Yamaha Motor Corp. initially announced its Special Edition (SE) Tactical Black Viking at SHOT Show 2014. Now ready for purchase, the Viking line's latest addition was prominently on display at the 143rd NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits.
Assembled in the U.S.A., the new SE Viking combines an aggressive flat back painted appearance and popular accessories with classic Yamaha durability and off-road capabilities. It boasts all of the category-leading features of Yamaha's standard Viking SxS, and also sports a molded sun top, overfenders, mud flaps, an under-seat storage box, bed-rail accessory mounts and exclusive black cast aluminum wheels.
The vehicle's power comes from Yamaha’s strongest four-wheel drive engine to date—a 686cc liquid-cooled 4-stroke, SOHC, single-cylinder, 4-valve fuel-injected engine that provides peak performance at maximum capacity. This durable engine has been optimized for working conditions with strong low-end torque while quick throttle response and smooth power delivery are maintained throughout the rev range.
The Yamaha Viking was first introduced in June 2013, and set a new standard in the three-person multi-purpose SxS segment. Designed and engineered as a robust and high-capacity utility vehicle, the Viking combines Yamaha’s most powerful four-wheel drive engine to date with a comfortable and confidence-inspiring three-person cab, precision steering and class-leading handling.

The SE Tactical Black Viking 4x4 EPS will ship with an MSRP of $13,749.
