ITP Introduces New Tsunami Wheel for ATV and SxS Vehicles

ITP Tsunami Beadlock Wheel
The all-new ITP STORM SERIES Tsunami side-by-side vehicle and ATV wheel
features a classic eight-spoke design, flat black finish, center cap and handsome
milled accents on the beadlock ring and window edges.
Available in Authentic Beadlock and Simulated Beadlock styles

Clinton, Tenn., May 24, 2016 - ITP today announced that it will launch the new "Tsunami" wheel for ATVs and side-by-side vehicles in August of this year. The third wheel in ITP's STORM SERIES product line, the Tsunami comes in two styles and offers a modern take on a classic, eight-spoke wheel design.

ITP Tsunami Beadlock Wheel
The ITP Tsunami UTV / ATV wheel recently underwent five days of rigorous
testing at the 2016 Rally on the Rocks event in Moab, Utah.
"Our third offering in ITP's STORM SERIES line, the Tsunami is a contemporary interpretation of the classic eight-spoke design," said Rhett Turpin, Head of ITP Sales. "It comes in two versions -single beadlock for total tire security and 'simulated' beadlock for value-minded consumers who want that beadlock look."

The Tsunami wheels are expected to arrive in dealerships in August this year. Two sizes will be available for both the beadlock and simulated versions - 14-in. and 15-in. - in all popular bolt patterns.

The lightweight Tsunami wheel is as rugged as they come and incorporates ITP's proprietary "Rock Armor" inner wheel lip to provide vehicle owners with maximum wheel strength against breakage from rocks and debris. The Tsunami's simulated beadlock wheel is further strengthened with "Rock Armor" outer lip protection.

ITP Tsunami UTV Beadlock Wheel

ITP engineers created the Tsunami wheel from the same super-light, superior strength aluminum alloy that's also used in the other two STORM SERIES wheels, the Hurricane and the Tornado. The result is a wheel with unmatched structural integrity and a load capacity rating of 1,200 lbs. Both versions are backed by ITP's Limited Lifetime Warranty.

"Wheel strength is the hallmark of ITP's STORM SERIES wheel line," adds Turpin. "That's why we named each wheel in the STORM SERIES after the most powerful forces in nature. Riders can only conquer the world's most challenging terrain when they use tires and wheels that are up to the task."

MSRP for the simulated beadlock is expected to be in the $110-120 range. The beadlock versions will sell in the $160-195 price point.

Polaris Announces Two North American Camp RZR Events

Camp RZRs
Camp RZR
Minneapolis, May 20, 2016-Polaris RZR® today announced the continuation of two Camp RZR events in North America. Marking the fifth year of the event, this year’s Camp RZRs will be bigger and better than ever, and hosted at Jericho Mountain State Park in Berlin, N.H., and the Glamis Sand Dunes near Brawley, Calif.

“Camp RZR is our way to thank RZRowners and celebrate the off-road lifestyle,” said Mark Epsky, RZR Marketing Manager. “The events have become extremely popular and we have some new and incredible things planned to make this year’s events even bigger.”

Known as a celebration of all things off-road, the first Camp RZR was held Dec. 31, 2012, in the Glamis Sand Dunes. The event was such a success it was repeated in 2013, over Halloween weekend, and every year since. In 2014, Camp RZR was expanded to the United Arab Emirates, followed by a third event in Tennessee.   

This year, the eastern Camp RZR moves to Jericho Mountain State Park. With more than 80 miles of trails within the park and more than 1,000 miles of interconnected trails in New Hampshire, Jericho Mountain State park is a popular off-road destination in New England, making it the perfect place to host Camp RZR. The western Camp RZR will continue to be hosted in the Glamis Sand Dunes which is a wildly popular, West Coast off-road destination.

“While we enjoyed our time in Tennessee, it was our intent, based on feedback fromRZR owners, to move our eastern Camp RZR to a new location in order to allow more riders to experience and be a part of Camp RZR. We are incredibly excited about hosting in New England,” added Epsky.

Both North American Camp RZRs will be bigger and better than ever featuring entertainment, hundreds of thousands of dollars in giveaways, vendors, a kids’ zone, and Polaris staff on hand to answer questions. Additional plans will be announced at a later dateCamp RZR New England will run September 23-24, and Camp RZR Glamis October 28-29.

More information about the upcoming Camp RZRs can be found atwww.camprzr.com, and on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/PolarisRZR.

2017 KAWASAKI MULE SX Family

Kawasaki MULE SX 4x4 XC SE
2017 Kawasaki MULE SX 4x4 XC SE
Kawasaki introduces the new MULE SX family of side x sides, featuring a variety of compact, lightweight models that are capable, durable and reliable, and packed with value.

Your business is growing, but your land isn’t a multi-acre farm—not yet. You need a vehicle that’s going to grow with your needs. A vehicle that will be there when you need it the most, whether it’s your first Mule™ side x side or a part of a fleet. It’s designed to go almost anywhere with its compact size, but pull well above its weight. The S stands for small; the X stands for strong, introducing the Small but Strong MULE SX.

Unlike other models, the MULE SX side x side is designed for modesty. Built for those who need a hard working, go-anywhere machine, but without the size, speed and expense of its bigger MULE™ PRO series. Maybe your farm or business requires more, needing multiple Mules for your fleet, the MULE SX is also a great affordable option and easier to transport when you have multiple units to carry between job sites.
  • Modern MULE PRO-inspired styling
  • Industry-leading 3-year limited warranty 
  • Steel cargo bed, front bumper and ROPS
  • Centralized and ergonomically comfortable controls
  • Compact size for easy transport, maneuverability – fits into the bed of a full-size pickup truck
Size doesn’t always matter, but dependability, durability and strength always does. The newest member of the Mule family, the MULE SX side x side is the little brother with many MULE PRO family styling cues. Like the little brother in the family, it’s here to prove it’s much stronger than its size may convey. Designed to be compact, small enough to fit into the bed of most full-size pickup trucks, but built with the strength and durability that Kawasaki Mule side x sides are known for. The MULE SX can work hard and play hard, get into more compact places and do almost as much as its larger counterparts. The MULE SX is available in six configurations, starting with the standard SX two-wheel-drive model up to the XC options.

Kawasaki MULE SX 4x4
Kawasaki MULE SX 4x4
The pickup-truck style front hood, front grill and headlamp design were modeled after the MULE PRO Series, the flagship models in the Mule lineup. These styling cues give the MULE SX models a tough, rugged appearance. The compact headlights, similar to those found on the Kawasaki Teryx® and Teryx4™ side x sides, also contribute to modern styling.

The dash on all of the models has been redesigned to give it more automotive styling while also making access to the controlsmore driver friendly.

The MULE SX 4x4 XC SE model features four high-intensity LED lamps, while the XC Camo features two LED lamps, both resulting in high-quality looks.

A large-tube steel front bumper is a standard feature, positioned close to the body to give it a highly integrated look. Large fender flares and mud flaps add to the voluminous design while helping to keep mud and rocks from hitting the color molded bodywork.

ENGINE
  • Proven performance
  • Simple, reliable 401cc, 4-stroke OHV engine
  • Tuned for good fuel economy
  • Compact, lightweight and durable design
The engine of the MULE SX side x side is a 401cc, 4-stroke, OHV, air-cooled engine, that’s compact, lightweight and durable. The highly efficient carburetor also helps to improve fuel economy. The 401cc engine is a proven workhorse in the Mule lineup.

The engine’s air supply enters the air cleaner box via a snorkel intake routed through the tubing of the ROPS, ensuring the engine is provided with a steady supply of clean air, even in wet or dusty working conditions. Vehicle speed restricted to 25 mph.

TRANSMISSION & DRIVETRAIN
  • Lockable rear differentials on all models
  • Lockable front limited-slip differentials on 4x4 models
  • Rack and pinion steering for easy maneuverability
  • Hi-Lo dual-range transfer case (except MULE SX 2WD)
All models feature a lockable rear differential, which allows rear wheels to have equal transfer of power for maximum traction in mud or snow. Ground disturbance is minimal when the rear axle is unlocked.

All MULE SX 4x4 models have an easy and simple to use switch to move between 2-wheel and 4-wheel drive located on the dash to the right of the steering wheel. This front differential on the 4x4 models contributes to confident handling over rough terrain, providing great traction with low steering effort, with its limited-slip differential.

The MULE SX Family features a belt-driven automatic transmission with a Hi-Lo dual-range transfer case that delivers excellent off-road capability. Two forward speeds to choose from lend flexibility when working or playing.

CARGO BED & TOWING CAPACITY
  • 400 pound capacity cargo bed
  • Integrated cargo bed rails compatible with KQR™ accessories
  • 1,100-pound towing capacity
  • Diamond-plate steel flat cargo bed
The diamond-plate steel flat bed is designed to maximize the space and the texture black surface helps keep items in place.The special textured black surface is also scratch resistant, contributing to the Mule’s looks and durability. The tailgate’s two-level release system allows for easy opening and closing, also the tilting bed allows for easy access to the engine.

Integrated cargo bed rails are added to the top of the bed adding more surfaces to help tie-down loads. This rail is also compatible with the optional KQR™ accessory mounts with quick release capability—brackets that allow for items like cargo boxes tobe securely mounted into the cargo bed.

CHASSIS
  • Newly designed springs for enhanced comfort
  • Tubular steel frame
  • Ground clearance (6.1-inch SX 2wd Models; 6.7-inch SX 4X4 Models; 8.1-inch XC models)
  • Newly designed tread for tires (4x4 Models)
The MULE SX Family has a highly durable ladder-type tubular steel frame designed for an ideal blend of rigidity and ride comfort. The resulting frame delivers high durability while allowing just the right amount of chassis flex to be able to provide a comfortable ride off-road.

Rack-and-pinion steering provides precise, easy handling and a tight turning radius. Independent front suspension withMacPherson struts allows each wheel to track over uneven ground for maximum traction. Minimal wheel camber change throughout the suspension stroke facilitates easy handling and maneuverability.

Both the Kawasaki MULE SX 4x4 and MULE SX 4x4 SE side x sides feature meaty 24-inch tires with a new tread patterns thatprovide great off-road traction, contribute to ground clearance and complement the tough, rugged styling.

Front and rear brake drum seals are triple-lipped for water and mud resistance. Skid plates for the front differential, engine and rear differential are fitted as standard equipment. An optional trailer hitch is available for the MULE SX 4X4 and 4x4 SE models, as part of the selection of Kawasaki Genuine Accessories, but comes standard on the MULE SX 4x4 XC SE.
26-inch Tires

THE SX XC ADVANTAGE
  • Bigger tires (26-inch)
  • Bigger wheels (12-inch)
  • Sportier looks
  • Larger ground clearance (8.1-inches)
Like the Mule side x side, you play as hard as you work. Enter the MULE SX 4x4 XC. The MULE SX 4x4 XC models are designed for those wanting a Mule for recreational purposes. Whether it’s hunting, fishing or just plain exploring, this vehicle is designed to go anywhere with ease. All models feature larger wheels and tires than the standard SX versions, to supply ample ground clearance and improve traction, along with all models featuring 4x4 standard. Models with 4x4 allow for lockable front and rear differentials for managing rough terrain.

The 26-inch (22- or 24-inch on SX models) bias-ply tires contribute to improved off-road handling and add to the rugged image. Wheels feature larger 12-inch rims instead of 10-inch. The tread is not only more aggressive, but also wider for a better footprint. While tire tread is larger, the body size remains unchanged, so the MULE SX XC models can still be transported in the back of a full sizepickup truck.

FROM THE COCKPIT
  • 16 gallon front storage, with removable lid
  • Dual cup holders
  • Glove box and DC socket
The MULE SX features an automotive-style dash console with a thick-gripped steering wheel for comfort and ease of use.

Seatbelts are retractable for ease of use. The bed is separated from the cabin by a grid-style cargo screen for better visibility, mounting surface and to help secure the payload.

The seat material has superb elasticity, offering increased comfort and holding performance. The material is also resistant to cold, allowing it to maintain its suppleness when temperatures drop and reducing the chance of tearing/ripping when exposed to cold temperatures.

Increased preload for the front suspension results in a flatter front-rear balance; softer rear settings offer increased ride comfort in the MULE SX’s most commonly encountered riding situations.

ACCESSORIES

A wide variety of Kawasaki Genuine Accessories are available for all Mule side x sides. The MULE SX side x side is built with the expectation that an owner will add accessories, since the vehicle comes standard with pre-recessed slots for accessories switches already in the dash.

Polaris Defense Unveils Turbo Diesel MRZR

Turbo Diesel Polaris MRZR
Turbo Diesel Polaris MRZR
MINNEAPOLIS (May 18, 2016) — Polaris Defense, a division of Polaris Industries Inc., today announced the addition of a high-performance MRZR turbo diesel (MRZR-D) to its MRZR off-road vehicle lineup. MRZRs have redefined ultralight, off-road mobility for military vehicles and are mission critical for expeditionary forces in the U.S. and more than 20 allied countries to meet mission demands and threats while forward deployed. Polaris Defense will publicly debut the MRZR-D at the 2016 Special Operations Forces Industry Conference (SOFIC), in Tampa, Fla., May 24-26, and at CANSEC 2016, in Ottawa, Ontario, May 25-26.

Turbo Diesel Polaris MRZR


To be as expeditionary as the warfighters that use them, MRZR vehicles are V-22 helicopter transportable and can be configured a number of ways, including two-, four- and six-person. The turbo-charged diesel engine in the new MRZR-D has been engineered to meet the performance and physical specs of the original MRZR vehicles. While many key features – like the dimensions, payload, towing, ground clearance, accessories, handling and other features – remain the same, Polaris incorporated feedback from the field in the new product, including updated occupant seating space, ergonomics and sightlines. The MRZR-D also provides increased auxiliary power and greater range, making it even more effective.

“The new turbo diesel powertrain is significant in reducing the logistics burden for select U.S. services and many foreign militaries that have strict requirements for diesel fuel,” said Jed Leonard, senior manager, Polaris Defense. “And as importantly for our military customers, we’ve engineered this diesel powertrain to meet the same mission requirements and extreme off-road performance that Polaris and the MRZR are trusted for in peacetime, security operations, and conventional military missions.”

Turbo Diesel Polaris MRZR

“Throughout the last three years, we’ve had an open dialogue with Polaris about how we were using the MRZRs, and enhancements that would help us complete our missions more effectively. This has been very beneficial to us in the program office and the warfighters as Polaris has incorporated our requests. In the case of the MRZR-D, we suggested changes to improve sightlines and ergonomics which were incorporated,” said Brendon Reedy, LTATV acquisition program manager, PEO-SW/FOSOV, USSOCOM. “It’s nice to see commercial companies such as Polaris continue to invest in the Defense industry and we’re happy those investments have resulted in a turbo-diesel MRZR.”

Turbo Diesel Polaris MRZR

Production continues for the original gas powertrain MRZR 2 and MRZR 4 under the LTATV program for USSOCOM and other international contracts. Orders for the 4-seat turbo-charged MRZR-D are being accepted now, with production and deliveries also starting this year. The MRZR-D will be in Polaris Defense booth #1735 at SOFIC in Tampa and booth #331 at CANSEC in Ottawa.

Turbo Diesel Polaris MRZR


Polaris Defense vehicles deliver a coveted combination of deployability, versatility and off-road mobility, forged from more than 60 years of off-road vehicle experience that is simply unmatched. From the rugged Sportsman MV 850 to the modular and nimble MRZR, to the trophy truck inspired and ultimate off-road payload capable DAGOR, the enhanced tactical mobility provided by Polaris vehicles gives an advantage back to dismounted troops, allowing formations to move faster, carry more and significantly reduce combat fatigue. And because the vehicles are in service throughout the world, there is a high degree of interoperability and commonality among U.S. and allied forces. An established network of more than 1,400 Polaris dealers and distributors provide military vehicle training, service and support worldwide.
