Of paramount importance for Yamaha engineers in the design of the Kodiak 450 ATV was bringing to market a mid-sized ATV that would accommodate small, medium and large riders, bring immediate confidence to the novice ATV enthusiast, and meet the expectations of the seasoned ATV rider.
In an ATV market that touts ever-larger side-by-side vehicles capable of hauling four humans and untold pounds of gear and game, many hunters still choose to use a four-wheeler. A four-wheeler is, after all, cheaper than a SxS. It is also easier to maneuver in tight spots, rides in a pickup bed and sits nicely in the back of a garage. Yamaha considered all this when it designed the 2019 Kodiak 450.
