KAWASAKI WELCOMES PRO WRESTLER STEVE AUSTIN TO ITS POWERSPORTS FAMILY
Kawasaki Motors Corp., U.S.A. is announcing today that Steve Austin has joined the Kawasaki STRONG family as brand ambassador. Austin, a Pro Wrestling Hall of Famer, action movie star as well as TV and radio personality will be appearing in upcoming Kawasaki MULE™ PRO-series advertising and marketing campaigns. He will also be featured in Kawasaki’s online properties and make special appearances at upcoming events.
“Steven Austin is the perfect fit for the MULE PRO-series and the Kawasaki STRONG brand,” said Kawasaki Vice President of Marketing Chris Brull. “He can really put the family of machines to the test, especially on his ranch property in Texas, where the versatility, durability and strength of these rugged four-wheelers will shine through.”
Austin joins the Team Green™ family of ambassadors, which already includes the likes of Supercross legend Jeremy McGrath, 2013 Professional Bullriding Champion JB Mauney, motorcycle stunt rider Jason Britton, and 11-time World Drag Race Champion Rickey Gadson, among others, to further promote the Kawasaki powersports product line.

The highly capable MULE mixes Side x Side versatility with class-leading torque, making it the fastest and most powerful MULE ever. It also has new configurable Trans Cab seating for three or six passengers and a standard Kawasaki STRONG three-year warranty, along with more comfort and convenience features than ever before.
The Kawasaki MULE PRO-FXT is a leader in torque with a new 812cc, three-cylinder engine that produces a stump-pulling 48 ft-lb(2) and is mated to a specially tuned Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT). In addition, the MULE PRO-FXT has a short overall length and wheelbase, making it more maneuverable than the competition. This new chassis delivers a tight turning radius, large bed capacity and outstanding towing ability. With its roomy interior and Roll Over Protective Structure (ROPS), the MULE PRO-FXT will keep passengers secure and comfortable on the farm, worksite or trail.
