  • Class-Leading Power Steering Yamaha’s Electric Power Steering (EPS) provides the industry’s best balance of steering assist and positive feedback by adjusting to match terrain conditions in real time.
  • Compact Chassis For precise handling and a confidence-inspiring ride in a variety of terrain conditions, Yamaha built the Kodiak 450 EPS SE with a compact body design that is significantly less bulky than competitive models.
  • Front Disc Brakes and Sealed Wet Rear Brake Hydraulic front disc brakes serve up powerful and consistent feel and braking performance to add to rider confidence, while the sealed rear brake is protected from dirt, rocks and mud.
  • Heavy Duty Wheel and Tire Package The Kodiak 450 EPS SE upgrades the rolling stock for style and trail-proven durability. Rugged 25-inch tires feature an aggressive tread pattern and provide a balance of precise steering and optimized comfort to make the most of available traction, while strong yet light aluminum wheels will look great for years.
  • Ready to Tow and Haul Rugged, large-diameter steel cargo racks with durable wrinkle paint finish can pack a total of 264 pounds combined. A heavy-duty 2-inch receiver comes standard, so the Kodiak 450 EPS SE can tow up to 1,322 pounds.
  • Smooth Fuel-Injected Engine The torquey 421cc SOHC engine is designed to provide a balance of responsive power and smooth character for long riding days with minimal fatigue. Mikuni® fuel injection means easy cold starts and flawless fuel delivery in nearly any condition while liquid-cooling and a high-volume fan system ensure reliable, consistent performance for years to come.
  • Terrain-Tackling Ground Clearance The Kodiak 450 EPS SE offers 9.6 inches of ground clearance and full- length composite skid plates to deliver maximum underbelly protection for a wide variety of terrain.
  • Ultramatic® Transmission The Ultramatic® transmission is specifically tuned to provide lowered cruising rpm for smooth, quiet operation, and features a gated shifter with park, dual-range (Hi/Lo) drive and reverse gear. Even the position of the gated shifter was carefully considered, being moved forward to provide a roomier rider area.
  • Yamaha’s Exclusive On-Command® 4WD The On-Command® 4WD system on Kodiak 450 EPS SE lets you switch between 2WD, limited-slip 4WD and a fully locked differential 4WD with the simple push of a button, and an override button allows engine to reach maximum rpm in full differential lock mode. This driver-controlled system eliminates hesitation or slipping while waiting for computer-controlled systems to engage, a common drawback in some competitor models.


  • Advanced Lighting Kodiak 450 EPS SE owners also get added visibility and extra illumination courtesy of the additional halogen work light mounted on the handlebar.
  • Compact Body, Roomy Ergonomics The Kodiak 450 EPS SE offers a riding position with the same roomy feel as the larger Kodiak 700. With tall handlebars, a seat that is long and plush for improved rider comfort, and large textured floorboards, every aspect of the Kodiak 450 EPS SE was designed to bring class-leading levels of refinement to the middleweight 4x4 ATV segment.
  • Independent Front and Rear Suspension The independent double wishbone suspension offers an optimized vehicle stance, light steering and an improved feeling from the shocks across the entire range of travel. With 6.7 inches of front wheel travel and 7.4 inches at the rear, the Kodiak 450 EPS SE provides excellent rider comfort even in the roughest terrain.
  • Low-Effort Electric Power Steering Yamaha’s Electric Power Steering significantly reduces fatigue with predictable steering assistance that adapts to changing riding conditions for an exceptional feeling of control.
  • Rubber Engine Mounts The Kodiak 450 EPS SE features specifically developed rubber engine mounts that isolate vibrations from the engine bay and give the rider one of the smoothest rides ever offered in a utility ATV.
  • Storage and Power A standard 12V power port makes it easy to keep devices charged over the course of a long riding day. Under seat storage allows for securing added items during your ride.
  • Thorough Instruments A compact all-LCD instrument cluster gives the rider a clear display of speed, transmission status, fuel level and more—all in a modern and compact package.


  • 10-Year-Belt Warranty The Kodiak 450 EPS SE transmission uses its own cooling intake to maintain proper temperatures, an oversized belt to handle the torque of the large motor and Yamaha’s unique sprag clutch to maintain constant belt tension. The end result is a drivetrain built for years of trouble-free service that leaves the competition in the dust, and is backed by the industry's only 10-Year V-Belt Limited Warranty.
  • Aggressive and Durable Styling Styling cues are borrowed directly from Yamaha’s industry-leading range of big-bore ATVs, including the uniquely textured, injection-molded fenders which protect against rock and debris damage while remaining good looking season after season.
  • Built Real World Tough®, Assembled in the USA As with other Yamaha ATVs and Side-by-Sides, the Kodiak 450 EPS is assembled in the USA to meet Yamaha’s exacting standards for durability and reliability.
  • High-Mounted Air Intakes The Kodiak 450 EPS SE features high-mounted air intakes to ensure that water and debris can’t get into the drive system or engine air cleaner. These air channels provide plenty of cool, clean air for the engine and ensure that the V-belt remains cool in the toughest working conditions. A reusable foam air filter is accessible without tools for added convenience.
  • Marine-Grade Electrical System Yamaha ATVs feature marine-grade waterproof connectors for maximum weather-proofing, increased durability and improved serviceability.
  • Ready to Personalize A range of Yamaha Genuine Accessories were designed in concert with the Kodiak 450 EPS SE offering a variety of performance, convenience, protection and styling enhancements with factory-level fitment and functionality.
  • Simplified Servicing The Kodiak 450 EPS SE powertrain is designed to make service and maintenance as stress-free as possible. The airbox features tool-less access to the air filter element, the engine and differential feature convenient oil drain holes and vehicle electronics are located high on the chassis under the front center panel for easy access.
  • Special Edition Features The Kodiak 450 EPS SE further enhances rugged terrain capability and confidence with a factory-installed WARN® VRX 25 winch, boosting rider confidence in the toughest conditions.
  • Ultramatic® Durability Yamaha’s Ultramatic® system earns its place as the most reliable transmission in the market. An automatic centrifugal clutch maintains constant belt tension for reduced wear, and a sprag clutch provides Yamaha’s renowned all-wheel engine braking.
