some; however, racers will want to
upgrade the suspension in a hurry.
Our lucky test driver who had the
opportunity to get behind the wheel
came away very impressed with the
overall build quality of the Wolverine.
It’s sporty to a point and quick enough
to put a smile on your face for sure.
The Wolverine is no racer, as it’s
intended for trail explorers that may
have been introduced to the sport
in the days of the Rhino and have
been waiting patiently for another
offering from Yamaha since its extinc-
tion. The Wolverine will not set the
world on fire, but it will start a small
war between the other Japanese
At the rear of the Wolverine an independent dual-A-arm suspension setup offers
10. 6 inches of travel. It’s a little less travel than the Arctic Cat 700 but works just as
well. Disc brakes are found on all four corners.
The unique cargo area is not a dump bed and is made of plastic to save weight,
keeping it in the sport category. The tail section can be removed or moved forward
if not in use.
