The 2012 Grizzly 450, like all of Yamaha’s 4x4 ATV and SxS vehicles, is assembled at Yamaha’s manufacturing facility in Newnan, Georgia. Yamaha’s EPS system reduces handlebar feedback and rider fatigue especially over long days and tough chores. The new Grizzly 450 also has Yamaha’s exclusive Ultramatic® automatic transmission — the ATV industry’s most durable CVT system — and push-button On-Command 2WD, 4WD and 4WD diff lock, which provides the only true rider-controlled all four-wheel-drive option. Combined with a one-piece frame and a rear sealed wet brake system, these features make this Grizzly the toughest, lightest and most off-road capable ATV in its class.
The Grizzly 450 EPS also comes standard with independent suspension, 11 inches of ground clearance, a water-resistant DC outlet, and a multi-function LCD display illuminating a speedometer, odometer/trip meter, hour meter and clock, as well as gear selection. The Grizzly’s plush seat, full-sized floorboards and oversized fenders add comfort to the ride.
The Grizzly’s steel racks feature a tough wrinkle-coat finish with more than 250 pounds total carrying capacity (88 pounds in front; 176 pounds in rear), and the vehicle has a towing capacity of 1,322 pounds.
The Grizzly 450 EPS is available in Hunter Green, Steel Blue and Realtree AP Camo. Yamaha also offers countless accessories like luggage boxes, gun boots, winches, and more. Additional information is available at www.YamahaOutdoors.com or by calling 1-800-962-7926.
