Big Bore Engine Built to Tackle the Real World Rebuilt for 2019, the Kodiak® 700 combines big bore power without losing an ounce of comfort, thanks to its new 700-class engine with improved midrange power, and gearing designed for low rpm cruising and smooth-running motor mounts.
High-Performance Ultramatic® Transmission Yamaha’s class-leading transmission combines immediate response with advanced features like natural, all-wheel engine braking for control on confidence. And, of course, the Ultramatic is proven to be the most durable ATV transmission on the market.
Trail-Ready Chassis With plenty of ground clearance and adjustable suspension, the Kodiak 700 tackles rough terrain with ease. Wide-arc A-arms and full-body skid plates ensure the Kodiak 700 is able to handle anything the farm or trail can throw at it.
New for 2019
New 700-Class Engine For 2019, Yamaha’s engineers wanted to boost the midrange performance of the big bore Kodiak 700 even further, to put power right where you use it most. At the same time, the new motor features redesigned engine mounts, so despite the increase in performance, it runs even smoother than before.
High-Performance Ultramatic® Transmission Kodiak 700'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’s motor balances big bore power with a strong midrange. The 2019 Kodiak 700 features a new 700-class engine 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.
Gated Shift Lever and Handlebar-Mounted 4WD Control Yamaha’s peerless Ultramatic transmission runs through a five-position shift lever with High, Low, Neutral, Reverse and Park gates—for positive and precise transmission operation. Robust, mechanical 4WD system is selected using handlebar lever.
High-Mounted Air Intake Tackle mud and water thanks to the Kodiak 700’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 foam air filter.
Stainless Steel Exhaust To maintain clean-running performance for years, the Kodiak 700 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 Kodiak 700 features a high-capacity radiator with fan assist that delivers plenty of air flow for maximum cooling efficiency—and it’s positioned high in the frame for optimal protection.
Drive System Air Intake Specially designed, high-mounted drive system air intake helps reduce drive system temperatures and assists in keeping water and debris from entering the drive case.
High-Performance Tires Maximizing available traction, the Kodiak 700 features 25-inch Maxxis® tires that provide precise steering feel and feedback.
Strong, Durable Brakes Strong and reliable braking comes standard on every Kodiak 700 thanks to hydraulic front disc brakes matched with a sealed wet rear brake system.
Generous Ground Clearance To handle nearly any terrain with ease, the Kodiak 700 offers an impressive 11.3 inches of maximum ground clearance and full-length composite skid plates, for maximum underbelly protection.
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.
Underseat Fuel Tank An optimized 4.76-gallon fuel tank is located under the seat for excellent mass centralization and handling.
Compact Ergonomics A plush seat improves rider comfort for extended days exploring every trail, with plenty of room for the rider to move during aggressive riding. And despite the full-size performance, the Kodiak 700 features a more compact body design similar to a mid-sized ATV, to ease overall feel and handling.
Aggressive and Durable Styling Rugged composite front bumper resists scratching and won’t rust.
Brilliant Lighting Paired halogen headlights ensures good visibility, while a handlebar-mounted halogen work light provides additional illumination that moves with rider input for added flexibility. The LED taillights are bright and long-lasting, too.
Ready for Accessories The Kodiak 700 was engineered in concert with a range of accessories for perfect fit and function, for nearly every type of ride you can find. With a standard 12V power point, you can keep devices charged, too.
Extensive Cargo Capacity Rugged, large-diameter steel cargo racks with durable wrinkle paint finish can pack a total of 308 pounds combined (110 lbs. front, 198 lbs. rear). An on-board storage compartment keeps things dry, too.
Work-Ready Tow Capacity Center-mounted, heavy-duty two-inch receiver comes standard on Kodiak 700 and can tow more than 1300 pounds.
Built Real World Tough™, Assembled in the USA As with other Yamaha ATVs and Side-by-Sides, the Kodiak is assembled in the USA to meet Yamaha’s exacting standards for durability and reliability.
