The new Wolverine is a price-point explorer with all the components of the R-Spec, except for its non-adjustable KYB high-pressure gas shocks with smaller bodies and low-back seats for more casual trail
riding. Also, it doesn’t come stock with a roof, tailgate or over-fenders (all are options).
Along with the DOHC, 708cc EFI engine from the R-Spec, the 2016 Grizzly
gets stronger drive shafts and CV joints, new CVT tuning for the new
26-inch tires, steel gears and forged hubs, a larger-capacity air filter, box
and boot, and high-engine and CVT ducts.
to actuate it. The Kodiaks also have a
narrower stance with shorter A-arms
and KYB HPG shocks.
The Kodiak EPS gets the new Grizzly
digital gauge, third high-beam headlight
and pod, and EPS unit with speed- and
torque-sensitive variable assist. It also
gets five-way preload adjustments on
the shocks, which are tuned like the old
Grizzly 550s for damping and spring
rates. MSRP is $8199, and the EPS
also has a 2-inch receiver hitch.
The Kodiak EPS Special Edition
is $8899 with Carbon Metallic paint,
blacked-out aluminum wheels and but-ton-activated, on-command diff-lock.
Like the Grizzly 700, the Kodiak comes
in red, Hunter Green or Realtree Xtra
Camo wrap, while only the EPS is available in Steel Blue, and the EPS SE has
Carbon Metallic paint.
