I like the yellowish black one but have learned that once the matte colors are scratched there is no way to get it out. Looks like 21 ss/se buyers get a free roof and rear view mirror, bastards...
Always nice when the next years release doesn't get tons of updates so your current year one doesn't seem dated Yea my 2020 still rocks!!!
What is up with the terrilbe color combo's for the xtr's? No offense to the guys who like them but I went to buy a 20 xtr until I saw the color combo in person and the new green, ugh!!! That is most defiantly not for me.
This is ridiculous. Yamaha releases this RMAX thing with a 4 seat version???
There HAS TO be some serious reason they aren't releasing a 4 seat YXZ. Maybe it's because the extra weight isn't well handled by our low torque high reving engine? Or because the extra weight kills the clutch?
Talon at the bottom for comparison and the RMAX looks much better I think.
The more I look the uglier the Talon gets. No comparison in my mind. Wolverine looks much better. The Honda lines don't flow at all. All chopped up with half the door missing, Seriously. Talon is ugly in comparison.
It is to compete with the General, not the sport utv's, thus the bed. Lot of people are looking for a machine that can work and play to justify the cost, or in the 4 seat version don't want one that is as long as a station wagon. Nice looking machine if you ask me. I really like the idea if you want to bang rocks and want a machine you can beat on all day buy a Wolverine. If you want a more refined car to fly around the woods or dunes get the Yxz.
IMHO, I think they nailed the sport/ute machine. It looks sharp, comfortable well laid out cab, and everything from HP/travel/clearance is top of the class. If I had a gripe, it would be that it need more room for larger tires. Now it may accept 32" no problem but it looks like it would be tight.
YXZ will probably get a refresh to compete with the top turbos now that they have they sport/ute category locked up for a few yrs. I doubt we will see a 4 seat YXZ, they classify it as a pure sport, not a family wagon. I am perfectly fine with that logic but, what I would like to see is the 64" refresh with more travel, HP NA, and a turbo R. Also a 72" turbo with long travel suspension to run with the pack of others.
It seems to have a wet clutch driving a constant pressure belt?
10 year warranty on the belt?
<< The Toughest Transmission
The Proven Off-Road technology of Yamaha’s Ultramatic® system is unmatched in the industry. Backed by the industry's only 10-year belt warranty, the CVT system utilizes a new, centrifugal wet clutch purpose-built to withstand the power from the new 999cc engine, and a constant tension belt system for tackling obstacles in high rev range without fear of damaging the belt. When more torque is needed, the low gear is perfect for challenging conditions. The robust CVT system means less time switching gears and more fun taking on any terrain.
My sister needs something I wont have to work on.
I would like to see some reviews.
It seems to have some whistles and bells - cab and floor lighting, lighted rocker switch, etc.
But 23k is a bit steep for 15" of wheel travel.
I'm seeing 4 seat Talon's for 23k
And 2020 YXZ's for 16k -

On those cheap Yxz prices don't forget to add freight, setup, dealer mark up, I'm from Oregon and looked into buying one I either had to have it shipped to me or if I wanted to pick it up I had to pay California sales tax. In the end the great sounding deal wasn't very great. Dealers who advertise those lowball prices suck.
I have to say, the Yamaha CVT is second to none for durability and function. I Had the 708cc 2016 Wolverine Rspec, no jerky (ever), low to no maintenance, and never heard of a machine blowing a belt. I have heard of some burning up wet clutch due to oversize mud lug tires in a thick mud hole. There is a fix for that though, install the slug kit from Hunterworks. Highly recommended if using for a large tire mud machine.
