The tight trail conquering Wolverine X2 R‑Spec boasts proven off‑road performance with superior capability, comfort and confidence.
Smooth and Powerful Twin-Cylinder Engine
The Wolverine X2 R-Spec is powered by an 847cc DOHC, eight-valve, parallel twin-cylinder motor that features the full range of Yamaha’s advanced performance technologies. Forged pistons and connecting rods ensure durable high-rpm performance, with Yamaha’s 270° Crossplane Concept Crankshaft for linear torque development and excellent power throughout the rpm range. To improve efficiency, the engine features a dry-sump design for a more compact layout and offset cylinder block to reduce friction loss, while rubber engine mounts and a geared counterbalancer ensures smooth running from idle to redline.
Yamaha’s Ultramatic transmission is the most advanced—and durable—CVT drive system available. An automatic centrifugal clutch maintains constant belt tension for reduced belt wear and a sprag clutch delivers natural all-wheel engine braking. In the Wolverine X2 R-Spec, a robust clutching system features an oversized belt for durability under aggressive riding, while still maintaining low cruising rpm for smooth, quiet running.
Yamaha’s renowned On-Command 4WD system lets you switch between 2WD, limited-slip 4WD and a fully locked differential 4WD. Unlike competitors’ automatic 4WD systems, On-Command puts the driver in full control to make the most of available traction in any sort of terrain.
Compact and Nimble Chassis
Designed for maneuverability, the Wolverine X2 R-Spec chassis is super agile, making tight trails a breeze, with lightweight steering to select the ideal line when tackling obstacles. With an upswept underbody design and wide-arc A-arms, the Wolverine X2 R-Spec boasts big approach and departure angles to clear challenging terrain, with plenty of clearance to get in and out of the most remote areas.
Yamaha Chip Controlled Throttle (YCC-T)
The Wolverine X2 R-Spec engine utilizes YCC-T®, a drive-by-wire system that converts the driver’s commands into precise throttle
control—Real World Tech for impeccable engine response. Throttle response is further enhanced thanks to a ‘high-response’ servo motor for ultrafast throttle application, 12-hole fuel injectors, and a highvolume airbox with two-stage air filtration.
Class-Leading Electric Power Steering
Yamaha’s Electric Power Steering (EPS) provides the industry’s best balance of steering assist and positive feedback from the trail, with light steering, speed-sensitive steering response, and minimal fatigue.
The Wolverine X2 R-Spec features advanced suspension technology typically found only on sports-focused side-by-sides, for enhanced chassis control and adjustability with awesome response and handling feel. The KYB® piggyback shocks are fully adjustable for spring preload, rebound damping, and both high- and low-speed compression damping, which gives the Wolverine X2 R-Spec an exceptionally tunable ride character, whether the day calls for cargo carrying or trail blasting.
Powerful All-Wheel Disc Brakes
Large 207mm vented disc brakes with two-piston calipers provide exceptional stopping power on all four wheels, with excellent feel and minimal noise.
The Wolverine X2 R-Spec features an all-new tilting cargo bed to simplify hauling duties. Built with hydraulic assistance and a robust latch system, the bed transports up to 600 pounds, with multiple tiedown points to secure cargo or attach accessories. Add in a full 2,000 pounds of towing capacity thanks to the standard 2-in receiver, and the Wolverine X2 R-Spec is ready to get to work when you are.
Adventure Pro Ready
The Wolverine X2 R-Spec comes pre-wired for Yamaha’s exclusive Adventure Pro GPS system, unlocking the next level of trail-ready
navigation. This state-of-the-art GPS unit combines a range of functions into a single rugged 7-in full-color display. Search,
download, record and share trail routes. Challenge your friends to time trials on saved courses. And with Yamaha’s uniquely integrated
software, the Adventure Pro system also communicates with the Wolverine X2 R-Spec's ECU to display vehicle data and warnings with exceptional clarity.
Smooth, Quiet Powertrain
Thanks to helical-cut drivetrain gearing, the rubber-mounted and counterbalanced engine, and a variety of noise- and vibration-reducing inserts around the cabin, the Wolverine X2 R-Spec is one of the smoothest and quietest recreational side-by-sides ever built. Sneak through trails without disturbing nearby animals, or simply enjoy the improved refinement after a long day riding on the trail.
Roomy, Practical Ergonomics
With high-backed seats, each with shoulder bolsters and automotivestyle three-point seat belts, the Wolverine X2 R-Spec provides a comfortable perch for driver and passenger. A standard sun top, multiple cup holders, high-traction floorboards and adjustable driver seat and steering column round out the amenities.
The Wolverine X2 R-Spec is one of the smoothest and quietest side-bysides ever made. Noise, vibration and harshness—NVH in engineering terms—is minimalized thanks to the refinement of the twin-cylinder powerplant as well as an array of specially-formed body panels and insulating dampers throughout the chassis.
Thanks to the well-developed suspension tuning, the Wolverine X2 RSpec provides a plush, well-damped riding feel that further improves cabin comfort.
Superior Mud Protection
Full-enclosed doors and high, wide fenders ensure that mud, rocks and sticks all stay outside the cabin so you and your passenger can enjoy the ride even more.
The Wolverine X2 R-Spec features LED headlights and taillights, for brilliant visibility, long life and minimal power draw.
With nearly 600 watts of electrical output from the engine, a standard 12V DC port and multiple pre-wired accessory switches, the Wolverine X2 R-Spec is ready for a wide range of accessories and add-ons.
Industry’s Most Durable CVT
The Wolverine X2 R-Spec transmission uses its own cooling intake to maintain proper temperatures, an oversized belt to handle the torque of the large motor, and Yamaha’s unique sprag clutch to maintain constant belt tension—the end result is a drivetrain built for years of trouble-free service that leaves the competition in the dust.
Reliable Engine Lubrication and Cooling
With a large oil capacity circulating in the dry-sump system, a liquidcooled oil cooler, and a large radiator with integrated blower, the Wolverine X2 R-Spec powerplant is able to handle the toughest jobs without complaint.
Full Underbody Skid Plates
Skid plates protect the entire underbody of the Wolverine X2 R-Spec, from the front differential to the rear gear case, to ensure gnarly terrain doesn’t stop you. And as with other Yamaha machines, the skid plates include convenient service points to access fluid drain locations without removing the guards.
The all-digital meter gives the driver a complete picture at a glance, with a large dimmable readout. Vehicle status and warnings are clearly displayed, along with easily accessible odometers and trip and hour meters. And with the Adventure Pro system installed, additional vehicle data is clearly displayed on a brilliantly crisp, full-color 7-in display.
Speed Management System
The Wolverine X2 R-Spec also comes standard with a Speed Management System which allows the owner to limit the vehicle to a top speed of 25 mph, ideal for work sites or other special operating conditions.
Built Real World Tough™, Assembled in the USA
As with other Yamaha ATVs and Side-by-Sides, the Wolverine X2 RSpec is assembled in the USA to meet Yamaha’s exacting standards for durability and reliability.
