Compact Utility Vehicle Is Ready for the Back Country

The Mule 610 4×4 XC utility vehicle features a dirt-worthy design, and can easily transport two people seeking to go farther afield than the average job site. And with an XC designation revealing its off-road motives, the Mule 610 4×4 XC is loaded with great features and rugged off-road styling designed to hold up better to the rigors of back-country driving.

This Mule’s off-road ability is enhanced by aggressive, 26-inch Maxxis Bighorn 2.0 radial tires, each of which is mounted on a 12-inch wheel. A load of features, including a slightly wider track and ground clearance, complement the Mule 610 4×4 XC’s bold nature, infusing it with a healthy dose of what can only be described as cool factor.

The standard Mule 610 4×4 can go just about anywhere, but the Mule 610 4×4 XC takes that functionality quite a few steps further. Not only do those burly 26-inch Maxxis tires provide loads more traction, their extra width increases the track by 1.3 inches. Their greater height also gives the Mule 610 4×4 XC a full 8.1 inches of ground clearance. Combined with longer front and rear suspension, this helps the operator drive over obstacles, while standard skid plates help protect vital systems.

When designing the Mule 610 4×4 XC, Kawasaki engineers made room for those large tires by kicking the front bumper forward 1.2 inches. And while they were at it, the team added sporty graphics, a comfortable seat covered in a pliable material and a small-diameter sport steering wheel lifted straight from the Kawasaki Teryx.

In spite of its wide-ranging capabilities and radical design, you can be sure of the Mule 610 4×4 XC’s reliable and economical drivetrain. A durable, 401cc fan-cooled overhead-valve engine mated to a continuously variable transmission (CVT) feeds power to all four wheels as needed, and simple automotive controls mean it couldn’t be much easier to operate. An enrichening system partially opens the throttle for easy engine starts, hot or cold, and the Mule can be started in forward (Hi or Lo) or reverse gear, provided the brake pedal is applied. Select 2WD or 4WD and away you go.

MacPherson strut front suspension and rack-and-pinion steering combine great bump absorption with light handling, while the mid-engine layout and swingarm rear suspension provide plentiful traction in back. A powerful braking system brings it all to a reliable halt.

As fun as it looks, the Mule 610 4×4 XC is all about hard work. A special black-texture paint applied to its 400-pound-capacity all-steel tilting cargo bed allows even greater aesthetics and durability, while a 1,100-pound towing capacity means you can haul whatever gear you need. Dual cup holders help keep riders hydrated while on the clock, a large glove box can carry more than just gloves, and the front hood pops open to reveal more than 12 gallons worth of storage. Popular accessories include an enclosed cab, snow plow, winch and soft or hard tops, all available through Kawasaki dealers.
