Key Features:

  • Raptor 700R Special Edition rolls in with a dealer installed aluminum GYTR™ front grab bar and heel guards, plus special graphics and colors.
  • New piggyback front shocks with high- and low-speed compression adjustment, just like the mighty YFZ450, for greater tunability.
  • 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 Yamaha 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.

Engine:

  • 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.

Chassis/Suspension:

  • 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 creates the ideal wheelbase for light, quick, super-accurate steering.
    Independent aluminum upper A-arm front suspension features new piggyback shocks with high- and low-speed compression adjustability, rebound and preload adjustability, and 9.1-inch travel for outstanding ride quality.
  • YZ-style piggyback rear shock gives 10.1-inch wheel travel with high- and low-speed compression adjustability, for maximum sport versatility, along with preload and rebound adjustment.
  • Front brake master cylinder features an adjustable lever for increased comfort and feel.
  • Drilled rear brake disc reduces unsprung weight for improved suspension action and excellent braking feel.
  • Cast aluminum swingarm carries an eccentric chain quick-adjust mechanism that takes most of the work out of that task.
  • Handlebar-mounted flip-type parking brake lever and rear brake caliper adjust automatically.
  • 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 rear disc deliver tremendous stopping power with less unsprung weight.

Additional Features:

  • Long, YZ-style seat allows maximum rider comfort and movement with superb sport-riding ergonomics.
  • YFZ450 30-watt multi-reflector 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.
