Key Features:
  • 79cc of reliable, electric-start four-stroke fun feed into a three-speed gearbox with automatic clutch, making the Raptor 80 a great choice for those getting started or moving up.
  • Class-exclusive shaft drive is virtually maintenance-free; no messing with chain adjustment and lubrication.
  • Low 26.3-inch seat height for quick, balanced steering and optimal rider comfort.
  • Large, class-leading fuel capacity—1.8 gallons—increases range, which means less fill-ups and more fun out on the trail.

Engine:

  • Feisty 79cc air-cooled single puts out smooth, reliable four-stroke power perfectly tuned to the rider starting to hone his or her ATV skills.
  • Adjustable throttle limiter allows a parent or adult supervisor to match the engine’s power output to the rider’s skill level, and an intake restrictor plate can be removed as skill increases.
  • Three-speed transmission with automatic clutch ensures smooth shifting and lets the entry-level rider focus on the trail by eliminating a hand-operated clutch.
  • Rugged muffler with USFS-approved spark arrestor for quiet operation.
  • Automatic cam chain tensioner helps reduce the need for engine maintenance and extends engine life.

  • Rear swingarm and a single rear shock with 2.2 inches of travel further enhance ride comfort and traction.

  • 3.9 inches of ground clearance clears all sorts of obstacles.
  • 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.
