The Kawasaki Teryx UTV was selected for use by the United States Special Operations Command (SOCOM). The order of more than 1,600 vehicles was included in the contract of $28.3 million, according to a press release from Kawasaki.

The United States Special Operations Command was looking for a utility vehicle to satisfy its needs. Last June, Shannon Tracy, owner of dealership UV Country Kawasaki in Houston, replied to a request with SOCOM’s bid request, with a proposal for UV Country to provide a large quantity of Kawasaki Teryx over a five-year period.

The 2009 Kawasaki Teryx 750 FI was chosen, and UV Country is scheduled to deliver 1,625 units on a five-year indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contract.

The dealership has also filled smaller GSA and Texas state contracts, but Tracy says this is by far the largest contract they’ve done.

“It provides a great boost to our business, lends extra credibility to the Teryx and assists all Kawasaki dealers by capitalizing on its outstanding performance,” she said in the release. “If it’s good enough for the SOCOM environment, then it must be capable of handling whatever American hunters and outdoor enthusiasts can throw at it. This is a real win-win situation for everyone.”

WOW...that is amazing! I guess that should keep them in business for a while, I am surprised that an American Company (Harley) would let that happen.

That shows you that the dealer was thinking outside the box. He was aware of bid laws and what contracts were going out for bid. Very smart move on his part. Its funny because I thought for sure this would go through Kawasaki, not a dealer.

This will still qualify as a small business contract under GSA specs...that is why it was pushed through a dealer instead of a huge telling what they are charging SOCOM per unit's probably unreal...

I'm sure there is a vast majority of the Teryx is fabricated and assembled here in the US...the government doesn't use US companies near as much as they used to...because so much of the international stuff is still fabed / assembled here...Nissan, Suzuki, Yamaha, BMW, Mercedes, Airbus...they all have huge plants here in the Southeastern US...employing hundreds of thousands of people...
