KUBOTA: RTV-XG850 Sidekick

New to Kubota’s RTV line of utility vehicles, the RTV-XG850 Sidekick is built around a quick 48-horsepower engine.

The independent suspension, meanwhile, delivers a smooth ride with plenty of clearance, and the engine-assisted braking makes for greater control and safety during steep descents. Then there’s the selectable full-time 4WD, providing great traction and control on a variety of terrain.
