Rising above the other 2016 model year utility ATVs, the Kodiak 700 was crowned ATV.Com’s “Utility ATV Of The Year” for 2015.
ATV.Com’s editor compared it to other 2016 utility vehicles like the; Honda FourTrax Foreman, Can-Am Outlander 850 XT, and the Can-Am OutlanderMAX 850 XT. In the end they still picked this impressive ATV after taking it for a ride into the mountains of Tennessee. What’s also interesting is that the users themselves gave the Kodiak 700 a perfect rating while nobody took the time to do so for the 2016 Grizzly. Says a lot about model inspired loyalty.
So why was the Kodiak 700 picked?
One reason is the ergonomics. That seat is actually a little slimmer in the middle to make the ATV easier to handle and with this smaller seat, getting on and off the Kodiak won’t be a problem. This makes up for the lower slung handlebars that are a tad uncomfortable for those of you who are tall and like to stand on their ATVs.
It wasn’t just the seating position that brought the award home, the Kodiak 700 was just a great combination of value, reliability and performance. For a lot less than its competition, you’ll get an affordable, durable and hardworking utility ATV that can handle and rock filled or rutted trail you can throw at it.
Maybe those who are still deciding on which utility ATV to get will choose the Kodiak 700 instead of a Can-Am or a Honda.
