Yamaha Motor Corp. released its new off-road Wolverine RMAX 1000 line of two- and four-seat Side-by-Side (SxS) models.

The all-new Wolverine RMAX2 1000 and RMAX4 1000 Side-by-Sides include Standard, XT-R Edition (XT-R), and Limited Edition (LE) models set in an all-new and impressive chassis featuring a new engine, new Yamaha Drive-Mode (D-Mode) power-delivery system and FOX iQS suspension technology. The RMAX 1000 models join Yamaha’s Wolverine family of recreational-based SxS vehicles, which includes the enhanced 2021 Wolverine X2 and X4 R-Spec and XT-R configurations.

“The all-new Wolverine RMAX2 1000 and RMAX4 1000 models are stout, powerful and the most off-road capable recreational Side-by-Sides on the market today,” said Steve Nessl, Yamaha motorsports group marketing manager. “These all-new Wolverine models are proudly assembled in the U.S. to deliver next-level comfort, versatility and Yamaha’s legendary durability and reliability. The RMAX 1000 lineup answers the call to what off-road enthusiasts have been demanding: extreme performance, capability, versatility and durability.”

The RMAX4 1000 is armed with Yamaha-exclusive Maxxis Carnage radial tires on XT-R and LE models and GBC Dirt Commanders on standard versions.
