SHIFTY GOOD LOOKS

The YXZ1000R SS SE shifts the pure sport Side-by-Side class to another level with fully adjustable FOX 2.5 Podium X2 shocks, bead lock wheels, eye-catching color scheme and more.

Additional Features

  • SPECIAL EDITION FEATURES: In addition to the industry-first, twin-wall Fox® 2.5 Podium® X2 Shocks and durable color-matched bead-lock wheels, the YXZ1000R SS SE is highlighted by a darkly aggressive Matte paint and graphics package with matching A-arms and ROPS frame for standout style.
  • 300-POUND CARGO CAPACITY: Bring what you need thanks to a composite cargo bed with a 300-pound capacity and four steel tie-down points. A sealed compartment next to the cargo bed and glove box in the cab provide additional storage, as do passenger-side cup holders and a central storage tray in the dashboard.
  • STANDARD SUNTOP: The YXZ1000R SS SE comes standard with a composite suntop integrated into the ROPS structure. A pair of whip flag mounts are ready for customization options, too.
  • AGGRESSIVE LED LIGHTING: Four super bright and long-lasting LED headlights provide brilliant forward illumination and give the YXZ1000R SS SE a sinister sense of style, with a bright LED taillight for extra visibility.
  • ASSEMBLED IN THE USA: The all-new YXZ1000R SS SE is proudly assembled in Newnan, GA, for world-wide distribution and is built to be Real World Tough™.

Chassis / Suspension

  • AGGRESSIVE STYLE: Radical styling shows off Yamaha’s passion for powersports. And form follows function, as the front suspension design permits an extremely low hood line for excellent trail visibility.
  • TERRAIN CONQUERING, INDUSTRY-EXCLUSIVE FOX® PODIUM X2 SHOCKS: No other suspension on the market can match the YXZ1000R SS SE's ability to deliver both low-speed comfort over the harshest chop while at the same time providing incredible bottoming resistance. Huge piggyback twin-wall FOX® 2.5 Podium X2 Shocks bring a whole new level of adjustability by not only giving you high- and low-speed compression damping adjustments, but, for the first time ever, high- and low-speed rebound as well, all mounted to the top of the shock body for easy tuning. All shocks also feature dual springs with crossover adjustment— providing 16.2 inches front and 17.0 inches rear travel.
  • OPTIMIZED SUSPENSION GEOMETRY: Rigid spherical-joint double A-arms suspension retains ideal castor angle and bump response throughout the entire travel range, for excellent cornering ability, light steering feel and straight line stability across the roughest terrain. Front and rear sway bars minimize body roll for flatter, more responsive cornering.
  • PURE SPORTS CHASSIS: Optimized frame dimensions make the YXZ1000R SS SE the best handling sport side-by-side on the planet. In addition to the performance and durability that comes with Yamaha’s exacting standards, the YXZ1000R SS SE also includes extensive occupant protection without sacrificing driver visibility, and a full-frame composite underbody skidplate protects the chassis from rocks and debris.
  • YAMAHA ELECTRIC POWER STEERING (EPS): The YXZ1000R SS SE features Yamaha’s class-leading speed-sensitive EPS, for reduced steering effort and precise handling in virtually all conditions. The EPS unit is lightweight and compact, mounted high on the new rack-and-pinion steering system, further protecting it from dirt and debris.
  • POWERFUL ALL-WHEEL DISC BRAKES: The YXZ1000R SS SE offers precise braking control thanks to twin-piston calipers clamping down on 245 mm rotors at all four wheels, for excellent braking power, feel and fade-resistance under hard use. An automotive-style parking brake lever is mounted in the cabin’s center console.
  • EXCLUSIVE 27-INCH MAXXIS® TIRES WITH BEAD LOCK WHEELS: Developed exclusively for Yamaha, the YXZ1000R SS SE mounts 27-inch Maxxis® Bighorn® 2.0 radial tires that offer extreme performance, with increased ground clearance, optimum traction, durability, comfort and steering precision. These tires are mounted to tough 14-inch alloy wheels with bead lock plates for maximum tire durability, especially in challenging terrain.
  • ERGONOMICS BUILT FOR PERFORMANCE: The YXZ1000R SS SE cab features plush, high-back seats with extra lateral support and outside shoulder bolsters, and the cockpit provides a balance of driving confidence with comfort. Shaped floorboards provide generous legroom while still giving a planted feel during aggressive driving, and both the driver’s seat and steering wheel are adjustable to ensure a perfect fit. Improved cabin insulation keep you cooler when blasting across the hottest summer days.
  • SUPERSPORT-STYLE DASHBOARD: The YXZ1000R SS SE features instruments inspired by Yamaha’s high-performance supersport motorcycles. Functions include a digital speedometer, analog tachometer and programmable shift light, with readouts for 4WD mode, gear position, fuel level, trip meters, hour meter, coolant temperature warning and a clock. The new Sport Shift system also indicates when the YCC-S is actuating the clutch or Launch System for additional control and driver feedback.

Engine

  • STUNNING, INDUSTRY-FIRST THREE-CYLINDER ENGINE: Featuring a compact DOHC 12-valve cylinder head, an aggressive 11.3:1 compression ratio and high-tech dry-sump lubrication, the YXZ1000R SS SE engine offers jaw-dropping power, fantastic midrange torque and a thrilling 10,500 rpm redline. With lightweight forged aluminum pistons and an engine counterbalancer, the motor is exceptionally smooth-running, too. Built for the pure sport side-by-side enthusiast, there’s nothing else like it.
  • SPORT SHIFT 5-SPEED SEQUENTIAL SHIFT TRANSMISSION: The YXZ1000R SS SE breaks new ground with Yamaha Sport Shift, a sequential 5-speed manual transmission featuring Yamaha Chip Controlled Shift (YCC-S) technology. This system combines the power, durability and efficiency of a traditional manual transmission with an advanced automatic clutch system that replaces the foot-operated clutch pedal with sporty paddle shifters mounted to the steering column. Yamaha Sport Shift offers a high-tech riding experience that anyone can enjoy, with rapid and precise gear selection literally at your fingertips.
  • LAUNCH SYSTEM: The YXZ1000R SS SE shift system incorporates a unique Launch System. Actuated using the brake pedal and both steering wheel paddles, the Launch System allows for high-speed take-offs for maximum acceleration—and excitement.
  • HIGH FLOW INTAKE SYSTEM: High capacity intake system features dual air filters—one oiled foam, one viscous paper—affording maximum airflow to the engine as well as durable filtration for the dirtiest riding environments. The re-usable foam filter features tool-free access for easy servicing, too.
  • COMPACT AND CLEAN EXHAUST SYSTEM: The three-into-one high-volume exhaust system with center-mounted muffler centralizes weight distribution and is tuned to provide maximum power across the rev range.
  • YAMAHA'S EXCLUSIVE ON-COMMAND® 4WD: On-Command 4WD gives the driver ultimate traction, with easily selected 2WD and 4WD full diff lock modes. The YXZ1000R SS SE's drivetrain incorporates Yamaha’s proven On- Command 4WD system to tackle the most challenging terrain. To deliver Yamaha’s exceptional durability, this system also incorporates an over-torque protection system that eliminates spike loads to the front drive case on hard impacts, protecting it from damage without affecting performance.
