2012 Yamaha Grizzly 350 Auto 4×4 Highlights:
The power-packed, full-featured Grizzly 350
Automatic 4×4 solid axle carries a lot of advanced
Yamaha ATV technology in an affordable package.

a handlebar-mounted button.

radius, for excellent maneuverability and nimble

plenty of traction and responsive handling.
