Highland 2010: Yamaha offers base-spec Grizzly 550

The company reasoned there was now a need for an “entry-level” machine to provide a greater choice for purchasers. Significant as the price reduction clearly is, the basic specification of the 550 remains as before – single-cylinder 558cc engine driving through a two-speed V-belt automatic transmission.
