates maintenance chores. Further, the improved dust resistance of the new intake duct system results in longer maintenance intervals.
Complementing its tilting cargo bed, the the MULE PRO-FX 1000 HD Edition features a bed lift kit that uses a switch-operated hydraulic lift to tilt the cargo bed, offering added convenience. The switch is located below the cargo bed on the left side of the vehicle.
Class-leading comfort has been a hallmark of Kawasaki’s hard-working side x sides. The MULE PRO-FX 1000 HD Edition delivers on that front, with the new, longer-travel suspension further contributing to ride comfort offered by the composed chassis and roomy interior. Creature comforts like EPS, tilt-steering, handy storage spaces and numerous cup holders are complemented by improved maintenance-related elements.
