I think it started with Yamaha's press release back in 2013 with the Viking. Then you had the Wolverine, Viking VI, now YXZ, so that is at least #4.

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.

One of the next 2 models will have the yxz motor with a different tranny for trails. Mark my words. Yamaha uses their new motors in sport vehicles first. Remember the 2001 660 raptor? It had the motor first before the grizzly.

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.
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.
