The Grizzly 450 has proven itself in active front line service in the harshest of conditions. Desert sands and rough terrain can cause problems for all but the toughest of machines and the Grizzly 450 has literally become a life saver for front line troops. Able to carry large loads the 450 seems to be able to cope with everything that the army asks of it. A minimum of modification sees army lighting systems fitted along with winches and other accessories including trailers to further increase the capabilities of this ATV. Soldiers are trained in ATV riding skills in the UK and use the Grizzly for a multitude of different tasks.
Even supreme ability has no value if it cannot be easily deployed, so practicality is the catalyst that makes Yamaha ATVs so uniquely and effortlessly capable.
To perform the hardest work in the toughest environments, there are no ATVs better qualified or better engineered than Yamaha Utility ATVs. They are tireless workhorses. But that's not all they are. When time permits, Yamaha Utility ATVs can have fun too.
The water cooled, single cylinder powerplant of the Grizzly is designed specifically for this ATV being compact, light and robust with excellent performance..
Push button selection for 2WD and 4WD and Front Diff Lock provides true 4WD when required. The front Diff Lock system features a rev limiter and Override button for extreme conditions.
Manual selection for Forward Hi or Low ratios plus Reverse. The Park position locks the wheels mechanically and the gear lever is activated via a rod for added durability and control.
The engine delivers its power via Yamaha's Ultramatic CVT system. This variable ratio system means that once a gear is selected no further changes are required from 0mph to full speed. A sprag clutch system ensures full, all wheel downhill engine braking when in 4WD.
