The new 2019 Yamaha Wolverine X2 side-by-side combines proven off-road capability and performance with real-world comfort in a compact, nimble chassis. The Wolverine X2 features a comfortable two-person cab configuration, along with a newly designed 600-pound–rated piston-assist dump bed and an automotive-style single-hand operated tailgate. It also has an impressive 2,000-pound towing capacity. A vibration-free 847cc twin cylinder engine powers the Wolverine. Forged pistons and connecting rods ensure durable high-rpm performance, and Yamaha’s 270-degree crankshaft format allows for linear torque development. The design features an eight-valve parallel twin-cylinder engine.

Yamaha’s driver-centric real-world tech includes a new ultra-reliable and durable Ultramatic continuously variable transmission (CVT), which is enhanced to accommodate more than 60 lb-ft of torque. The Wolverine X2 comes pre-wired for the Magellan Adventure Pro GPS. “The Wolverine X2 is the ultimate adventure package for recreational off-roading, combining Yamaha’s industry-leading durability and reliability with superior capability and versatility in a compact and nimble chassis,” said Mike Martinez, Yamaha’s ATV & SxS group vice president. “Yamaha extensively tested the new Wolverine X2 in real-world scenarios to ensure is truly Proven Off-Road, as well as quiet and comfortable to suit the needs of everyone from seasoned trail-goers to first-time adventure-seekers.”

Yamaha’s Wolverine X2 is built with industry-leading durability and dependability to handle the greatest variety of off-road situations. In addition to performance and the speed management system, the Wolverine X2 features a functional design for a variety of uses such as hunting, land, or homestead work. It is one of the smoothest and quietest side-by-side vehicles ever built thanks in part to spiral- and helical-cut drivetrain gearing, its rubber-mounted and counterbalanced engine, and a variety of noise- and vibration-reducing features, allowing the driver and passenger the ability to hold a conversation at any rpm range.

The two-person occupant-centric cab features high-backed seats, each with shoulder bolsters and automotive-style three-point seatbelts. Additional cab comforts include high-traction floorboards, and both an easily adjustable driver seat and steering column. A low, narrow dash and shoulder height maximize visibility for both driver and passenger while sitting comfortably in the seat, and the doors and large fenders separate the cabin from the elements. The Wolverine X2 offers nearly 600 watts of electrical output from the engine; two standard 12V DC ports; pre-wired accessory switches and plugs; doors; high, wide fenders; LED headlights with hi/low beam; and all-new taillights that provide integrated lighting when in Reverse. The new LCD digital meter features a large, dimmable display with speedometer, odometer, trip and hour meters, along with vehicle status and warning displays. With an upswept underbody design, wide arc A-arms, and an overall 11 inches of ground clearance, the all-new Wolverine X2 boasts ideal approach and departure angles to comfortably traverse a variety of terrain. Additionally, the Wolverine X2 is equipped with independent double-wishbone suspension, providing 8.7 inches of preload-adjustable travel in front and 8.9 inches in the rear for excellent handling-feel and bump absorption.

Available immediately, the all-new Wolverine X2 in Graphite starts at $12,699 (MSRP). The Wolverine X2 R-Spec with KYB piggyback shocks, hard suntop, overfenders, and cast aluminum wheels is available in both Ridge Red and Alpine White color schemes at $14,499 (MSRP). For hunters and outdoor enthusiasts, the camouflage model is available in an all-new Realtree Edge pattern for $14,949 (MSRP). Donning painted bodywork, color-matched interior and other full-feature upgrades, the Wolverine X2 R-Spec Special Edition (SE) models are available in Tactical Black and Backcountry Blue at $15,299 (MSRP).
