Kodiak 450 ATV 2019
A force of nature.
Kodiak is already the leading name in the large capacity utility ATV world. And now we're taking the mid-sized utility class to the next level with the rugged Kodiak 450.
Its easy to use technology, outstanding durability and Yamaha reliability enable the Kodiak 450 to take on the toughest jobs in extreme terrain. The industry-leading On Command drive system allows you to switch seamlessly between 2WD and 4WD at the push of a button - and the Ultramatic automatic transmission makes every task more relaxing and enjoyable.
In terms of comfort and convenience, nothing comes close! And when work's over, this versatile ATV adds a new dimension to your precious leisure time.
With its rugged chassis and high-torque engine, the Kodiak 450 is a tireless worker that can carry 120kg on its racks - or tow up to 600kg - allowing you to traverse extreme terrain with tools, provisions or equipment.
Yamaha 421cc EFI engine
The Kodiak 450 has the power to conquer the toughest terrain thanks to its 421cc single cylinder liquid cooled engine that produces plenty of smooth torque at low revs. Its Electronic Fuel Injection system ensures easy starting in hot or cold conditions at a range of altitudes, giving reliable and economical performance wherever you go.
25-inch tyres with wide tread width
So that you can find the optimum traction even on the most challenging terrain the Kodiak 450 is fitted with specially developed front and rear tyres. Featuring an all-terrain tread pattern, the extra-wide AT25x8-12 front tyres and the AT25x10-12 rear tyres find extra grip whether you're riding across mud, snow and rock.
Long-stroke KYB gas charged front and rear shocks
The developed all-round independent double wishbone suspension gives 171mm front wheel travel and 189mm rear wheel travel, helping to make light work of extreme terrain. And with their ability to soak up bumps, ruts and other obstacles, the KYB gas-charged adjustable shocks deliver all day riding comfort.
On-Command® 2WD/4WD drive system
In hilly or slippery conditions, the Kodiak 450's industry-leading On-Command® drive system enables you to switch seamlessly over to the 4WD system with the push of a button. And when you're on flat or unchallenging terrain, another press on the button takes you back to 2WD, making this mid-sized utility ATV so easy and convenient to use.
Ultramatic® CVT transmission
Ultramatic® CVT automatic transmission makes every trip easier and more enjoyable, both for seasoned riders and also for new entrants to the mid-sized utility ATV class. Its durable V-belt delivers smooth acceleration - and the Kodiak 450's sophisticated all-wheel engine braking system gives you added confidence and control on downhills.
Precise and nimble handling
All day comfort comes as standard with the Kodiak 450, making this mid-sized utility ATV ideal for work and play. Featuring a low centre of gravity, the designed chassis delivers precise, nimble and confident handling for maximum riding enjoyment - and for an extra smooth ride, the engine features special vibration-reducing mounts.
