  • Bayou Review

    Jun 29, 2000 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Easy manueverability, small price.
    Cons: It is light in the front end.

    Summary: I think this is a good deal for this a.t.v. It has a good amount of power for it's size. It is low priced so it won't be really hard on your wallet. It is best for a smaller person because it is not a really large a.t.v. It has great handling. The ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Proven design
    Cons: A bit under powered

    Summary: I purchased two 2000 Kawasaki Bayou 220s for the purpose of renting them. In the end they were used for three tour groups, but were never rented outright. The Bayou 220 remains as being one of the best beginner quads on the market, unless the rider ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Manuverabilitly, Peppy Engine, Reliable
    Cons: Headlights, Racks

    Summary: It's a small, well rounded ATV machine. It's best for those who are smaller in stature or for those who just want another machine for the wife/kids/guests to ride along with you in. It has a gutsy engine that will get you where you want to go fast - 50 ... read more

    Pros: compact, fuel gage comes in handy, cheap to buy
    Cons: bad value compared to the competition, feels old, poor handling

    Summary: My best friend owns a 2000 Kawasaki Bayou 220 ATV. It will go almost anywhere and can tow a trailor full of teens, yet it does so with little power and little fun. The bayou is not only heavier than the honda recon, but it has less power and ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: reliable
    Cons: reverse switch

    Summary: For the money, this 220 Bayou is hard to beat. My experience with this Kawasaki shows superiority in this class. I have run against comparable Honda, Yamaha, and Suzuki, and the Kawasaki clearly has more power, even with a 210 pound passenger. ... read more

    Pros: Affordable, VERY well-made, good off-road as well as on-road
    Cons: Not too fast... but it's not made for speed, Brakes (the one I used)

    Summary: Well first off, I have to say that it is listed at a very good price ($2199 US). It is pretty good off-road and the only time I got stuck was when the back wheels were stuck in 2 feet of mud. I easily got it out however. The Bayou 220 is VERY ... read more

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: smooth ride (great suspension), easy turning
    Cons: battery dies quickly sometimes there will be oil leakage

    Summary: I would have to say that the Kawasaki Bayou 220 is a great machine. It's handling is great as well as the suspension. I will tell you that the suspension on this machine makes you not even feel the bumps you go over. Also, this machine has easy ... read more

    Cons: Breaks, suspension, hard to start.
