Kawasaki unveiled Special Edition and Trail Edition KRX 1000’s for 2022.

Kawasaki unveiled the 2022 base, Special Edition and Trail Edition KRX 1000’s. The 2021 KRX 1000 eS with dashboard adjustable Kawasaki Electronic Control Suspension (KECS) is still available.

The base Kawasaki KRX 1000 comes in cool new Sunbeam Red/Metallic Onyx Black and Lime Green/Metallic Onyx Black color schemes. This 68.1 inch wide sport side-by-side is powered by a durable 999cc parallel twin engine, paired with a CVT transmission and centrifugal clutch, the Teryx KRX 1000 has the power to tackle a whooped-out trail and the torque to conquer technical rock crawling sections.

It features on-the-fly electronically selectable 4WD and front differential lock as well as two power modes (Full and Low) that allow the driver to set power delivery to suit preference and conditions. A high-rigidity frame with integrated Roll Over Protection Structure (ROPS) positions the wheels as far apart as possible to provide a sure-footed stance, superb cornering and straight-line stability.

Obstacles on the trail are soaked up by FOX 2.5 Podium shock units with adjustable compression damping and spring preload, which combined with long suspension arms give the Teryx KRX 1000 the longest suspension travel in its class. Large 31-inch MAXXIS Carnivore tires ride over small obstacles with ease, while 15-inch aluminum bealdlock wheels hold the tires in place in off-road riding situations.


The KRX 1000 Special Edition sport side-by-side builds on the base model’s features with a high-grade, award-winning Hifonics® audio system. Complete with 6.5” door speakers and a 12” subwoofer, it offers incredible sound that can be heard – and felt. The compact stereo unit is built into the center console, giving the dash a well-integrated appearance with a new LED screen.


Built with the same high-performance features found on the KRX 1000, the KRX 1000 Trail Edition sport side-by-side adds front and rear sport bumpers, as well as nerf bars on the sides. A KQR™ Sport Roof comes as standard equipment on the Teryx KRX 1000 Trail Edition and helps to shelter passengers from harsh weather and sun.

It also features pre-configured mounts that allow for the addition of up to six accessory LED dome lights. A WARN® VRX 45 Powersport Winch is standard equipment and has 50’ of durable, aircraft grade 1⁄4″ steel rope backed by a 4,500 lb. capacity. (utv)
