Yamaha has introduced two new Special Edition models to its line of Side-by-Side vehicles. Yamaha’s YXZ1000R and Wolverine both receive new SE versions for 2016.

The new YXZ1000R SE features an all-new Silver Metallic and Blaze Red Metallic painted exterior and interior with color matched seats and A-arms, along with 14-inch true bead lock wheels. The new YXZ1000R SE is assembled at Yamaha’s factory in Newnan, Ga. and is scheduled to arrive at Yamaha dealerships in April. MSRP is $21,599.

Yamaha’s new Wolverine SE features Tactical Black and Matte Silver painted bodywork with color matched seats, under seat storage, and durable injection-molded polypropylene overfenders for increased protection from the elements. Yamaha also made the Wolverine SE tougher with full-length, full-coverage aluminum skid plate set – including the front bash plate, center, rear and side frame skids – aluminum A-arm guards, 12-inch true bead lock wheels and a new soft grip over-mold steering wheel. The new Wolverine SE starts arriving at Yamaha dealerships late this month. MSRP is $14,799.
