All new Grizzly EPS released

Yamaha is pleased to announce the new flagship 2019 model Grizzly EPS ATV that is more capable than ever. Major revisions to the engine and drive train have made the new big bear a smoother operator with optimised torque, power delivery and engine character for aggressive riding.

The new Grizzly 700 EPS is available in Steel Blue with steel wheels at $14,599 RRP inc GST or Realtree Edge with aluminium wheels at $15,199 RRP inc GST.

New 700-class engine
For 2019, Yamaha’s engineers have boosted the performance of the big bore Grizzly EPS even further, with more useable power. Grizzly now runs a new liquid cooled 686cc engine with improved engine response and lower vibration, noise and fuel consumption compared to the current 708cc engine. 

In order to achieve this, a number of internal engine changes have been made including revised bore and stroke dimensions, a low friction plated cylinder – was cast iron - and the cast piston is now a forged item. A new air intake improves engine output especially in the key mid-range area while redesigned engine mounts make for even smoother running.

New drive train
Yamaha’s Ultramatic transmission now features different CVT weights and gear ratios to suit each model. The system continues to feature a gated shifter, dual range (Hi/Lo) drive plus reverse gear, and is the most advanced — and durable — CVT drive system available. An automatic centrifugal clutch maintains constant belt tension for reduced belt wear and a sprag clutch delivers natural all-wheel engine braking.

New instrument package
For 2019, the Grizzly EPS receives a new instrument cluster with larger all-LCD readouts for visibility.

Yamaha’s exclusive On-Command 4WD
The three-position On-Command® 4WD system lets you switch between 2WD, limited-slip 4WD and a fully locked differential 4WD all with the simple push of a button. An override button allows engine to reach maximum rpm in full diff lock mode, and a straight driveshaft layout eliminates U-joints for reduced friction, noise, vibration, and maintenance.

High-mounted air intake
Tackle mud and water thanks to the Grizzly’s high-mounted air intake layout. The design increases power and torque while providing additional room for on-board storage and easy, tool-less servicing of the foam air filter.

Stainless steel exhaust
To maintain clean-running performance for years, the Grizzly EPS uses a stainless steel exhaust system and features a screen-type spark arrestor for great power with minimum noise output.

High-capacity radiator
Slow-speed technical riding can place a lot of thermal demands on a liquid-cooled motor, so the Grizzly EPS features a high-capacity radiator with fan assist that delivers plenty of air flow for maximum cooling efficiency—and it’s positioned high in the frame for optimal protection.

Drive system air intake

Specially designed, high-mounted drive system air intake helps reduce drive system temperatures and assists in keeping water and debris from entering the drive case.

Trail ready chassis
With plenty of ground clearance and adjustable suspension, the Grizzly EPS tackles rough terrain with ease. Beyond the long-travel shocks, wide-arc A-arms and full-body skid plates ensure the Grizzly EPS is ready to keep going when you are.

High-performance tyres
Maximising available traction, the Grizzly EPS features 26-inch, exclusively-designed Maxxis tyres that provide precise steering feel and feedback.

Four-wheel hydraulic disc brakes
Powerful and consistent braking comes standard on every Grizzly EPS thanks to four-wheel hydraulic disc brakes with unmatched braking feel.

Generous ground clearance
To handle nearly any terrain with ease, the Grizzly EPS offers an impressive 287mm of maximum ground clearance and full-length composite skid plates, for maximum underbelly protection.

Independent double wishbone front and rear suspension
Independent double wishbone suspension, with 193mm of front wheel travel and 231mm at the rear, provides excellent rider comfort even on the toughest trails, thanks to nitrogen-charged shocks with 5-way adjustable preload.

Class-leading power steering
Minimise fatigue and attack every corner with Yamaha’s Electric Power Steering (EPS), the industry’s best balance of electric steering assist and positive trail feedback.

Underseat fuel tank
An optimised 18 litre fuel tank is located under the seat for excellent mass centralisation and handling.

Plush saddle
A long, plush seat improves rider comfort for extended days exploring every trail, with plenty of room for the rider to move during aggressive riding.

Aggressive and durable styling
Rugged composite front bumper resists scratching and won’t rust, while injection-moulded fenders and CV joint guards protect against rock and debris damage.

LED headlights and tail light
LED technology uses less power, creates brighter, sharper illumination, and offers lifetime durability. A handlebar-mounted halogen work light provides additional illumination that moves with rider input for excellent visibility.

Ready for accessories
The Grizzly EPS was engineered in concert with a range of accessories for perfect fit and function, for nearly every type of ride you can find. With a standard 12V power point, you can keep devices charged, too.

Ready for work
Rugged, large-diameter steel cargo racks with durable wrinkle paint finish can pack a total of 140kg combined (50kg. front, 90kg rear). Three on-board storage compartments keep things secure. Centre-mounted, heavy-duty two-inch receiver comes standard on Grizzly EPS and can tow more than 1300 pounds

Built Real World Tough, assembled in the USA
As with other Yamaha ATVs and Side-by-Sides, the Grizzly EPS is assembled in the USA to meet Yamaha’s exacting standards for durability and reliability.
