CAPABILITY

Forged pistons and connecting rods ensure durable high-rpm performance with Yamaha’s 270° Crossplane Concept Crankshaft for linear torque development and excellent power throughout the rpm range. To improve efficiency, the engine features a dry-sump design for a more compact layout and an offset cylinder block to reduce friction losses. Rubber engine mounts and a geared counterbalancer ensure smooth running from idle to redline.
  • Responsive and Reliable Ultramatic® Transmission
    Yamaha’s Ultramatic® transmission is the most advanced—and durable—CVT drive system available. An automatic centrifugal clutch maintains constant belt tension for reduced wear, and a sprag clutch delivers natural all-wheel engine braking.
  • On-Command® 4WD
    Industry-exclusive three-position On-Command® 4WD system lets you switch between 2WD, limited-slip 4WD and fully locked differential 4WD. Unlike competitors’ automatic 4WD systems, On-Command® puts the driver in full control to make the most of available traction in various types of terrain.

For enhanced response in tough terrain, the rear A-arms minimize camber changes across the suspension travel.
  • Yamaha Chip Controlled-Throttle (YCC-T)
    The Wolverine X2 850 XT-R engine utilizes YCC-T®, a drive-by-wire system that converts the driver’s commands into digital throttle control. Throttle response is further improved thanks to a quick-response servo motor, precision fuel injectors and a high-volume airbox with two-stage air filtration.
