Almost 10 pounds lighter than our previous non-EPS Kodiak 450 models, even with the addition of Electric Power Steering, providing awesome power-to-weight ratio.

EPS dramatically reduces steering effort, especially in 4WD. It helps isolate the rider from external forces acting on the front wheels, which means you can worry less about the terrain and focus more on enjoying the ride. This speed and torque sensitive EPS system could be the single most important improvement to your off road experience in decades!

Reduces steering effort in all situations, helping to reduce rider fatigue while enhancing rider confidence and ease of operation

Variable assist is speed and torque sensitive

Improves stability on virtually all types of terrain at a wide range of speeds

Helps isolate the rider from external feedback from obstacles that come in contact with the front wheels

Push-button servo-controlled On-Command system enables you to switch between 2WD, limited-slip 4WD and fully locked differential 4WD - all with the simple push of a dash mounted button. Real 4WD when you need it. With Diff-lock engaged, you have traction to all 4 wheels, immediately. You decide when you need 4WD, the machine doesn't decide for you.

The fully automatic Ultramatic™ transmission is not only versatile and easy to use, it is also known to be one of the most reliable. This transmission is designed to maintain constant belt tension, meaning it does not have to slip for the ATV to come to a stop. This dramatically improves belt reliability and durability. It also provides continuous and predictable off-throttle engine braking, which can really help when negotiating difficult terrain. The Kodiak 450 also comes with an automotive style transmission lever with a parking lock mechanism, so you don't have to worry about setting a separate parking brake every time you get off the ATV.

The high-capacity cooling system with high-mounted fan-cooled radiator delivers consistent engine performance, excellent durability and protection from sticks and rocks.

Independent rear suspension with sway bar for limited chassis roll provides great terrainability.

Differential-lock speed override switch (forward only) allows the rider to override the speed limiter for certain conditions.

Convenient pushbutton electric start from any gear.

The one-piece steel tube frame and rear sway bar improve handling and cornering.

Rear wet brake is a multi-disc system running in hydraulic fluid inside a sealed unit. This keeps out the elements (such as mud and water) while providing powerful, consistent stopping power and greatly reduced maintenance.

Ground clearance of 10.8 inches and a high-impact plastic skidplate provide terrainability and undercarriage protection.

Trick digital instrument panel boasts a multifunction LCD display with speedometer, odometer, dual tripmeter, hour meter, 4WD status, transmission position and clock.

12-volt D.C. terminal provides a convenient power source for accessories such as cellular phones, handheld lights or GPS.

Fully independent long-travel four-wheel suspension features double-wishbone suspension front and rear.

Stainless steel muffler and header design provides superior power characteristics, exhaust sound and durability.

Tool-free air filter box for easy access and quick maintenance.

Light steering and a class-leading turning radius combine for increased comfort and incredible maneuverability—even in 4WD.

Large-diameter ventilated hydraulic front disc brakes deliver tremendous stopping power in a variety of conditions.

Steel cargo racks with special, extra-durable wrinkle paint finish.

Water-resistant, large-capacity underseat storage box provides added convenience.

Wide, fully integrated floorboards keep rider's feet dry and feature serrated footpegs for extra grip in wet conditions.

Large front and rear fenders with inner guards offer excellent mud/splash protection.

Easy-access, underseat marine-spec electrical components ensure maximum protection from the elements.

Dual, bright multi-reflector 30-watt Krypton bulb headlights with high and low beams; rear brake light.

2012 Yamaha Rhino 700 FI Auto 4x4 Sport Edition Deluxe Review

Top of the line side by side with a cool custom look...

The 2012 Rhino sets the standard for versatility, value and reliable performance. Everything you need for off road work or play, including a 181kg cargo bed. The rugged 2012 Yamaha Rhino 700 FI: as capable as any ATV... and then some!

The Rhino 700 Sport Edition Deluxe is built on the same principles of its rugged 700FI brother, but with added style.

The one-piece cast aluminum wheels look great and reduce unsprung weight for even more performance. Fully adjustable piggyback shocks let you tailor the ride for load and conditions. Injection-moulded sun top provides shade, over fenders provide increased splash protection, a Baja-inspired front grab bar adds style and function, and bed rails provide convenient cargo tie-down points. And finishing off the look a yellowish metallic grey paint scheme with special graphics that stands out in any crowd.

The Rhino 700 FI Sport Edition comes with adjustable piggyback shocks, sun top, LED taillights, cast aluminum wheels and more.

One piece cast aluminum wheels, adjustable piggyback shocks, over fenders, Baja-inspired front carry bar, injected molded sun top and more make this truly the world's ultimate Rhino.

2012 Yamaha Rhino 700 FI Auto 4x4 Sport Edition Deluxe Highlights:
- Fuel injected 700 engine
- Custom "yellowish metallic grey" body finish
- Piggyback clicker shocks
- Over fenders

2012 Yamaha Rhino 700 FI Auto 4x4 Sport Edition Deluxe Key Features:

Straight design front and rear drive shafts provide more efficient power delivery and eliminate the need for "U" joints. The drive shafts exit on a straight line from the engine to the differentials
Servo-controlled "On-Command" system allows you to switch between various drive modes including 2WD, limited-slip 4WD and fully locked 4WD (both front & rear diff locked) - all with a turn of a convenient dash mounted knob. Yamaha's "On-Command" system puts you in total control... you decide which is the best drive mode for the terrain ... not the machine.
Dash mounted "On-Command" knob and indicator light lets you know what mode you are in.
Lightweight, compact front differential
Full square and round tube steel frame is rugged and durable.
Independent double "A" arm front and rear suspension provides excellent ride comfort
Adjustable heavy duty "piggy-back" shocks. Front shocks feature spring preload adjustability, 4-way compression and 4-way rebound damping adjustability. Rear shocks feature spring preload adjustability, 11-way compression and 18-way rebound damping adjustability.
Front and rear wheel travel is 185mm or 7.3"
Minimum ground clearance is 280mm or 11" for great terrainability
A single automotive-style brake pedal activates the front and rear hydraulic disc brakes. This 4 wheel disc brake system provides outstanding stopping performance in a variety of conditions. All four discs are tucked inside the rims to prevent damage from rocks, stumps etc.
Dual 200mm front and dual 185mm rear disc brakes squeezed by twin piston calipers provide excellent stopping power
Parking brake system utilizes a drive shaft mounted disc located inboard just behind the engine.
Convenient console mounted automatic-style parking brake lever with dash board warning light

Convenient single lever tilt design … makes dumping heavy loads easy
Four tie down points inside the bed for added load security
Convenient automotive "control" layout. Shifter, parking brake, gas and brake pedals and keyed ignition are just like on a car, for ease of use and familiarity
Light, responsive rack-and-pinion steering features a fully sealed steering column and double U-jointed steering linkage for smooth, easy operation.
Operator and passenger seat belts
Multiple grab handles for added passenger security on rough terrain
Rear brake lights
Rugged roto-moulded doors and hip supports / restraints on seat edges

Dash board mounted glove box and small item "cubby hole" in front section of console
Seat belt and helmet reminder lights on dash board
Convenient console mounted dual cup holders
Full length 3 piece high impact plastic skid plate protects the Rhino 700 from rocks, stumps, etc.
Smooth surface design of the skid plates allows the Rhino 700 to slide more easily over obstacles.
High impact plastic CV boot guards mounted to front & rear "A" arms help to reduce CV boot damage
Durable polyethylene CV boots for tear and weather resistance
Easy to read digital LCD instrument with speedometer, odometer, dual tripmeters and fuel gauge.
