Yamaha Chip Controlled Shift (YCC-S)


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 to give seamless de or acceleration. The changed, lower-gear ratio of the gearbox required a new calibration which resulted faster clutch shifting and clutch engagement at lower speed to improve crawling performance.

The 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.

Rear Mounted Radiator


The radiator moved from the front of the vehicle to rear cargo area to avoid mud clogging. The Hi Volume Twin radiator fans provide a massive airflow to control engine temperature under any circumstance.

The Sport Shift System is similar to the design usually used on rally and race cars, and features paddles on either side of the steering column. The refined and re-calibrated electronics let you shift now even more rapidly through the 5-speed gearbox using only your fingertips!
