It's not often you want to bring a Rhino to a convention, but Yamaha's is a very obvious exception to the rule. The company is displaying its Tactical Black Special Edition Rhino 700 Fl on the floor this week at SHOT Show 2013—and later this year, the company is giving it away.
Yamaha is giving away a Rhino to help raise awareness and money for the Honored American Veterans Afield (HAVA) and Feed the Children charities. It's the second year of the company's "Assembled in the U.S.A." sweepstakes, which raises money through $5 donations. Yamaha is collecting donations online from Jan. 15 through May 31, 2013.
The Special Edition Rhino, which is decked out in tactical accessories, is valued at more than $13,000 and is Yamaha’s most off-road capable and durable Side-by-Side vehicle.
