Yamaha has released both of their 2021 Sport ATVs, the YFZ450R and the Raptor 700R models.
The YFZ450R comes to dealerships with a quick-revving 449cc fuel-injected engine and a titanium five-valve cylinder head delivering abundant power throughout the mid to top end, after the YFZ’s signature massive torque-feeling right off idle. Built at Yamaha’s U.S. factory in Newnan, Georgia, and motocross-ready, the weldless frame is designed from lightweight aluminum with a tension-steel bottom frame allowing the engine to sit lower for excellent mass-centralization. Suspension components and settings further reduce weight while providing light, sharp handling and rider comfort. Comfort and convenience are further enhanced with an assist-and-slipper clutch, reducing clutch lever effort for less fatigue, while also increasing clutch plate pressure and reducing engine braking for faster cornering, particularly while downshifting. Further improving track lap times, the YFZ450R’s ergonomic bodywork allows the rider increased room to shift their weight in the corners and leverage the race-inspired padded seat to maximize traction and momentum. Riders can easily remove the no-tool body panels, quickly accessing key service areas without the need to remove the battery or other components.
The 2021 YFZ450R is available in Team Yamaha Blue for $11,699 MSRP
The 2021 Raptor 700R offers style, comfort, and most importantly big-bore performance, all adding up to the great choice of a sport ATV for thrill-seekers and weekend warriors. A potent and proven 686cc liquid-cooled, fuel-injected engine delivers enormous torque right off idle, transitioning into a potent mid-range and monstrous top-end.
The Raptor 700’s power, combined with an advanced, lightweight hybrid steel and aluminum frame, controlled-fill aluminum subframe, and cast aluminum swingarm, results in a durable, rigid structure, offering a premier power-to-weight ratio while beating the competition as the lightest ATV in its class. Superior handling enhances the Raptor 700 incredible experience, smoothing out trail and braking bumps thanks to fully adjustable suspension with 230mm (9.1-
inch) front and 256mm (10.1-inch) rear suspension travel. Additional, Rider-friendly features, such as a thick, plush seat, dual counter-balancers, electric start, and a reverse gear, bring comfort and convenience to all day adventures.
The 2021 Team Yamaha Blue Raptor 700R is available for $11,799 MSRP. To see more of the 2021 line-up visit www.Yamaha-motor.ca
That’s awesome! The YFZ450R looks cool. I can imagine myself putting new ATV mud tires and wheels on that bad boy.
