2017 Yamaha Raptor 700R special edition Hiper beadlocks
Big power and lightweight. A combination that makes any ATV rider take notice, come standard on the Raptor 700R. With a hybrid steel aluminum frame, Controlled-Fill aluminum sub-frame and cast aluminum swingarm, this combination produces a super-strong structure and the lightest ATV in its class.
A thick comfortable seat provides excellent comfort while the dual counter balancers, electric starting and reverse keep things nice and civilized when needed, but when it comes time to pull the trigger, the big bore Raptor 700R stands tall.
The YFZ-inspired handling of the Raptor 700R is incredible to experience while blasting through the woods. Thanks to the 9.1 inches of front travel and 10.1 inches out back, the trail bumps smooth out while the rider keeps things under control. With the combination of power, solid handling and a great suspension, this machine has to be experienced to be fully appreciated.
Smooth, Powerful Engine
The 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 while the dual counter balancers keep it smooth.
Advanced Fuel Injection
The Yamaha Fuel Injection (YFI) offers consistent and excellent engine performance in a wide range of conditions, elevations and temperatures.
The digital TCI with 32-bit electronic control unit controls fuel injection and ignition systems for consistent performance and fantastic throttle response.
Reliable push-button electric start in any gear adds extra convenience.
Race-bred five-speed transmission with reverse, along with the Raptor 700R’s monstrous powerband, means there’s a choice of gears in just about all situations. YZ-spec ratchet shifter ensures smooth, resistance-free shifting under power while the heavy-duty clutch features a sturdy basket and plates designed to harness the power.
Easy-to-reach oil filter and tool-free air filter provide added convenience.
The state-of-the-art chassis combines a steel front section with a YZ-style piggyback rear shock that gives 10.1-inch wheel travel along with preload adjustment.
YZ-style piggyback shocks are fully adjustable with high- and low-speed compression adjustability for maximum sport versatility along with preload and rebound adjustment. Front wheel travel is a plush 9.1 inches while the rear shock provides 10.1 inches of wheel travel.
Twin aluminum-piston front disc brakes deliver tremendous stopping power. Discs are drilled, which helps reduce unsprang weight for excellent suspension compliance, with an additional twin-piston rear brake for maximum stopping power.
Aggressive Maxxis® Tires
High-performance front 22×10-9 and 20×10-9 rear Maxxis® tires 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.
Wide Foot Pegs
Race-inspired 45mm serrated foot pegs provide excellent boot traction.
The Controlled-Fill aluminum subframe and composite front grab bar are both light yet strong.
The long, YZ-style seat allows maximum rider comfort and movement with superb sport-riding ergonomics.
High Visibility Lighting
Multi reflector 30-watt Krypton headlights that are set back in the front cowl add the perfect, no-compromises sporting accent, and an LED taillight provides great visibility.
Large Fuel Tank
Large-capacity, 2.9-gallon fuel tank and Yamaha Fuel Injection (YFI) mean more time on the trail between fill-ups.
Thumb throttle lever has a smooth shape for a feel riders will appreciate, creating less fatigue at the end of the day while the handlebar-mounted flip-type parking brake lever is simple to use.
