Yamaha Motor Corp., U.S.A., has rolled out the all-new Grizzly 300 two-wheel-drive, utility all-terrain vehicle, combining best-in-class technology with a value price at $4,099. This new light-utility ATV features a smooth and powerful engine and is the only model in its class with a fully automatic dual-range transmission.
The Grizzly 300 is powered by a 287-cc, single overhead cam four-stroke engine. Its class-exclusive liquid cooling provides precise temperature control and long engine life even in extreme environments. At the center of its lightweight and durable chassis is a power plant with a 32-mm carburetor that delivers smooth power.
“This all-new Grizzly 300 is built for the farmer who needs a durable, dependable, light-utility vehicle or for a rider who wants a fun two-wheel-drive recreational ATV,” says Steve Nessl, Yamaha marketing manager. “Grizzly styling and reliability combined with all of its great features make this new 300 the best machine in its class.”
Feature for feature, the Grizzly 300 easily outperforms any similarly priced competing model, he adds. The durable engine and dual-range transmission offer high-range for light duty and trail riding plus low-range for tough chores and towing. It can pull more than 720 pounds and carry more than 140 combined pounds on the ATV’s front and rear racks, according to Yamaha. It features separate hydraulic front and rear disc brakes and 22-inch Maxxis tires with a rugged lug pattern for optimum traction and durability.
Creature comforts include a plush seat, push-button electronic start, water resistant under-seat storage box, and large front and rear fenders with full floorboards for mud/splash protection. The 2.8-gallon fuel tank provides ample range for chores or trail rides. The all new Grizzly 300 will be available in December and comes in steel blue and hunter green.
