For 2017 Yamaha hit us again with another exciting sport UTV, the 2017 YXZ1000R SS (Sport Shift) is the first and so far only SxS vehicle combine pure-sport performance with a high tech paddle shifting experience. The new side by side has the same industry-first 3-cylinder 998cc engine as the original YXZ but now features Yamaha’s new Sport Shift technology.
The new SS technology is a 5-speed sequential shift manual transmission with an automatic clutch system and paddle shifters. It eliminates the need for a clutch pedal as well as taking your foot off the gas while shifting. Mounted to the steering column for ultimate control, the paddle shifters are synched to an advanced automatic clutch system, Yamaha’s Chip Controlled Shift technology, so you can enjoy the sporty performance and direct connection of the YXZ manual transmission.
Another exciting feature on the new machine aside from the fully adjustable, long travel FOX® 2.5 Podium Shocks with 16” of travel in front and 17” out back, is the all-new “Launch System”. The Launch System is similar to “dropping the clutch” in a manual vehicle with a clutch pedal.
As excited as we are about the new YXZ1000R SS, we’re as equally as excited for the aftermarket parts and accessories for it. They’re a great way to personalize your machine for a custom look and to tailor to your personal needs. As the new pure-sport SxS floods the market, the aftermarket products will follow, at Side By Side Stuff you can find a wide variety of items including wheels, tires, audio equipment, windshields, mirrors and more; from reputable brands you can trust.
