Electronic Fuel Injected (EFI)
The triple 41mm diameter throttle bodies feed the engine through 4-hole fuel injectors. The instant throttle reponse provides immediate power when you want it, adding excitement to the ride.
High-performance 3-cylinder engine
Designed and engineered as a pure-sports off-road vehicle, the YXZ1000R introduces a new level of supersport-class engine performance. With an ultra-compact 3-cylinder layout, the 998cc DOHC engine delivers breathtaking acceleration up to its thrilling 10,500 rpm red line, creating a whole new class in the SxS world.
5-speed sequential gearbox
The 5-speed manual gearbox with reverse complements the high-performance character of the engine. The rally-style sequential shift enables ultra-fast gear shifting for awesome acceleration, allowing you to use the power and torque where you want and when - and the durable drivetrain gets power to the wheels with minimal transmission loss.
Pure sports chassis
The light and compact tubular purpose-built steel chassis is constructed using optimized dimensions to ensure class leading handling performance and outstanding durability. An overhead protection system with sun top is fitted as standard, and its tubular structure offers high levels of security with good visibility for the driver and passenger.
Featuring a shark-like nose with massive Fox Podium RC2 shocks jutting through the hood as well as a low front end and a high tail, the bodywork gives an aggressive and predatory look. The low front also gives you and your passenger an excellent view on the terrain in front of the machine to see and go where you want for the ultimate off-road experience.
The Fox 2.5” Podium RC2 piggyback shocks give a huge 406mm of front wheel travel with a massive 432mm rear wheel travel for class-leading ride quality and handling performance. Fully adjustable for spring preload, rebound and high/low speed compression damping, this system can be dialed in to handle virtually any situation.
27-inch tyres on 14-inch alloy rims
Aggressively styled 12-spoke lightweight aluminium wheels are fitted with Yamaha-exclusive 27-inch Bighorn 2.0 radial tyres that offer extreme performance with increased ground clearance. Together with the 4-wheel 245mm disc brakes and 2-piston calipers, the YXZ delivers a high level of traction with outstanding braking performance.
The YXZ1000R SE Special Edition model comes with a Painted Satin Black body colour with dark grey and red body graphics – as well as a colour matched red frame, grab bar, suspension springs and wheel bead lock plates. Equipped with exclusive fully adjustable FOX Podium X2 Internal Bypass Shocks, the SE model gives superior controllability and traction.
