The big news? Grizzly is now pre-wired for the Yamaha Adventure Pro GPS tablet. /b
New for 2020, the Griz is now prewired for the company’s tablet which runs Magellan software. Operating as a user-friendly GPS and vehicle data tracking unit, it made its debut on Yamaha’s SxS rigs before making its way to their ATVs for 2020. It offers Magellan’s extensive GPS network to off-road gearheads as it is preloaded with thousands of waypoints, OHV trails, and – naturally – Yamaha dealers. Thanks to updates, new features are added frequently.
“Following the incredible response to the Adventure Pro’s integration on our Side-by-Side models, we have added the same functionality to the Grizzly, giving recreational ATV customers the ability to take their ride to the next level, ” said Steve Nessl, Yamaha’s motorsports marketing manager.
Beyond the tablet tech, changes for the Grizzly are limited to new color combinations and accessory packs. A hundred dollar bill under ten grand will net riders a 700-class ATV in either Alpine White or Tactical Green. Painting it in Realtree Edge camo patterns costs an extra $400. Hey, they gotta pay for those licensing fees somehow.
Kodiak continues to bring the goods and a 1300lb towing capacity. Go ahead and load up those cargo racks as they good for a combined 308lb weight rating. The 2020 Kodiak 700 starts at $7199 for a green or red unit and $7499 for a Realtree paint scheme. A snazzy SE Tactical Black version brings aluminium wheels and a Warn winch to the party for $9799. The 450’s still available, too, starting at $6199. Pro tip: with only a thousand bucks between the two, be sure and pop for the 700.
The Raptor 700 sees only minor changes for 2020, continuing to flatten desert dunes with its 9.1 inch front- and 10.1 inch rear wheel travel. It maintains a light weight thanks to its steel-aluminum frame and controlled-fill aluminum sub-frame and swing-arm. Prices start at $8099.
