There is a lot of info circulating about the new model. Some of it based on fact, like the CARB docs, some of it based on speculation, like the possibility of two models...

What are your Top 3 (or more) questions for Yamaha with this new machine?

Only one that I have concerns with.

1. How does the clutch work? Is it a pedal or electronic. I think a pedal would put a lot of people off. Especially rock crawlers, hill climbers. Do a little bit of hill climbing.. I don't see doing the 3 pedal shuffle as a good feature when stopped on a hill side though.

Not really a big deal that can't be solved with gearing but does it have a High and Low range set of gears?

Will you please send me a silver YXZ SE? Will you please send me a yellow YXZ SE? Will you please send me a blue base model YXZ? lol



Seriously though, Will there be a 60",64plus"and possibly a 50" in the future? Factory turbo or supercharger in the works for future release? Will any of the technology of this new YXZ makes its way into other Yamaha Utvs?

How much wheel travel does it have?
How the tranny work? foot pedal clutch or something else?
How comfortable is it for a guy over 6' tall?

I'm with you on the 50" class. A 60+ is great for private land and dunes but the public areas that are limited to 50 are a good time too

For every 12 year old out there! Hey how fast will that thing go? LOL

How bout Price I would like to know that as well as whats already been mentioned!
For me, an acceptable price might vary depending on the answers I get to my first 3 questions.
Then my follow up question would be, How much added HP will I get out of it if I reflash the ECU?

Just would like to know if a 50" will be available and what the ground clearance will be. Where I ride, don't need gobs of power or crazy suspension travel. Eliminating the CVT belt system would be a plus. Just give me a dependable machine I don't have to reengineer to get it right.

Wondering bout fenders, clutch, cab layout and leg room. I hope it's not engineered only for a 5'9" person. The maverick had the best fitment of a taller person so far and the sauna effect will help you lose weight. Lol

I agree above the fit of the Mav but mine doesn't have any heat issues in the cab after I installed heat shield inside the console.

Some more questions to ask that are not usually published.

Does it have a seat slider or is it like the Wolverine where you have to undo the 4 bolts to move seat back or forward?

There a fender flare option for mudders? Overfenders are big hit.

When will the first dealer orders arrive?

Will the 4 colors/models be available for dealer order right away or other colors release later? The Artic White Wolverine was just release and that was a long time after all the others.

Top Speed?

Max RPM?

0-60 time.

Wattage of stator at Idle. People like to run big stereo's and lots of lights.
