Featuring a compact DOHC twelve-valve cylinder head, an aggressive 11.3:1 compression ratio and high-tech dry-sump lubrication, the YXZ1000R engine offers jaw-dropping power, fantastic midrange torque and a thrilling 10,500 rpm redline. With lightweight forged aluminum pistons and an engine counterbalancer, the motor is exceptionally smooth-running, too. Built for the pure sport side-by-side enthusiast, there’s nothing else like it.
The YXZ1000R utilizes a sequential 5-speed manual transmission with reverse that permits rapid and smooth shifting, ideally matched to the potent three-cylinder engine. A beefy hydraulically-actuated clutch system is operated by a foot pedal for light, consistent feel—delivering power up to 20% more efficiently than most automatic CVTs. With an amazingly direct connection between throttle and the drivetrain, this transmission gives the YXZ1000R an entirely new sports side-by-side experience that is unmatched by any other machine.
High capacity intake system features dual air filters—one oiled foam, one viscous paper—affording maximum airflow to the engine as well as durable filtration for the dirtiest riding environments. The re-usable foam filter features tool-free access for easy servicing, too.Chassis/Suspension
Radical styling shows off Yamaha’s passion for powersports. And form follows function, as the front suspension design permits an extremely low hood line for excellent trail visibility.
Rising defiantly through the front hood and defining the rear of the vehicle, the YXZ1000R’s FOX® 2.5 Podium® RC2 Shocks with huge piggyback reservoirs bring visual impact and unmatched performance. All four corners are fully adjustable—spring preload, rebound and both high- and low-speed compression damping—with a huge 16.2 inches of front travel and 17.0 inches at the rear for exceptional ride quality, tuneability and handling.
Rigid spherical-joint double A-arms suspension retains ideal castor angle and bump response throughout the entire travel range, for excellent cornering ability, light steering feel and straight line stability across the roughest terrain. Front and rear sway bars minimize body roll for flatter, more responsive cornering.Additional
Bring what you need thanks to a composite cargo bed with a 300-pound capacity and four steel tie-down points. A sealed compartment next to the cargo bed and glove box in the cab provide additional storage, as do passenger-side cup holders and a central storage tray in the dashboard.
The YXZ1000R comes standard with a composite suntop integrated into the ROPS structure. A pair of whip flag mounts are ready for customization options, too.
Four super bright and long-lasting LED headlights provide brilliant forward illumination and give the YXZ1000R a sinister sense of style, with a bright LED taillight for extra visibility.
