Yamaha’s Exclusive On-Command® 4WD Unlike so many 4WD ATV systems on the market that put a computer in charge, the Yamaha On-Command® system keeps the rider in control. With selectable 2WD, limited-slip 4WD and a fully locked differential 4WD modes, the Grizzly EPS XT-R delivers power predictably and consistently.
Class-Leading Power Steering Reduced fatigue, excellent control and trail feel all come standard with the Grizzly EPS XT-R’s best-in-industry, speed-sensitive Electric Power Steering (EPS).
XT-R Edition The Grizzly EPS XT-R is the ultimate Yamaha ATV with enhanced terrain capability and confidence thanks to a factory-installed WARN® VRX 25 winch, aluminum wheels and 27-inch Maxxis® 'Zilla tires in matched front and rear sizes—all wrapped in high-quality painted bodywork and unique XT-R graphics.
High Performance Ultramatic® Transmission Grizzly EPS XT-R’s Ultramatic® transmission features a gated shifter, dual-range (Hi/Lo) drive plus reverse gear, and the industry's most advanced—and durable—CVT drive system available. An automatic centrifugal clutch maintains constant belt tension for reduced wear, and a sprag clutch delivers natural all-wheel engine braking.
Engine Built to Excite For the trail rider looking for excitement in every ride, the ideal engine should balance strong big-bore power with immediate, responsive midrange. The Grizzly EPS XT-R features a potent 686cc engine with power delivery, torque and engine character all optimized for recreational riding.
Yamaha’s Exclusive On-Command® 4WD The three-position On-Command® 4WD system lets you switch between 2WD, limited-slip 4WD and a fully locked differential 4WD all with the simple push of a button. An override button allows the engine to reach maximum rpm in full differential lock mode.
High-Mounted Air Intakes Tackle mud and water with confidence thanks to the Grizzly EPS XT-R’s high-mounted air intake layout. The design increases power and torque while providing additional room for on-board storage and easy tool-less servicing of the air filter. A separate intake tract reduces drive system temperatures and assists in keeping water and debris from entering the drive case.
Stainless Steel Exhaust To maintain clean-running performance for years, the Grizzly EPS XT-R uses a stainless steel exhaust system and features a screen-type spark arrestor for great power with minimum noise output.
High-Capacity Radiator Slow-speed technical riding can place a lot of thermal demands on a liquid-cooled motor, so the Grizzly EPS XT-R features a high-capacity radiator with fan assist that delivers plenty of air flow for maximum cooling efficiency, and is positioned high in the frame for optimal protection.
27-inch XT-R Tire Package For deep mud, scree slopes and any other poor traction terrain out there, the Grizzle EPS XT-R comes ready to climb with big 27-inch Maxxis® 'Zilla tires mounted on strong and lightweight aluminum rims. The 'Zilla tires use dual-compound sidewalls and an extra-tough carcass construction to handle anything you can throw at them. And with matched front and rear tire sizing, replacement on the trail is simplified.
Four-Wheel Hydraulic Disc Brakes Powerful and consistent braking comes standard on every Grizzly EPS XT-R thanks to four-wheel hydraulic disc brakes with unmatched braking feel.
Terrain-Tackling Ground Clearance To handle nearly any terrain with ease, the Grizzly EPS XT-R offers an impressive 11.8-inches of ground clearance and full-length composite skid plates for maximum underbelly protection.

10-Year-Belt Warranty The Grizzly EPS XT-R transmission uses its own cooling intake to maintain proper temperatures, an oversized belt to handle the torque of the large motor and Yamaha’s unique sprag clutch to maintain constant belt tension. The end result is a drivetrain built for years of trouble-free service that leaves the competition in the dust, and is backed by the industry's only 10-Year V-Belt Limited Warranty.
Aggressive and Durable Styling Rugged composite front bumper resists scratching and won’t rust, while injection-molded fenders and CV joint guards protect against rock and debris damage.
LED Headlights and Taillight LED technology uses less power, creates brighter, sharper illumination and offers lifetime durability. A handlebar-mounted halogen work light provides additional illumination that moves with rider input for excellent visibility.
