Designed to bring a Pure Sport riding character like nothing else in the side-by-side world, the YXZ1000R SS engine was built to deliver high-revving power with the flexibility and character that only an inline triple can provide.

The YXZ1000R SS is built to blow away the competition in every terrain, from desert dunes to muddy trails. To ensure peak performance every ride, the 2019 YXZ1000R SS features a new rear-mounted radiator: this system not only reduces heat in the cabin, it remains clear of mud or debris build-up, and is designed to funnel cool air through the radiator at low or high speeds equally well.Exclusive 5-Speed Sequential Transmission
Pure Sport is not just about engine output—engaging the driver is just as important. And nothing in the side-by-side world can match the feeling of banging through the gears using the YXZ1000R SS’s Sport Shift, a sequential 5-speed manual transmission featuring Yamaha Chip Controlled Shift (YCC-S) technology. This system combines the power, durability and efficiency of a traditional manual transmission with an advanced automatic clutch system controlled with sporty paddle shifters mounted to the steering column. Sport Shift offers a high-tech riding experience that anyone can enjoy, with rapid and precise gear selection literally at your fingertips. For 2019, the transmission also features newly optimized gearing that gives the YXZ1000R SS even more flexibility to handle nearly any type of trail, from wide-open desert roads to first gear crawling.
The YXZ1000R SS cab features plush, high-back seats with extra lateral support and outside shoulder bolsters, and the cockpit provides a balance of driving confidence with comfort. Shaped floorboards provide generous legroom while still giving a planted feel during aggressive driving, and both the driver’s seat and steering wheel are adjustable to ensure a perfect fit.Supersport-Style Dashboard
