YXZ1000R SS/SE Buggy


Crazy for racing, 2.0 performance and fun

The original YXZ1000R changed the ROV scene forever. With its super-aggressive styling, high-performance engine and advanced chassis, it opened up the era of the pure sport SxS.

Now we’re taking off road performance to the next level with the YXZ1000R SS - the highest specification SxS ever! Its rally-style paddle shift system gives instant fingertip control for clutchless full throttle shifting. And with the latest YCC-S activated launch control system, nothing comes close to the YXZ1000R SS from a standing start.

Equipped with 14-inch cast aluminium beadlock wheels and long travel suspension, both the YXZ1000R SS and the SE are built to dominate the most extreme terrain.

Clutchless Sport Shift system

Clutchless Sport Shift systemThe Sport Shift (SS) system is similar to the design used on rally and race cars, and features paddles on either side of the steering column. The left paddle controls down shifts, while the right paddle controls up shifts, giving you the ability to power rapidly through the 5-speed gearbox using only your fingertips!

Yamaha Chip Controlled Shift (YCC-S)

Yamaha Chip Controlled Shift (YCC-S)The intelligent Yamaha Chip Controlled Shift (YCC-S) is the key to the Sport Shift system. Developed from the high tech design used on Yamaha’s Sport Touring motorcycles, the sophisticated YCC-S monitors a series of sensors and instantaneously disengages and engages the clutch when required to give seamless acceleration.

Launch control system

Launch control systemThe launch system (LS) allows you to accelerate from a standstill and power through the 5-speed transmission at full throttle where conditions permit. Initiated by pulling back both paddles simultaneously while holding the footbrake, this YCC-S controlled system can be launched by releasing the brake followed by both paddles.

Auto shift down and engine brake control

Auto shift down and engine brake controlFor added convenience this high performance SxS is equipped with an auto down shift control that selects a low gear when the vehicle comes to a stop, preventing stalling. And when coasting downhill with the throttle and brakes off, the engine brake control automatically modulates the clutch to keep the speed to around 10 km/h.

Fighter-style ergonomic cockpit

Fighter-style ergonomic cockpitThe driver and passenger sit in a fighter style cockpit equipped with bucket seats that add to the feeling of security. The ergonomic layout features all the controls close at hand, and there is a clear view through the sports steering wheel to the analogue tachometer and digital speedometer that feature an array of warning lights.

On-Command 2WD/4WD/Diff Lock selector

On-Command 2WD/4WD/Diff Lock selectorThis pure sports SxS vehicle has been designed to conquer extreme terrain and get you places where few other vehicles dare to go. Situated in the central console, the On Command switches allow you to select from a choice of 2WD, 4WD or 4WD with Diff Lock, giving you the ability to choose the right mode to suit different landscapes.
