Powerful engine

Yamaha Grizzly 450 EPS

Substantial power lies at the heart of the Grizzly 450 EPS. The liquid-cooled 421cc engine offers the kind of low-rpm torque whenever you need and wherever you need it. In addition, Ultramatic® transmission provides outstanding engine braking on even the steepest working areas.

Lightweight frame

Yamaha Grizzly 450 EPS

The one-piece frame reduces weight as well as being a stronger and more rigid construction. It incorporates an extra-durable rear gear assembly, connected at three (rather than the normal two) separate points for best-ever protection against the strains of regular, heavy-duty use. A short, spring stabilizer bar offers increased support.

Electronic Power Steering (EPS)

On long days or in difficult terrain, EPS helps every rider of any body size. The system uses rider and wheel input to assist steering, provides feedback, prevents handlebar slaps and the high-output AC generator guarantees power supply in all conditions. The EPS is the same version as the Grizzly 700’s but with a revised ECU mapping.

On-Command® drive system

Yamaha Grizzly 450 EPS

Yamaha’s push-button On-Command® 2WD/4WD system (with locked-differential 4WD) lets you easily switch between drive modes, giving near-instantaneous transition to adapt to changing riding and surface conditions.

Independent long-travel adjustable suspension

Long-travel suspension ensures tyres are in consistent contact with the ground even on tricky terrain. The Grizzly 450 EPS’ double A-Arm front suspension and Independent Rear Suspension adapt to all surfaces and offer massive ground clearance. Pre-load adjustability optimizes handling for all riders and loads (Carefull as a reader pointed to us that those shocks might not be adjustable after all, check your vehicle before buying! Thanks Mark for the tip).

Multi-disc wet braking

Yamaha Grizzly 450 EPS

The durable sealed oil-bathed multi-disc brake setup protects the system from clogging by mud or stones thrown up during use. It provides strong and consistent stopping power and is easy to adjust.

Excellent cargo capacity

Yamaha Grizzly 450 EPS

Offering generous storage capacity, the Grizzly 450 EPS can carry a maximum payload of 120 kg - 40 kg at the front, and 80 kg at the rear. A lightweight hitch mount is capable of towing heavy loads up to 600kg

Comfort and practicality

Yamaha Grizzly 450 EPS

The lightweight seat designed for cold-weather riding comfort, plus a range of durable, practical accessories - such as winches, plough, lighting kits and battery chargers - help take the strain out of your busy working day.
