I'm excited to see what is coming, but I'm also very happy with what I have. I'm hoping to get a ride in tomorrow (that's a very rare occurrence)!!!

All of a sudden Yamaha releases a 1000 with a bigger Ultramatic transmission. Craigslist would start seeing a lot more 700’s!

Just another dream...

Does anyone know if Yamaha will be live streaming the announcement(s) like I've seen Apple, Samsung, and Microsoft do? Or will they just publish the new product(s) on YamahaOutdoors.com?

Yup! The new wheels and tires do look nice though! It's very interesting that the SE will come with 14" wheels and 27" Zillas! I was VERY tempted to go with 14" wheels myself on my 2017. But, from my research, most people liked 12" wheels on ATVs for better ride quality. I wonder how it will ride...

Back to work I go....

The only good (for some) things I saw were the 14” wheels and the lower gearing on the YXZ.

I love those YXZs.

I think Yamaha hits homerun on their 2019 Grizz 700 SE. nice color, the tires are not too aggressive like the ones on Can Am XMR. it will sell like hot cakes, I am still viewing videos , the blue color seems to change. its almost like it got a hint of purple color.

Will be interesting to see how the 2019 does. When comparing it to the 2018 just a few differences to note:
1) 1/2 inch better ground clearance.
2) 2019 is 68 lbs heavier than the 2018.
3) 2019 turning radius is about 8 inches wider so not as nimble per se.
4) 2019 686 SOHC 4 stroke vs 2018 708cc DOHC 4 stroke that claimed it had 9% more torque and 6% more power than the original 686.

The 2018 is actually 88 lbs. heavier than the 2018 (780 - 692). That's a lot of extra weight! :frown2:
