The paddle shifters on the steering column of the Yamaha
YXZ are very well designed to allow you to be able to shift
gears while turning the wheel quickly.
The gauge has been changed from 2016 to have a black background and a coolant temperature gauge. The SS version has
a launch-system indicator and a half-engaged clutch light.
Yamaha’s YXZ1000R SS is new for 2017. The transmission utilizes an automatic clutch instead of a manual foot clutch.
