CYPRESS, Calif. June 6,
2008 Yamaha Motor Corp., U.S.A., maker
of some of the most popular sport ATVs on the
planet, is extending its family of Raptors to
include an all-new Raptor 90 youth model.
The new, affordable youth model is styled after
the industry leading Raptor 700R and packs
Yamaha quality and performance into a compact
package for novice and youth riders (recommended
for riders 12 years and older only, and always
with adult supervision).
The Raptor 90, starting at $2,299 (MSRP), is
a new machine from the ground up and is powered
by an 88cc forced air cooled engine with fully
automatic CVT transmission -- the new rider can
push the start button and go without worrying
about a clutch and shifting gears. Parents
will appreciate the adjustable CDI rev limiter,
which allows a supervisor to adjust power output
as the rider becomes more experienced.
The Raptor 90 features double A-arm front
suspension with 4.4 inches of travel. Out
back is a swing arm with 3.3 inches of travel.
Both the front and rear suspension set-ups
feature five-way pre-load adjustable shocks,
allowing for adjustment as the rider grows and
carries more weight. A hydraulic disc
brake is in the rear, dual sealed drum brakes
are in the front, and the ATV rides on low
profile Maxxis tires.
Taking style and functionality from the bigger
Raptors, the 90 features a molded front grab bar
similar to the Raptor 700R and integrated full
floorboards for a more comfortable ride.
The 2009 Raptor 90 is available in Team Yamaha
Blue/White (MSPR $2,299). A Black/White
version (MSRP $2,349) is also available with a
dual graphic kit. The options graphics
come in red or pink and can be added and
replaced according to the riders preference.
The Raptor 90 will be in Yamaha dealerships
nationwide beginning September 2008.
