2012 Yamaha Grizzly 125 Automatic Review

Far more than bear necessities…

Automatic transmission, racks and full floorboards are among the list of big-Grizzly features found on the entry-level Grizzly.

Rugged good looks paired with a fully automatic transmission and electric start 4 stroke engine makes the 2012 Yamaha Grizzly 125 an off-road force to be reckoned with.

The 2012 Yamaha Grizzly 125 is the most user friendly of all ATV’s. For freatures and styling, it takes its lead from the 2012 Grizzly 700, but offers the convenience of automatic transmission and the fuel efficiency of 2WD.

The family resemblance in the Grizzly clan is more than skin deep.

You’ll find the same superior engineering standards and materials in our Grizzly 125. Nearly bullet-proof, torquey four-stroke engines, chain drive, maximum durability and go-anywhere terrainability are what they’re all about. Grizzly 125, for riders 16 and older, makes the connection with a fully automatic transmission with reverse, front and rear racks and sealed-drum brakes.
