The all-new 2016 Yamaha Grizzly and Kodiak 700 vehicles are rolling off the production line at Yamaha’s U.S. factory in Newnan, Georgia, this month – just in time for summer off-roading and fall harvesting seasons.
“Yamaha’s four-by-four ATVs are the toughest, most durable and off-road capable in the world, and it’s exciting to see the 2016 models coming off the production line in Georgia this summer,” said Steve Nessl, Yamaha’s ATV/SxS group marketing manager.
The all-new Grizzly and Kodiak 700 models are differentiated by their body size, styling and the all-new DOHC 708cc, four-valve, fuel-injected engine that has been given optimized torque, power delivery and engine character for each model’s particular riding style.
The 2016 Grizzly’s all-new chassis was designed for exploring, hunting and recreational riding. Aggressive new styling and a new chassis incorporate redesigned front and rear fenders, an all-new handlebar mounted work light, new 26-inch tires, twin-piston four-wheel disc brakes and all-new suspension. 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 MSRP and EPS models start at $9,699 MSRP.
The all-new Kodiak 700 ATVs are built for work with a comfortable and compact feeling new chassis, smooth power delivery and increased torque. Easily the most powerful in their pricing categories, the new Kodiaks are packed with features for the working man while maintaining Yamaha’s legendary durability and off-road performance.
The all-new Kodiak 700 line of 4×4 utility ATVs includes the Kodiak 700 (MSRP $6,999), Kodiak 700 EPS (MSRP $8,199) and Special Edition (SE) Kodiak 700 EPS (MSRP $8,899).
While the Grizzly and Kodiak 700 have notable differences for different types of riders, both vehicles feature a number of Yamaha’s core technologies including Ultramatic® fully automatic transmission and Yamaha’s best-in-class Electric Power Steering (EPS) with the best combination of light steering and positive feedback from the terrain providing the most comfort and confidence in any condition.
Every Yamaha Grizzly and Kodiak 700 is assembled in the USA at Yamaha’s factory in Newnan, Georgia, for worldwide distribution.
