A high-powered ATV has no room for newbie riders and only those that know their way around one should be riding it. It’s not that the Yamaha Grizzly 700 EPS isn’t suited for novices, but if you’re breaking into the world of ATVs, you might settle for something a little more entry-level.
On the other hand, if you’re a veteran of four-wheeled, off-road riding, then the Grizzly 700 EPS will definitely make your heart skip a beat. Powered by a 686cc liquid-cooled, four-stroke engine, the Grizzly 700 EPS boasts of the best power-to-weight ratio of any Yamaha utility ATV on the market. The engine is then mated to a fully automatic Ultramatic transmission that’s considered the most advanced drive system among ATVs.
As far as handling is concerned, the Grizzly 700 EPS was built with WideArc front suspension A-arms that provide outstanding ground clearance. For maximum control and comfort over rough terrain, the ATV comes with a fully independent long-travel four-wheel suspension featuring a double-wishbone suspension set-up on the front and five-way preload-adjustable shocks on the rear.
More than its performance and handling capabilities, the Grizzly 700 EPS also looks the part. It’s a lean, mean, fighting machine that comes with features riders can enjoy. It has a center-mounted, heavy-duty trailer hitch that can tow more than 1300 pounds. Likewise, the ATV also has rugged steel cargo racks with a special, extra-durable wrinkle
paint finish that can pack a total of 286 pounds. There’s also an LCD instrument display that contains fuel injection and electric power steering information, as well as bar-type fuel gauge, speedometer, odometer, trip meter, clock, and Diff. Lock indicator. Dual 35-watt multireflector halogen bulb headlights with high and low beams complete the Grizzly 700 EPS’ set-up.
