Yamaha Motor Corp., USA, announced pricing and retail availability of the new 2019 YXZ1000R and YXZ1000R Sport Shift pure sport side-by-side vehicles. The new 2019 models introduced in June are now coming off the Yamaha assembly line in Newnan, Georgia, and shipping to dealers nationwide.
Updated for 2019 to deliver the ultimate high-performance off-road adventure on a wide variety of terrain – from open deserts and dunes, to muddy trails and rough, rocky terrain – the base model available in Graphite with cast aluminum wheels starts at $18,999 MSRP for both the full-manual and Sport Shift models. Special Edition versions are available in Team Yamaha Blue with color matched interior and true bead-lock wheels, starting at a $20,599 MSRP for standard and SS models. The other Special Edition YXZ1000R SS available in Ultra White features a suntop, true bead-lock wheels, accessory lights and more starting at $21,799 MSRP.
For those who require even more punch, the Genuine Yamaha Technology Racing turbo kit designed specifically for the 2019 YXZ line installs quicker and easier due to the added GYTR connecting rods now coming standard in the engine. The GYTR Turbo kit uses the renowned Garrett GT2860RS turbo to meet Yamaha’s high standards of durability, reliability and performance, while also being the only turbo in the industry that is CARB, EPA and 50-state compliant for 2016-2018 model year YXZs, with 2019s soon to follow.
The YXZ1000R is powered by Yamaha’s industry-first 998-cc triple-cylinder engine, and an enhanced five-speed manual transmission, delivering the industry’s only direct-connection SxS driving experience.
New features for 2019 include lowered gearing with a tighter first gear, ideal for technical riding and sharper torque right off the bottom; GYTR connecting rods, making it easier, faster and less expensive to install the GYTR turbo kit designed specifically for the YXZ; and enhanced new body styling and design with class-leading driver visibility.
