FEATURES & BENEFITS

The all-new 660R Raptor-style bodywork turns this entry-level machine into one wicked-looking ride. All-new YZ-style grips add extra comfort and a sporty finish.

Engine:
Feisty 79cc air-cooled single puts out smooth, reliable 4-stroke power perfectly tuned to the rider starting to hone his or her ATV skills. Class-exclusive** shaft drive is virtually maintenance-free and superior to the chain drives found on some competitive models. Easy, push-button start in any gear adds greater convenience. Adjustable throttle limiter allows a parent or adult supervisor to match the engine’s power output to the rider’s skill level. 3-speed transmission with automatic clutch ensures smooth, easy shifting and lets the entry-level rider focus on the trail by eliminating a hand-operated clutch. Rugged muffler with USFS-approved spark arrestor ensures quiet, environmentally safe operation. Automatic cam chain tensioner helps reduce need for engine maintenance and extend engine life.

Chassis/Suspension:
Leading-arm front suspension with 2.2" of travel smoothes out the trail for a plush, confidence-inspiring ride and more responsive steering. Swingarm and a single rear shock with 2.2" of travel further enhances rider comfort with smooth, bump-absorbing performance. Class-longest wheelbase at 40.6" helps accommodate a wide range of rider sizes and enhances rider comfort with greater legroom and roomier ergonomics not quickly outgrown as the rider gets older. 3.9" of ground clearance. Fully sealed front and rear drum brakes keep out water and debris, providing strong, reliable stopping power. Beefy 18 x 7-7 front and 18 x 8-7 rear knobby tires offer excellent traction and help boost ground clearance.

Additional Features:
Wide, cushy seat and full-size handlebars ensure superb, all-day comfort and minimize fatigue for even the biggest riders. Large, class-leading fuel capacity -- 1.8 gallons -- increases range, which means less fill-ups and more fun out on the trail. Rugged, wide fenders with class-exclusive rear mud flaps deliver outstanding mud and splash protection to ensure a dry, comfortable ride.

**Includes 60-90cc ATVs.
