2022 Kawasaki Side-by-Side – A look back at what’s new

For 2022, Kawasaki’s sporty line of side-by-side vehicles is back. The Teryx KRX 1000 is ready for any adventure. As one of the most durable and reliable machines in the sport side-by-side category, the 2022 Teryx KRX 1000 line is built to take on the toughest trails.

The Teryx KRX 1000 is built for adventure and conquering tough terrain. Powered by a durable 999cc parallel-twin engine, the Teryx KRX can tackle the most technical trails of sand, mud or rocks. It features electronically selectable 4-wheel drive on the fly and a front differential lock, as well as two power modes (Full and Low) that allow the rider to adjust the power delivery to suit their preferences and conditions.

Available in 2-seat Teryx and 4-seat Teryx4 configurations, both models feature the powerful 783cc twin-cylinder engine. Electric power steering (EPS) is standard across the lineup, as is a three-year limited warranty. Only the two-seat S and S LE versions return in 2022. For the four-passenger versions, only the Teryx 4 and Teryx 4 S LE models are available in Canada. They are equipped with a Fox suspension and specially designed A-arms to maximize ground clearance.

As for the Mule family, the only change for 2022 is the absence of the Mule Pro-FX EPS model. In fact, it is only offered with the LE package, which is making a comeback since it was not offered in 2021. This family offers many models of 2, 3, 4 or 6 passengers. There is also a choice of gasoline or diesel engines. There is something for everyone!

Finally, we notice that most of the 2022 models have the same colors and decals as their 2021 counterparts. Thus, we should not expect any changes in the look of these models.

Below are the specifications of a few model families. For more information, visit the Kawasaki website by clicking here.

Teryx KRX 1000 Sport

Designed to give its passengers a strong adrenaline rush, the Teryx KRX 1000 has everything to satisfy performance-hungry riders. Its only flaw is its width, which exceeds what is allowed in Quebec.
