Yamaha continues to expand its ATV line adding the new Grizzly 450 4×4 utility ATV with Electric Power Steering (EPS) and the all-new Raptor 125 sport ATV. These are the latest models to join Yamaha’s dominating 2011 model year fleet of the highest performing, top quality off-road machines.
“The new Grizzly 450 EPS is a mid-level machine with top-of-the-line features that excels in trail riding and utility functions. The Raptor 125 is the first in its class from a major ATV manufacturer with true sport performance,” said Mike Martinez, Yamaha’s general manager of ATV and Side-by-Side operations.
“These two models give customers a couple of great new options within Yamaha’s 2011 line. It’s the superior functionality and performance in both of these ATVs, along with Yamaha’s known durability and reliability, that provide the high value our customers expect.”
The new Grizzly 450 EPS combines Yamaha’s most innovative features for the outdoor and recreational enthusiast: award winning Electric Power Steering, industry exclusive Ultramatic automatic transmission with the centrifugal clutch system, On-Command 2WD, 4WD and 4WD diff-lock, and an all new rear sealed wet brake.
The new 450 includes all of these key features in a mid-level chassis – with an all new one piece frame and independent rear suspension – and strong 421cc, 4-stroke engine able to handle more than 250 pounds rack capacity and 1,322 pounds in towing.
The all-new Raptor 125 introduces Yamaha performance and engineering to the entry-level or step-up sport ATV market. This is the first 125-class sport ATV from a major ATV manufacturer.
The Raptor 125 is a true-sport machine with a 124cc, two valve, single overhead cam engine, five-speed manual transmission, electric start, hydraulic disk brakes and five-way preload adjustable suspension.
All combined, the new 125 has the same great suspension components and handling characteristics of the award-winning Raptor 250. The Raptor 125 also gets new Maxxis sport tires – 19-inches in front and 18-inches in back.
