2010 Yamaha Grizzly 700 FI EPS LE
The 2010 Yamaha Grizzly 700 is the top of the line full-bore ATV from Yamaha. It is our most powerful, most capable and best selling ATV. It features all of our best technologies including On-Command 4-wheel drive, the Ultramatic fully automatic transmission, independent suspension with wide-arc front a-arms and powerful 4-wheel disc brakes. And like any Yamaha, the Grizzly’s reputation for reliability and durability is poven year after year.
Yamaha has always been a leader in developing new technologies that not only improve performance, but also enhance the riding experience.
Take EPS for example. Yamaha was the first to bring Electric Power Steering to market on an ATV. Of course this feature improves performance and handling, but more importantly it makes the Grizzly 700 much easier to ride. Steering effort is reduced along with rider fatigue. It takes a lot less effort to ride, which means you can relax and focus on the experience, instead of concentrating on the conditions and wrestling around each corner or obstacle. It makes the Grizzly feel like a smaller ATV. When you get home, you won’t be as tired or sore with EPS, even though you may find you’ve ridden more miles than ever before. The same goes for our fully automatic Ultramatic transmission, available on all Grizzlies and Kodiaks. Continuously variable Ultramatic transmissions provide ideal gear ratios regardless of conditions or speed, while maintaining constant belt tension to ensure maximum reliability and belt longevity. The Ultramatic design also helps maintain consistent engine braking when off the throttle, which can help control and even reduce speeds when descending hills, or slowing for a corner. Just another example of Yamaha’s commitment to enhancing the ride experience.
Big bore fuel injcted engine.
The Grizzly 700 is powered by a fuel injected 686cc 4-stroke engine derived from the class leading Raptor 700R. It is fuel injected for easy starting and crisp throttle response, but has been re-worked for even more low-end torque to match this bear’s personality.
With EPS we’ve been able to dramatically reduce steering effort, especially in 4WD. At the same time, EPS helps isolate you the rider from external forces acting on the front wheels. This means you can worry less about what the terrain looks like, and focus on enjoying the ride. Did we mention it’s speed and torque sensitive? EPS could be the single most important improvement to your off road experience in decades!
reduces steering effort in all situations, helping to reduce rider fatigue while enhancing rider confidence and ease of operation
speed and torque sensitive
improves stability on virtually all types of terrain at a wide range of speeds
helps isolate the rider from external feedback from obstacles that come in contact with the front wheels.
Incredible power to weight ratio
Increased power is nothing if it comes with a bunch of additional weight. Considering the Grizzly 700 can be as much as 150 lbs lighter than the competitors 800’s, this bear’s power to weight ratio offers some hefty advantages over some of the bigger and bulkier ATVs. Less weight has an effect on everything from handling and acceleration to hill climbing and mud prowess. Imagine if you will adding six or seven cinder blocks to the racks of this Grizzly, and you get the idea of how heavy some of those 800’s are!
4-Wheel disc brakes
Slowing your big-bore ATV down shouldn’t involve standing on the brake pedal while squeezing the lever with all your might. 4-wheel disc brakes combined with full-time engine braking means slowing this Grizzly down requires less effort. And since the front and rear brakes can be operated independently, you have more control over how you brake depending on the situation.
Revolutionary Ultramatic™ fully automatic transmission is the first automatic transmission to feature true engine braking. All four wheels receive engine braking in 4WD mode. Dual-range transmission with reverse. Low range has approximately 1.5 times the pulling power of high range.
Mass centralization and lower center of gravity
A full tank of fuel carries a lot of weight with it. So we located the tank under the seat and the airbox up high where the tank used to be. This lowers the center of gravity which improves handling, stability and hill climbing capability. But it also raises the airbox reducing the chance of water and debris from getting into the engine.
High mounted airbox, V-belt intake and exhaust ducts, reduce the opportunity for water and debris to enter the V-Belt housing.
Reverse mounted rear suspension
The wheel center does not change but allows for a shorter frame which improves approach/departure angles, and allows the use of stronger ball joints (more clearance)
This quick release fairing provides added protection from the elements. Very handy in the rain, or during those cold winter rides, it can easily be removed when the weather gets warm. On the LE Grizzly we have added the new short smoke wind screen. This smoke screen not only looks cool, but still offers plenty of protection from the elements.
