Engine:

  • High-Tech Engine Designed for Aggressive Trail Riding
    Powered by a double overhead cam (DOHC), 4-valve, fuel-injected 708cc engine, the Wolverine R-Spec EPS SE is tuned to optimize torque, power delivery and engine character to get through even the most challenging off-road terrain.
  • Optimized High-Performance Ultramatic® Transmission
    Ultramatic fully automatic transmission with high, low, reverse and neutral provides the industry’s most durable CVT transmission. The one-way sprag clutch produces the industry’s most natural-feeling all-wheel engine braking and eliminates “freewheeling” found in some competitive models. A centrifugal clutch maintains constant belt tension and eliminates slipping reducing belt wear and improving durability.
  • Yamaha’s Exclusive On-Command® 4WD
    On-Command puts the driver in control of 2WD, 4WD or 4WD full diff lock with a conveniently mounted and easy to use dash-mounted dial.
  • Tuned Tool-Less Air Intake
    High-volume air intake optimizes power character and it is tucked under the hood to keep it out of the elements. The oversized foam air-filter is reusable and accessible without tools.
  • Simplified Servicing
    Gear, coolant, and engine oil drain holes have been designed into the full-length skid plates which make maintaining and servicing the Wolverine R-Spec EPS SE very convenient.

Chassis/Suspension:

  • Aggressive and Agile Chassis
    The front and rear of the chassis—approach and departure angles—are tapered on the sides and bottom of the vehicle to reduce potential contact on tight trails and in rough terrain. With an 81” wheelbase and 11.4” of ground clearance, the Wolverine R-Spec EPS SE is designed for best-in-class terrainability. The body design and low hood gives drivers maximum visibility to navigate tight, technical trails and challenging terrain.
  • Durable Chassis Protection
    The Wolverine R-Spec EPS SE chassis is more compact than the Viking®, and is optimized to conquer tight, difficult terrain. The SE-exclusive full underbody aluminum skidplate lets it effortlessly absorb impacts and cross obstacles that might hold others back. Matching aluminum A-arm guards protect the suspension and steering systems, too.
  • Class-Leading Suspension
    Fully adjustable piggyback KYB® shocks with 9.7” of travel in the front and 10.6” of travel out back deliver excellent suspension and rider comfort when hitting the trails. Adjustable settings include high and low-speed compression damping, rebound and preload adjustments.
  • 11.4” of Ground Clearance
    Front wide-arc A-arms and full-length skid plates maximize durability and terrainability, providing up to 11.4” of ground clearance. Flares on the frame protect the rear wheels from oncoming trees and rocks.
  • High-Performance Tires
    Exclusive 26-inch Maxxis® Bighorn® 2.0 tires provide optimum traction, durability, comfort and steering precision. SE-exclusive 12-inch aluminum wheels feature bead lock plates for maximum tire durability, especially in challenging terrain.
  • Class-Leading Power Steering
    Speed-sensitive electric power steering increases comfort and handling, especially in challenging terrain or when driving in four-wheel diff-lock mode. The Wolverine R-Spec EPS SE also sets itself apart with a high-quality, soft-grip steering wheel for additional grip and feeling of control.
  • All-Wheel Disc Brakes with Wet Parking Brake
    Large diameter front and rear wheel disc brakes provide unsurpassed stopping power with twin piston calipers for strong, predictable overall brake feeling. Drilled rotors increase cooling and reduce noise, plus the wet parking brake is completely sealed, so it’s protected from the elements and virtually maintenance-free.
  • High-Capacity Tow Hitch
    Standard heavy-duty 2-inch receiver-style hitch can tow up to 1500 pounds.
  • Enclosed Cabin
    Rotomolded doors help keep mud and water on the trail and a standard suntop offers additional protection from the elements, while special fender extensions on the SE provide even more protections from roost and mud.
  • 300-Pound Cargo Capacity
    The tough, molded composite bed is rated to haul 300 pounds of gear, with a design that allows you to reposition the tailgate to handle different sized loads… and a 1” divider notch provides even more versatility. In the bed are six steel tie-down hooks to secure cargo.

Additional Features:
