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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
