2013 Yamaha Grizzly 700 FI Auto 4×4 EPS LE Features and Benefits:
Most powerful Grizzly ever with its 686cc liquid-cooled, four-stroke engine and light weight has the best power-to-weight ratio of any Yamaha utility ATV. Yamaha Fuel Injection means instantaneous cold starts and optimal performance in nearly any condition, at nearly any altitude.
Electronic Power Steering
EPS dramatically reduces steering effort, especially in 4WD. It helps isolate the rider from external forces acting on the front wheels, which means you can worry less about the terrain and focus more on enjoying the ride. This speed and torque sensitive EPS system 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
•Variable assist is 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
Big Bore Power
Tipping the scales at 150 lbs less than some of our competitors 800’s, it’s no wonder our biggest Grizzly has the best power-to-weight ratio in its class. Less weight has an effect on everything from handling and acceleration to hill climbing and mud prowess.
4-Wheel Disc Brakes
Slowing down this Grizzly requires less effort thanks to 4-wheel disc brakes combined with full-time engine braking. The front and rear brakes can be operated independently, giving you more control over how you break depending on the situation. After all, slowing down your big-bore ATV shouldn’t be a challenge.
On Command 4WD System
Push-button servo-controlled On-Command system allows you to switch between 2WD, limited-slip 4WD and fully locked differential 4WD – all with the simple push of a dash mounted button. With Diff-lock engaged traction is at all 4-wheels instantaneously putting you in total control. You decide when you need 4 wheel drive, the machine doesn’t decide for you.
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.
You’ll find the gas tank positioned under the seat, which provides a lower centre of gravity for improved handling, stability and hill climbing capability. The air box is positioned up high, reducing the chance of water and debris from getting into the engine.
High mounted air box, 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).
•Roller bearing rocker arms reduce friction and improve engine performance
•Carburized Chrome-Moly connecting rods improve durability
•Air box design featuring centrifugal debris trap to improve air flow
•Flat type foam air filter for easy cleaning
•Straight drive shaft layout reduces vibration and improves durability
•Gull-wing front a-arms for improved ground clearance
•Air cushion seat provides awesome comfort on those long rides
•Floorboard design features large holes for awesome mud evacuation, and special rugs avoid buildup from underneath
•Convenient water resistant storage
•Centralized wiring layout, for improved protection against the elements
•LCD Gauge includes Odometer, Trip 1, Trip 2, Clock, Fuel gauge and Gear position
•Warning indicators: Engine, Water Temperature, Reverse, Neutral, Parking, High Range, Low Range and LCD Drive / Differential Lock map
•35W Halogen headlight bulbs
•Neodymium hi-power magnet for improved output, charging capacity and light weight
•Forged Aluminum steering knuckle
•Gate type transmission shifter for improved shift feel
•Cartridge type oil filter located to the front of the engine for improved cooling and simplified maintenance
