STUNNING INDUSTRY-FIRST THREE-CYLINDER ENGINE
Designed to bring a Pure Sport riding character like nothing else in the Side-by-Side world, the YXZ1000R SS XT-R engine was built to deliver high-revving power with the flexibility and character that only an inline triple can provide. With a compact, counterbalanced, DOHC cylinder head, a 11.3:1 compression ratio and dry-sump lubrication, the YXZ1000R SS XT-R engine offers exceptional power, a thrilling 10,500 rpm redline and high-strength internals ready to handle high-output demands.
YAMAHA PADDLE SHIFT
Nothing in the Side-by-Side world can match the feeling of banging through the gears using the YXZ1000R SS XT-R's Sport Shift, a sequential five-speed manual transmission featuring Yamaha Chip Controlled Shift (YCC-S) technology. This system combines the power, durability and efficiency of a traditional manual transmission with an advanced automatic clutch system controlled with sporty paddle shifters mounted to the steering column. Sport Shift offers a high-tech riding experience that anyone can enjoy, with rapid and precise gear selection literally at your fingertips. And optimised gearing gives the YXZ1000R SS XT-R even more flexibility to handle nearly any type of trail, from wide-open desert trails to first-gear crawling.
SMART COOLING SYSTEM
To ensure peak performance every ride, the YXZ1000R SS XT-R features a vented, rear-mounted radiator. This system not only reduces heat in the cabin, but it remains clear of mud or debris build-up and is designed to funnel cool air through the radiator at low or high speeds equally well.
FOX® PODIUM X2 SHOCKS
The YXZ1000R SS XT-R features top-shelf FOX® 2.5 Podium® RC2 shocks with dual-spring-rate adjustable crossovers. All four corners are fully adjustable—spring preload, crossover adjustment, rebound and both high- and low-speed compression damping—with a huge 411mm of front travel and 432mm at the rear along with exceptional ride quality, tuneability and handling.
The YXZ1000R SS XT-R features instruments inspired by Yamaha's high-performance supersport motorcycles. Functions include a digital speedometer, analog tachometer, programmable shift light, and readouts for 4WD mode, gear position, fuel level, trip meters, hour meter, coolant temperature warning and a clock.
AGGRESSIVE LED LIGHTING
Four super bright and long-lasting LED headlights provide brilliant forward illumination and give the YXZ1000R SS XT-R a sinister sense of style. Includes a bright LED taillight for extra visibility, while the XT-R package provides even more light thanks to additional centre-mounted auxiliary lights.
WARN WINCH PACKAGE
To ensure you can get out of even the toughest spots when far away from civilisation, the YXZ1000R SS XT-R features a WARN® VRX 4500 winch package mounted via a new custom front grab bar. Since the winch package was engineered alongside the XT-R, the winch's controls are integrated into the electrical system, putting the controls right where the driver needs them.
EXCLUSIVE XT-R TYRE PACKAGE
The YXZ1000R SS XT-R mounts large ultra-aggressive 29-inch Maxxis® Carnage™ radial tyres that offer exceptional traction, durability and steering precision in the most extreme off-road environments. As part of the XT-R package, the beefy tyre tread is mounted on ultra-durable beadlock rims ready for the toughest terrain conditions.
SLIM LONG-RANGE FUEL TANK
Throughout the development of this new generation adventure bike, Yamaha's key goal was to deliver class leading off road performance together with outstanding road abilities and offer a genuine long-range potential. The slim design of the fuel tank belies its 16-litre capacity, and its narrow rear section offers plenty of rider mobility and excellent knee grip. Whether you're sitting down or standing up, the compact dimensions of this long-range fuel tank enable you to shift your weight around effortlessly – and thanks to the excellent economy of the 2-cylinder engine, 16-litres of fuel will give a potential riding range of over 350km which gives the Ténéré 700 a high level of year-round all-terrain versatility.
