HIgh-Torque 686cc Engine

2019 Yamaha YXM700 EU Red Detail 001 03 Tablet

The high-torque 686cc single-cylinder engine produces plenty of controllable power for effective off road transpotation. For added confidence on slippery downhill slopes the ultramatice (r) transmission features an engine braking function - while the 2WD, 4WD and Diff Lock modes can be quickly selected to suit different surface conditions.

Electronic Power Steering (EPS)

2019 Yamaha YXM700 EU Red Detail 002 03 Tablet

Even with 3 passengers and a full cargo load on board, the Electronic Power Steering (EPS) ensures that the steering feels light even when fully laden or when driving in heavy soils like clay. When 4WD with Diff Lock is selected the EPS switches automatically to a second programme designed to optimize the steering characteristics. 

Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI)

2019 Yamaha YXM700 EU Red Detail 003 03 Tablet

The reliable 686cc 4-stroke single-cylinder engine features an advanced Electronic Fuel Injection system that ensures efficient combustion for good throttle response. Together with the forged piston and pent roof combustion chamber design, the EFI enables the Viking engine to produce gutsy torque at low rpm with strong high rpm performance.

3 Mode On-Command(r) System

2019 Yamaha YXM700 EU Red Detail 004 03 Tablet

The Viking is designed to be used on a wide variety of surfaces, and the 3-mode On-Command(r) system offers 2WD, 4WD or 4WD with Diff Lock options to suit different terrain and weather conditions. The simple rotary-type switch enables the driver to select their chosen drive mode in seconds.

Conveniently positioned controls

2019 Yamaha YXM700 EU Red Detail 005 03 Tablet

For easy operation the Viking is equipped with a central instrument console, while the electric starter switch, shift lever and handbrake are located to the right of the 4-spoke steering wheel. And for added comfort and safety there's a foot space partition to prevent the central passenger's feet from interfering with the driver's feet.

Front and rear double wishbone suspension

2019 Yamaha YXM700 EU Red Detail 006 03 Tablet

For responsive handling combined with a comfortable ride for all 3 people on board, the Viking is equipped with independent double wishbone suspension at the front and rear. This rugged system allows each wheel to follow the terrain and maintain traction on extremely rough ground, allowing you to traverse extreme landscapes. 

3-seater / Walk-through floor

2019 Yamaha YXM700 EU Red Detail 007 03 Tablet

The low noise cabin features an innovative 3-seat layout with a central seat inclined 5 degrees further back than the other seats, giving each passenger more arm and shoulder room. There's also a flat walk-through floor that gives easy access and allowa the driver to step in from either side.

Easy Maintenance

2019 Yamaha YXM700 EU Red Detail 008 03 Tablet

The Viking has been designed to be robust and easy to maintain, and the location of the engine beneath the cargo bed makes it possible to gain access to the powerplant in seconds.
