New Design & Performance Upgrades for Yamaha’s Top Sellers
Besides now being “Assembled in America” at Yamaha’s state-of-the-art Newnan, Georgia facility, the Grizzly 700 and 550 also get some new design and performance upgrades for 2012.
The 2012 Grizzly 700 and 550 receive new textured plastic body panels that increase durability and reduce wear over the life of the machines. New Maxxis tires with a tough, aggressive tread pattern add to the ATV’s excellent performance in extreme terrain.
The updated suspension includes new gas charged rear shocks with a high quality damping feel and improved bump absorption performance. The front suspension has also been updated and optimized to match the rear.
Although not ground-breaking changes to these two Grizzlies this year, Yamaha feels these subtle upgrades offer even more value to customers who have come to appreciate the quality and performance these ATVs deliver in spades.
It’s hard to argue with them about making too many changes either. If it ain’t broke, why change it?
Both Grizzlies are offered with Yamaha’s Electric Power Steering (EPS), one of the best power steering systems on the market and the first OEM to introduce it to the ATV market. You can also opt for these machines without EPS.
In addition to EPS, both Grizzlies feature the super durable Ultramatic automatic transmission, Yamaha’s three-way On-Command system, Yamaha Fuel Injection System (YFI), an open gate shifter on the left side of the handlebars and Yamaha’s superior LCD display module offering dual trip meter, speedometer, hour meter, odometer and clock, gear selection, fuel level indicator and more.
