SMOOTHER, QUIETER WORKHORSE
A quieter, smoother cabin combined with class-leading off-road capability. Translation: Chore-tackling comfort for three!
- Torquey 700-Class Engine: The Viking is ready to conquer whatever comes its way with a powerful 686cc, liquid-cooled, fuel injected, SOHC power plant. This engine produces strong low-end acceleration and pulls hard through the rpm range to deliver excellent power for getting the job done or when hitting the trails.
- High Volume Intake: The Viking features a large-capacity air intake system that improves overall engine performance. The air cleaner box is easily accessible from inside the cabin for improved serviceability.
- Responsive and Reliable Ultramatic Transmission: Ultramatic® transmission with dual-range (Hi/Lo) drive and reverse is the most advanced drive system available. An automatic centrifugal clutch maintains constant belt tension for reduced belt wear and the system features a sprag clutch for all-wheel downhill engine braking in 4WD mode and reverse.
- On-Command® 4WD: Industry-exclusive three-position On-Command® 4WD system lets you quickly dial between 2WD, limited-slip 4WD and fully locked differential 4WD.
- Comfortable Three Seat Cabin: This true 3-passenger machine achieves driver and passenger comfort with a handhold, padded head rests, and 3-point seat belts for all riders. The superior seating position, adjustable driver’s seat, and the middle seat set back 5 degrees all provide unmatched comfort that riders will appreciate.
- Extensive Cargo Capacity: The chassis design includes a convenient pass-through floor for greater ease of on-board movement, making it possible to enter and exit the vehicle from either side. The rear cargo bed is made of steel and is designed for a hefty load capacity of 600 pounds.
- Quieter, Smoother Cabin: New rubber damper plates, a more rigid chassis, additional sound damping material and an all-new cylinder head mount reduce vibration and quiet the cabin for a more relaxing ride quality at all engine speeds.
- More Rigid Cargo Box with Integrated Accessory Mounts: New stiffer cargo box further reduces noise and vibration inside the cabin, while the cargo bed rails now incorporate mounting points to make adding genuine Yamaha accessories that much easier. A rubber cargo bed mat is included to further reduce noise and vibration while improving durability.
- Improved Convenience: New automotive-style two-stage door latches are fitted, and inside the cabin, a new parking brake warning buzzer warns the driver if the vehicle is driven while the brake is engaged.
- Torquey 700-Class Engine: The Viking is equipped with Yamaha’s powerful 686cc engine with a broad, usable powerband. Liquid-cooling provides consistent performance, a four-valve head with 10.0:1 compression delivers optimum torque for virtually any workload, and up to a 30% gain in fuel efficiency compared to comparable two-valve designs.
- Yamaha Fuel Injection Electronic: fuel injection ensures peak performance in nearly all conditions and elevations, along with instantaneous cold starts and smooth response.
- Efficient Intake System: Large-capacity air intake system contributes to the engine’s overall power development. Air injection system burns the un-combusted elements in the exhaust, resulting in even further reduced emissions.
- Clean-running Drive Case: Specially designed drive system air intake helps prevent overheating and assists in keeping water and debris from entering the drive case.
- Gated Shifter: Convenient dash-mounted gated shift lever (L/H/N/R) provides simple Ultramatic transmission operation.
- Excellent Ground Clearance: A maximum 11.8-inch ground clearance delivers underbelly protection while enhancing terrainability. The Viking’s width also helps minimize 30” row crop damage.
- Powerful, Controllable Brakes: Large diameter front and rear wheel disc brakes provide unsurpassed stopping power, and the dash-mounted parking brake is simple and convenient to use, with a new buzzer to notify the driver if the parking brake is accidentally left engaged.
- Hefty Towing Capability: Standard center-mounted, heavy-duty 2-inch receiver-style hitch can tow up to 1500 pounds.
- Secure Doors: Tough, rotomolded doors help keep mud, water and dirt on the trail where they belong, with robust automotive latches for years of reliable service.
- Convenient Cargo Bed: Stamped steel dump bed is rated to haul 600 pounds of gear. In the bed are four tie-down hooks to help make sure cargo is strapped down securely. The cargo bed can be unlatched and tilted from either side when needed, with dual lift assists for ease of unloading cargo. New for 2016, the cargo bed rail now has integrated mounting points to make installing genuine Yamaha accessories that much easier.
- Rubber Cargo Bed Mat: Rubber cargo bed mat further reduces noise and vibration while improving durability and providing extra holding power for cargo.
- Service Accessibility: The engine is located under the cargo bed and can be easily accessed when the bed is lifted. Center hood access for battery and other electrical components eases maintenance. Under-seat, tool-free air filter is a snap to service.
- Roomy, Comfortable Cabin: Padded head rests are included and the middle seat is set back for both driver and passenger comfort. The pass-through floor provides onboard ease of movement for getting in and out of the vehicle from either side. And a standard sun top keeps passengers covered.
- Digital Instrumentation: Digital instrument panel boasts multifunction LCD display with speedometer, odometer, dual trip meters, hour meter, 4WD status, transmission position, clock and a fuel gauge.
- Underbody Protection: Steel skid plate under the frame provides protection from rocks and ruts and helps prevent the Viking from getting stuck. A new welded rear skid plate improves slideability ever more.
- Cabin Storage: A latching glove box is included to store smaller items such as cell phones, wallets, etc. The Viking is also equipped with four in-dash cup holders for passenger comfort.
- Big Fuel Tank: Large, 9.7-gallon fuel tank allows for long rides.
- Assembled in the USA: Proudly built Real World Tough™ and assembled in Newnan, GA, U.S.A.
