2021 Sport ATV models announced

Raptor 700R and YFZ450R revealed, YMA is pleased to reveal the new colours for the 2021 sport ATV range.

Both the 2021 Raptor 700 and YFZ450R will be available in Team Yamaha Blue. The YFZ450R is due in the second quarter of 2021 with the Raptor 700 arriving mid-year. 

Fresh from yet another Dakar Rally domination, Yamaha's potent and proven 686cc YFM700R offers superior style, comfort, and unmatched big-bore performance, adding up to the ultimate sport ATV for thrill-seekers and weekend warriors.

Its high performance, liquid-cooled, fuel-injected engine delivers enormous torque right off idle, transitioning into a powerful mid-range and monstrous top-end.

The Raptor 700’s power, combined with an advanced, lightweight hybrid steel and aluminium frame, controlled-fill aluminium subframe, and cast aluminium swingarm, results in a durable, rigid structure, offering a premier power-to-weight ratio while beating the competition as the lightest ATV in its class.

Rider-friendly features, such as a thick, plush seat, dual counter-balancers, electric start, and a reverse gear, bring comfort and convenience to all day adventures on the Raptor.

Suspension is adjustable for high- and low-speed compression and rebound. Colour for MY21 is Team Yamaha Blue, and ready to ride pricing is $14,649 inc GST.

The YFZ450R is the most technologically advanced sport ATV on the market today, with a quickrevving, 449cc fuel-injected engine and titanium five-valve cylinder head delivering abundant power. A weldless high performance frame is designed from lightweight aluminium with a high tension steel bottom frame allowing the engine to sit lower for excellent mass-centralisation. Suspension components and settings further reduce weight while providing light, sharp handling and rider comfort.

Comfort and convenience are further enhanced with an assist-and-slipper clutch, reducing clutch lever effort for less fatigue, while also increasing clutch plate pressure and reducing engine braking for faster cornering, particularly while downshifting. Further improving lap times, the YFZ450R’s ergonomic bodywork allows the rider increased room to shift their weight in the corners and leverage the race-inspired padded seat to maximise traction and momentum. YFZ450R is the current US ATV MX Pro title holder with Chad Wienen. It is available in Team Yamaha Blue for $15,249 inc GST ready to ride.
