2018 YXZ1000R Sport Shift
11 September 2017
Crazy for racing, 2.0 performance and fun
The original YXZ1000R changed the ROV scene forever. With its super aggressive styling, high-performance engine and advanced chassis, it opened up the era of the pure sport SxS.
We’re taking off road performance to the next level with the YXZ1000R SS – the highest specification SxS ever! Its rally-style paddle shift gives instant fingertip control for clutchless full throttle shifting. And with its YCC-S activated launch control system, nothing comes close to the YXZ1000R SS from a standing start.
Equipped with 14-inch cast aluminium beadlock wheels and recalibrated long travel suspension, both the YXZ1000R SS and the SE are built to dominate the most extreme terrain.
