Yamaha is unveiling it's newest side by side aimed at the sport utility market, the 2016 Yamaha YXZ1000R. The YZX1000R comes in three colors and features an all new 3 cylinder engine. It also has a 5 speed sequential shift manual transmission.

Unmatched SxS Performance

The all-new YXZ1000R doesn't just reset the bar for sport side-by-sides, it is proof that Yamaha is the leader in powersports performance. Featuring a new 998cc inline triple engine mated to a 5-speed sequential shift gearbox with On-Command® 4WD, massive FOX Racing Shox® suspension front and rear, and styling the competition can't touch, the new YXZ1000R is in a class by itself-the only true pure sport SxS ever developed.

Stunning, Industry-first Three-Cylinder Engine

Prepare yourself for the industry's first 998cc inline-three cylinder sport side-by-side engine. Featuring a compact DOHC twelve-valve cylinder head, an aggressive 11.3:1 compression ratio and high-tech dry-sump lubrication, the YXZ1000R engine offers jaw-dropping power, fantastic midrange torque and a thrilling 10,500 rpm redline. With lightweight 80mm forged aluminum pistons and a counterbalancer, the motor is exceptionally smooth-running, too. Built for the pure sport SxS enthusiast, there's nothing else like it.

Industry-first 5-Speed Sequential Shift Transmission with On-Command 4WD

The YXZ1000R establishes a direct connection with driver via an all-new sequential 5-speed manual transmission with reverse that permits rapid and smooth shifting, ideally matched to the potent three-cylinder engine. A beefy hydraulically-actuated clutch system is operated by an automotive-style foot pedal for light, consistent feel and an entirely new sports SxS experience. Yamaha's proven On-Command 4WD system with full Diff Lock is ready to tackle challenging terrain, and the entire driveline is built to provide unmatched durability.

Terrain Conquering, Fully-adjustable FOX Podium RC2 Shocks®

Jutting defiantly through the front hood and defining the rear of the vehicle, the YXZ1000R's huge piggyback FOX® 2.5 Podium RC2 Shocks® bring visual impact with unmatched performance. All four corners are fully adjustable-spring preload, rebound and both high- and low-speed compression damping-with a huge 16.2 inches of front travel and 17.0 inches at the rear, with integrated Bottom-Out technology as well as front and rear sway bars. Result: The ultimate in ride quality, tuneability and handling. Whether you're riding in dunes or dirt, the YXZ1000R suspension will handle the toughest terrain.

Ergonomics Built for Performance

The YXZ1000R cab features plush cut-and-sew high-back seats with extra lateral support and outside shoulder bolsters, and the cockpit is built to provide a balanced combination of secure confidence with comfort. The floorboards are shaped to provide generous legroom while still giving a planted feel during aggressive driving, too. The driver's seat is adjustable across 3.5 inches, and the steering wheel is tilt adjustable 5.8 inches to ensure a perfect fit.
