Unlike many middleweight utility ATVs, Kodiak 450 isn’t just a smaller engine under a full-size body. Yamaha built the Kodiak 450 from the ground up to give riders a compact chassis for precise handling and maneuverability on the trail.
Kodiak 450 features a torquey 421cc SOHC engine designed to provide a balance of responsive power and smooth character for long riding days with minimal fatigue. Mikuni® fuel injection means easy cold starts and flawless fuel delivery in nearly any condition while liquid-cooling and a high-volume fan system ensure reliable, consistent performance for years to come.
Kodiak 450® brings Yamaha’s renowned combination of the industry’s most durable automatic transmission—Ultramatic®—with the rider-centric control and traction of On-Command® selectable 4WD. The result is outstanding capability with the confidence to get you through the most challenging terrain and back again./yamahamotorsports
