Key Features:

  • 79cc of reliable, electric-start four-stroke fun fed 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 25.6-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.


  • Feisty 79cc air-cooled, SOHC four-stroke single puts out smooth, reliable 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.
