Yamaha Launches “Assembled in USA” Grizzly 700 EPS ATV Sweepstakes

 

The Grizzly 700 (MSRP $9,749) is Yamaha’s flagship ATV with top-of-the-line features like Electric Power Steering (EPS), fuel injection, Ultramatic® automatic transmission, On-Command® push-button four-wheel-drive, four wheel independent suspension and much more, making it the toughest, most off-road capable ATV in its class.



The Yamaha Grizzly that will be given away at the end of the sweepstakes is Steel Blue with cast aluminum wheels and has a unique red, white and blue “U.S.A.” themed graphic kit.  It was one of the first Grizzly 700 ATVs to come off Yamaha’s production line in Newnan, Ga., this May – significant because it marks Yamaha’s long-term strategy to move the production of more ATV models to the U.S.

“Yamaha is transferring the majority of its ATV production to the state-of-the-art Yamaha Motor Manufacturing Corp. of America facility in Georgia over the next three years,” said Steve Nessl, Yamaha’s ATV and SxS group marketing manager.  “All of our 4x4 ATV and Side-by-Side vehicles are now assembled right here in the U.S.A., and Yamaha is proud to give away one of the first Grizzly 700 ATVs off the Newnan production line to raise money for two worthy charitable organizations.”

Yamaha is a founding sponsor of HAVA (www.honoredveterans.org), an organization created to help disabled soldiers and veterans with the healing process through active participation in outdoors sports.  Yamaha has worked with Feed the Children (www.feedthechildren.org) for more than 10 years raising several hundred thousand dollars and feeding tens of thousands of children.  Yamaha will donate all money it raises through the raffle evenly between the two organizations.
