New Handlebar Bend

The handlebars on the Kodiak are lower and swoop farther back then the Grizzly. Yamaha says the Kodiak has a compact rider position...

closest I could find for a Top view of the Grizzley. Difficult to see in the different styles of pictures.

I found this one picture of the Grizz from the top but its bad angle and sized differently to give a truely accurate look IMO...

Most random photos of them will be like that. How it was originally described was this difference broken down at its best, aside from in person which is where you can clearly really get a greater sense and feel.

Kodiak seems more relaxed, whereas the Grizz bars, while not overly sporty are certainly designed for enthusiastic riding instead of creeping, working and hunting...

Well yeah, it's built for the work site and has to be like that, even the ergo's were made to be easily worked with for just about anyone unlike the grizzly

Indeed. From what I've read the ergos on the Kodiak allow you to sit 'in' it instead of on it... the seat is a little lower and the bars sweep back more relaxed. Like a Harley

Correct.

With the pictures attached below, it makes it even easier to see that, just have to imagine yourself on it:




and can't forget a close up of the seat, which sure looks comfortable to sit on:
