Yamaha’s long experience and knowledge of creating machines with a wide range of capabilities has influenced our development teams to create a striking new Special Edition model of our next-generation off-road adventurer. #DRIVENBYFREEDOM – this brand new SxS knows how to deliver and surprise to the max.

Powerful new 999 cc parallel twin engine

Features 1

The stunning power of the new 999 cc, DOHC, eight-valve, parallel twin-cylinder engine delivers class-leading, ultrasmooth performance across the power band – and with the red line at 8,500 rpm, aggressive and spirited riding is what this machine is all about. For complete peace of mind, our legendary durability and reliability is the hallmark of every Yamaha engine.

Imposing and aggressive SE styling

Features 2

The unique character of this SE model shines through, blending next-level capability with an imposing appearance, thanks to its special colour scheme, aggressive front-end design and rugged tyres. The stealthy front LED headlights and "evil eye" marker lights add more to its distinctive looks, while the LED tail, brake and reverse lights provide excellent visibility.

Advanced, comfort-focused suspension

Features 3

The all-new heavy-duty suspension is designed to provide a great handling blend: maximum articulation in low-speed situations – a balanced feel when trail riding – and maximum bottoming resistance with a higher-speed damping feel when manoeuvring aggressively. The wide-arc A-arms paired with easily adjustable front and rear FOX shocks help create this ideal setup.

Three drive modes, one ultraversatile machine

Features 4

Yamaha’s Chip Controlled Throttle (YCC-T) works with our Ultramatic® transmission and On-Command systems to give perfect power delivery in any situation, via its new three-position D-Mode (Drive Mode) control. Choose Sports Mode for wide spaces and spirited driving, Trail Mode for a fun, relaxed ride or Crawl Mode for slow-speed technical tasks like rock crawling.

Stylish and helpful interior lighting

Features 5

Driving in low light conditions is a real pleasure in the all-new Special Edition model, which features a sophisticated interior package with floor and console lighting, easy-to-locate blue LED-lit switch controls and instruments that are also back-lit in blue. This premium-level design approach adds to the attractive ambience of the automotive-quality cockpit.

Born to tackle extreme terrain

Features 6

Many special features deliver this machine’s incredible all-terrain ability - the three-position D-Mode control and our Ultramatic® and On-Command systems give the perfect balance of engine braking and power delivery, the frame is strengthened for a solid and durable feel – and the chassis is matched to the high-spec suspension, so together they provide maximum rigidity.
