Key Features:

* Raptor 700R Special Edition rolls in with special graphics and colors, atop YFZ-style front shocks and a rear end with separate high- and low-speed compression damping adjustability.
* All new in 2006, the Raptor 700R was named ATV Illustrated’s “Sport ATV of the Year” in its rookie season (a tie with our own YFZ450).
* Raptor 700R is designed to dominate in the widest range of riding environments, from tight woods to desert to dunes.
* A 686cc Yamaha fuel-injected engine makes this the most powerful sport ATV ever, with big torque right off idle transitioning into a fat midrange and monstrous top end.
* Yamaha fuel injection means consistently excellent engine performance in a wide range of conditions, elevations, and temperatures.
* Hybrid steel and aluminum frame with a Controlled Fill aluminum subframe and cast swingarm pivot combine to produce a super-strong structure and the lightest ATV in its class.
* Aggressive styling reflects Raptor 700R’s intent and YFZ inspired handling means it walks the walk too.
* Long-travel suspension—9.1 inches front, 10.1 rear—a cush seat and excellent ergonomics make the Raptor 700R comfortable to ride hard all day long.

New for 2007:

* Special Edition gets YFZ450-type piggyback front shocks and a rear shock adjustable for both high- and low-speed compression damping, as well as rebound and spring preload.
* New front brake master cylinder features an adjustable lever for increased comfort and feel.
* New, drilled rear brake disc reduces unsprung weight for improved suspension action and excellent braking feel.


* Forged lightweight piston, connecting rod and crankshaft in the 686cc engine are light and strong, for a hard-hitting, quick-revving powerplant that revs all the way to 9000 rpm. Dual counterbalancers keep it smooth.
* Yamaha fuel injection means consistently excellent engine performance in a wide range of conditions, elevations and temperatures.
* Competition-spec dry sump lubrication system boosts usable horsepower and keeps overall engine size more compact.
* Digital TCI w/16-bit electronic control unit controls fuel injection and ignition systems for consistent performance and fantastic throttle response.
* Reliable, pushbutton electric start in any gear adds extra convenience.
* Race-bred five-speed transmission with reverse, along with Raptor 700R’s monstrous powerband mean there’s a choice of gears in just about all situations.
* YZ-spec ratchet shifter ensures smooth, resistance-free shifting under power. Heavy-duty clutch features extra sturdy basket and plates designed to harness the Raptor 700R’s power.
* Easy-to-reach oil filter and tool-free air filter.


* State-of-the-art chassis combines a steel front section with an aluminum rear section and detachable subframe to create a super-strong structure as well as the lightest ATV in its class.
* Compact, CAD-designed chassis design creates the ideal wheelbase and low center of gravity for light, quick, super-accurate steering.
* Independent aluminum upper A-arm front suspension features preload-adjustable shocks and 9.1-inch travel for outstanding ride quality.
* YZ-style piggyback rear shock gives 10.1-inch wheel travel for maximum sport versatility with preload, compression and rebound adjustment.
* All-new cast aluminum swingarm carries a chain quick-adjust mechanism that takes most of the work out of that task.
* Handlebar-mounted flip-type parking brake lever and new rear brake caliper that adjust automatically.
* All-new high-performance 21x7-10 front and 20x10-9 rear Dunlop radials with a specially designed tread pattern deliver superb, class-leading traction for razor-sharp handling in a variety of terrain and conditions.
* Lightweight aluminum wheels help enhance suspension performance by reducing unsprung weight.
* YFZ450 twin-aluminum-piston front disc brakes and new rear disc deliver tremendous stopping power with less unsprung weight.
* YFZ450 45mm serrated footpegs provide excellent boot traction.
* Controlled Fill aluminum subframe is light and strong. So’s the composite front grab bar.

Additional Features:

* Long, YZ-style seat allows maximum rider comfort and movement with superb sport-riding ergonomics.
* YFZ450 30-watt multireflector halogen headlights set back in the front cowl add the perfect no-compromises sporting accent, and an LED taillight provides great visibility.
* Large-capacity, 2.9-gallon fuel tank and Yamaha fuel injection (YFI) means more time on the trail between fill-ups
