October 7, 2019 is when the 2020 Kawasaki KRX Sport Side x Side will make its world debut.

After starting out as rumors and later seen in patent drawings discovered by ATV.com, now an official teaser video from Kawasaki USA confirms its arrival.

Few details can be gathered from it. What can, from the front-end silhouette, are proportions similar to the vehicle in the patent drawings and specs typical of a sport UTV. Along with an engine sound clip that's fitting for a model expected to be called the KRX 1000.


What we can expect to release so far, are models using the trademarked names KRX and Teryx KRX (KRX 1000?).

For everything else, the patent images reveal a lot, with some features that its Honda Talon rival also has like; an extensive roll cage setup, small cargo bed, doors, front/rear suspension with more travel than the Teryx, generous approach and departure angles, two seats, and many more.

From launch the KRX should be available in the U.S. & Europe as its where trademarks were filed.

If rumors of KRX's arriving in dealers by late Sept are true, prior to that a lot of info should release.
Keep in touch with your local dealers for exact dates. Haven't seen any myself and apparently they haven't been given information from Kawasaki. Almost all deposits happening don't go any further than the dealership. Kawi hasn't opened their books.

I keep asking and don't get any information back.

Will continue to be on the look out.

Kawasaki has been known to be tight-lipped and only reveal info at the actual launch.

I'm sure dealers already know a lot but are under embargo.
Rarely does anyone speak out under those conditions.

As for the reveal. Powertrain is my biggest concern, its the missing piece. Everything else can be figured out.

The KRX isn't going to be the only thing that Kawasaki is going to unveil on the 11th. They have a bunch of stuff that they're going to reveal in the next couple of months.

I always seen the need for launching a sport side-by-side in a lower CC/cheaper segment. Maybe its what's hiding towards the back?

I assume that means two new sxs's? Possibly a 50" and a 64"? I'm a dirt bike guy also so you m hoping one of those is a replacement for the KLR and a real Enduro bike as well. As you can tell I'm excited on several fronts.

That would be ideal, mild and wild configurations like what's already done in this segment. Aside from the Teryx KRX which fundamentally can't even fill the mild spot.

If there's two versions of the KRX like that right out of the gate it would really put the competition on notice.

I work for a Kawasaki dealer in connection with a lot of other dealers around here, We know the same as you guys do, Even the Area rep doesn't know anything, he only heard of a possible price range from higher up.

Wow Kawasaki is really keeping this under wraps then. If that's the case, what would you want to see from the KRX when it gets unveiled in a couple of weeks?

Maybe I'm overthinking this but isn't that a bit concerning that even the area rep doesn't know what's going on?

We are hoping for something in the 120 to 130hp range like the Wildcat XX n/a for the first year, we wished it was turbo or supercharged but don't think it will be for now. 3 cylinder is a must.

New to the forum, found these on FB this morning. I like what I see so far but I'm curious about the power plant. Might have me dumping the PoPo and going green again!
