Yamaha has received Field & Stream magazine’s “Best of the Best” award for the new 2011 Grizzly 450 with Electric Power Steering (EPS). The 2010 recognition gives Yamaha a clean sweep for its power steering models – the 2007 Grizzly 700 EPS, 2009 Grizzly 550 EPS and now 2011 Grizzly 450 EPS have all been named “Best of the Best" since Yamaha introduced power steering to the ATV world in 2006.
According to Field & Stream: The Best of the Best judging criteria include the significance of the innovation, the quality of the design, and the value it brings to hunters. Criteria varied, depending upon the category, but all of the winning products shared one quality: excellence in their field. The Grizzly 450 EPS will be featured in the September 2010 issue of Field & Stream.
The new Yamaha Grizzly 450 EPS comes with Yamaha’s industry-leading electric power steering, a new one-piece frame and an all-new rear sealed wet brake. It also incorporates Yamaha’s Ultramatic® automatic transmission with CVT clutch system, On-Command® 2WD, 4WD and 4WD with full diff-lock, and four-wheel independent suspension. It is available this summer in Hunter Green, Steel Blue and Realtree® AP™ HD camo.
