Overview

Description

You found yourself here because you're an adrenaline junkie. You're looking for an adventure that will top the rest. The story that will one-up the last guy. The feeling you once felt, but have been striving to find again. Stop. It's here. You're welcome.



Terrainability: Electric Power Steering comes standard on all YXZ1000R models to provide easy steering of the 27" Maxxis tires . Fully adjustable FOX 2.5 Podium RC2 shocks provide incredible suspension performance offering 16" of travel out front and 17" in the rear.



Power: There is no shortage of power produced by the 998 cc, 3 cylinder, liquid-cooled engine. The sequential shift manual 5-speed transmission creates a whole new level of machine and driver connection.



Design: A full length skid plate, front and rear sway bars, LED tights and adjustable driver's seat are just a few of the features to make the YXZ1000R the most sport-oriented Side-by-Side offered.
