Clutchless Sport Shift system
The Sport Shift (SS) system is similar to the design used on rally and race cars, and features paddles on either side of the steering column. The left paddle controls down shifts, while the right paddle controls up shifts, giving you the ability to power 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. Developed from the high tech design used on Yamaha’s Sport Touring motorcycles, the sophisticated YCC-S monitors a series of sensors and instantaneously disengages and engages the clutch when required to give seamless acceleration.
Launch control system
The launch system (LS) allows you to accelerate from a standstill and power through the 5-speed transmission at full throttle where conditions permit. Initiated by pulling back both paddles simultaneously while holding the footbrake, this YCC-S controlled system can be launched by releasing the brake followed by both paddles.
Auto shift down and engine brake control
For added convenience this high performance SxS is equipped with an auto down shift control that selects a low gear when the vehicle comes to a stop, preventing stalling. And when coasting downhill with the throttle and brakes off, the engine brake control automatically modulates the clutch to keep the speed to around 10 km/h.
Fighter style ergonomic cockpit
The driver and passenger sit in a fighter style cockpit equipped with bucket seats that add to the feeling of security. The ergonomic layout features all the controls close at hand, and there is a clear view through the sports steering wheel to the analogue tachometer and digital speedometer that feature an array of warning lights.
On-Command 2WD/4WD/Diff Lock selector
This pure sports SxS vehicle has been designed to conquer extreme terrain and get you places where few other vehicles dare to go. Situated in the central console, the On Command switches allow you to select from a choice of 2WD, 4WD or 4WD with Diff Lock, giving you the ability to choose the right mode to suit different landscapes.

To transmit its high levels of power more effectively to the surface, the YXZ1000R SS is equipped with 14-inch cast aluminium wheels featuring a lock plate that prevents the high-traction tyres from moving on the rim.
