Features

Durability meets speeds

When the great outdoors calls, jump in your Sidekick and hit the gas. The Sidekick’s powerful 48 HP gasoline engine gives you the speed to get there fast. Up to 64.4 km/h (40 mph) fast. And with impressive acceleration and torque, you’ll take on every big hill and distant destination with absolute confidence.

Strong high-rigidity frame

Power and speed combined with agility and stability. That’s the Sidekick driving experience. Designed for easy handling at any speed, it’s always a comfortable drive thanks to the enhanced speed-sensitive EPS (Electronic Power Steering). Tuned front and rear independent suspension offers a consistently smooth ride with rugged loading performance, while the engine assists braking for greater control and safety during descents.

Aggressive style

Choose from four distinctive colours—Black, Kubota Orange, Green, and RealTree® AP Camo. Every detail from the bold headlights, the rugged cargo panels, the steering wheel, shift knob and instrument panel are functional and fun.

Durable CVT-PLUS transmission

The Sidekick is equipped with Kubota’s worry-free CVT Plus transmission. The centrifugal clutch keeps the thick, double-cogged belts tight for minimal slippage, ensuring fast response and excellent belt durability. Fully shielded to keep out dust and water, the CVT Plus also cools the CVT belts with a large cooling fan for even greater durability.

Standard speed sensitive power steering

The Sidekick comes standard with Speed Sensitive Electric Power Steering providing better handling and comfort for operators throughout a range of speeds.

High towing and payload capacity

Built to handle a wide range of hauling jobs, from gear and supplies to tools and materials. And it can carry a lot, up to 15.2 cubic feet or half a ton (1,000 lbs.) in a rugged steel cargo box with optional electric hydraulic lift for fast and effortless dumping. The Sidekick is even ready to tow your boat, trailer and more by providing a class leading 2,000 lbs. of towing capacity and standard trailer hitch.

Quick attach accessories and Cab components

Build your own custom Sidekick with optional cabins and accessories will make your RTV experience more comfortable, personal, and memorable.
