Yamaha reveals State-of-the-art Grizzly
More big bore power, more tough off road ability and more compact than ever, the fuel injected Grizzly 700 EPS features an industry-exclusive electric power steering system that makes it not just the toughest Grizzly ever, but also the smoothest riding.
Powering the Grizzly 700 EPS is Yamaha’s proven revolutionary fuel injected 686cc, four-stroke forward-inclined single cylinder and liquid-cooled engine. This features a ceramic composite coated, all-aluminium cylinder, a reverse-facing air intake, electronic fuel injection, straight intake tracts and four valves per cylinder for grunt on tap. It also features a high-efficiency radiator mounted high in the chassis to protect against mud and debris.
The Grizzly’s power steering system is speed sensitive, so that the rider benefits from more assistance when needed at low speed and less when on the move. A low mounted 20 litre fuel cell centralises mass and ensures that handling characteristics are further optimised.
To assist with braking, the engine features Yamaha’s Engine Brake Control, which helps to slow the ATV when descending steep downhills. The Grizzly 700 4x4 EPS transfers power from its engine to the wheels through Yamaha’s Ultramatic V-Belt transmission featuring high and low range, reverse, plus parking brake.
By pressing a button on the handlebar, the rider can also select two or four wheel drive operation. In four wheel drive mode, the Grizzly 700 can use the differential lock to deliver the torque equally to all wheels for maximum traction. The straight layout design of the drive shafts reduces vibration and minimises torque fluctuations in the drive line.
The rear braking system and gear case have been redesigned in conjunction with the independent rear suspension. Smaller and more compact, the gear case is extremely rugged and efficient. The dual front and rear hydraulic discs provide maximum stopping power for the Grizzly.
A sturdy double-cradle frame is crafted from tubular steel while double wishbone suspension features front and rear. The independent suspension system features five-way adjustable pre-load and offers generous wheel travel. The setup offers smooth action, high stability and excellent rider comfort.
The combination of the chassis and suspension provides the Grizzly 700 EPS with a massive amount of ground clearance. Plus the riding position sits 25mm higher than that of the Grizzly 660 4x4, enhancing the rider’s ability to scan the horizon. The vertically positioned automotive-style instrument panel suits the riding position with features to ensure that the rider has all the key information.
Yamaha’s Grizzly is a legend in utility ATV circles. The 700cc version with fuel injection and Electronic Power Steering has further refined the Grizzly legend to ensure that future generations of workers can enjoy Grizzly toughness and reliability.
