The All-New Yamaha Viking

Yamaha introduces a new multi-purpose utility vehicle.
  • The Viking

    Yamaha recently realeased the all-new Viking, which will be replacing the Yamaha Rhino. The Viking was engineered as a robust and high-capacity utility vehicle for a fun, confidence-inspiring experience in an agricultural, hunting, or recreational setting.

  • Three-Passenger Machine

    One of the most noticeable differences between the Rhino and the Viking is the seat configuration. The Viking has three individual bucket seats with headrests and seatbelts. To give passengers more room in a tight space, the middle seat is reclined slightly and the headrest is set back.

  • High-Performance Engine

    The Viking is equipped with Yamaha’s most powerful 686-cc., liquid-cooled, fuel injected power plant. A four-valve head with 10.0:1 compression delivers optimum torque for varying workloads and up to a 30% gain in fuel efficiency.

  • Ultramatic Transmission

    The Viking features an Ultramatic transmission with dual-range (hi-lo) drive and reverse. An automatic centrifugal clutch maintains constant belt tension for reduced belt wear. Three-position On-Command four-wheel drive lets you dial between two-wheel drive, limited-slip four-wheel drive, and fully locked differential four-wheel drive.

  • Smooth Ride

    Electric power steering is available for improved handling regardless of the terrain. An independent double wishbone suspension gives the Viking 8.1 inches of front and rear travel. The rear suspension system is shown on the left. Total ground clearance for the Viking is 11.8 inches.
