For the 2020 model year, Yamaha has updated the Kodiak 450, with the utility quad getting a higher standard specification and more capability.
The new, factory-fitted Warn VRx25 winch is more powerful than before by 25%, now possessing the power to pull 1,134kg. Not only is it more powerful, but the assembly also features a mechanical brake to give better control when dragging heavy loads. With the 15-metres of steel rope the winch is a very useful addition to the Kodiak 450 indeed.
For 2020 the model is also available in a new Olive Green colour and will feature the same spacious ride space, the 421cc punchy engine, long travel suspension and On Command button switchable 4WD system.
The Kodiak 450 EPS and ESP SE models have also been mildly refreshed, with the SE gaining deluxe paint and polished aluminium wheels, whilst both models too get the uprated winch and the On Command 4WD system which they didn’t before – and a locking diff.
The new Olive Green paint is also available on the EPS range, and the 120kg rack capacity and 600kg towing capacity are shared right across the range, just like the CVT transmission.
