About Yamaha Grizzly 550

Yamaha Grizzly 550 EPS / 500 EPS SE

Good news for professionals looking for serious power in a reliable package: the Grizzly 550 EPS is just that, and thanks to Electronic Power Steering, a joy to manoeuver - even over the course of a long day.

A muscular 558cc lies at the heart of this ATV, delivering the kind of high-traction torque needed to get the biggest loads moving. And with its great fuel economy and high-capacity 20-litre fuel tank, you can work all day without the need for a refill.

In support of those with busy schedules, the Grizzly 550 EPS has been designed for maximum reliability with only minimal maintenance requirements.

Yamaha Utility ATVs are built with one goal in mind: easing the workloads of those in tough outdoor environments.

This philosophy is engineered in every detail. Like torque-heavy engines that get you moving when terrain is tricky, or loads are heavy; effort-reducing technologies like automatic transmission and Electric Power Steering; and ergonomic designs which mean you’ll still feel comfortable after a long day in the saddle. Plus, they run economically and require low maintenance.

Yamaha Utility ATVs are tireless workhorses - but that’s not all they are. When time permits, these vehicles pack the punch to give riders a big dose of fun, too.

Power and torque

Yamaha Grizzly 550 EPS / 500 EPS SE

Peak torque is generated at lower engine speeds. The availability of high torque at low rpm - for increased traction - is a feature of all Yamaha’s 4-stroke ATV engines. Ultramatic® transmission automatically applies engine braking to the driven wheels, giving you confidence on steep, downhill working areas.

Yamaha Electronic Fuel Injection technology

At the heart of the Yamaha EFI system, an electronic control unit ensures a precisely metered mixture of fuel and air enters the engine’s combustion chamber at all times, and under any conditions. The result is an optimal combination of smooth power and economy.

Electronic Power Steering (EPS)

A speed-sensitive EPS system - a Yamaha first when it was originally introduced - greatly reduces the physical effort required when steering. Restraining steering effort from bumps and stones on the trail, the extra comfort it provides is particularly welcome on longer working days.

On-Command® drive system

Yamaha’s push-button On-Command® 2WD/4WD system (with locked-differential 4WD) lets you easily switch between drive modes, giving near-instantaneous transition from crawling to climbing.

Long-travel adjustable suspension

Long-travel suspension ensures that the tyres are in consistent contact with the ground even on tricky terrain. The Grizzly 550 EPS double A-Arm front suspension and Independent Rear Suspension means it can adapt to all surfaces and offers massive ground clearance. Pre-load adjustability optimizes handling for all riders and loads.

LCD display
