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 Special Edition 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 Special Edition Wolverine®RMAX™2 features SE graphics, with bodywork and interior painted to match the cut-and-sew seats. Footwell and console lighting adds to the style and comfort of the soft-touch interior with its centre-mount mirror, dash-mount USB charging socket and lighted switches.
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 unique character of this SE model shines through, blending next-level capability with an imposing appearance, thanks to its special colour scheme, aggressive front-end design and rugged tyres. The stealthy front LED headlights and "evil eye" marker lights add more to its distinctive looks, while the LED tail, brake and reverse lights provide excellent 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 front and rear FOX shocks help create this ideal set-up.
Yamaha’s Chip Controlled Throttle (YCC-T) works with our Ultramatic® transmission and On-Command systems to give perfect power delivery in any situation, via its 3-position D-Mode (Drive Mode) control. Choose Sports Mode for wide spaces and spirited driving - Trail Mode for a fun, relaxed ride – or Crawl Mode for slow-speed technical tasks like rock crawling.
Driving in low light conditions is a real pleasure in the Special Edition model, which features a sophisticated interior package with floor and console lighting, easy-to-locate blue LED-lit switch controls and instruments that are also back-lit in blue. This premium-level design approach adds to the attractive ambience of the automotive-quality cockpit.
Many special features deliver this machine’s incredible all-terrain ability - the 3-position D-Mode control and our Ultramatic® and On-Command systems give the perfect balance of engine braking and power delivery, the frame is strengthened for a solid and durable feel - and the chassis is matched to the high-spec suspension, so together they provide maximum rigidity.
The Wolverine ® RMAX™2 1000 models feature 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.
A multi-piece front bumper gives the Wolverine RMAX2® 1000 SE a very stylish look. With two welded steel tie-down points for trailering, factory-installed WARN® VRX 4500-pound winch, accessory brush guard and accessory pod light-mounting brackets, you'll confidently be able to take on the toughest terrain with complete confidence.
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!
