The Viking is built off of Yamaha’s tried-and-true three-seat platform and reliable powertrain combination.
The Viking is ready to conquer anything in its path with a powerful 686cc, liquid-cooled, fuel injected, SOHC powerplant. Feeding the air into the Viking’s engine is a large-capacity air-intake system that improves overall engine performance. Making the power transfer to the ground is Yamaha’s ultra-reliable Ultramatic transmission, which now features a 10-year belt warranty. This unit is known for its smooth clutch engagement and On-Command 4WD system, which allows the driver to quickly dial between 2WD, limited-slip 4WD, and a fully locked differential 4WD system.
The interior shines through with a comfortable three-seat cabin that includes padded headrests, three-point seatbelts for all riders, and an adjustable driver’s seat. Doors ensure that everything, including the riders, stays inside the cabin, safe and clean.
Yamaha ensured the Viking puts all these features to use by providing buyers with plenty of capability to haul and tow. The steel cargo bed is designed to take the brunt of anything you want to put in it with a carrying capacity of 600 pounds. The 2-inch receiver on the back of the vehicle is designed to easily tow up to 1,500 pounds.
Finally, buyers will know that the underbelly of their machine is safe because a full length of steel skid plates, which helps prevent the undercarriage from suffering any damage when in rough terrain.
As with many other Yamaha models, the Viking is proudly USA-built and assembled in Newnan, Georgia.
