The Ultimate Pure Sport SxS
Upgraded for 2019, the YXZ1000R™ SS is the most focused high-performance side-by-side in the world. Changes to nearly every system on board ensure that the YXZ® brings this level of performance to every ride, no matter the terrain, from dunes to desert, tight woods and muddy trails.
Unique Engine with Sport Shift Transmission
Just as powerful and exclusive as when Yamaha unveiled the first YXZ1000R SS in 2017, the 2019 YXZ1000R SS features a high-revving, high-output inline-triple engine mated to Yamaha’s Sport Shift, a sequential 5-speed manual transmission featuring Yamaha Chip Controlled Shift (YCC-S) technology. The result is a Pure Sport driving experience unmatched by anything on the market.
Big engines make headlines, but it’s the chassis that does the real work. The YXZ1000R SS flatters its driver with one of the most agile, adjustable and capable side-by-side chassis designs ever seen in a production side-by-side.
Comfort is control when driving hard, and the YXZ1000R SS is built around this concept. The driver and passenger are kept low in the chassis, with exceptional visibility. The cabin offers roomy high-back seats with plenty of adjustability for the driver.
Not only does the YXZ1000R SS come standard with Yamaha’s famous reputation for reliability, it’s also assembled in the USA and engineered with a full range of factory accessory options, so that not only can you customize a YXZ1000R SS to your needs, you know it will meet and exceed your expectations for years to come.
The YXZ1000R SS proved its Pure Sport performance time and time again. For 2019, a range of enhancements push the envelope no matter where you drive. Drivers looking to tear up gnarly woods and trails will appreciate the lowered gearing with a tighter first gear, ideal for technical riding and sharper torque right off the bottom. And folks looking to blast through the desert will love the beefy new engine internals, which makes adding Yamaha’s turbocharger kit easier than ever.
New Cooling System
Big power means big heat, so for 2019, the YXZ1000R SS uses an all-new cooling system that not only ensures proper cooling during the toughest conditions, but is designed to ensure the cabin remains comfortable and the radiator stays clear of mud and debris.
New Wheels and Suspension
To ensure the YXZ1000R SS is able to make the most of its roaring three-cylinder engine, the driver needs to get traction across a range of conditions, so the 2019 YXZ1000R SS brings updated suspension settings to control the larger 29-inch Maxxis® Bighorn® tires for exceptional grip.
Larger All-Wheel Disc Brakes
The YXZ1000R SS offers fantastic braking thanks to upgraded, larger-diameter rotors for 2019. These improved brakes increase maximum braking and boost feel for superior deceleration.
Goes fast, looks fast. An updated frame underpins sharper styling from nose to tail, while still ensuring class-leading driver visibility with the aggressively low hood design.
