Advanced, Sport-Focused Suspension
Taking the Wolverine RMAX2 1000 Sport to another level of performance, a new sport-tuned suspension features dual spring Fox 2.0 shocks, now with full high- and low-speed compression adjustability along with preload adjustment. In addition to greater adjustability, this advanced new Fox suspension also offers a more taut, sporty feel and increased high-speed bottoming resistance—and does this without sacrificing low-speed comfort and compliance—giving owners the best of both worlds. The Wolverine RMAX2 1000 Sport boasts best-in-class 13.8 inches of ground clearance, along with an impressive 14.2 inches of front suspension travel and 16.9 inches of rear travel—so it’s ready to tackle just about anything you can throw at it.
New Beadlock Wheels
In a first for the Yamaha RMAX line, the new Wolverine RMAX2 1000 Sport comes with factory-installed 14-inch beadlock wheels. With aggressive styling and bold Yamaha Blue accents they not only look great, they improve tire retention and increase driver confidence while navigating rough off-road conditions.
GBC® Terra Master Tires
Further adding to the proven off-road capability is another first for the Yamaha RMAX line—new asymmetrical 30-inch GBC® Terra Master tires. Working in conjunction with GBC, these high-performance tires are tuned specifically to match the power, suspension and handling characteristics of the Wolverine RMAX2 1000 Sport. The unique asymmetrical tread design gives owners two different tread configuration options—one side for soft to intermediate terrain, or flip the tire and the other side is tailored towards intermediate to hard terrain. Additionally, the GBC Terra Master® tires are 10-ply rated for exceptional durability and puncture resistance—and come in a square tire setup offers one-spare-fits-all convenience.
Aggressive Sport Styling
An aggressive stance and bold new styling features a Team Yamaha Blue and dark blue exterior graphics package, inspired by Yamaha’s championship winning race teams. The striking look establishes this new model’s sporting intentions from the first glance. Stealthy front LED headlights, "evil eye" marker lights and sleek new Yamaha Blue color-matched wheels paired with rugged high performance tires further enhance the aggressive style.
Premium Sport Interior
Wolverine RMAX2 1000 Sport boasts many of the same premium interior features found in the RMAX XT-R and Limited Edition models, including automotive-style soft touchpoints, an easy-adjust high-quality passenger handhold, center-mount rearview mirror, brushed aluminum accents, color-matched blue interior lighting and striking, ultra-plush cut & sew seats in handsome Yamaha Blue—making sure you and your passengers can tackle rugged backcountry adventures in comfort and style.

For accessibility in low-light conditions, the new Wolverine RMAX2 1000 Sport features an interior light package to easily navigate controls. The blue LED lighted switches, floor lights and console lighting complement the automotive-inspired cockpit and are color-matched to the new blue-backlit meter for a high-quality feel and premium look.
The three-position D-Mode combines with Yamaha’s Ultramatic® and On-Command® systems to deliver the perfect balance of engine braking and power delivery for maximum off-road ability.

The wheel base had been optimized to provide a balanced feel and provides the best contact-to-ground feel for optimum handling in any terrain.
