2009 Yamaha Wolverine 450

The Wolverine 450 is by far the sportiest 4×4 we’ve ever produced. With the bulletproof liquid cooled 450cc engine right out of the Kodiak, on command 4 wheel drive, sport radial tires and agressive looks, this Wolverine is designed for the true sport exploring enthusiast.

Looking for a little more sport in your mid-size 4×4 ATV, without sacrificing terrain-ability?

One that has on-command 4wd for those moments when you need serious traction, but handles more like a sport bike in 2wd. Well look no further. The Wolverine 450 sets the standard for sport exploring. This versatile, go anywhere ATV has 450 class power with revised sport suspension settings and a rear swing arm that allows flatter handling in virtually all conditions. With aggressive looks derived from our awesome Raptor lineup, you’ll stand out from the crowd no matter where your ride ends up.
