New more powerful 708cc DOHC engine
Displacing 708cc, the new engine is 20cc bigger than the previous model, and another significant change is the use of a newly designed double overhead camshaft (DOHC) 4-valve cylinder head that gives increased running efficiency. Featuring a 44mm Mikuni fuel injection system, the engine delivers 9% more torque and 6% more power than the previous design, and the character of the increased power delivery is optimized so that the Grizzly 700 EPS is able to deliver smooth and strong performance across the rev range.

The Grizzly 700 EPS is equipped with powerful new LED headlights that give the best possible illumination together with high levels of efficiency and long service life. An important new feature is the fitment of a new halogen worklight that is located centrally in front of the handlebars. This central light not only gives additional illumination when riding by following the movements of the handlebars, and can be used as a worklight when stationary.
High traction 26-inch tyres
Another significant improvement to be introduced on the Grizzly 700 EPS is the use of exclusive new 26-inch Maxxis tyres. The advantage of the 26x10x12 rear tyres and 26x8x12 front tyres is that they provide optimum traction and durability, combined with high levels of comfort and steering precision for higher levels of handling performance and rider comfort.
Greater load carrying and storage capacity
To match the aggressive and sporty new styling, the Grizzly 700 EPS is also equipped with newly designed front and rear racks that integrate with the new body panels.

The front sides of the seat are 60mm longer, and the new seat also benefits from a redesigned mounting system that enables the rider to remove the seat quickly and easily when gaining access to maintenance items such as the air filter.
Underseat fuel tank
To facilitate the fitment of the new easy-access air filter and new centre storage compartment, the fuel tank on the Grizzly 700 EPS is relocated to a new position under the seat - whereas previously it was positioned further forwards and above the engine. Featuring the fuel filler on the right side rear fender, this 18-litre tank gives a good operating range.
New KYB front and rear suspension
To give higher levels of riding comfort together with superior handling, the Grizzly 700 EPS is equipped with newly designed KYB nitrogen gas shocks at the front and rear.

The shocks are also adjustable for preload, allowing the rider to tailor the settings to suit the prevailing terrain conditions or load.

Regarded as being the most durable CVT in the ATV world, the Yamaha Ultramatic® system incorporates a sprag clutch that gives a natural all-wheel engine braking feeling when decelerating or descending hills. The Ultramatic® system also delivers constant belt tension for smoother operation and increased durability and service life, and an integrated cooling fan ensures stable and consistent performance.
On-Command® drive system
Another class-leading rider aid to be featured on the Grizzly 700 EPS is the On-Command® 4 wheel drive system. Using one button situated on the right side handlebar, the rider can quickly and easily select 2WD, 4WD or 4WD with diff lock, to suit the terrain. This high-tech push-button system delivers instantaneous drive, enabling the rider to switch seamlessly between different modes depending upon the circumstances.
Yamaha Electric Power Steering (EPS)
For added comfort and reduced physical effort the Grizzly 700 EPS is equipped with Electronic Power Steering (EPS) that has been designed to offer the best balance of rider assist and positive feedback.

New digital LCD multi-function instruments
Wherever the Grizzly 700 EPS rider goes, they can be sure to have have access to all of the important machine running information via the new LCD multi-function instruments. Featuring a fuel gauge, speedometer, odometer, dual trip meters, hour meter, clock, 4WD/Diff Lock status, transmission gear selector and EPS warning light, the newly designed meter is located closer to the rider so that accurate machine status can be viewed quickly. For added convenience there is a 12V DC outlet to power accessories and devices.
Front and rear disc brakes
The Grizzly 700 EPS is equipped with the most advanced braking system in its class, and is the only big-bore ATV to feature front and rear disc brakes with twin-piston calipers. This industry-leading system provides strong and consistent braking power, and gives a high degree of feel with outstanding stopping performance through the bar mounted brake levers and the right side brake pedal.
For increased versatility the Grizzly 700 and Grizzly 700 EPS models are equipped as standard with a tow tab that is designed to accommodate a standard towing ball, while the Grizzly 700 SE EPS is fitted with a 2-inch receiver. With the ability to tow anything from camping gear through to supplies or tools - in addition to their 140kg total rack capacity - these go-anywhere, do-anything ATV models are amongst the most capable 4-wheel drive vehicles ever built.
Full coverage lightweight skid plates
The Grizzly is equipped with durable new lightweight plastic skid plates that protect the underside at the front and rear. These skid plates benefit from recessed mounting points that give a smooth surface to minimize the chance of being snagged on rough and technical terrain, and this comprehensive full underbody protection system incorporates multiple engine and gearbox drain to facilitate routine maintenance.
