At 54.7 inches wide and 72 inches tall, the new four-wheel drive RTV400Ci gets the job done with its fuel-injected six horsepower, air-cooled, single-cylinder gas engine.

CVT Plus: This RTV has a newly-designed Continuously Variable Transmission with inertial clutch (CVT Plus) for excellent response and reliability, while providing dynamic braking to help maintain control during descents with engine-assisted deceleration. CVT Plus also features a full protection cover to minimize mud or dust intrusion to ensure longer belt life.

The new utility vehicle also features a new, air-cooled, single-cylinder gas engine that was developed to ensure peak performance and ultimate durability.

This electronic fuel-injected (EFI) gasoline engine offers a responsive, smooth and reliable ride. The EFI system further improves engine performance by providing quick, easy starts, even in the most severe weather conditions, as well as on-demand power and optimized acceleration.

Weighing a modest 1,257 pounds, the RTV400Ci can handle upwards of 440 pounds or nine cubic feet in its durable, metal cargo box and it can tow up to 1,102 pounds. It is available in both Kubota Orange and Realtree Hardwoods Camouflage.

Operator comfort and safety: Featuring ergonomic, well-placed controls for easy operation, this utility vehicle is designed for ultimate comfort – its contoured bench seat makes riding enjoyable for both the driver and passenger. The low operator platform also offers ample leg room, making it easy to step in and out.

In addition to comfort, the RTV’s Standard Rollover Protection System (ROPS) meets or exceeds standards required by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE). PD
