New Viking launches Yamaha's five-year plan for SxS
Publish Date: Jun 12, 2013
LAS VEGAS, Nev. - Yamaha told dealers this week that the new Viking side-by-side is the first in what will be a series of new-model intros in this sector through 2018.
PhotoshoppedTheir is a white and red YXZ in some of the spy shots. This is brewing speculation.
...............Would love to see a wolverine with the yxz motor and transmission and suspension and still be able to throw a deer in the bed and haul it back to camp.
Honestly that just doesn't look right. A BUCK behind you.....must be the early RUT!!!!View attachment 700 ...............
If that's the case, then a new YXZ 4 seater wouldn't be a new model either. Or anything with the YXZ designation.I see it as the 3rd sxs. I don't count different variations of a model as a whole new unit (turbo, 4-6 seater). Should be a narrow one coming out and maybe a single seater?
SXS per the quote above from Yamaha. I'd bet on a 4 seater before a turbo model. A single seat would be great too, not the Ace style though. That's too much like a quad with a cage, not sporty. Polaris has a patent on that so they may show one first.When they said 5 new models was that for just sidexside or including atv lineup as well.
I agree with this projection. I know no one at Yamaha and I'm just guessing but I don't think the "5 new models in 5 years" pledge included counting 2 and 4 seat machines of the same name as a different machine. 1) Viking 2) Wolverine 3) Yxz 4)? 5)?? But who knows, maybe the multi-passenger models are counted, since technically it would be a different frame. If that's the case, then there's one more machine coming, according to the pledge, and I'd guess it's either a 4 seat Wolverine or Yxz. But I'm hoping for some derivative of the ladder.They better debut the Wolverine 4 before the YXZ 4. This should also be 3 of their projected 5 units they planned to bring to market over the next 5 years.
