    Powerful new 999 cc parallel twin engine

    The stunning power of the new 999 cc, DOHC, eight-valve, parallel twin-cylinder engine delivers class-leading, ultra-smooth performance across the power band – and with the red line at 8,500 rpm, aggressive and spirited riding is what this machine is all about. For complete peace of mind, our legendary durability and reliability is the hallmark of every Yamaha engine.

    Imposing and aggressive styling

    The Wolverine® RMAX™2 1000 blends next-level capability with an imposing appearance, thanks to its eye-catching colour, aggressive front-end design and rugged tyres. The all-new stealthy front LED headlights and "Evil Eye" marker lights add even more to its distinctive looks, while the LED taillight, brake light and reverse light provide added visibility.

    Advanced, comfort-focused suspension

    The all-new heavy-duty suspension is designed to provide a great handling blend: maximum articulation in low-speed situations – a balanced feel when trail riding – and maximum bottoming resistance with a higher-speed damping feel when manoeuvring aggressively. The wide-arc A-arms paired with easily adjustable FOX® shocks provide the perfect front and rear combination.

    Versatile cargo facilities

    The Wolverine® RMAX™2 1000 features a tilting cargo bed to simplify hauling duties. Built with hydraulic assistance and a robust latch system, the bed transports up to 272 kg with multiple steel tie-down points to secure cargo or attach accessories. Add in a full 907 kg of towing capacity through a standard two-inch receiver, and the Wolverine® RMAX™2 1000 is ready to get to work whenever you are.

    Tyres designed for the toughest terrain

    The chunky 14” aluminium wheels are shod with 30” GBC Dirt Commander two tyres arranged in a "square” set-up so you only need to carry a single spare. These special radial tyres are developed specifically for the Wolverine®RMAX™ 1000 to provide precise steering character and comfortable yet durable sidewall feel. The tread pattern design provides great traction, whatever the terrain.

    Wider door opening – and more comfort

    To make it easier to get in and out of the Wolverine® RMAX™ 1000 , the front doors now feature an enlarged opening – in fact, it’s 63% wider than previous Wolverine models. For even more comfort, the front shoulder bolsters have been re-designed to enlarge the space available for the upper body – so riders large and small can enjoy a more comfortable, secure feeling on the trail.

    Durability you can count on

    With its substantial component parts and solid build quality, this machine provides a truly confidence-inspiring ownership experience. As examples: Carbon steel front differential and rear gear case; large DAC (Double Angular Contact) wheel bearings; forged sway bar links; wide-pitch, single-stamped A-arms – the list goes on – and so will your all-terrain activities!

    Rugged Front Bumper

    The aggressively styled and rugged front bumper design isn’t all show and no substance! Along with its striking looks come two welded steel trailering and tie-down points and an integrated winch plate. An add-on brush guard and pod-light mounting brackets are also available as accessories.
