I'm wanting to pull the trigger on a '21 KRX tomorrow as there getting scarce in my area and the one I want (green) just had a pending deal with another buyer fall through. I'm wanting to lock it up with a deposit and do the deal in a few days as the dealer is 4 hours away. It will our our first Kawasaki!

I'm checking on from the high country (8'500) within minutes some awesome riding. As in out my driveway to a ghost town less than a mile away and additional miles and miles of double track trails.. I saw my first KRX at the dealer a few weeks ago when I was having my Pioneer P1000 serviced.

It was love at first sight!

Unfortunately, the KRX I saw was customers that had hit a tree stump at 60 with the real wheel and had ripped the trailing arm mount off. Amazingly, there was no other damage. I am a big guy(6'-4") And mid #300s) and the interior looks great size wise. I really wanted to climb in and try it for size, but no way would I do it without the owners permission. My dealer where the KRX I'm making a comittment on is over 120 miles away and there is not a single KRX near by to sit in. Any thoughts on big and tall fitment in this rig?

Great site and thanks in advance.

I just purchased a 2021 Trail Edition and being 6’4 and around 260, leg room was a big selling point. The KXR was much roomier than the Razor I originally wanted. Happy with it so far

Thanks so much for the feedback! I've looked at a lot of sport type UTV cabs and the KRX cab size is impressive.

Oh yeah, you’re gonna love it! I’m 6’4” 325# and it has plenty of shoulder width, and some good leg room.
I did however fabricate a set of brackets for the seat to give me 2 more inches of leg room, but that’s up to you if you need it or not.

Sigh, I've, spent most of my life moving seats and fabricating "big and tall" mods for stuff designed for size normies. I saw the posts on this form dealing with this so I figure that will be the first thing that I do when my machine is configured in two weeks or so.

Just pulled the trigger 5 minutes ago! Now it's wait time (est. max 2 weeks) for my optioms package parts to arrive and be installed.

Hope to be able to contribute as I learn. Thanks for all the valuable input!

I find the extra leg room is nice when I’m cruising along, but when I’m in rough terrain, I’ll move the seat up a couple of clicks (back to factory setting) to be more “on it” when navigating stuff.
Drive it around for a while to decide for yourself.
