Features

Capability

  • SMOOTH AND POWERFUL TWIN-CYLINDER ENGINE: The Wolverine X2 850 R-Spec is powered by an 847cc DOHC eight-valve parallel-twin engine featuring a full range of advanced Yamaha technology. Forged pistons and connecting rods ensure durable high-rpm performance with Yamaha’s 270° Crossplane Concept Crankshaft for linear torque development and excellent power throughout the rpm range. To improve efficiency, the engine features a dry-sump design for a more compact layout and an offset cylinder block to reduce friction losses. Rubber engine mounts and a geared counterbalancer ensure smooth running from idle to redline.
  • RESPONSIVE AND RELIABLE ULTRAMATIC® TRANSMISSION: Yamaha’s Ultramatic® transmission is the most advanced—and durable—CVT drive system available. An automatic centrifugal clutch maintains constant belt tension for reduced wear, and a sprag clutch delivers natural all-wheel engine braking.
  • ON-COMMAND® 4WD: Industry-exclusive three-position On-Command® 4WD system lets you switch between 2WD, limited-slip 4WD, and fully locked differential 4WD. Unlike competitors’ automatic 4WD systems, On-Command® puts the driver in full control to make the most of available traction in various types of terrain.
  • COMPACT AND NIMBLE CHASSIS: Designed for maneuverability, the Wolverine X2 850 R-Spec chassis is super agile, making tight trails a breeze with lightweight steering to select the ideal line when tackling obstacles. With an upswept underbody design, the Wolverine X2 850 R-Spec boasts plenty of ground clearance and big approach and departure angles to clear challenging terrain. For enhanced response in tough terrain, the rear A-arms minimize camber changes across the suspension travel.
  • YAMAHA CHIP CONTROLLED-THROTTLE (YCC-T): The Wolverine X2 850 R-Spec engine utilizes YCC-T®, a drive-by-wire system that converts the driver’s commands into digital throttle control. Throttle response is further improved thanks to a quick-response servo motor, precision fuel injectors and a high-volume airbox with two-stage air filtration.
  • CLASS-LEADING ELECTRIC POWER STEERING: Yamaha’s Electric Power Steering (EPS) provides the industry’s best balance of steering assist and positive feedback with light steering and speed-sensitive response for minimized fatigue.
  • PLUSH SUSPENSION: The Wolverine X2 850 R-Spec features well-damped suspension at all four corners for improved chassis control and handling feel. High performance KYB® piggyback shocks built specifically for Yamaha are fully adjustable with spring preload, rebound, and high- and low-speed compression damping to allow tuning to suit a wide range of driver preferences and conditions.
  • POWERFUL ALL-WHEEL DISC BRAKES: Large 207mm vented disc brakes with two-piston calipers provide exceptional stopping power on all four wheels with excellent feel.
  • MAXIMUM VERSATILITY: The Wolverine X2 850 R-Spec features a tilting cargo bed to simplify hauling duties. Built with hydraulic assistance and a robust latch system, the bed transports up to 600 pounds with multiple steel tie-down points to secure cargo or attach accessories. Add in a full 2,000 pounds of towing capacity from the standard 2-inch receiver and the Wolverine X2 850 R-Spec is ready to work when you are.
  • ADVENTURE PRO READY: The Wolverine X2 850 R-Spec comes pre-wired for Yamaha’s exclusive Adventure Pro® GPS system, unlocking the next level of trail-ready navigation. This state-of-the-art GPS unit combines a range of functions into a single, rugged 7-inch full-color display. Search, download, record and share trail routes. With Yamaha’s uniquely integrated software, the Adventure Pro system displays advanced vehicle data with exceptional clarity.
  • EXTREME TERRAIN TIRES: Extreme terrain calls for tires that handle the abuse while providing confidence-inspiring grip and feedback. The Wolverine X2 850 R-Spec rolls on 27-inch GBC® Dirt Commander radial tires that not only improve ground clearance and traction, but feature a rugged 8-ply construction for exceptional durability.

Comfort

  • SMOOTH, QUIET POWERTRAIN: Thanks to helical-cut drivetrain gearing, the rubber-mounted and counterbalanced engine, and a variety of noise- and vibration-reducing inserts around the cabin, the Wolverine X2 850 R-Spec is one of the smoothest and quietest recreational Side-by-Sides ever built. Converse with your passenger or simply enjoy the unparalleled refinement on extended adventures.
  • ENHANCED ERGONOMICS: High-backed seats with improved adjustability combine with updated pedal positions to create a more comfortable cockpit for drivers of various sizes, while compact shoulder bolsters, easily adjustable seatbelts and padded knee areas create a more comfortable perch for both driver and passenger. Multiple cup holders, high-traction floorboards, quick-adjust driver seat and steering column round out the amenities.
  • PLUSH SUSPENSION: The Wolverine X2 850 R-Spec features well-damped suspension at all four corners for improved chassis control and handling feel. High performance KYB® piggyback shocks built specifically for Yamaha are fully adjustable with spring preload, rebound, and high- and low-speed compression damping to allow tuning to suit a wide range of driver preferences and conditions.
  • SUPERIOR MUD PROTECTION: The upgraded, fully-enclosed doors and high, wide fenders ensure that mud and rocks stay outside the cabin, so you and your passenger can enjoy the ride in any conditions.
  • LED LIGHTING: The Wolverine X2 850 R-Spec features LED lighting for long life and minimal power draw. LED headlights offer brilliant illumination of the trail ahead while LED taillights increase visibility from behind, helping to make you more conspicuous in dark or dusty conditions.
  • ACCESSORY READY: With nearly 600 watts of electrical output from the engine, the standard 12V DC port and multiple pre-wired accessory switches, the Wolverine X2 850 R-Spec is ready for a wide range of accessories and add-ons.

Confidence

  • INDUSTRY’S MOST DURABLE CVT: The Wolverine X2 850 R-Spec transmission uses its own cooling intake to maintain proper temperatures, an oversized belt to handle the torque of the large engine and Yamaha’s unique sprag clutch to maintain constant belt tension. The end result is a drivetrain built for years of trouble-free service that leaves the competition in the dust, and is backed by the industry's only 10-Year V-Belt Limited Warranty.
  • RELIABLE ENGINE LUBRICATION AND COOLING: With a large oil capacity circulating in the dry-sump system, a liquid-cooled oil cooler and a large radiator with integrated blower, the Wolverine X2 850 R-Spec powerplant is able to handle the toughest conditions without complaint.
  • FULL UNDERBODY SKID PLATES: To ensure gnarly terrain doesn’t stop you, full skid plates protect the entire underbody of the Wolverine X2 850 R-Spec, from the front differential to the rear gear case. Skid plates also include convenient service points to access fluid drain locations without removing the guards.
  • ADVANCED INSTRUMENTATION: The premium blue-backlit, all-digital meter with a large dimmable readout gives the driver a complete picture at a glance. Vehicle status and warnings are clearly displayed, along with easily accessed odometers and trip and hour meters.
  • SPEED MANAGEMENT SYSTEM: The Wolverine X2 850 R-Spec comes standard with a Speed Management System which allows the owner to limit the vehicle to a top speed of 25 mph, making it ideal for work sites or other special operating conditions.
  • BUILT REAL WORLD TOUGH®, ASSEMBLED IN THE USA: As with other Yamaha Side-by-Sides and full-size ATVs, the Wolverine X2 850 R-Spec is assembled in the USA to meet Yamaha’s exacting standards for durability and reliability.
