Additional Features

  • ROOMY CAB: Class-leading legroom, and a tough, textured floor surface make it easy to find a comfortable position whether you’re driving or riding. A standard suntop offers additional protection from the elements.
  • COMFORT FOR THE ROUGHEST TRAILS: Three-point seat belts, shoulder bolsters and an adjustable passenger handhold add to the secure comfortable feeling. Tough, rotomolded doors help keep mud, water and dirt on the trail where they belong.
  • COMPLETE INSTRUMENTATION: Digital instrument panel boasts multifunction LCD display with speedometer, odometer, dual tripmeter, hour meter, 4WD status, transmission position, clock and fuel gauge.
  • EXTENSIVE STANDARD STORAGE: Two cup holders, two center console storage bins, a dash-mounted glove box and under-seat storage provide maximum space for storing items in the cab.
  • HIGH VOLUME FUEL TANK: Large, 9.7-gallon fuel tank allows for long rides.
  • ASSEMBLED IN THE USA: Proudly built Real World Tough™ and assembled in Newnan, GA, U.S.A.

Chassis / Suspension

  • AGGRESSIVE AND AGILE CHASSIS: The front and rear of the chassis—approach and departure angles—are tapered on the sides and bottom of the vehicle to reduce potential contact on tight trails and in rough terrain. With an 81 inch wheelbase and 11.4 inch of ground clearance the Wolverine R-Spec EPS SE is designed for best-in-class terrainability and the body design with the low hood gives drivers maximum visibility to navigate tight, technical trails and challenging terrain.
  • DURABLE CHASSIS PROTECTION: The Wolverine R-Spec EPS SE chassis is more compact than the Viking's, and is optimized to conquer tight, difficult terrain. The class-exclusive full underbody skidplates lets it glide over many obstacles that might hold others back—and those skidplates are swept up more than two inches on each side to maximize clearance at the wheels.
  • FULLY-ADJUSTABLE SUSPENSION: KYB® fully adjustable piggyback shocks with 9.7 inch of travel in the front and 10.6 inch of travel out back deliver excellent suspension and rider comfort when hitting the trails. Adjustable settings include high- and low-speed compression damping, rebound and preload adjustments.
  • OFF-ROAD READY CHASSIS: Front wide-arc A-arms and full-length skid plates maximize durability and terrainability and provides 11.4 inch of ground clearance. Flares on the frame protect the rear wheels from oncoming trees and rocks.
  • HIGH-PERFORMANCE TIRES: Exclusive 26-inch Maxxis® Bighorn® 2.0 tires provide optimum traction, durability, comfort and steering precision. Wolverine R-Spec EPS SE-exclusive 12-inch aluminum wheels feature bead lock plates for maximum tire durability, especially in challenging terrain.
  • POWER STEERING: Yamaha’s proven electric power steering system on the Wolverine R-Spec EPS SE offers excellent handling over all kinds of terrain, with lower steering effort for reduced fatigue after a long day in the field.
  • SECURE, DURABLE BRAKING: Large diameter front and rear wheel disc brakes provide unsurpassed stopping power with twin pistons for excellent, and predictable, overall brake feeling. Drilled rotors increase cooling and reduce noise plus the wet parking brake is completely sealed, so it’s protected from the elements and it’s virtually maintenance-free.
  • HEAVY-DUTY CARGO AND TOWING CAPACITY: The tough, molded composite bed is rated to haul 300 pounds of gear, with a design that allows you to reposition the tailgate to handle different sized loads—and a 1 inch divider notch provides even more versatility. In the bed are six steel tie-down hooks to secure cargo. A standard, heavy-duty two-inch receiver-style hitch can tow up to 1,500 pounds.

Engine

  • HIGH-TECH DOHC ENGINE: Powered by a double overhead cam (DOHC), 4-valve, fuel-injected 708 cc engine, the Wolverine R-Spec EPS SE is tuned to optimize torque, power delivery and engine character to get through even the most challenging off-road terrain.
  • YAMAHA'S UNIQUE ULTRAMATIC® CVT: Ultramatic® fully automatic transmission with high, low, reverse and neutral provides the industry’s most durable CVT transmission. The one-way sprag clutch produces the industry’s most natural-feeling all-wheel engine braking and eliminates “freewheeling” found in some competitive models. A centrifugal clutch maintains constant belt tension and eliminates slipping reducing belt wear and improving durability.
  • ON-COMMAND® FOUR WHEEL DRIVE: On-Command® puts the driver in control of 2WD, 4WD or 4WD full diff lock with a conveniently mounted and easy to use dash-mounted dial.
  • TUNED TOOL-LESS INTAKE SYSTEM: High-volume air intake optimizes power character for off-road situations and it is tucked under the hood to keep it out of the elements. The over-sized foam air-filter is reusable and accessible without tools.
  • SMART SERVICEABILITY: Gear, coolant, and engine oil drain holes have been designed into the full-length skid plates which make maintaining and servicing the Wolverine R-Spec EPS SE very convenient.
