HIGH PERFORMANCE ULTRAMATIC® TRANSMISSION: The Kodiak 700’s Ultramatic® transmission features a gated shifter, dual-range (Hi/Lo) drive plus reverse gear, and the most advanced—and durable—CVT drive system available. An automatic centrifugal clutch maintains constant belt tension for reduced wear, and a sprag clutch delivers natural all-wheel engine braking.
BIG-BORE ENGINE BUILT TO EXPLORE: Tuned for strong midrange power, the Kodiak 700’s 686cc motor combines big-bore performance with a fun, usable engine character. The result is a torque-laden power delivery that is exciting out on the trails, while still being smooth and quiet when exploring or working 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. A robust mechanical 4WD system is selectable using a handlebar-mounted lever.
HIGH-MOUNTED AIR INTAKE: Confidently 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 that delivers plenty of air flow for maximum cooling efficiency, and is positioned high in the frame for optimal protection.
DRIVE SYSTEM AIR INTAKE: A 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 and a sealed wet rear brake system.
TERRAIN-TACKLING GROUND CLEARANCE: To handle nearly any terrain with ease, the Kodiak 700 offers an impressive 10.8 inches of ground clearance and full-length composite skid plates for maximum underbelly protection.
INDEPENDENT DOUBLE WISHBONE FRONT AND REAR SUSPENSION: An independent double wishbone suspension, with 7.1 inches of front wheel travel and 9.1 inches at the rear, provides excellent rider comfort even on the toughest trails.
UNDERSEAT FUEL TANK: An optimized 4.76-gallon fuel tank is located under the seat for excellent mass centralization and improved handling.
COMPACT ERGONOMICS: The low seat improves rider comfort and simplifies mounting and dismounting, while providing plenty of room for the rider to move during riding. 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.
EXTENSIVE CARGO CAPACITY: Rugged, large-diameter steel cargo racks with durable wrinkle paint finish can pack a total of 308 pounds combined (110 lb front, 198 lb rear). An on-board storage compartment keeps things dry too.
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.
10-YEAR-BELT WARRANTY: The Kodiak 700 transmission uses its own cooling intake to maintain proper temperatures, an oversized belt to handle the torque of the large motor and Yamaha’s unique sprag clutch to maintain constant belt tension. The end result is a drivetrain built for years of trouble-free service that leaves the competition in the dust, and is backed by the industry’s only 10-Year V-Belt Limited Warranty.
BIG-BORE ENGINE BUILT TO TACKLE THE REAL WORLD: The Kodiak 700 offers up Yamaha’s renowned riding excitement without sacrificing an ounce of comfort. Its potent 686cc engine is geared for low rpm cruising and smooth, quiet operation, while the enhanced midrange gives you impressive big-bore power exactly where you need it.
HIGH PERFORMANCE ULTRAMATIC® TRANSMISSION: Yamaha’s class-leading Ultramatic® transmission is proven to be the most durable CVT transmission on the market, combining immediate response with advanced features like natural, all-wheel engine braking for extra control and confidence.
TRAIL-READY CHASSIS:With plenty of ground clearance, 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.
COMPACT ERGONOMICS: To ease overall feel and handling and boost rider confidence, the Kodiak 700 combines big-bore engine performance with a more compact body design commonly found in mid-sized ATVs.
READY TO WORK: Heavy-duty steel cargo racks can pack a total of 308 pounds combined.
