In 1987, Yamaha introduced its first 4×4 ATV – the Big Bear 350. It featured a 350cc 4-stroke engine with an oil cooler, Hi-Lo Range 10-speed transmission with reverse, shaft drive, Torque Control Differential (TCD) for the front wheels, electric start, front hydraulic brakes and an auxiliary DC terminal for accessories.
The Terrapro has a unique place in ATV history as the first and only ATV with Power Take Off (PTO) capabilities. This feature enabled the use of a wide range of powered ttachments (rough-cut mower, finish-cut mower, tiller, agricultural sprayers, post-hole digger and more). The Terrapro had a fan cooled 350cc 4-stroke engine, Hi-Lo Range 10-speed transmission with reverse and a locking rear differential.

It debuted in 1989 and featured a powerful 195cc 2-stroke engine, Autolube oil injection, 6-speed transmission, kick starter and double-wishbone front suspension.

The Grizzly 600 brought a new standard of performance, comfort and ease of use to the Utility ATV market with its high torque 595cc engine (the largest engine ever placed in a utility ATV, at the time) and revolutionary Ultramatic transmission. Among the “firsts” on the Grizzly 600 were automatic engine compression braking and push button On Command 2WD/4WD selection.
The BearTracker was the first Yamaha ATV built in the U.S. at the Newnan, GA facility. Rugged, reliable and versatile, the BearTracker quickly won the hearts of thousands of owners with its class leading value.
Big Bear 400
Yamaha introduced its first fully camouflaged bodywork on the Big Bear 400 4×4 Buckmaster® Edition. Blending in was easier than ever with this model designed especially for hunters.
Yamaha created a new benchmark for sport ATVs when it introduced the 660R Raptor. It utilized the largest engine to ever be placed in a sport ATV with the first 5-valve cylinder head in ATV history. The outstanding engine along with its YZ-spec, 5-speed manual transmission, state-of-the-art chassis and race-honed suspension helped the Raptor win the title of Sport ATV of the Year.
The 2002 Grizzly 660 raised the bar for Utility 4×4 ATV performance and convenience by sporting the first Push Button Front Differential Lock feature. The Grizzly also featured liquid-cooling and the first Yamaha Independent Rear Suspension system.
The recipient of virtually every accolade, award and race championship, this revolutionary model set the standard for pure sport ATVs, enabling a buyer to go from the dealership to the race track and be competitive. Its powerful, five-titanium-valve engine and 350-pound dry weight gave the YFZ450 the best power-to-weight ratio of any ATV ever produced. An ultra-compact, high-tensile steel frame offered exceptional handling. Standard on the YFZ450: pushbutton electric starting, a flip-type parking brake and performance-calibrated suspension served to further distance this model from the competition.
A 686cc Yamaha engine helps make this the most powerful sport ATV ever, with big torque right off idle transitioning into a fat midrange and monstrous top end. As the first fuel injected Sport ATV, the Raptor 700R provides crisp, consistent engine performance in a wide range of conditions, regardless of elevation or temperature. And the model’s first-of-its-kind steel and aluminum hybrid frame – with aluminum subframe and cast swingarm – means the Raptor 700R boasts a class-leading chassis and is the lightest ATV in its class.

Aclaro por qué se empezó con trikes y después se hicieron de 4 ruedas: “El problema llegó, como suele ser habitual en temas de automoción, cuando la teoría es buena pero la práctica no tanto. Los trikes eran inestables e imprevisibles en sus reacciones, hasta el punto de que fueron prohibidos en EEUU, y los quads sustituyeron su puesto en el mercado.”
I've seen things you people wouldn't believe.
Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion.
I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate.
All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. (Blade Runner)
