Yamaha’s 2008 intro was a little underwhelming. The company launched a price-point version of the new 700 Grizzly sans EPS power steering and a new 250 Raptor. That was it.
Both these units are nice rides and meet important segments head-on but we believe the company needs to ramp-up their meat-of-the-market offering – the Kodiak/Grizzly 450.
This ATV has continued to sell well but is among the oldest designs in the sport’s most popular class. We’re looking for a new, EPS equipped, powered up, EFI inducted replacement for the 450 very soon.
