    High-performance 3-cylinder engine

    The 998cc DOHC engine is an ultra-compact 3-cylinder, 12-valve layout, delivering breathtaking acceleration all the way up to its thrilling 10,500 rpm red line – in fact, it creates a whole new class on the SxS scene. What’s more, the heat-treated conrods are designed to take further race-tuning – whenever you’re ready for even more power!

    Rear-mounted radiator

    For this advanced design, the radiator was moved from the front of the vehicle to high up on the rear cargo area to avoid mud clogging. The twin hi-volume radiator fans provide a massive airflow to keep engine temperature under control in all conditions.

    Clutchless Sport Shift system

    The Sport Shift system is similar to the design used on rally and race cars, and features paddles on either side of the steering column. The refined and recalibrated electronics mean you can shift very rapidly through the 5-speed gearbox using only your fingertips!

    Yamaha Chip Controlled Shift (YCC-S)

    The intelligent Yamaha Chip Controlled Shift (YCC-S) is the key to the Sport Shift system. The sophisticated YCC-S monitors a series of sensors and instantaneously disengages and engages the clutch when required, for seamless deceleration and acceleration. Clutch shifting and engagement is also faster at lower speed, which improves crawling performance.

    Launch-control system

    Our awesome launch-control system allows you to accelerate very rapidly from a standstill and power through the 5-speed transmission at full throttle where conditions permit. Initiated by pulling back both paddles simultaneously while pressing the foot brake, this YCC-S-controlled system sets you free when you release the brake and paddles.

    Stylish body and ROPS design

    The front hood design incorporates a special mounting space for the installation of night-riding LED lights and despite the dominant radiator location, we’ve found room for a small cargo area at the rear. The ROPS has a straight top bar which not only looks sleeker, but also improves forward visibility when climbing. The extra cross bar at the rear adds to the overall structural strength.

    29" Big Horn Tires and FOX® Podium Shocks

    The 29" 8 ply Big Horn tyres - mounted on 14" aluminium wheels - are more durable, increase ground clearance and are ready to tackle any terrain. The FOX® Podium 2.5 shocks are recalibrated to match.
