2010 Kawasaki Bayou® 250
A tough worker, with user friendly size, price and performance
Rugged and economical, Kawasaki’s Bayou® 250 ATV personifies the old adage, “great things come in small packages.” Equipped with a long-lasting, electric-start four-stroke engine, five-speed transmission with reverse and steel cargo racks, the Bayou 250 is synonymous with four wheel value.
Affordable and easy to operate, the Bayou 250 utilizes a trail ready independent A-arm front suspension and a semi-independent multi-link rear suspension. This design equals a smooth, compliant ride without any of the complexity or maintenance required by a fully independent design.
Its features include triple drum brakes, tow hitch bracket, easy-to-read fuel gauge and a 12-volt accessory connector to provide quick and easy power to your electronic devices. The steel cargo racks on the Bayou 250 can handle a combined weight of 110 pounds and it can tow 450 pounds. Owners can increase the versatility of their Bayou ATV, by utilizing an extensive line of Authentic Kawasaki Accessories, available from their local Kawasaki dealer.
As with all off-highway vehicle recreation, Kawasaki encourages ATV riders to ride responsibly and to respect the environment. Kawasaki will pay first-time buyers of a new Kawasaki ATV $100 for completing an ATV rider safety course conducted by the ATV Safety Institute (ASI). Interested consumers can call ASI toll-free at 800-887-2887.
