Kawasaki has unleased even more capability and comfort with this latest release of 2021 (and 2022) vehicles.

The fourth iteration of the incredible Teryx KRX 1000, the eS, adds Kawasaki Electronic Control Suspension to a side‐by‐side for the first time ever.

Dual sport lovers will rejoice at the return of the KLR650, now with fuel injection, larger brakes, more generator output and beefier components all around, as well as a new feature‐packed Adventure model.

The Teryx and Teryx4 family is bolstered by the introduction of the new Teryx S LE and Teryx4 S LE models, which feature all new suspension geometry for greater comfort and capability.

Rounding out the release, Kawasaki’s playful and accessible KLX230R opens up off‐road adventure for even more riders courtesy of a new low‐seat model, the KLX230R S.

2021 Kawasaki Teryx KRX 1000 eS
First ever side by side with Kawasaki Electronic Control Suspension and a 7” TFT screen
What’s new:
 Kawasaki Electronic Control Suspension (KECS) with FOX 2.5 Live Valve Internal Bypass shocks
 7‐inch LCD TFT instrumentation screen

The new Teryx KRX 1000 eS is the fourth in the Teryx KRX 1000 line up, and the first‐ever side by side fitted with Kawasaki Electronic Control Suspension. KECS, paired with FOX 2.5 Live Valve Internal Bypass shocks provide unrivalled control and capability for side‐by‐side owners.

Using a switch mounted on the dashboard, drivers can select from three suspension modes to suit the terrain and vehicle speed: Normal, for a variety of riding conditions and good stability in corners; Firm, for higher‐speed trail runs (over 65 km/h), and Soft, which is ideal for more technical off‐road adventure like rock crawling and climbing.

The eS features the same core chassis and engine as the highly regarded KRX 1000 and adds a

Kawasaki Quick Release (KQR) sport roof and front bumper for additional protection, plus an aggressive new graphics package. A bright new, modern, and easy to read 7‐inch TFT colour dash keeps riders connected to their KRX like never before.

For the first time ever on a Kawasaki side by side we see the inclusion of a large 7” high‐grade full‐colour TFT LCD screen. It transforms the KRX 1000 eS interior into a modern cockpit. Multiple selectable display modes offer information at a glance and provide a level of entertainment for passengers as they navigate their course.

Three selectable display modes (Digital, Analogue, Simple) allow drivers to select how they want to view their vehicle information. The screen background and brightness can be adjusted as well.

The instrument’s large screen size makes it ideal for infotainment functions. Features like the Suspension Monitor, Audio rack display†, and Vehicle‐mounted cameras (up to two accessory cameras can be linked to the display) offer both informa on and entertainment value for riders. †When linked to an iOS‐type smartphone.

A longer swingarm and integrated rear subframe help contribute to the KLR’s increased resilience, while revised aluminium carrier mounts provide better security when carrying luggage on all models. Revisions to the clutch and gear box further improve the KLR’s famed indestructability.
