The radically styled Yamaha YXZ1000R is a new kind of Recreational Off Road Vehicle (ROV) that has been conceived, engineered and manufactured as a 100% pure sports recreational model.
Powered by a new generation torque-rich 3-cylinder engine driving though a rally-style 5-speed sports stick shift sequential transmission, the YXZ is like no other model ever seen in the off-road world.
Equipped with the most advanced ultra-long travel suspension ever seen on a production off-roader, the YXZ1000R introduces a whole range of industry leading technology to the ROV world for the first time.

Fed by triple fuel injectors with 41mm bodies, the free-breathing 4-valve cylinder heads run with a high 11.3:1 compression ratio that contributes significantly towards the YXZ's massive midrange torque and free-revving character. And with its vibration killing single-axis balancer, this torque-rich 3-cylinder engine is an exceptionally smooth runne
Yamaha have developed an all-new 5-speed sequential-shift transmission that has been designed to complement the exhilarating supersport character of the torque rich 3-cylinder engine. The rally-style sequential shift enables ultra-fast gearshifting for awesome acceleration, while the manual gearbox ensures instant and efficient transmission of power to the drive wheels without the power losses associated with some other CVT systems.
With the twist of a dial, On-Command 4WD gives the driver ultimate traction, with easily selected 2WD, 4WD and 4WD full Diff-Lock modes. The YXZ1000R’s all-new drivetrain incorporates and takes advantage of Yamaha's proven On-Command 4WD system with full Diff-Lock for challenging terrain.
An overhead protection system complete with a lightweight suntop is fitted as standard, and its rugged tubular structure has been developed to offer high levels of front and rear visibility for the driver and passenger.
Featuring huge piggyback reservoirs, the state of the art Fox 2.5in Podium RC2 shocks not only shape the looks of this machine, they also enable it to conquer the most extreme terrain. With all four shocks being fully adjustable for spring preload, rebound and both high and low speed compression damping, this system can be dialed in to handle virtually any situation.
245mm diameter discs are fitted to all four wheels, and are gripped by 2-piston calipers for powerful and effective braking performance with plenty of feel, allowing the driver to brake later and harder.
To underline the YXZ1000R’s exclusive supersport specification, the standard model features aggressively styled 12-spoke alloy wheels with an optimised offset that gives steering agility together with high-speed stability. These lightweight wheels are fitted with Yamaha-exclusive 27-inch Bighorn 2.0 radial tyres that offer extreme performance as well as increased ground clearance.
The ergonomics of the YXZ1000R are all about enhancing the driver’s comfort and control. With its plush high-back seats and integral shoulder bolsters, the fighter pilot style cockpit features well designed controls and instruments that enable the driver to concentrate fully on the trail in front of them.
Instruments reflect Yamaha supersports motorcycles and mix analogue speedo with digital tacho.
To mark Yamaha Motor Corporation's 60th anniversary the YXZ1000R is available in a special Yellow/Black design featuring the iconic 'speedblock' design exclusively equipped with special wheels featuring bead lock plates that help prevent tyre creep in the most extreme terrain.
