SPECIAL EDITION 2 E T
Yamaha products transform
the SS Special Edition
By the staff of Dirt Wheels
❏ You have to hand it to Yamaha.
When the company set about
creating a pure sport UTV, it didn’t
build the same old thing every
other brand was building. With
the all-new YXZ1000R, there was
a lot to like, and the basic YXZ
platform got even easier to enjoy
with the release of the auto-clutch
Sport Shift models. Then came
the Special Edition versions with
fully adjustable Fox X2 suspension.
Despite being impressed with the
high-rpm, high-speed performance
of all of the YXZ variants, we have
not been nearly so excited about
threading tight, technical climbing
terrain with a Yamaha.
