2016 Yamaha Wolverine R-Spec

There’s Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine, and then there’s the actual wolverine, a fearless, ferocious little skunk bear that’s usually up for any kind of challenge. We believe it’s that kind of wolverine that the 2016 Wolverine R-Spec is referencing.

Featuring a 708cc single-cylinder, liquid-cooled four-stroke engine and Yamaha’s Ultramatic CVT automatic transmission, this two-person vehicle promises unparalleled off-road action, with rough terrain melting beneath the class-leading 4-wheel independent suspension with KYB ultra-long-stroke nitrogen gas charged piggyback shocks. The car-like cabin maximizes comfort for the driver, and a simple dial twist takes you from 2-wheel drive to 4-wheel limited slip to 4-wheel full differential lock, for when the path is anything but cleared. Other features include a flat cargo bed with up to 300 lbs. payload, up to 1,500 lbs. towing capacity, exclusive 26-inch Maxxis Bighorn 2.0 tires, and a digital instrument panel with all the pertinent info. Choose from Steel Blue,  Hunter Green, or the Realtree Xtra Camo option. [Purchase]
