YAMAHA ATV – UTILITY – KODIAK 700 EPS / EPS SE / 700

YAMAHA ATV – UTILITY – KODIAK 700 EPS / EPS SE / 700

DESCRIPTION

Designed for farmers, foresters and industrial users who need a tough utility vehicle for hard work in extreme conditions, the user-friendly Kodiak 700 delivers superior performance with outstanding value. Powered by a high torque 708cc engine – and featuring a compact chassis with a plush seat for day-long riding comfort – this extraordinary worker can carry a 140kg payload plus rider, and tow up to 600kg. The smooth-running Ultramatic® CVT transmission and mechanical 2WD/4WD make this hard-working ATV ideal for towing, and with Electric Power Steering on the EPS model – and even more features on the SE model – the Kodiak 700 makes every working day that little bit easier.

Yamaha Utility ATVs are built with one goal in mind: easing the workloads of those in tough outdoor environments. This philosophy is engineered in every detail. Like torque-heavy engines that get you moving when terrain is tricky, or loads are heavy; effort-reducing technologies like automatic transmission and Electric Power Steering; and ergonomic designs which mean you’ll still feel comfortable after a long day in the saddle. Plus, they run economically and require low maintenance. Yamaha Utility ATVs are tireless workhorses – but that’s not all they are. When time permits, these vehicles pack the punch to give riders a big dose of fun, too.

In order to give you full control, the Kodiak 700 is fitted with an easy to operate 2WD/4WD drive system. A handlebar mounted mechanical lever makes switching between 2WD and 4WD quick and effective, allowing you to choose the right option to suit the terrain and surface conditions.

Carrying capacity and winch
