2018 - 2021 Yamaha Kodiak 700

Proven off‑road capability and comfort during all‑day rides

he Kodiak® 700’s hard-working midrange power and low rpm cruising comes from Yamaha’s smooth and quiet 700-class, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine.

The Kodiak 700 is built Real World Tough with more than 1,300 pounds of towing capacity, and a combined 308-pound rack capacity for a work-ready design and capability.

Yamaha’s peerless Ultramatic® transmission runs through a five-position shift lever with High, Low, Neutral, Reverse and Park gates for positive and precise transmission operation.

A robust mechanical 4WD system is selected using a handlebar-mounted lever.

Packing practical, fun and usable power, the Kodiak 700’s engine balances big bore power with a strong midrange.

The Kodiak 700 features a 686 cc motor with optimized torque, power delivery and character that is fun and exciting on trails while still being smooth and quiet when exploring or working on the job site.

Slow-speed technical riding can place a lot of thermal demands on a liquid-cooled motor, so the Kodiak 700 features a high-capacity radiator

that delivers plenty of air flow for maximum cooling efficiency and is positioned high in the frame for optimal protection.

Maximizing available traction, the Kodiak 700 features 25-inch Maxxis® tires that provide precise steering feel and feedback.

Strong and reliable braking comes standard on every Kodiak 700 thanks to hydraulic front disc brakes and sealed wet rear brake system.

All with the simple push of a button, the three-position On-Command® 4WD system lets you switch between 2WD, limited-slip 4WD and a fully locked differential 4WD.

An override button allows engine to reach maximum rpm in full diff lock mode, and a straight driveshaft layout eliminates U-joints for reduced friction, noise, vibration and maintenance.

Independent double wishbone suspension, with 7.1” of front wheel travel and 9.1” at the rear, provides excellent rider comfort even on the toughest trails.

With plenty of room for the rider to move during riding, the low seat improves rider comfort and simplifies mounting and dismounting.

Despite the full-size performance, the Kodiak 700 features a more compact body design similar to a mid-sized ATV to ease overall feel and handling.

An optimized 4.76-gallon fuel tank is located under the seat for excellent mass centralization and handling.

Rugged, large-diameter steel cargo racks with durable wrinkle paint finish can pack a total of 308 pounds combined (110 lbs. front, 198 lbs. rear).

An on-board storage compartment keeps things dry, too.

Center-mounted, heavy-duty 2-inch receiver comes standard on Kodiak 700 EPS and can tow more than 1,300 pounds.

The Covert Green Kodiak 700 EPS SE includes a 2,500-pound capacity winch mounted straight from the factory floor.

With plenty of ground clearance, the Kodiak 700 tackles rough terrain with ease.

Wide-arc A-arms and full-body skid plates ensure the Kodiak 700 is able to handle anything the farm or trail can throw at it.

MSRP on the base model Yamaha Kodiak 700 starts at $7.5k and runs up to $11.1k on the 700 EPS SE model.
