It is bad-a$$!
For anyone who doubts how tough and durable the KRX is, take a look at this video. Novice rock crawlers just absolutely beating the crap out of the KRX, and it takes it. Can't think of any other bone stock machine that would have taken that beating and not come out with at least a broken axle, and probably bent up trailing arms and/or twisted up radius rods. Next time somebody says something about how over weight these machines are, this is why. They are built strong!
I seriously think these guys are trying to break this KRX just so they can hype their Polaris's and Canam's, (and even their lowly Talon) over the Kawasaki. So far the KRX has proven to be tougher than them.

They should have ran all the other brands through that for a real comparison...I'd expect some carnage from one of those other machines too...lol

That’s a tough machine. I think it’s hard to get an idea of just how steep the obstacle really is. At one point he got a little tipsy. I like the longer wheel base for that reason. A little shorter and you might climb over easier, but you roll a lot easier. Sounds like these guys get manufacturers to send them out everything from new machines to tow ropes to advertise and promote their products. Seems like a fun job to have. I’m glad I went krx over the talon. Talon is faster, but the krx is better in every other category that’s important to me, in my opinion. Be nice to see other machines in this catagory go through that same course.

Im sorry that was just sad to watch... Ya people say its easier to be a critic via keyboard but it is what it is. They just kept going straight at it over and over and over.... They could have stacked less rocks and hit the concrete pipe at an angle and crawled right over. Then they just sit there and let the KRX smoke those tires while the Canam just dug holes. Ugh I don't mean to sound so negative but that wasn't a test at all for any UTV. They just scratched the undercarriage up and smoked the non deflated tires.

They could have marked a line and then taken each UTV through the same line in the rocks and comment on ride, turn radius, power, steering, visibility, etc

I watch their videos. They do not like Kawa because Kawa didnt invite em to premeire event October or sumthing. Also didnt immediately send em a new KRX. They are better drivers then that, they intentionally beat that thing lke an idiot.

About the second failed attempt, I'd be yelling at my friend to stop wrecking the dang machine and take a different line already. Or at least hit the throttle harder. ;-)

Just to be clear, I am rough on it. Stock metal skids are great!! Wrong. They dent and push up into floor. The rear fenders are bolted to a 2x2 metal bracket WELDED to frame so when into a tree they bend. Uh oh, not good. Floor drains pop up when skids bend. Now I tree jump, bounce logs and ledges too. I rub through trees. I can verify its tough as nails but not perfect.... I am using Kawa skids as well but I still can put small bends in factory metal skid. I am impressed. My T4 is tougher. My old RZR a piece of crap compared to either Kawa.

I watch them too and totally agree...it's like they have a grudge against it. I've even noticed that on a few of their other videos comparing the KRX.

Deranged Off-road is a YouTube channel that is a bit less biased.

Yep...They were pissing me off too. The damn thing is, they all drive better than that.

I also watch the Deranged Off-Road channel. Those guys are pretty straight up about their machines. Fun to watch them compare with each others machines as well.
They are also good guys. I bought my windshield from them, and they had it to me in 2-1/2 days.

It is a good durability test for their KRX. They don't want to like it, and I honestly think they are trying to get something to break on it. I'm sure they will eventually because they just absolutely treat it like crap. They won't even wash it... To be fair, they run the hell out of all their machines. The difference is, they have also broken all the other machines at some point. So far, the KRX is breaking them. LOL

Yea, I'm beginning to offer their stuff over SXS Blog guys. Speaking of videos, have any of you watched the SXS Blog tug-of-war? I don't want to say the outcome.

Seems like they planned to get the krx hung up. They had that rubber band tow rope in the krx he threw out, and they were itching to advertise its usefulness. They must get paid to advertise products.
