The Grizzly 300 is powered by a 287cc 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 32mm carburetor that delivers smooth power.
“This all-new Grizzly 300 is built for the farmer who needs a durable, dependable light utility vehicle or rider who wants a fun two-wheel-drive recreational ATV,” said Steve Nessl, Yamaha’s ATV and SxS group 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 out performs any similarly priced competing model. The durable engine and dual range transmission offers Hi range for light duty and trail riding plus Low range for tougher chores and towing. This bear can pull more than 720 pounds and carry more than 140 combined pounds on the ATV’s front and rear racks. 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. Under seat marine grade electrical components ensure protection from the elements, and the 2.8 gallon fuel tank provides ample range for chores or trail rides.
The all new Grizzly 300 will be available in December 2011 and comes in Steel Blue and Hunter Green. More information about this and other Yamaha utility ATVs is at www.YamahaOutdoors.com
