High-Performance Ultramatic® Transmission
Kodiak 700 EPS SE's Ultramatic® transmission features a gated shifter, dual-range (Hi/Lo) drive plus reverse gear, and is the most advanced—and durable—CVT drive system available. An automatic centrifugal clutch maintains constant belt tension for reduced belt wear and a sprag clutch delivers natural all-wheel engine braking.
New Engine Built to Explore
Packing practical, fun and usable power, the Kodiak 700 EPS SE’s motor balances big bore power with a strong midrange. The Kodiak 700 EPS SE features a new 700-class engine for 2019 with optimized torque, power delivery and engine character that is fun and exciting on trails while still being smooth and quiet when exploring trails or on the job site.
Independent Double Wishbone Front and Rear Suspension
Independent double wishbone suspension, with 7.6” of front wheel travel and 9.1” at the rear, provides excellent rider comfort even on the toughest trails, thanks to nitrogen-charged shocks with 5-way adjustable preload.
Class-Leading Power Steering
Minimize fatigue and attack every corner with Yamaha’s Electric Power Steering (EPS), the industry’s best balance of electric steering assist and positive trail feedback.
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, and LED taillights are bright and long-lasting.
