Confirmed...2012 Kawasaki Brute Force will have power steering!

Finally, the Brute is getting the attention it deserves. If it can keep the price point low it will have a winner on its hands. It clearly outpowers offerings from Yamaha, Honda and Suzuki and will hold its own againts Polaris and Can-am.

This is great news for the kawi lovers out there that they have added this. I am a true power steering believer going from a Grizz 700 with PS to a Renegade without it. I am itching to get back to a machine with PS myself. I hope the BRP puts the 1000cc engine from the new SXS in the Renegade for 2012. If so, I will have to upgrade.

I have known that this was likely going to happen although it has just recently been confirmed.

Hopefully here in a few months I'll get a chance to ride one and let you know how it is. I love the Brute, although I always though it could use some improvements in the steering department.

My 09 Brute is hands down the best wheeler I have owned or driven. I haven't missed the power steering my old Grizz had either. Havent driven a Gade though lol

I love the Brutes, they are probably one of the most robust quads available today. I just didn't care for the handling, I think this is a partial reason you do not see too many racing GNCC.

The Gade is a perfect machine in my opinion if you want the ultimate sport utility. Razor sharp looks a in my opinion are what set it apart from everything else. The power in my opinion is nearly equivalent when taking into consideration the 50cc difference.

The Brute does have snap factor especially with the limiters off
