With its compact chassis, confidence-inspiring car-type 2-seat cabin and high-torque engine, the Wolverine-R is engineered to traverse some of the most extreme terrain out there.
Equipped with user-friendly fully automatic transmission - as well as switchable 2WD and 4WD modes and Electronic Power Steering (EPS) - the Wolverine-R is ready for you. So, go explore!
This is no ordinary off-roader. With its spacious 2-person cabin and high-back bucket seats with 3-point seat belts and shoulder bolsters, you'll feel comfortable and secure. With a centrally mounted gear selector and handbrake, everything is where you expect it - while the rugged tubular cage and sun top help protect you from the elements.
Durable cargo bed
Manufactured from lightweight polypropylene, the flat cargo bed is designed to carry up to 136kg of gear or provisions. Six tie-down points allow you to secure the load with straps, and the multi-position tailgate can be located to suit your needs. And when you need to access the engine for routine maintenance, the whole cargo bed can be quickly removed.
Rugged, aggressive design
With its tough front-end design and compact chassis, this extreme off-roader brings an aggressive look to the off-road world. Featuring a short wheelbase and narrow chassis, the nimble 2-seat Wolverine-R comes with rugged good looks that complement its class-leading off-road performance.
This 4x4 is so special that Maxxis have developed another version of their Bighorn tyres exclusively for it! Designed to deliver optimum traction and durability together with high levels of comfort and steering precision, the bias construction 26x8x12 front and 26x10x12 rear tyres complement the advanced new suspension for class-leading off-road performance.
708cc DOHC engine
The 708cc engine produces optimised torque and power delivery for exciting recreational riding. Featuring an efficient DOHC, 4-valve cylinder head, this gutsy 4-stroke single transmits its power via Yamaha’s Ultramatic® fully automatic CVT transmission system which ensures smooth and seamless acceleration together with stable engine braking.
The Yamaha On-command® system enables the driver to select 2WD, 4WD or 4WD with diff lock simply by turning a dial located on the dashboard. Together with the option of high and low gear ratios - as well as reverse - this proven industry-leading drive system enables Yamaha's rugged Wolverine-R to get into and out of technical and extreme terrain.
Fully adjustable suspension
To underline its class-leading off-road performance over extreme terrain, the Wolverine-R is equipped with a high performance suspension package. The long travel KYB piggyback shocks give 246mm front wheel travel and 269mm rear wheel travel - and can be adjusted for high and low speed compression damping, rebound damping and spring preload.
Special Edition / R Spec models
The Wolverine-R EPS Special Edition comes with a Matt Silver painted body and black painted hood. Other exclusive SE features include matt black overfenders as well as an ergonomic YXZ steering wheel, silver seats and yellow suspension springs. And the new Racing Blue and Alpine White R Spec models feature cast aluminium wheels as standard.
