2021 YAMAHA YXZ1000R SS/SE/XT-R
The 2021 Yamaha YXZ1000R SS/SE/XT-R are three versions of the YXZ Sport Shift (SS). These 64″ wide machines have a geared five-speed transmission with an automatic clutch rather than the belt-type CVTs found on most UTVs. You shift gears with sports car-type paddle shifters and the system even automatically downshifts if you forget to. Upgraded pedals and paddle shifters improve control. Lower gearing, revised shock and EPS tuning , 29-inch, 8-ply Bighorn tires on wheels with a 4/156-bolt pattern, a rear radiator and a new cage were added in 2019, making the YXZ faster and easier to drive in lower speed, technical trails and wide open western conditions. The SE gets high-end Fox Podium RC2 dual spring shocks with adjustable crossovers, beadlock wheels, upgraded center and interior lighting, extra underbody protection, contrast-stitched seats, high-spec interior controls, roof, rear view mirror and Yamaha Black or white painted bodywork.
The XT-R model comes with all the cool stuff you get with the YXZ SS SE, plus Covert Green painted bodywork, upgraded lights, contrasting beadlock wheels, a custom front grab bar and Warn winch, roof, contrast stitched seats and Maxxis Carnage tires.
