Yamaha’s 2012 Grizzly 700 & Grizzly 550 ATVs Now Assembled in U.S.A.

The Yamaha Fuel Injection system (YFI) improves throttle response throughout the powerband, helping the rider take advantage of the Grizzly’s low- to mid-range power. YFI offers unmatched performance at high elevation and in frigid weather as the system is able to detect and compensate for changes in altitude and temperature. The more precise fuel delivery offered by the YFI means clean power delivery, better throttle response and improved fuel economy under a multitude of riding situations. In addition, YFI means no choke and easier cold weather starting.

An open gate shifter found on the left side of the handlebars allows the rider to easily switch between High, Low, Neutral, Reverse and Park. This is also easy to see on the multifunction LCD display, which offers dual trip meter, speedometer, hour meter, odometer and clock, in addition to the gear selection, fuel level indicator, On-Command™ indicator and EPS and fuel injection indicator lights.

Comfort and convenience were also incorporated throughout the Grizzly 700 and 550. The air box is located on the top of the engine providing easier service access for the rider, and the fuel tank is placed under the seat for maximum centralization of mass. Keeping the ride comfortable while also allowing for maximum terrainability is fully independent and adjustable front and rear suspension with 7.1 inches of travel up front and a class-leading 9.5 inches in the rear. The Grizzly’s wide-arc A-arms provide 11.8 inches of more usable ground clearance. What’s more, the Grizzly 700 and 550 offer unmatched braking feel and power with four-wheel hydraulic disc brakes engaged by separate front and rear controls with hydraulic master cylinders mounted on the handle bars. The rear brake also has a right foot pedal control.

The Grizzly also has a thick, plush seat and full floorboards for comfort and protection from the elements. The design of the floorboards also allows for better drainage of mud and water. Two water resistant storage boxes -- one under the seat and another in the right front fender -- offer plenty of storage. This is in addition to the 99 pounds and 187 pounds of carrying capacity on the front and rear racks, respectively, and the 1,322 pounds of towing. The ATV’s SecureMount rack system offers superior fit and finish with Genuine Yamaha Accessories that are designed to fit with factory quality.
