Have you been wondering what’s under the hood of Yamaha’s new motorcycles and ATVs? Stop scratching your head because today Yamaha releases their 2011 motorsport lineup!
On the four-wheel side of things, the Kodiak 450 receives a facelift. Like the full-size Grizzly 550 and 700, the new Kodiak is equipped with a variable Electric Power Steering (EPS) system.
A new one-piece lightweight chassis offers nimble handling, a sealed rear wet brake delivers more accurate brake feeling and durability, and a rear anti-sway bar improves handling and steering accuracy.
Yamaha has also released the all-new Raptor 125R. Inspired by its big-bore big brothers, the Raptor 125 is the perfect segue into off-road riding.
This little guy is powered by an engine that feels way bigger than 125cc, a 5-speed transmission and features a Raptor 250R based chassis for great handling characteristics.
“The new Raptor 125 is a great option for new or less experienced riders to enjoy off-road,” says Jon Blaicher, Yamaha Product Manager, ATV. “It features smooth four-stroke power and great performance at an affordable price.”
