The new Yamaha 2015 Viking SxS is their latest release. The new 4×4 is assembled at the Yamaha plant in Newnan Georgia. The 2015 Viking Side by Side (SxS) is a three person ATV with pass through bucket seating, four-wheel drive, full steel-composite skid plate, automatic transmission, electric power steering (EPS), and 686cc engine. The 2015 Viking's three-way driver-controlled On-Command System features 2WD, 4WD, and 4WD with differential lock utilizing an automotive style rotary selector. For utility purposes and hauling back your game, the 2015 Viking SxS can pull a ¾ ton load utilizing a 2 inch receiver hitch and its assisted-dump steel cargo bed (which can carry up to 600 pounds). The vehicle base has at least 12 inches of ground clearance at any given point. Upturned side rails allow the driver to easily traverse obstacles. An Ultramatic™ transmission offers high, low and reverse with seamless all-wheel engine braking. A four-wheel independent suspension offers a smooth ride even with a heavy load on board. Yamaha's ATV marketing manager, Steve Nessl says, “The 2015 Vikings are in production and rolling out to dealers across the country this fall. From the summer farm shows to farmers and hunters who are starting to harvest crops and game in the field, we continue to get great feedback from current and future Yamaha Viking owners.” A 2015 Viking Model without Electronic Power Steering has an MSRP of $11,799. Models with EPS are available in Steel Blue, Hunter Green, Red, and Realtree AP HD Camo from $12,799 to $13,599 MSRP.
