High-performance 3-cylinder engine

Features 1

The 998cc DOHC engine is an ultracompact three-cylinder, 12-valve layout, delivering breathtaking acceleration all the way up to its thrilling 10,500 rpm red line – in fact, it creates a whole new class in the SxS world. What’s more, the heat-treated conrods are designed to take further race-tuning – whenever you’re ready for even more power!

Rear-mounted Radiator

Features 2

For this advanced ATV design, the radiator was moved from the front of the vehicle to high up on the rear cargo area to avoid mud clogging. The twin hi-volume radiator fans provide a massive air flow to keep engine temperature under control in all conditions.

Clutchless Sport Shift system

Features 3

The Sport Shift system is similar to the design used on rally and race cars, and features paddles on either side of the steering column. The refined and recalibrated electronics mean you can shift very rapidly through the five-speed gearbox using only your fingertips!

Yamaha Chip Controlled Shift (YCC-S)

Features 4

The intelligent Yamaha Chip Controlled Shift (YCC-S) is the key to the Sport Shift system. The sophisticated YCC-S monitors a series of sensors and instantaneously disengages and engages the clutch when required, for seamless deceleration and acceleration. Clutch shifting and engagement is also faster at lower speed, which improves crawling performance.

Fighter style ergonomic cockpit

Features 5

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

Stylish body and ROPS design

Features 6

The front bonnet design incorporates a special mounting space for the installation of night-riding LED lights and despite the dominant radiator location, we’ve found room for a small cargo area at the rear. The ROPS has a straight top bar, which not only looks sleeker, but also improves forward visibility when climbing. The extra cross bar at the rear adds to the overall structural strength.
