Features

Capability

  • STUNNING, INDUSTRY-FIRST THREE-CYLINDER ENGINE: Designed to bring a Pure Sport riding character like nothing else in the side-by-side world, the YXZ1000R SS SE engine was built to deliver high-revving power with the flexibility and character that only an inline triple can provide. With a compact, counterbalanced, DOHC cylinder head, an aggressive 11.3:1 compression ratio and dry-sump lubrication, the YXZ1000R SS SE engine offers exceptional power, a thrilling 10,500 rpm redline, and high-strength internals ready to handle the demands of high-output modifications like turbocharging.
  • SMART COOLING SYSTEM: To ensure peak performance every ride, the YXZ1000R SS SE features a vented, rear-mounted radiator. This system not only reduces heat in the cabin, it remains clear of mud or debris build-up, and is designed to funnel cool air through the radiator at low or high speeds equally well.
  • EXCLUSIVE 5-SPEED SEQUENTIAL TRANSMISSION: Nothing in the side-by-side world can match the feeling of banging through the gears using the YXZ1000R SS SE’s 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 controlled with sporty paddle shifters mounted to the steering column. Sport Shift offers a high-tech riding experience that anyone can enjoy, with rapid and precise gear selection literally at your fingertips. And optimized gearing gives the YXZ1000R SS SE even more flexibility to handle nearly any type of trail, from wide-open desert trails to first-gear crawling.
  • HIGH FLOW INTAKE AND EXHAUST: Any engine needs to inhale clean air and exhale as efficiently as possible. The YXZ’s 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 three-into-one high-volume exhaust system centralizes weight distribution and is tuned to provide maximum power across the rev range.
  • EXCLUSIVE ON-COMMAND® 4WD: On-Command 4WD gives the driver ultimate traction, with easily selected 2WD, 4WD limited-slip, and 4WD full diff lock modes. The YXZ1000R SS SE 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.
  • HIGH-SPEC, FULLY-ADJUSTABLE FOX® SHOCKS: The YXZ1000R SS SE features top-shelf FOX® 2.5 Podium® RC2 shocks with dual-spring-rate adjustable crossovers. All four corners are fully adjustable—spring preload, crossover adjustment, 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 along with exceptional ride quality, tuneability, and handling.
  • PURE SPORTS CHASSIS: The YXZ1000R SS SE the best handling sport side-by-side on the planet—period. The YXZ1000R SS SE attacks corners with agility, light steering feel and straight line stability across the roughest terrain. Spherical-joint double A-arms retain ideal castor angle and bump response throughout the entire travel range, and front and rear sway bars minimize body roll for flatter, more responsive cornering. And underneath the optimized frame geometry, full-frame composite skid plates protect against 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 rack-and-pinion steering system, further protecting it from dirt and debris.
  • POWERFUL ALL-WHEEL DISC BRAKES: The YXZ1000R SS SE offers superior braking control thanks to twin-piston calipers clamping down on large 255mm rotors in the front and 245mm rotors in the rear 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.
  • 29-INCH MAXXIS® BIGHORN® TIRES: The YXZ1000R SS SE mounts large 29-inch Maxxis® Bighorn® radial tires that offer increased ground clearance, traction, durability and steering precision. As part of the SE package, these beefy tires are mounted on ultra-durable beadlock rims ready for the toughest terrain conditions.
  • 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.

Comfort

  • 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, and both the driver’s seat and steering wheel are adjustable to ensure a perfect fit.
  • 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.
  • COOL-RUNNING CABIN: Drive hard and keep your cool. The rear-mounted radiator significantly reduces cabin heat compared to a conventional forward- mounted cooling system.
  • PLUSH SUSPENSION: While the high-end FOX® suspension on the YXZ1000R SS SE is primarily focused at maximizing adjustment range for aggressive terrain, that same range of adjustment adds flexibility, too. With a couple of quick tweaks, the YXZ1000R SS SE can be tuned to deliver a plush, smooth ride that defies the idea that sport and comfort can’t coexist.

Confidence

  • PROVEN RELIABILITY: Yamaha continues to build industry-leading machines lauded for their peerless reliability and durability. The YXZ1000R SS SE features fit and finish, components and construction designed to make every ride exceptional.
  • 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. The Special Edition package throws out even more light thanks to the center-mounted auxiliary lights, too.
  • 300-POUND CARGO CAPACITY: Bring what you need thanks to a cargo rack with a 300-pound capacity. A glove box in the cab provides additional storage, as do passenger-side cup holders and a central storage tray in the dashboard.
  • ASSEMBLED IN THE USA: The YXZ1000R SS SE is proudly assembled in Newnan, GA, for world-wide distribution and is built to be Real World Tough™.

  • EXCLUSIVE ENGINE AND TRANSMISSION: Unique, powerful and just as exclusive as when it was first unveiled in 2017, the YXZ1000R SS SE features a high-revving, high-output inline-triple engine mated to Yamaha’s Sport Shift, a sequential 5-speed manual transmission featuring Yamaha Chip Controlled Shift (YCC-S) technology.

  • HIGH-SPEC CHASSIS: Big engines makes headlines, but it’s the chassis that does the real work. The YXZ1000R SS SE flatters its driver with one of the most agile, adjustable and capable side-by-side chassis designs ever seen in a production side-by-side.
  • DRIVER-FOCUSED ERGONOMICS: Comfort is control when driving hard, and the YXZ1000R SS SE is built around this concept. The driver and passenger are kept low in the chassis, with exceptional visibility. The cabin offers roomy, high-back seats with plenty of adjustability for the driver.
  • YAMAHA ENGINEERING: Not only does the YXZ1000R SS SE come standard with Yamaha’s famous reputation for reliability, it’s also assembled in the USA and engineered with a full range of factory accessory options, so you can customize a YXZ to your needs and know it will meet and exceed your expectations for years to come.
  • SPECIAL EDITION PACKAGE: The YXZ1000R SS SE stands out with a range of stylish, high-spec components. Advanced FOX® Dual Spring suspension controls beefy beadlock rims with enhanced underbody protection.
