2014 Yamaha Grizzly 700 FI Auto. 4x4 EPS Key Features:

Yamaha Grizzly 700 FI Auto. 4x4 EPS

• The Grizzly 700, with its powerful 686cc, liquid-cooled, SOHC power plant, produces more power for the 2014 model year with enhanced engine settings to improve low end, mid-range and top end engine performance. The piston shape has been modified and compression ratio raised from 9.1:1 to 10.0:1, for an increased power feeling throughout the rev range.

• The front and rear A-arms are longer while suspension stroke on both the front and rear shocks has also increased. These adjustments greatly enhance low speed rider comfort without sacrificing any of the legendary Grizzly handling.

• Three-position On-Command® 4WD sytem lets you switch between 2WD, limited-slip 4WD and a fully locked differential 4WD - all with the simple push of a button. Override button allows engine to make maximum rpm in full Diff. Lock mode.

• Ultramatic® transmission with dual-range (Hi/Lo) drive and reverse is the most advanced drive system available. An automatic centrifugal clutch maintains constant belt tension for reduced belt wear and uses a sprag clutch for all-wheel downhill engine braking in 4WD mode and reverse.

• Yamaha Electric Power Steering provides progressive assist at slow speeds and over rough terrain while maintaining optimized rider feedback, superior comfort and terrainability.

• Advanced digital instrument panel boasts a multifunction LCD display with speedometer, odometer, dual tripmeter, hour meter, 4WD status, transmission position, clock and fuel gauge.

• Stainless steel exhaust system features aluminum heat shields and a screen-type spark arrestor for great power with minimum noise output.

• High-capacity radiator with fan-assist delivers maximum cooling efficiency and is positioned high in the frame for optimal protection.

• Automatic cam chain tensioner reduces engine maintenance and helps extend engine life.

• Five-position shift lever with H, L, N, R and P gates provides positive Ultramatic transmission operation.

• Override button allows engine to make maximum rpm in full Diff. Lock mode.
