New Special Edition Models for 2018

For 2018, Yamaha is introducing a new Light Yellowish Metallic Grey Viking EPS SE model equipped with a color matched interior, hard sun top, under-seat storage, cast aluminum wheels, comfort-grip steering wheel, over fenders and unique Special Edition badging.

The Leading Multi-Passenger SxS with Best-in-Class Features

With class-leading cab room and comfort, coupled with superior handling and Proven Off-Road capability, Vikings are the toughest and hardest working utility-based SxS vehicles that are also fun to drive.

Viking SxS models are well-appointed with Yamaha’s REAL WORLD Tech features including an Ultramatic® fully automatic transmission providing the industry’s most durable CVT transmission and natural-feeling engine braking, On-Command® 2WD/4WD with full differential-lock, and Electric Power Steering (EPS). Further benefits include a powerful 686cc, liquid-cooled, fuel-injected, SOHC power plant, 11.8-inches of ground clearance, large diameter front and rear wheel disc brakes, and a large 9.7-gallon fuel tank for long rides or all-day work.

The Viking’s comfortable three- or six-seat cab features automotive-style two-stage door latches, pass through bucket seating, padded passenger handholds, dedicated angled floorboard foot positioning, and more. A reinforced rear steel cargo bed incorporates mounting points on the bed rails and a rubber cargo bed mat to reduce sound and vibration. Large enough for a fully-loaded pallet, the assisted dump bed can pack up to 600 pounds of equipment and supplies while retaining its supple ride and off-road capability. The standard two-inch receiver hitch is rated to pull 1,500 pounds – with or without a full load in the cargo bed.
