2014 Yamaha Raptor 700

Posted on by  

Fast, agile and sleek, the 2014 Yamaha Raptor 700 is a capable sport ATV designed for those who love to mix four wheels with rugged terrains.

To maximize the performances of the Raptor 700, Yamaha’s technicians have equipped it with a lightweight hybrid steel aluminum frame, a Controlled-Fill aluminum sub-frame and a cast aluminum swingarm.

The frame houses a 686 cc, liquid cooled, 4 stroke; SOHC, 4 valves engine which sends its power to the ground by means of a five speed transmission.

The stopping power is handled by twin aluminum-piston front disc brakes and a twin piston rear brake caliper.

The ATV rides on a set of high-performance 21x7-10 front and 20x10-9 rear Maxxis tires which are perfectly capable to deal with any type of terrains without backing down.

The ATV is offered with a base price of $7,699.

2014 Yamaha Raptor 700 Key Features:

Yamaha Raptor 700

• Aggressive styling makes the Raptor 700 look as menacing as it really is. The mighty Raptor 700 is ready to go whether the destination is the dunes, the trails or the track.

• Powered by our most potent big-bore Raptor engine ever – 686cc of liquid cooled, fuel-injected power. The engine produces big torque right off idle, transitioning into a fat mid-range and monstrous top-end.

• Big power and lightweight, a combination that makes any ATV rider take notice, is standard on the Raptor 700, with a hybrid steel aluminum frame and Controlled-Fill aluminum sub-frame and cast aluminum swingarm combining to produce a super-strong structure and the lightest ATV in its class.

• A thick comfortable seat provides excellent comfort while the dual counterbalancers, electric starting, and reverse keep things nice and civilized when needed, but when it comes time to pull the trigger the big-bore Raptor 700 stands tall.

• The YFZ inspired handling of the Raptor 700 is incredible to experience blasting through the woods. Thanks to the 9.1 inches of front travel and 10.1 inches out back, the trail bumps smooth out while the rider keeps things under control. With the combination of power, solid handling, and a great suspension this machine has to be experienced to be fully appreciated.
