Quotes

"When you are out with your buddies and want to get everyone out on the sand or running the crew to the job site the Yamaha Viking VI is probably an option that you can deal with. It fits six riders, has a wheelbase of 115.6 inches and has a 686cc fuel injected engine. The Yamaha Viking VI features molded doors, three point seatbelts, two accessory power outlets and cup holders." — Motorcycle USA

"It has only been a year since Yamaha first took the cover off the Viking 700 Side-by-Side. So pleased was Yamaha with its three-seat Utility machine that it decided to double the fun for model year 2015 with the six-person Viking VI." — atv.com

"It has almost become a forgone conclusion in the UTV world that when a manufacturer releases a new model, it will be followed up within a year’s time by a crew or double-rowed version. When Yamaha unwrapped the 2014 Viking for the media back in June of 2013, its representatives hinted that there was going to be a steady flow of new side-by-sides for the next half decade. Immediately we assumed the next would be a six-seat variant. Six days shy of a year later, Yamaha gave 4WheelDirt the first look at the 2015 Viking VI. What’s better, we were allowed some abbreviated seat time to get a quick impression of the new machine." — 4wheeldirt
