Japanese motoring giant, Yamaha has just launched a new range of all-terrain vehicles for 2022
Japanese motoring giant, Yamaha has just launched a new range of all-terrain vehicles for 2022 including special editions of the Kodiak 450 and 700 ATVs with spruced up two tone, paintwork and alloy wheels.
To enhance the buying experience, customers are offered the opportunity to specify their own ATV using a digital configurator.
To explain the function of this device, Yamaha ATV manager William Kay said: “The configurator enables customers to personalise a Yamaha product by choosing accessories and paintwork options. Once happy with the specification the customer can request a quotation and share it with a dealer of their choice to source their vehicle.”
Helpful features come as standard throughout the range of Yamaha Kodiak 450 ATVs including a diff lock on all-electric power steering models and Ultramatic transmission. This helps to maintain tension on the drive belt to provide a consistent throttle response.
With its punchy 421cc 4-stroke engine producing plenty of smooth torque at low revs, the Kodiak 450 has plenty of power to conquer the toughest terrain. The rider is also able to automatically switch between 2WD, 4WD and diff lock settings with the push of a button.
The Japanese motoring manufacturer has committed to fitting Warn VRX 25 winches as standard on all Kodiak and Grizzly ATVs. The 15-metre winch has a 1,134-kilo pulling capacity and a rocker switch mounted to the handlebar.
William Kay said: “A Datatool Stealth S5 device will be supplied free of charge with new ATV models to offer farmers safety, security and peace of mind."
The compact design of Yamaha's ATVs has been maintained in the new models, offering farmers' machines that are easy to manoeuvre in and through tight spaces.
Mr Kay added: “We understand farmers need a stable ATV, but we don’t believe this should come at the cost of versatility. It is important that an ATV can go anywhere.” For more, see www.yamaha-motor.eu
