Ultramatic® and On-Command®
Kodiak 450® EPS 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.
With standard full-length skid plates, nearly 10-inches of ground clearance and independent double wishbone suspension with adjustable shocks, Kodiak 450 EPS is ready to tackle rough terrain without breaking a sweat—and with the sort of rider comfort that makes long rides a blast, too.
Unlike many middleweight utility ATVs, Kodiak 450 EPS isn’t just a smaller engine under a full-size body. Yamaha built the Kodiak 450 EPS from the ground up to give riders a compact chassis for precise handling and maneuverability on the trail.
To ensure that riders of all sizes can make the most of Kodiak 450 EPS, the ergonomics were designed for maximum flexibility. Riders large and small have room to move around thanks to a long, comfortable seat and wide floorboards. The Kodiak 450 EPS handlebar bend is shaped for riders of various heights to improve comfort for any rider.
Like all Yamaha ATVs and side-by-sides, Kodiak 450 EPS uses a range of features to improve durability and serviceability from the toolless air filter design and oil drain ports to the high-mounted air intakes and marine-grade electrical connectors.
