2024 Kawasaki Ridge Gallery

All the photos of the all-new Kawasaki Ridge.

The long-awaited Kawasaki Ridge has just been unveiled. The new side-by-side from Kawasaki was teased to be a new rec-ute that could compete with the Yamaha RMAX and Polaris Xpedition, and that’s exactly what we got. It’s an affordable do-it-all rig and even has specialized trim levels for utility and sport use. The Ridge is yet another new competitor in a previously barren side-by-side category, and we can’t wait to get our hands on one. Here is every photo we have of the 2024 Kawasaki Ridge!
