Yamaha’s long experience and knowledge of creating machines with a wide range of capabilities has influenced our development teams to create a striking Special Edition model of our next-generation off-road adventurer – This Side-by-Side knows how to deliver and surprise to the max.
The Wolverine® RMAX™2 1000 follows our development philosophy of “Jin-Ki Kanno” – which translates from the Japanese as ”the exhilaration of being one with the machine”. The result is a super-capable off-roader, in which both driver and passenger feel confident to master the very toughest terrain.
The resilient plastic body of the standard Wolverine® RMAX™2 1000 is complemented by the style and comfort of the coloured, soft-touch interior (knee and centre console) with a pair of special X2 seats, a tilt steering wheel with 17 degrees of adjustment and protective sun top.
The stunning power of the 999cc, DOHC, 8-valve, parallel twin-cylinder engine delivers class-leading, ultra-smooth performance across the power band - and with the red line at 8,500 rpm, aggressive and spirited riding is what this machine is all about. For complete peace of mind, our legendary durability and reliability is the hallmark of every Yamaha engine.
The Wolverine® RMAX™2 1000 blends next-level capability with an imposing appearance, thanks to its eye-catching colour, aggressive front-end design and rugged tyres. The stealthy front LED headlights and "Evil Eye" marker lights add even more to its distinctive looks, while the LED taillight, brake light, and reverse light provide added visibility.
The heavy-duty suspension is designed to provide a great handling blend: maximum articulation in low-speed situations - a balanced feel when trail riding - and maximum bottoming resistance with a higher-speed damping feel when maneuvering aggressively. The wide-arc A-arms paired with easily adjustable FOX® shocks provide the perfect front and rear combination.
The Wolverine® RMAX™2 1000 features a tilting cargo bed to simplify hauling duties. Built with hydraulic assistance and a robust latch system, the bed transports up to 272 kg with multiple steel tie-down points to secure cargo or attach accessories. Add in a full 907 kg of towing capacity through a standard 2-inch receiver, and the Wolverine® is ready to get to work whenever you are.
The chunky 14” aluminum wheels are shod with 30” GBC Dirt Commander 2 tyres arranged in a "square” set-up so you only need to carry a single spare. These special radial tyres are developed specifically for the Wolverine RMAX™ 1000 to provide precise steering character and comfortable yet durable sidewall feel. The tread pattern design provides great traction, whatever the terrain.
To make it easier to get in and out of the Wolverine RMAX™ 1000, the front doors now feature an enlarged opening – in fact, it’s 63% wider than previous Wolverine models. For even more comfort, the front shoulder bolsters have been re-designed to enlarge the space available for the upper body – so riders large and small can enjoy a more comfortable, secure feeling on the trail.
With its substantial component parts and solid build quality, this machine provides a truly confidence-inspiring ownership experience. As examples: Carbon steel front differential and rear gear case; large DAC (Double Angular Contact) wheel bearings; forged sway bar links; wide-pitch, single-stamped A-arms – the list goes on – and so will your all-terrain activities!
The aggressively styled and rugged front bumper design isn’t all show and no substance! Along with its striking looks come two welded steel trailering and tie-down points and an integrated winch plate. An add-on brush guard and pod-light mounting brackets are also available as accessories.
