2018 Yamaha Wolverine X4 EPS SE


Wolverine X4 EPS SE



All-new to the Yamaha lineup for 2018, the Wolverine X4 SE is redefining outdoor adventure. Through providing the industry's best combination of off-road capability, comfort and confidence to both driver and passenger, the Wolverine X4 SE will provide you and your family or friends with four times the fun wherever your adventure takes you.

Terrainability: Innovation is found throughout the Wolverine X4. New Sachs self-level with dual rate springs are fitted on the rear of the unit and provide consistent comfort and maintain wheel travel under load.

Power: The all-new Wolverine X4 comes with an all-new 847 cc in-line twin cylinder engine that provides smooth and seamless acceleration throughout the RPM range thanks to a new YCC-T Drive-by-Wire electronic throttle. This machine excels at conquering challenging terrain, rough obstacles and right trails due in part to its optimized low gearing.

Design: Roomy 4-person seating is offered through contoured high back bucket seats that offer an industry only 4-to-2-seat convertible bed. Superior versatility makes it easy for hauling additional passengers or gear without sacrificing class-leading terrainability.

Key Differences Between Wolverine X4 EPS & Wolverine X4 EPS Special Edition
  • Special Edition paint & graphics
  • colour matched seats & suspension springs
  • colour matched front bumper (mat silver & orange model only)
Engine Features
  • 4-valve, downdraft style combustion chamber with 10.5:1 compression ratio: 4-valve design maximizes flow into & out of combustion chamber; 31.5 mm intake & 26.5 mm exhaust valves; stainless steel valves feature an Isonite surface treatment & carburized tips for excellent durability & wear resistance
  • Rubber mounted, compact, 847 cc, liquid-cooled, SOHC, 4-valve, inline twin cylinder engine with Yamaha's Chip Controlled Throttle (YCC-T) provides lots of torque across the rev range with linear throttle response: compact engine design allows it to be placed in the centre of the chassis allowing a shorter wheelbase for excellent off road capabilities; engine is designed to provide smooth, quiet operation for maximum enjoyment; 4-point rubber engine mounts reduce vibration
  • Lightweight hollow camshafts: cam profiles are designed to accentuate torque & power throughout the rev range; automatic cam chain tensioner reduces both mechanical engine noise & maintenance
  • "Cross Plane Concept" 270 degree crankshaft: design reduces inertia torque while emphasizing linear torque; design has been optimized to achieve strong torque over a broad rpm range; CP Concept offers excellent "drive-ability" and linear throttle response
  • Lightweight gear driven balancer shaft: reduces engine vibration for excellent rider / passenger comfort; reduced vibration also improves engine durability
  • Forged connecting rods feature a "nut less" design: rods are heat treated for excellent durability
  • Lightweight, concaved forged aluminum short skirt pistons: design aids in fast engine response & reduced mechanical vibration; excellent durability
