Back in the summer of 2006, I was one of the first people in the world to ride the completely redesigned 2007 Yamaha Grizzly 700 FI Auto 4x4 EPS. I logged several hundred miles in the mountains of Montana aboard that Grizzly and instantly fell in love with it. At that point, Yamaha was the first manufacturer to successfully integrate electric power steering (EPS) into an ATV, and it elevated the Grizzly into a category all by itself. Over the next few years, the rest of the manufacturers eventually caught up, incorporating their own version of EPS. The 2012 Grizzly remains largely unchanged, with some small enhancements along the way. The biggest and most important difference between the '07 and '12 Yamaha Grizzly 700 FI Auto 4x4 EPS is the fact that all the new Grizzlies, and nearly all other Yamaha ATV's and Side-by-Sides, are now assembled right here in the US at Yamaha's Newnan, Ga. facility.
