New Grizz by 2014???

Alright guys, last year this time we were all hoping that 2012 would be the year that Yamaha re designed the Grizzly......that didn't happen. Instead they made a few minor changes here and there but still the same quad. These changes will probably carry over to next year as well but hopefully by 2014 they will have an all new package.....hopefully a V twin. Anyone else agree with this prediction?

I would say by 2014 you will see one forsure. I actually think we will see a new machine for 2013.

For many people (including myself), not a thing. However, with all the other manufacters making big V-twins, I think Yamaha will feel they are missing out on a potential market.

It would be nice to keep making the current 700 for the people who like that kind of set up but make something bigger for the people who want arm pulling power. I bought the new Brute force last fall and love the power (reason for buying) but have already run into some reliability issues (nothing major). With that being said I miss my old Grizz.....

I am happy with the 550/700 set up now, with the exception of some very very minor things eg. push rivets, not as beefy as I would like foot rests. As I see it, they have been improving the 550/700 by rectifying past concerns. If they come out with a v twin, there will no doubt be new issues which will take a few years to correct. But then, maybe not. I just wouldn't want to be the first to jump in on anything new and untested.

By the time Yamaha comes out with a V Twin our 700's will be like Honda 300's and then we will be on every forum in the world asking "can my 700 turn whatever size tire" like Honda guys are doing now. I'm happy with my Single but hey 15 years ago people were happy with a 250 or 300cc engine. Times are changing and I don't want to see Yamaha being in the same class as Honda, what I mean by that statement is,,,, even though what they have works and is proven, the Company is still old news. Nothing new same ol same ol and then when they do hype up a change it's something like a new oil cover and textured plastics, Please.

I sure hope for all you guys that can afford to upgrade every couple years they do make a new grizzly. I can't afford to buy a new one so my 700 will have to do for many more years.

I took one of the clamps off my exhaust heat shield and turned my 2009 into a 2012, seems to be faster now too. Can't wait to see what major improvements are slated for next years model release!!

Just love how you worded your post. Thanks for making me laugh today.

Even though I am happy with what I have I couldn't agree with you more. But your honda comment is....well.......
