Yamaha Motor Corp., U.S.A., is rounding out
its utility ATV line with the addition of 2013
red utility ATVs produced at its Newnan,

versions of Yamaha’s popular utility ATV models
should start arriving at dealers before the end
of the year and include the Grizzly 700 FI EPS,
Grizzly 550 FI EPS and Grizzly 450 EPS.
“Yamaha has strong demand from a variety of
customer groups – including farmers and
recreational users alike – for the red utility
models, and we’ve seen our dealer partners ask
for them this fall,” said Steve Nessl, Yamaha
ATV/SxS group marketing manager. “All of
Yamaha’s 4x4 ATVs now come from its U.S.
manufacturing facility in Georgia, which allows
the company to respond more quickly to customer
demands while also streamlining distribution.
It’s exciting to see that process in place.”
