2025 KAWASAKI MULE PROS AND TERYX 800S

Kawasaki announced its 2025 UTV line-up with new models of Teryx KRX1000s including a lifted mud version, and they also dropped information on its 2025 Mule Pros and Teryx 800s. Dirt Wheels tested the Mule Pro-FXR 1000 LE in our March, 2024, issue, and we tested the Mule Pro-FXT 1000 Platinum Ranch Edition in the June, 2024, issue. These 1000s were new for 2024 and weren’t included in the 2025 drop, so they’re listed side-by-side on Kawasaki’s website with the 2025s. The Kawasaki Multi-Use Light-Equipment (MULE) has been produced since 1988, and the Mule Pro series ups the performance level to continue the evolution of recreation-utility side-by-sides towards recreation capability in addition to worksite performance. We’re betting Kawasaki will announce new trim levels and even more special editions in the 2025 Mule Pro-FX 1000 series, as Kawasaki will have at least two more 2025 product releases. Until then, we’ll revisit 2024 Pro-FX 1000s briefly.

2024 MULE PRO-FX 1000S

Kawasaki took the Teryx KRX1000 engine and detuned it, creating the most powerful Mule yet. The 999cc parallel twin produces 70-Hp and 61.5 lb-ft of torque via a single EFI 38mm throttle body versus the KRX’s two 50mm throttle bodies, and compression has been reduced from 11.5:1 to 10.1:1. This engine is impressive and governed to 65 mph in high, and it does 32 mph in low with the Pro-FXR. Suspension travel was increased to 11 inches of front and 10.1 inches of rear travel on both the Pro-FXR and Pro-FXT to upgrade performance for the stronger engine. The Pro-FXT Platinum Ranch also got self-leveling shocks to handle up to 999 pounds of cargo in the FXT Trans-Cab’s bed. The Pro-FXT comes with 26-inch Duro Frontier tires on 12-inch rims, while the FXR comes with 27-inch Duro Power Grip II tires, both on two-tone aluminum rims. The Mule Pro-FXR is very sporty and trail capable, while the FXT Platinum is incredibly smooth while it tackles the same obstacles as the FXR.

2025 MULE PRO-DXT EPS TRANS-CAB

Like the gasoline-powered Pro-FXs, the diesel-powered Pro-DXT EPS has four-wheel hydraulic disc brakes with two-piston front and one-piston rear calipers and mechanical parking brakes on the rear. The Pro-DXT is powered by a 993cc three-cylinder, liquid-cooled diesel that produces 38.3 lb-ft of torque at 2,400 rpm via a 23.5:1 compression ratio and a Bosch in-line injection pump. That’s mated to a dual-range CVT, and the driveline has selectable 2WD/4WD and Turf mode. Alternator output is 55 Amps, and the DXT seats three to six. Suspension travel is 8.7 inches front and 8.6 rear, and ground clearance is 10.2 inches with 26-inch tires. This workhorse can carry up to 999 pounds in the bed (in three-person configuration) and tow 2,000 pounds. Wheelbase is 93.2 inches and width is 64 inches. It comes in Super Black for an MSRP of $19,799.

2025 MULE PRO-DXT FE EPS

The FE trim level is designed for commercial (Fleet Edition) or Government needs, and it comes in Bright White to facilitate company or agency logos on the bodywork. FEs also get a plastic roof,  universal ignition key, horn, high-durability seat-cover material, and bright orange seat belts to assure operators meet safety requirements. Like the standard DXT EPS, the FE has variable-assist electronic power steering for ease of operation, and turning radius is 16 feet. FEs also get semi-metallic brake pads for more durability and decreased maintenance. MSRP is $19,999.

2025 MULE PRO-MX EPS, LE, & SE

The Mule Pro-MX is a more compact two-seater that is powered by a 695cc SOHC, four-valve single that makes 42.7 kb-ft of torque at 5,000 rpm via DFI with a 44mm throttle body. The dual-range CVT has a centrifugal clutch for belt life and smooth operation, and the driveline has selectable 2WD/4WD and Turf mode. Pro-MXs have speed-sensitive variable-assist EPS and four-wheel Engine Braking System. Dual A-arm suspension supplies 8.6 inches of front and 9.1 inches of rear travel. Dual-piston front and single-piston rear hydraulic calipers provide four-wheel disc brakes, and rears also have mechanical parking brakes. Bed cargo capacity is 699 pounds (600 in CA), and towing is 1,500 pounds. Wheelbase is 78.9 inches, width is 60 inches, ground clearance is 10.6 inches with 25-inch tires, and gas capacity is 9.5 gallons. Pro-MXs sport two halogen and two LED headlights. The EPS comes in Gray or Timberline Green for $14,099 (Camo is $14,799), and the LE has Deep Blue painted bodywork with graphics for $14,699. The SE has a roof, two-tone cast-aluminum wheels, premium gold Special Edition paint and graphics, and a Warn VRX-35 powersports winch for $15,499.

2025 Kawasaki Teryx S LE

2025 TERYX S LE

The first Teryxs used a Brute Force 750 motor and saw action in the Lucas Oil Off-Road Racing Series, along with being very capable rock crawlers (we’ve never seen one break an axle). The Teryx S LE returns with its 783cc V-Twin with Electrofusion cylinders and Kawasaki DFI with two 36mm throttle bodies, making 47.6 lb-ft of torque at 5,500 rpm. S-models get long-travel A-arms that yield 10.7 inches of front and 10 inches of rear travel with Fox Podium 2.0 LSC piggyback shocks and 24-position compression adjusters. Speed-sensitive EPS and 27-inch Maxxis Bighorn 2.0 tires on 14-inch aluminum rims provide sporty handling. For 2025, Teryx S LEs come in Ice Gray/Super Black or Metallic Matte Twilight Blue/Super Black for $15,499. Kawasaki dropped the Teryx for 2025, but it’s available as a 2024 for 14,199.

2025 Kawasaki Teryx4 S

2025 TERYX4, TERYX4 S LE, & TERYX4 S SE

Kawasaki kept the original Teryx4 with 8 inches of front and 8.3 inches of rear travel in the 2025 line-up; it comes in Neon Yellow/Super Black for $16,199. The 2025 Teryx4 S LE is the four-seat version with the same wheelbase (88.2 inches) as the two-seater, and it has the same engine, CVT, diffs, tries, long-travel A-arms, travel, and Fox Podium 2.0 shocks. Brakes are two-piston hydraulic calipers up front and multi-disc, oil-bathed, and sealed with a mechanical parking brake. Steering is rack-and-pinion with speed-sensitive EPS assist. Bucket seats and stadium rear seating provide security, comfort and a great view. The Teryx4 S LE comes in the same colors as the two-seat for $17,499, plus there is a Cypher Camo Gray/Super Black option for $17,699. The Teryx4 S SE upgrades to Candy Lime Green paint and SE graphics, a high-grade Hifonics Bluetooth/AM/FM/USB audio system, and a Warn VRX-35 Powersports winch for $18,999.
