Cypress, Calif. – July 28, 2008 – Yamaha Motor Corporation, U.S.A., has released a new double-sided informational DVD featuring the company’s all-new 2009 model year Grizzly 550 FI and the best selling big bore utility ATV* – the Grizzly 700 FI.  The new DVD, which can be requested for free online at, provides a comprehensive overview of the new Grizzly 550 FI and the Grizzly 700 FI and delivers detailed head-to-head comparisons against competing models.

“The Grizzly 700 FI is the best selling big bore utility ATV*, and we fully expect the new 550 to come in and dominate the 500-600cc class,” said Steve Nessl, marketing manager for Yamaha’s ATV/SxS group.  “The Grizzly 550 FI is the best new utility ATV out this year and the DVD does a great job explaining our claims.  There’s also a lot of good information on the competing machines in these classes.  Anyone interested in purchasing a utility ATV should take a look at this DVD first.”
