Kawasaki is a company on the move. They’re constantly tweaking their ATV and Side x Side lineups to make every model better, and since the overall number of Kawasaki models is a little smaller than some competitors, they can really hone the fine details that can make or break a design.

If you own an Arctic Cat 400 or Suzuki Eiger 400, chances are that you’ve experienced or at least heard of the flywheel failure that plagues these otherwise great ATVs. One minute you’re riding along and everything is running smoothly, and out of nowhere and for no apparent reason your engine coughs and you roll to a stop. You know you’re not out of fuel, but it doesn’t take long to realize you are out of spark, and that points to the dreaded electrical gremlins.

You never really know a machine until you spend time with it on your own turf.  When KYMCO released their innovative UXV 450i more than a year ago we were impressed.  The new mid-sized machine looked great, had several innovative features, and it was an all-new chassis.  We knew there was more to discover with the 450i though, and we couldn’t wait to get it on the trail and to work.
