Yamaha Announces All-New VIKING 3-seat Side-by-Side Vehicle

Yamaha announced their launch of the all-new Viking EPS Side by Side that is designed to hold three people. The Viking’s exclusive pass-through bucket seating features a unique off-set center position for the rear seat.

“With the introduction of the all-new Viking, Yamaha is once again taking a leadership position in the growing multi-purpose SxS segment of the off-road business,” said Mike Martinez, vice president of Yamaha’s ATV/SxS Group.  “The Viking tops its competition with precise steering and superior handling, excelling in the areas of durability, reliability, ease of use, and cargo and towing capacity.  The Viking’s class-leading handling and off-road performance make it the only SxS vehicle that can claim true utility-pointed design while still providing a fun, confidence-inspiring experience in a recreational setting.”
The new Viking was designed and engineered as a robust and high-capacity utility vehicle.  It combines Yamaha’s most powerful four-wheel drive engine to date with a comfortable and confidence-inspiring three-person cab, precision steering and class-leading handling.
  The Viking’s exclusive pass-through bucket seating features a unique off-set center position (set 5 degrees back) that improves comfort with maximum shoulder room for all three occupants.  This is the only vehicle in its class with three-point seat belts for everyone, plus headrests all around, adjustable handhold for both passengers and a textured floorboard with dedicated foot wells.  Its seating position even provides for more head room than competitive models without sacrificing critical ground clearance. 
Yamaha will be building the new Viking SxS in the USA, at their plant in Newnan, Georgia. It will be available in both a power assist steering model ($12,499) and a non power assist steering version ($11,499).
Every Yamaha Viking is being manufactured exclusively in the U.S.A. at Yamaha’s factory in Newnan, Georgia, for worldwide distribution.
The all-new Viking EPS and non-EPS models will be available starting this August.  Standard models come in Steel Blue, Hunter Green (with sun top), Red (with sun top) and Realtree AP HD camo (with sun top).  The non-EPS models start at $11,499 MSRP while the EPS models start at $12,499 MSRP.  A Special Edition Tactical Black model will be available in spring 2014.
