A range of modifications and additions to the Yamaha ATV and UTV ranges have been announced to offer greater choice and versatility to its agricultural customers.
Kodiak 450 and 700 ATVs now offer the option of Electric Power Steering (EPS) and diff-lock for greater stability on uneven ground. Special Edition machines will also be available with alternative paint colours.
Yamaha offers all Kodiak models with a ten-year belt warranty, as well as the Datatool tracking device free of charge.
Also new is a revised Grizzly 700 ATV, featuring an MKII 686cc engine and upgraded 14-inch wheels, as well as On-Command two-wheel and four-wheel drive with diff-lock. The switchable drive system is operated via a switch on the handlebars.
This is coupled with Yamaha’s Ultramatic continuously variable transmission and independent, adjustable suspension to make the machine more comfortable on difficult terrain.
The new Wolverine RMAX 1000 UTV will be launched in the UK both in a Special Edition and Limited Edition specification. Both include a VRX 45 winch, front bumper, interior lighting, dash-mounted USB charging and the D-Mode selector with sport, trail and crawl mode.
The Limited Edition comes with the adjustable FOX 2 iQs suspension system, which for the first time can be adjusted from the cab. There’s also dash-mounted adjustment of the ride quality, with three settings to suit the terrain. For increased safety, a speed management key system has been introduced, enabling owners to limit the top speed to 25kph.
According to the company, this will protect both the operators and machines in conditions where higher speeds are not required. The key can be removed by the owner to return the machine to its factory settings.
Yamaha will also offer free ATV rider competency training from the European All-Terrain Vehicle Safety Institute (EASI) to anyone purchasing a new Yamaha ATV.
