The Yamaha Raptor 350 is the embodiment of a cool and bad-ass all-terrain vehicle. Unlike other ATVs on the market, Yamaha paid careful attention to make the Raptor 350 into a definite head-turner. The low lying seat allows riders to enjoy the experience of driving a powerful ATV that’s all kinds of comfortable while also offering a healthy sport riding ergonomics. Extra wide, 45mm footpegs were taken straight out of the awesome YFZ450 to provide healthy grip and rider comfort while an easy to use, toggle link category handlebar mounted parking brake may be set with one hand.
The Yamaha Raptor 350 comes with a light and high-powered 348cc air cooled SOHC single engine that produces outstanding torque for a bike of its stature. The engine also comes with a big, 36mm BSR Mikuni carburetor that provides light throttle pull and healthy throttle reaction across the entire RPM range. Add that to the fact that the Raptor 350 also features a high, snorkel category intake that assures airflow to the engine while riding in mud or water and you have an ATV that won’t take a back seat to any one.
The Raptor 350 comes with a light and solid chassis with a lowly halfway of gravity that creates a quick, ultra responsive high performance package. An independent double wishbone serves as the front suspension system with preload adjusting shocks and 7. 9" of travel. The bike also has large diameter ventilated hydraulic front and rear disc brakes that deliver healthy stopping ability on all possible road conditions.
