Yamaha Kodiak 450

By Lynn Landberg, Senior Editor | September 28, 2010

The new Kodiak 450 4x4 has a three-step On-Command system with 4WD locking differential, allowing drivers to adjust to terrain or conditions at the push of a button. A high- and low-range gearing option allows maximum performance. Hydraulic front and rear brakes coupled with an engine braking system provides plenty of stopping power. The longer radiator, positioned high within the frame and behind the front guard, and the Ultramatic air intake system positioned 1 inch higher than on previous Kodiak models allows the driver to go into deeper water.
