If you’ve decided that you could do with some four-wheeled help on the job, the Grizzly 125 is your one-stop solution.

Durable and practical, it’s designed to be ridden by anyone with any level of experience - just switch the auto transmission gear lever to forward, thumb the throttle and you’re ready to go. It’s ideal for moving light loads, irrigation, herding livestock, or just getting around any workplace with varied terrain.

It’s designed to perform reliably, comfortably and easily, with only the bare minimum of maintenance. Transporting it is also easy thanks to its practical size. What more would you need in a friend?

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.

Precision engine design

The 4-stroke engines used in Yamaha ATVs are designed to give you high levels of torque at low and midrange rpm. The result is increased traction - on all kinds of terrain. The Grizzly 125 uses a 125cc 4-stroke single-cylinder engine, designed for exceptional reliability.

Electric start

Firing up the Grizzly 125 is effortless thanks to a reliable push-button electric start system. Afterwards, simply select forward or reverse and push the thumb throttle to go. It’s as easy as that.

Effortless transmission

Fully automatic V-belt transmission with forward, neutral and reverse means no gear-shifting making the Grizzly 125 even easier to ride - especially over longer distances.

A-arm suspension

The Grizzly 125 features a sturdy suspension package that keeps you comfortable and in charge when things get bumpy. Independent A-arm front suspension and a rugged rear swing arm with lots of travel soak up bumps for a smooth, plush ride and responsive steering.

High ground clearance

The compact design of Yamaha’s ATV engines allow them to ride high over rough ground, ensuring great stability and a more comfortable riding experience. Strong skid plates help to protect the ATV engine and chassis from damage if an obstacle is encountered.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More
