The engine features a 10.1:1 compression ratio and the four-valve head delivers optimum torque for excellent responsiveness, even with heavy cargo loads.
High-Mounted Air Intake
A long, high-mounted air intake layout increases power and torque while providing additional room for center storage and easy “no tools” servicing of the large air filter element.
Mikuni® fuel injection with 44mm bore and throttle position sensor means easy cold starts and flawless fuel delivery in nearly any condition.
Stainless Steel Exhaust
Stainless steel exhaust system features a screen-type spark arrestor for great power with minimum noise output.
High-Capacity Radiator with Fan
High-capacity radiator with fan-assist delivers excellent air flow for maximum cooling efficiency and is positioned high in the frame for optimal protection.
Gated Shift Lever and Handlebar-Mounted 4WD Control
Yamaha’s peerless Ultramatic transmission runs through a five-position shift lever with High, Low, Neutral, Reverse and Park gates – for positive and precise transmission operation. Robust, mechanical 4WD system is selected using handlebar lever.
Drive System Air Intake
Specially designed high-mounted drive system air intake helps reduce drive system temperatures and assists in keeping water and debris from entering the drive case.
