Yamaha ATVs and UTVs – Models, Prices, Specs and Reviews

2020 Yamaha ATVs and UTVs

Yamaha ATVs have been part of our off-road fabric since they first debuted in the United States with the 1980 Tri-Moto three-wheeler.

After evolving its three-wheel lineup for the next five years, Yamaha came to market with its first four-wheeled ATV in the 1985 model year – the Yamaha YFM200 Moto-4 – the first of all the Yamaha ATVs to come with a practical reverse gear.

With the release of the Yamaha Banshee in the 1987 model year, Yamaha offered the industry’s first high-performance, twin-cylinder, liquid-cooled, 350cc, 2-stroke engine – the largest two-stroke engine ever in an ATV.

Other benchmarks of Yamaha ATVs include the 1987 Warrior (first electric start Sport ATV), 1987 TerraPro (first ATV with Power Take Off capabilities), 1989 Pro Hauler (first ATV with a cargo bed), 1998 Grizzly 600 (at the time the largest ever even in a Utilty ATV), 1999 Beartracker (first Yamaha ATV built in the U.S.), 1991 660R Raptor (at the time the largest engine ever in a Sport ATV), 2002 Grizzly 660 (first push button front differential lock feature), 2004 YFZ450 (best power-to-weight ratio of any ATV ever), and 2007 Grizzly 700 EPS (first ATV with electronic power steering).

Beyond Yamaha ATVs, the Yamaha brand expanded to include UTVs. The Yamaha Rhino helped usher the sport-recreation UTV segment and was a wild success for the brand for a decade and led the way for the Yamaha Viking, Yamaha Wolverine, and Yamaha YXZ1000R models.

Yamaha YXZ1000R SS SE
