2016 Yamaha ATVKodiak and Grizzly get more power, new looks, and new suspensions

Business owners who need four-wheel-drives to traverse rugged terrain where traditional pickups can’t tread will find Yamaha’s 2016 ATVs and side-by-sides of interest.

Celebrating its 60th  anniversary, Yamaha is using 2016 as the year to make a big push forward in what it offers its buyers of utility/work-oriented machines.

“This year marks one of Yamaha’s most significant new ATV and SxS model launches in history,” said Mike Martinez, Yamaha’s Recreational Vehicle (RV) vice president. “Today everyone at Yamaha is excited to introduce a number of all-new ATV and Side-by-Side models and redefine some existing categories.”

Among the all-new 2016 models are the Grizzly and Kodiak 700 line of 4×4 ATVs that have been a staple in many of the outdoor-oriented trades, and the 2016 Wolverine side-by-sides.

The Grizzly’s new styling and hassis incorporate redesigned front and rear fenders, an all-new handlebar mounted work light, new 26-inch tires, twin-piston four-wheel disc brakes, new suspension, and Yamaha’s proven core drivetrain technologies.

The new Grizzlies come in non-EPS, EPS, Special Edition and Limited Edition variations with multiple color and styling options. Non-EPS models start at $8,899  and EPS models start at $9,699 .

Yamaha’s 2016 Kodiak 700 line of 4×4 utility ATVs received a similar make-over with new styling, smooth power and increased torque that make them the most powerful in their pricing categories.

The Kodiak 700 ($6,999), Kodiak 700 EPS ($8,199) and Special Edition (SE) Kodiak 700 EPS ($8,899) all boasting class-leading performance and value for the hard-working utility ATV customer.
