New Yamaha 421cc EFI engine

The Kodiak 450 has the power to conquer the toughest terrain thanks to its new 421cc single cylinder liquid cooled engine that produces plenty of smooth torque at low revs. Its Electronic Fuel Injection system ensures easy starting in hot or cold conditions at a range of altitudes, giving reliable and economical performance wherever you go.

Electric Power Steering (EPS)

The Kodiak 450 EPS model is equipped with Yamaha's highly acclaimed Electronic Power Steering (EPS) that is specially designed to give you the best balance of rider assist combined with a natural and positive feel. And for additional illumination, the EPS model features a powerful halogen handlebar-mounted high beam headlight.

25-inch tyres with wide tread width

So that you can find the optimum traction even on the most challenging terrain the Kodiak 450 is fitted with specially developed front and rear tyres. Featuring an all-terrain tread pattern, the extra-wide AT25x8-12 front tyres and the AT25x10-12 rear tyres find extra grip whether you're riding across mud, snow and rock.

New long-stroke KYB gas charged front & rear shocks

The newly developed all-round independent double wishbone suspension gives 171mm front wheel travel and 189mm rear wheel travel, helping to make light work of extreme terrain. And with their ability to soak up bumps, ruts and other obstacles, the KYB gas-charged adjustable shocks deliver all day riding comfort.


 On-Command 2WD/4WD/Diff Lock

The Kodiak 450 EPS DL models are fitted with an easy to operate On-Command® system with 2WD/4WD and 4WD with Diff Lock for full control and for quick and effective switching between 2WD and 4WD, or even full diff lock allowing you to choose the right option to suit the terrain and surface conditions.


Ultramatic® CVT transmission

Ultramatic® CVT automatic transmission makes every trip easier and more enjoyable, both for seasoned riders and also for new entrants to the mid-sized utility ATV class. Its durable V-belt delivers smooth acceleration - and the Kodiak 450's sophisticated all-wheel engine braking system gives you added confidence and control on downhills.

Precise and nimble handling

All day comfort comes as standard with the Kodiak 450, making this mid-sized utility ATV ideal for work and play. Featuring a low centre of gravity, the newly designed chassis delivers precise, nimble and confident handling for maximum riding enjoyment - and for an extra smooth ride, the engine features special vibration-reducing mounts.

Compact body size with full size ergonomics

By choosing the Kodiak 450 you're getting the best of both worlds, because this mid-sized utility ATV benefits from a compact and stylish new body design that's easy to manoeuvre in difficult terrain - while the spacious and ergonomic riding position ensures all day comfort whether you're working hard or enjoying some time off.

Handlebar mounted LCD dashboard

The handlebar mounted LCD dashboard features neutral, reverse and park indicator lights on the left - with coolant temperature, engine management and a 4WD engagement indicator on the right. And to keep you informed throughout your ride, the LCD display includes a speedometer, odometer, tripmeter, hour/service meters and fuel meter.

Taking mid-sized utility ATV design to the next level

The Kodiak 450 features the same rugged, functional and user-friendly design as our legendary big bore Kodiak 700. With a range of service friendly features, including an easily accessible air filter and oil dipstick, this tough mid-sized utility ATV is built to get the job done in the toughest terrain.

WARN Vantage 2000 winch

To underline its position as the definitive mid-sized utility ATV, the Kodiak 450 is fitted with a powerful WARN Vantage 2000 winch. With a payload capacity of 40kg on the front rack and 80 kg on the rear rack - as well as a towing capacity of 500kg - this rugged all terrain vehicle is ready to work tirelessly in the farm, forest or paddock.
