2020 Yamaha ATV Model Line Introduced

Work, leisure, sport. And more.

More than any other manufacturer, Yamaha is committed to offering every customer the widest choice of quality ATVs that are designed to excel in every situation. From the rugged and hard-working Kodiak and Grizzly models through to the high performance YFZ Sport ATVs and the YFM youth model, Yamaha enables everyone to find the right vehicle to suit their lifestyle.

For 2020 the Yamaha Kodiak 450 utility models benefit from a number of significant upgrades that enhance their functionality, while a number of other utility, leisure and sport ATVs are offered in a range of new colours and graphics.

2020 Kodiak 450: Rugged, versatile and practical

Throughout the ATV world the Kodiak is recognized as the leading name in the utility class, and for 2020 the rugged, versatile and practical Kodiak 450 comes with a higher standard specification that makes it an even more effective workhorse.

With the ability to pull more than 1134kg / 2500 pounds, the new factory-fitted WARN VRx25 winch is 25% more powerful, enabling this popular utility ATV to take on the toughest jobs in any environment. This higher specification winch assembly also features a load-holding mechanical brake to give better control when dragging heavy loads – and with 15m of steel rope, the new winch is equipped to handle a range of duties in the forest, field or farm.

A key feature of the Kodiak 450 is its compact body design with a roomy riding space that ensures all day comfort, making this an ideal mid-sized ATV for work or leisure. Its high torque 421cc 4-stroke EFI engine drives through the Ultramatic automatic transmission for a smooth and effortless ride – and Yamaha’s industry-leading On Command drive system enables the user to switch seamlessly between 2WD and 4WD when required, with the push of a button.

With a 120kg rack carrying capacity and 600kg towing capacity – together with its increased winch capacity of over 1134kg – the Kodiak 450 is a true all-rounder that can tackle almost any job – and yet at the same time this tough and reliable ATV is the ideal fun and leisure vehicle when the work is done.

For 2020 the Kodiak 450 will be available in a new Olive Green finish that joins the existing Ridge Red, Yamaha Blue and Camo options.
