Wolverine X4: Long Term Test
UTV Action tested the 2018 Yamaha Wolverine X4 LE in the January, 2018, issue, and we’ve since received an X4 test unit for long-term testing. Over Easter weekend, we took the Wolverine X4 to Tombstone, the Town Too Tough to Die, for comfort and ride-quality testing in the Dragoon Mountains. Check out the original test at www.utvactionmag.com and look for the long-term test in the July, 2018, issue.
The non-adjustable high pressure gas shocks delivered a plush ride over rocks on the switchback trail leading to China Camp. Travel is less than nine inches, but it’s quality travel.
The X4 has sliding rear seats for carrying four adults or hauling up to 600 pounds.
Yamaha’s first twin-cylinder UTV engine has the largest sprag clutch yet and the most alternator power ever. The 847cc twin is super quiet and propels the X4 to 29 mph in Low and 52 mph in High.
