    Yamaha Viking VI BYO

    If you own or plan to buy a new Yamaha Viking VI, you’d be wise to check out Yamaha’s new “Build Your Own” (BYO) site at YamahaViking.com. This site gives customers the ability to see what their machine might look like outfitted with a variety of accessories.

    Yamaha currently has more than 50 accessories for the Viking VI. The new 2015 Viking VI model was announced in June 2014 and production is now in full swing with vehicles being delivered to dealers across the country.

        Yamaha Viking HMF Swamp Exhaust

        HMF is now offering its Swamp slip-on exhaust for the Yamaha Viking, offering a bit more performance from Yamaha’s Utility Side-by-Side.

        Discuss this at our Yamaha Viking Forum.

        In addition to any performance boost, HMF says the Swamp slip-on ($399.95) sheds two to three pounds compared to the stock system. Sound levels are claimed to be just one or to decibels higher than the stock unit with a deeper tone. However, for those looking for a bit more bark (and power), HMF’s Swamp XL (Extra Loud) is also available for $369.95.

          Yamaha Outdoor Access Initiative Logo

          Yamaha Motor Corp., U.S.A., is contributing more than $65,000 in cash and equipment to eight GRANT (Guaranteeing Responsible Access to our Nation’s Trails) recipients under the Yamaha Outdoor Access Initiative. According to Yamaha, the projects awarded GRANTs support the program’s industry-leading dedication to safe, responsible riding and open sustainable access to land, trails and riding areas for OHV users.

          “The OHV community is embracing the expanded platform of the Outdoor Access Initiative and we encourage all recreationists who rely on OHVs to access the outdoors to keep an eye out for projects that promote and protect that access,” says Mike Martinez, Yamaha’s ATV/SxS group vice president. “We recognize that by broadening the scope of the GRANT program, we increase competition for the funds available but, as a result, we expect to see projects that have a greater benefit to all OHV enthusiasts.”

Three chapters including the University of Missouri, University of Florida and University of Nebraska-Lincoln were awarded a combined $4,000 to help with travel costs associated with students attending AMS.

            Yamaha also awarded a $1,500 individual scholarship to Valerie Kesterson, a student from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. “The Yamaha scholarships were pivotal in our chapter’s decision to attend Ag Media Summit this year,” Kesterson said.
