an unmatched direct connection experience between
driver and machine, the YXZ1000R made its racing
debut last year with a dominating performance,
acquiring the titles and top positions in the
LORORS Production 1000 UTV class in both Arizona
and Southern California, as well as winning
the TORC series’ debut Pro Stock UTV class.
Yamaha’s class-leading and race-proven
YFZ450R sport ATV, with unmatched consistency
and performance, continues to add to its winning
legacy both on the track and trail, again securing
the ATV MX and GNCC championships in 2016.
The Yamaha YXZ1000R and YFZ450R, along with
the entire line of SxSs and full-size ATVs,
