Yamaha Side by Side Model Guide.
Wolverine - Viking - YXZ - Rhino

Current Yamaha Side by Side models fall into three categories. Recreation, Pure Sport, and Utility. You can find details of those models, plus coverage of the older Rhino models here. 

Recreation Side by Side Models


Yamaha Wolverine Camo model.

The Yamaha Wolverine was the long awaited replacement for the original Rhino. While the Rhino was a do it all model, the Wolverine is more focused on recreational use. Since Yamaha is introducing more specialized models for sport and utility, the Wolverine only has to worry about being fun for two in a value priced package.

Utility Side by Side Models


The Viking was Yamaha's first utility focused side by side. It's also the largest with a three seat capacity and plus size dimensions. For some inexplicable reason, it also has the smallest and oldest engine.

Tuned for low speed torque, it does handle the 600 lb. bed rating and 1500 lb tow capacity reasonably well.

Viking VI

The Viking was followed a year later by the introduction of the Viking VI, an even larger six seat utility side by side. With a look reminiscent of a stretch limo, there's no shortage of room. But with the same 686cc single cylinder engine, there isn't a surplus of power.
