2011 Yamaha Grizzly 450 Auto 4X4 EPS Review
Being a Grizzly, the
2011 Yamaha Grizzly 450 Auto 4x4 EPS shares some of the wonderful
features with its big bros, Grizzly 700 and Grizzly 550 like
electric power steering, 4WD independent suspension; and
liquid-cooled, fuel efficient engine. And with most of its
improvements are actual recommendations from customers and dealers,
the 2011 Yamaha Grizzly 450 Auto 4x4 EPS is arguably the best
mid-sized ATV in the industry.
Yamaha's engineering team definitely did a great gob and went the extra mile with this Grizzly's redesign, while keeping in mind durability and reliability. Its EPS is assembled inside a new one-piece frame that's 6-lbs. lighter than the 2010 model's chassis. With the EPS unit installed, the 2011 Yamaha Grizzly 450 Auto 4x4's total weight decreased by 9.9-lbs. Also, Grizzly's rear wet braking system is now entirely sealed within the rear frame. The overhauled system as well has 20% more torque at the rear wheels and 65% less in the clutch pack, providing lesser heat and friction-only superior experience and resiliency.
This 2011 Yamaha Grizzly 450 Auto 4X4 EPS features an all-new compact size, lighter weight, electric power steering, enhanced braking and ergonomics, and extra amazing functionalities like waterproof underseat compartment-for just $7,499 with EPS. Yamaha's latest bear in the family comes in Hunter Green, Steel Blue and Realtree AP HD camo.
