Sporty and snappy, the new Yamaha YXZ 1000R side-by-side promises to be a game changer for Yamaha.

With a brand new design, Yamaha's newest addition to its side-by-side lineup is turning many heads in the powersports community. 

Although Yamaha isn’t officially releasing the horsepower output, this 998-cc inline triple, with a manual five-speed transmission, is extremely responsive, and fast according to test drivers.  Smooth riding with the massive Fox RC2 suspension and electronic power steering make handling even the most whooped-out terrain a breeze. 

Yamaha went the extra mile when it comes to rider comfort.  High-back seats with extra lateral support, extra leg room and a dash that tilts with the steering wheel mean more comfort and more fun!  This side-by-side is available in three colour options—racing blue and white, blaze orange and white and the special edition combination of yellow and white.
