The difference is, of course, this one is had the tracks accessories. Now in that base model form, it's the perfect sort of platform to accessorize it up because you're only paying for what you need and nothing more. And when we talk about a base model, you wouldn't expect it to have fox piggyback shocks that we're gonna talk about here.
So if you put these on for the winter, obviously the idea is these can float on snow, it will limit your top speed a little bit, you have to slow it down a little bit, but still fully capable, I think 40 kilometers an hour or so, which is a pretty good speed for when you're getting out into snow like this. And you don't have to have the snow packed down. You can head out onto the unpacked snow and really continue moving. But if you put them on in the winter and let's say spring hits, you don't have to immediately take them off. These are four season tracks and we're gonna talk about what that means as you go through. But the biggest thing is as that snow melts, everything gets swampy and muddy and whether you're going through ponds or streams or other stuff like that, it's gonna give you the traction you need and they're fully capable of staying on right through four seasons, but for sure into that spring weather.
So you can go through the snow, keep 'em on those swampy areas and if you've got a property or trail system or something that really requires you to have a lot of traction that you wouldn't get from the base model of this with the traditional wheels, these are a pretty cool option and they also look pretty cool. So it's pretty simple install just bolts right on. Uh, can come on and off quite easily, uh, to the uh, system here. It's a very simple process. So uh, we'll have a link to those, uh, or at least to the name of what those are in the description. So I make sure I get the exact model numbers right for this. But let's move on to the vehicle now. So when I talk about the Kawasaki Teryx4 basically this is a very unique four passenger unit. There are two passenger units and they actually share a wheel base between the two passenger and four passenger.
On the four passenger door, you do have a little extra length, which is basically sitting right here. So keep in mind with wheels right here, the wheels would end here. Little bit extra overhang here and that's it, which means this is fully trail capable, it has a nice tight turning circle and like I said, two passenger, four passenger, you're basically dealing with the same footprint from a wheel based perspective and from a width and everything else. Let's talk about those pock fox piggyback shocks in a second. But before we go too far, I just wanna show you how comfortable this is in a both driver and passenger environment. Now this one has a windshield on it that's an accessory from a driver's perspective. You have these really tall seats. So many of these vehicles have a bench seat and Kawasaki's bench seats are comfortable, but you can't argue with the bucket seat.
It's just a more comfortable seat. You can move them around. You have the tilt steering wheel. I can get comfortable right here, but sitting where I'm comfortable, you can still sit there. And again, the, the height is a little different with the tracks on, but you can still sit there and jump in here where as a six footer, even with a helmet on, even with the roof on here, I have tons and tons of space. So you can fit a full six footer plus behind a six footer plus in this vehicle. And because it's sort of a stadium style seating, I'm looking over the driver and I have a fantastic view even though I'm sitting behind the driver. So a real big advantage of the Kawasaki Teryx4 is not a huge wheel base because it was started off as a four passenger vehicle and then they created a two passenger out of it instead of the other way around.
But there's not a whole lot of wheel base, but there is a ton of space for riders. So we'll show you a little more of the inside a second, but that's the big advantage to this TerraX four is you have the flexibility and maneuverability of a two passenger while being able to take four passengers. So when we talk about maneuverability, that's great, but let's talk about capability. And we keep mentioning, or at least I keep mentioning these fox shocks in here. Again, even on the base model, you've got these fox shocks and this makes a difference because so many of these side by sides are work focus machines first and play second. And this is play first, but it's kind of like an in-between or the Kawasaki lineup.
You've got that Kawasaki KRX above it, which is a really, you know, massive suspension travel. But then you've got this, which is a nice mix for trail riding and that's really where this uh, shines.
So these fox piggyback shocks, the reason you want piggyback shocks is because as the sharks compress and go in and out and do their thing, they create some heat and this is gonna allow that heat to sit over here to dissipate some of that heat, which means as you're going on those really rough roads, really rough trails, it's gonna give you consistent performance in the suspension. So this really matters and none of this suspension has to be modified to fit on these tracks. So this is what you're getting, whether you have wheels or tracks. The tracks actually make it a little easier to see, uh, out here, but a really nice system of beefy a arms and the fox piggyback shock. The other big feature here on the Teryx4 is this bed. Now this one has an accessory, which I quite like. It has a little extra cargo box in here which you can flip up and take a look inside.
So before we take a look at the front seat and the technology and the features in there, I wanted to show you the backseat one more time. You've got wide opening doors, not quite 90 degrees, but pretty close to it and they, although they are plastic, they don't feel really plasticy and chinsy over here is a bar that makes it easier to climb in. You can sort of climb in here again, it's a little taller with the tracks than it would be with the wheels shut that door. Your handle is only on the outside. So the inside is nice and clean. Nothing to grab, nothing to latch onto your clothes or anything else. And you can see again, I've got tons of space. The big feature here is this bar that runs the entire way across. You can kind of see it come over here and come across, which means no matter where you're sitting, no matter where you're turning, you've got an ability to hold onto something here to kind of keep you in place depending on, you know, both G forces, the way the vehicle's turning and again, space is very good.
There is a 12 volt port back here, some cup holders, those kind of things. And you have the plastic floor with drainage holes in there. So if dirt, water, whatever comes in, it will drain out and keep you relatively away from all of that stuff compared to something like an atv. You also have this little shoulder piece right here, which may be hard to see on camera, but again, if you really kind of get pushed to the side, the seats do a pretty good job of holding you in. You are seat belted in here as well, but you have this little extra piece both in the driver. The driver has a pad on there, but also here for the passenger, which is just a little extra thing for both a grab handle, getting in and out, but also to keep your shoulder there. So rear seat is excellent back here.
And a lot of our vehicles have a mix between halogen and L E d. If you wanted to add accessories to this vehicle or if you moved up trim lines, you can get an L e D in here. This one's just got a blank and that's why you have just the outer lights and not inner lights. It does have a high beam setting as well, so there's low and high beam, but if you were to get an L E D light in here, you can get high and low beam there as well, which gives you that more whiter, closer to daylight color. So again, just options with the accessories and again on this base model you kind of have some room to maybe get those, these halogen lights are worth keeping around if you're planning on using this in snow, like for instance this one with the tracks because the halogen lights actually have a little bit of heat to them where the L e D lights really don't.
So when you have that snow splashing up here on a halogen light, it will melt away and you'll continue to have that good visibility. Whereas an L E D light may not have as much heat and that's why you can always sometimes get both For most of the time here, people really like that white bright l e d light and of course you could add light bars and all kinds of things to this, but having these halogen lights around might be a good idea if you're planning to use this in the winter for that specific reason to help you melt that snow. Jumping in the driver's environment of this TerraX four is pretty simple. Just uh, hit the, hit the latch right there. Door opens again just about to 90 degrees and you can see it's perched up pretty high. So again, if you're going through water or anything else, you're nice and square and that's how they get the leg room in the back.
If you had your legs sort of spread out a lot further, like on this angle, you'd have to have more leg room, but because your legs are kind of square in there and it drives uh, a lot like a truck or even like a Jeep or something like that, you get a little more square, you get a little bit of extra height in there and it gives you some great visibility. Now there is a tilt wheel here because I have a hand on a camera holder right now or a camera mount. I won't be able to show you how that works, but it is a nice strong hydraulic that lifts way up and way down so you can get comfortable and it's a nice compact steering wheel. It feels really good in the hands. Again, this one does have a windshield on it that's not standard on uh, this particular model, but that's what we have here today.
Speedometer here, which in Canada, so it's set to kilometers per hour. You've got a full tag of fuel, you've got a clock, you've got trip A, you've got trip B and you've got an hour meter and that's all you need. So simple, simple stuff down there. Down here we've got Freddy the Frog, he's uh, Jim Gilbert's Power Sports, uh, mascot. He's pretty cool. He speaks and as well tells you his whole life story if you squeeze him.
So if you come down this visit the story, you can see that and you've got a little space here to put your phone in most phones now or waterproof or at least my iPhone is so, uh, or at least water resistance so you can keep it out if you wanted to. Uh, you've also got little bits of storage areas down here, little bit of storage area down there.You do have a glove box in there as well. So lots of little interior storage areas here. And then you have your shifter down here, low range, high range neutral and reverse this, although it looks like a parking brake is just a passenger hand hold. So they have something to sort of grab onto you to stay secure as you're going through rough terrain. And your hand brake is actually back here again, just like all the old fashioned cars used to have the hand brakes. Now of course everybody's moved to electronic hand brakes on a lot of the cars, but that's your quick review of the interior basic stuff. Again, I should throw you the floor here. Uh, you do have those holes in the floor so as water comes in you've got good dead pedals at the passenger side there. So you have a dead pedal left and right to keep them really secure.
But this is built for the trails. It's a fun machine built for the fun. What I like about this base model is you start off with a good fox suspension and then you can deck do it up as you want. If you wanna add larger wheels, you can do that. If you wanna add tracks, you can do that. If you wanna start accessorizing your Teryx4 this is a great model. Start with there's a whole bunch of them here in stock. They haven't even been assembled yet. So you can come get them here at Jim Gilbert's PowerSports Fredericton and decorate them up the way you want in order to spend the money on the pieces that you want. That's sometimes the tough thing when you're buying various, uh, power sports things. Everybody makes you go to a certain trim line to get certain things.
And the thing with this in this, uh, sort of the trim line that we're looking at today is you can choose just the accessories you want without having to pay for things that you don't want. And I think that has value. So if you're looking for something that's fun, something that can go on the trails and something that can take your family out or you can just go out with one or two people, this is a great size point for that. Yes, you could set it up with tracks and they're pretty cool. Uh, but you know, in a vehicle like this that's really up to you and you need to have the environment to do that. Uh, these are pretty cool because like I said, they're not just winter tracks. So if I haven't answered your questions, make sure you let me know on the comments below because like I said here at Jim Gilbert's Power Sports Canada's Huggable Power Sports dealer, this is an absolutely amazing place to come buy stuff and, uh, to come talk to the staff here. They know their stuff, they're super, super friendly and they'll just take care of you. If you have questions, you can come see them in person. And again, if you have questions for me, let me know in the comments section because they allow me to come back to these vehicles and to make more and more videos to make sure I answer your questions. Thanks everybody for watching.
