  • INDEPENDENT DOUBLE WISHBONE FRONT AND REAR SUSPENSION: Independent double wishbone suspension, with 7.6” of front wheel travel and 9.1” at the rear, provides excellent rider comfort even on the toughest trails, thanks to nitrogen-charged shocks with 5-way adjustable preload.
  • FOUR-WHEEL HYDRAULIC DISC BRAKES: Four-wheel hydraulic disc brakes with dual-piston calipers serve up powerful and consistent braking performance to add to rider confidence with unmatched braking feel.
  • UNDERSEAT FUEL TANK: An optimized 4.76-gallon fuel tank is located under the seat for excellent mass centralization and handling.
  • GENEROUS GROUND CLEARANCE: The Grizzly EPS offers an impressive 11.3 inches of maximum ground clearance and full-length composite skid plates, to deliver maximum underbelly protection while enhancing terrainability.
  • AGGRESSIVE AND DURABLE STYLING: Rugged blow-molded front bumper resists scratching and won’t rust, while injection-molded fenders and CV joint guards protect against rock and debris damage.


  • HIGH-MOUNTED AIR INTAKE: A long, high-mounted air intake layout increases power and torque while providing additional room for center storage and easy tool-less servicing of the large foam air filter element.
  • STAINLESS STEEL EXHAUST: Stainless steel exhaust system features a screen-type spark arrestor for great power with minimum noise output.
  • HIGH-CAPACITY RADIATOR WITH FAN: High-capacity radiator with fan-assist delivers plenty of air flow for maximum cooling efficiency and is positioned high in the frame for optimal protection.
  • DRIVE SYSTEM AIR INTAKE: Specially designed, high-mounted drive system air intake helps reduce drive system temperatures and assists in keeping water and debris from entering the drive case.

Top Features

  • HIGH-PERFORMANCE ULTRAMATIC® TRANSMISSION: Grizzly’s Ultramatic® transmission features a gated shifter, dual-range (Hi/Lo) drive plus reverse gear, and is the most advanced—and durable—CVT drive system available. An automatic centrifugal clutch maintains constant belt tension for reduced belt wear and a sprag clutch delivers natural all-wheel engine braking.
  • TRAIL-READY CHASSIS: Advanced chassis designed to take advantage of 26-inch, exclusively-designed Maxxis® tires, 5-way preload adjustable suspension and four-wheel disc brakes, creating optimum terrainability, comfort and handling—especially on long, rough trails.

  • YAMAHA’S EXCLUSIVE ON-COMMAND 4WD: The three-position On-Command® 4WD system lets you switch between 2WD, limited-slip 4WD and a fully locked differential 4WD all with the simple push of a button. An override button allows engine to reach maximum rpm in full diff lock mode, and a straight driveshaft layout eliminates U-joints for reduced friction, noise, vibration, and maintenance.
  • ADVANCED INSTRUMENTATION: Digital instrument panel boasts a multifunction LCD display with speedometer, odometer, dual tripmeter, hour meter, 4WD status, transmission position, clock and fuel gauge.
  • CLASS-LEADING POWER STEERING: Yamaha’s Electric Power Steering (EPS) provides the industry’s best balance of steering assist and positive feedback from the trail, providing maximum comfort and confidence.
