All-new for 2019, the Grizzly 90 combines the Proven Off-Road performance and versatility of its namesake with a fun and confidence-inspiring 90cc engine and CVT transmission for entry-level riders 10-years-old and up to develop their off-road abilities. The youth model offers several Grizzly DNA features including mud-protection fenders, trail-pointed comfort suspension, front and rear cargo racks, and new Grizzly-tread tires. Parents can feel confident introducing their first-time rider to the excitement of ATV riding with an electronic speed limiter and adjustable throttle stop. The Grizzly 90 also gives new riders the capability and comfort to grow and adjust for years to come with a large plush seat and open floorboards. The New Grizzly 90 is available at a $2,999 MSRP.
Also joining the Grizzly family is a second big-bore SE model featuring Tactical Black painted bodywork and a pre-installed WARN Winch. With Yamaha-exclusive 27-inch Maxxis ‘Zilla tires, new 14-inch two-tone cast aluminum wheels, and a wider track width, the big-bore Grizzly boasts an award-winning and reliable 700cc-class engine tuned for dynamic recreational riding on the most demanding trails. It combines smooth, responsive, and quick-revving power with increased mid-range and improved acceleration. Producing less noise and vibration, the 2019 Grizzly delivers a sportier riding experience than ever. The new Grizzly SE is available at a $10,999 MSRP.
A new Tactical Black Kodiak 700 SE is also included in the 2019 fall lineup. The Kodiak 700 SE is built for both work and play providing a comfortable, confidence-inspiring ride. Powered by Yamaha’s legendary 700-class single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine, the 2019 Kodiak 700 SE is built Real World Tough with cast-aluminum wheels, more than 1,300 pounds of towing capacity, 110-pound front rack capacity, and 198-pound rear rack capacity for a work-ready design and capability. The new Tactical Black Kodiak 700 SE is available at a $9,299 MSRP.
Lastly, a new Tactical Black Wolverine X4 SE joins the 2019 lineup, matching the current Tactical Black Wolverine X2 SE.
