Top Features

The Kodiak 700 EPS SE 2021 Yamaha Utility Motorcycle emphasizes middle power with gearing optimized for low rpm cruising and smooth-running motor mounts, all due to its 700-class engine, which delivers ample bore power without sacrificing comfort. For control and confidence, Yamaha’s class-leading gearbox blends quick reaction with sophisticated features like natural, all-wheel engine braking. The Ultramatic®, of course, has proved to be the most robust ATV transmission on the market.

The Kodiak 700 EPS SE handles rugged terrain with ease thanks to its high ground clearance and adjustable suspension. The Kodiak 700 EPS SE is equipped with wide-arc A-arms and full-body skid plates to tackle whatever the farm or trail may throw at it. The Kodiak 700 EPS SE blends large-bore performance with a more compact body shape typically seen in mid-sized ATVs to improve the overall feel and handling and enhance rider confidence.

With a factory-installed WARN® VRX 2500 winch (exclusively on the Covert Green SE model) and high-quality painted bodywork, the Kodiak 700 EPS Special Edition further improves formidable terrain capabilities and confidence.

Capability

The Ultramatic® gearbox in the Kodiak 700 EPS SE 2021 Yamaha Utility Motorcycle has a gated shifter, dual-range (Hi/Lo) drive with reverse gear, and the most advanced—and durable—CVT drive system available. A sprag clutch offers natural all-wheel engine braking, while an automated centrifugal clutch maintains consistent belt tension for decreased belt wear.

The Kodiak’s engine combines considerable barrel power with a powerful midrange, providing practical, enjoyable, and helpful management. The 686cc engine of the Kodiak 700 EPS SE offers optimal torque, power delivery, and character on trails while remaining smooth and quiet while exploring or working on the job site. The three-position On-Command® 4WD system allows you to choose between 2WD, limited-slip 4WD, and a fully locked differential 4WD with the press of a button. In full diff lock mode, an override button enables the engine to achieve maximum rpm, and a straight driveshaft arrangement removes U-joints for less friction, noise, vibration, and maintenance.

With the Kodiak 700 EPS SE’s high-mounted air intake configuration, you can take on dirt and water. The design improves power and torque while allowing for more onboard storage and tool-free foam air filter maintenance. The Kodiak 700 EPS SE utilizes a stainless steel exhaust system and a screen-type spark arrestor for excellent power and low noise output over many years.

Slow-speed technical riding puts a lot of thermal strain on a liquid-cooled engine, so the Kodiak 700 EPS SE has a large radiator that provides enough air flow for optimum cooling efficiency and is mounted high in the frame for maximum protection.

A high-mounted drive system air intake helps keep water and debris out of the drive case while lowering drive system temperatures. The new Kodiak 700 EPS SE 2021 Yamaha Utility Motorcycle has 25-inch Maxxis® tires that offer an accurate steering feel and input, maximizing available traction.

The hydraulic front disc brakes and sealed wet rear brake system come standard on every Kodiak 700 EPS SE, providing solid and dependable stopping. The Kodiak 700 EPS SE has a remarkable 10.8-inch maximum ground clearance and full-length composite skid plates for optimum underbelly protection, allowing it to tackle virtually any terrain with ease.

Comfort

Thanks to shocks with 5-way adjustable preload, the independent double-wishbone suspension with 7.1” front wheel travel and 9.1” rear wheel travel offer excellent rider comfort even on the most challenging terrain. With Yamaha’s Electric Power Steering (EPS), the industry’s most refined mix of electric steering aid with excellent trail feedback, you can reduce fatigue and tackle every turn.

For good mass centralization and handling, a 4.76-gallon fuel tank is placed beneath the seat. A soft seat enhances rider comfort for extended days, exploring every route by providing lots of space for the rider to move about while riding. Despite its full-size capability, the Kodiak 700 EPS SE has a more compact body design that feels and handles like a mid-sized ATV.

Confidence

The front bumper is made of a rigid composite material that won’t scrape and won’t corrode. A handlebar-mounted halogen work light offers extra lighting that moves with rider input for increased versatility, while paired halogen headlights guarantee excellent visibility.

The Tactical Black Kodiak 700 EPS SE features a 2500-pound capacity winch installed directly from the manufacturing floor to offer riders even more confidence in getting through the most challenging circumstances. The Kodiak 700 EPS SE was designed to work in tandem with various attachments to provide a great fit and function for almost any kind of riding. You may also keep gadgets charged using a standard 12V power outlet.

Steel cargo racks with wide diameters and a durable wrinkle paint finish can carry a total of 308 pounds (110 lbs. front, 198 lbs. rear). Additionally, an onboard storage box keeps items dry.

The Kodiak 700 EPS SE, like other Yamaha ATVs and Side-by-Sides, is built in the United States to Yamaha’s high standards for durability and dependability.
