2013 Yamaha Raptor 700R Yamaha has announced their 2013 launch of their revamped sport ATV, the Raptor 700R. The 686cc, twin cylinder, liquid cooled, fuel-in- jected four-stroke engine, is equally happy on the dunes, the trails or at the track. It comes with a hybrid steel aluminum frame and sub-frame, as well as a cast aluminum swingarm, which combines to produce a strong structure, with the lightest weight in its class. It has 9.1 inches of front travel and 10.1 inches out back, and new aggressive styling. 2013 New Features: New styling enhances the Raptor 700R’s menac- ing looks. Front and rear piggyback shocks offer full adjustability and op- timal bump absorbing performance. An adjustable front brake lever en- ables precise tuning for the rider’s personal preference. New Maxxis® tires deliver class leading traction. Twin piston rear brake caliper is added for excellent stopping power. The Raptor 700R is proudly assembled in the U.S.A., alongside Yamaha’s 4x4 and Side x Side utility vehicles.
