When there’s work to be done, put your trust in the robust, versatile Grizzly 300. Its engine delivers impressive levels of torque and traction in the shape of a compact, manoeuvrable ATV, which is equally at home on grasslands or hilly terrain.

Under its no-nonsense styling, the Grizzly 300 has been refined for exceptional performance. Its automatic transmission and gearbox – with simplified High and Low ratio settings – eliminate the need for clutch and gear operation and the suspension package keep the ATV firmly on the ground.

Add the comfy wide seat and handy carriers for working tools, and you’ve got a ride that keeps your focus where it belongs: on the job at hand.

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.

The power of the Grizzly 300 belies its size. Its 4-stroke, single-cylinder, 4-valve engine delivers deep torque in the low to mid-ranges, for pulling off with a full load. At higher speeds, it provides strong, agile power, for a great driving feel. A single axle balancer reduces vibration and smoothens engine performance.

The Grizzly 300 is all about convenience. A centrifugal clutch and Constantly Variable Transmission (CVT) do away with the usual hassle of gear changes. Instead, riders select Low (L) or High (H) ratios while idling, depending on whether they need the grunt for towing heavy loads, or smooth power for relaxed riding. Reverse gear enhances manoeuverability.

Long-travel adjustable suspension

Double wishbone suspension at the front keeps the tyres in contact with the ground for longer – even when the terrain is uneven. Excellent straight-line stability and a natural steering feel help to ward off the effects of rider fatigue. Monocross rear suspension can be adjusted to suit the load you’re carrying and the conditions.

Front and rear disc brakes

Riding with confidence means riding knowing that you have the brake performance you need. The Grizzly 300 is kitted with responsive hydraulic disc brakes at both the front (175 mm) and the rear (220 mm). Remarkable linear response comes courtesy of specially developed pads.

Flat steel carriers fitted to the Grizzly 300’s compact body can accommodate up to 20 kg of equipment at the front, and 45 kg at the rear. This is an ideal way to transport essential tools without having to pull a trailer.

Snowcity ---- "But not all of them are meant for serious work. The Grizzly 300 however, was designed to handle the tough utility-use conditions, that most Yamaha’s encounter. Excellent reliability and serviceability will keep this Grizzly running for years to come. Good power and light handling, and all at an affordable price."

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
