KAWASAKI

Outdoor Life - - GEAR -

the Pro-fx eps le is Kawasaki’s big­gest, bad­dest Mule yet—with “big” be­ing the key word here. Mea­sur­ing nearly 12 feet long and stand­ing al­most 7 feet tall, this ma­chine is mas­sive. In open ter­rain, it is a work­horse. But in tight quar­ters, its size was a hin­drance.

Its 3-cylin­der, 812cc en­gine pro­duces 48 ft.-lb. of torque at

3,500 rpm, and does so in whis­per-like fash­ion. With noise lev­els of just 74.2 deci­bels in the cab and 89.5 deci­bels while cruis­ing at 20 mph, the unit was one of the qui­etest ma­chines we tested.

We liked its smooth ride, but its im­mense bulk hurt han­dling.
