CAPABILITY

  • Smooth and Powerful Twin-Cylinder Engine
    The Wolverine X4 850 XT-R is powered by an 847cc DOHC eight-valve parallel-twin engine featuring a full range of advanced Yamaha technology. 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.

    Designed for maneuverability, the Wolverine X4 850 XT-R chassis is super agile, making tight trails a breeze with lightweight steering to select the ideal line when tackling obstacles. With an upswept underbody design, the Wolverine X4 850 XT-R boasts plenty of ground clearance and big approach and departure angles to clear challenging 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 X4 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.
  • Class-Leading Electric Power Steering
    Yamaha’s Electric Power Steering (EPS) provides the industry’s best balance of steering assist and positive feedback with light steering and speed-sensitive response for minimized fatigue.
  • Advanced Self-Leveling Suspension
    The Wolverine X4 850 XT-R features well-damped suspension at all four corners for enhanced chassis control and handling feel. High performance KYB® piggyback front shocks built specifically for Yamaha are fully adjustable with spring preload, rebound, and high- and low-speed compression damping, allow tuning to suit a wide range of driver preferences and conditions. Advanced self-leveling rear shocks automatically adjust to changes in vehicle load. Not only does this system maintain ideal chassis geometry and eliminate the need to adjust shock preload, the system is completely self-contained and requires no heavy air compressors or electric motors.
  • Powerful All-Wheel Disc Brakes
    Large 207mm vented disc brakes with two-piston calipers provide exceptional stopping power on all four wheels with excellent feel.
  • Maximum Versatility
    In addition to the ability to comfortably seat four adults, the Wolverine X4 850 XT-R features an ingenious storage system for cargo flexibility.
