2014 Yamaha Viking

At the MGM Grand on the night of June 11th, Yamaha rolled out the long awaited replacement for the Rhino, the all new Yamaha Viking.

Powered by a fuel injected single-cylinder 686cc gasoline powered engine, this should be a good addition to the Side x Side market for those people looking for a good utility oriented vehicle with supple suspension.

The new viking is available either with or without EPS (Electronic Power Steering) and it comes in 4 different colors. Dealers should start seeing the first shipments of the new Viking in July, and Yamaha anticipates rolling 5000 off the assembly line by the end of 2013.
