The Yamaha Viking is s latest entry into the SXS and was created to give the hard UTV enthusiast a well built, and functional machine that can truly What you will not see is a new Rhino, unfortunately for of us, the machine that started it all now be discontinued.

Yamaha has vowed to to service and make parts but no will we see a Yamaha Rhino be RIP Rhino, you were always to us

Right away we know many of you have skipped and scanned through our 100+ and have already all but shunned new machine. It doesn t have the Apex Turbo motor, it t have 20 of wheel travel, and its not in carbon fiber, BUT this is s first entry BACK the UTV market. So before you sport guys here on to type up your rants on why you are Yamaha hear us out and give the a chance.

Yamaha just the load of what has surely the darkest period in powersports the ATC debacle back in the 80 s. The lawsuits stemmed from ambulance down right nasty and their lawyers over the not only have changed our it almost ruined it! While Arctic Cat, Kawasaki, and enjoyed the freedom of development it was all done at the expense of Yamaha with hundreds, maybe of frivolous claims agains the

Now, I am not trying to knock the OEM s for moving forward and pushing the I am just trying to shape reasoning behind what has Yamaha so long to get back in the UTV These lawsuits all but stopped of new UTV s at Yamaha. I can promise you, had lawsuits not taken place, I am Yamaha would still be near the top of the food chain as it to UTV s in sport, recreation and utility. But as say, it is what it is.

While the continued to ride the wave of surrounding this new sport Yamaha helped kick Yamaha was left to defend and thus all but stop even about anything new.

that said, Yamaha isn t for any sympathy. Meeting with team, they couldn t be any excited about the brand, new Viking, and this industry in While 2007 seems eons ago, reality is, its a few years and so for Yamaha they primed and ready for a comeback the UTV market. The Viking is Yamaha s new entry in what we hope be many more.

Its target is the hard working utility who enjoys a good trail and hunt all while getting done with his/her What the Yamaha lacks in and suspension, they made up for in strength and ergonomics. They this isn t a XP900 or Maverick nope, their saving for later!

What the Viking is however, is a designed utility machine was created to go after the 66% of SXS utility Sure, the sport market is for us, but as a company looking to get back the game Yamaha made the choice to do so by first offering the segment of UTV users a machine to be about. At a glance its easy to see while the Viking still some of the Rhino s look and this machine is really different.

Its the industry s first 3 seat vehicle designed to large adults comfortably. The s have been designed for a CG making the Viking feel at speed and comfortable to drive longer distances. The center is set back as to keep shoulders bumping when having all 3 occupied.

Wheel base that of a Kawasaki T4 which in our is just perfect for all sorts of The dumping bed is large enough to put a size pallet in and with a 600 lb. you are able to get the big jobs done

Its with great excitement that we here at re-introduce Yamaha back the UTV game with the new Yamaha Embrace it, enjoy it, respect it, and for the new line of Yamaha UTV s that we can hope begin to flow off of s American assembly lines! right, we said American. has relocated their UTV assembly to the States giving them more control over and development!

Yamaha has made it clear, master plan is to introduce a new UTV year for the next 5 years! So we sit back and wait to get out and enjoy the out on the trails, we will also sit and patiently to see what else has up their sleeve for us in the near
