Yamaha Motor Corp., U.S.A. has announced that its 2015 Viking Side-by-Side (SxS) is rolling off of U.S. assembly lines and is ready to ship to consumers, just in time for the fall hunting season.

Yamaha’s 2015 Viking is a three-person SxS vehicle featuring a driver-directed four-wheel drive system, a durable and reliable automatic transmission, and natural feeling electric power steering (EPS).

“The 2015 Vikings are in production and rolling out to dealers across the country this fall,” said Steve Nessl, Yamaha’s ATV/SxS group marketing manager. “From the summer farm shows to farmers and hunters who are starting to harvest crops and game in the field, we continue to get great feedback from current and future Yamaha Viking owners.”

The Viking's cab configuration allows for pass-through bucket seating and maximum headroom without sacrificing ground clearance.

Automotive-style controls engage the 686cc engine, and Yamaha’s three-way On-Command system, featuring 2WD, 4WD and 4WD with differential lock, is driver-controlled with an automotive-type rotary dial selector.

The Viking’s rear steel cargo bed can pack up to 600 pounds of equipment and supplies while the standard two-inch receiver hitch is rated to pull 1,500 pounds.

Standard EPS models come in Steel Blue ($12,799), Hunter Green with sun top ($12,999), Red with sun top ($12,999) and Realtree AP HD camo with sun top ($13,599). The 2015 non-EPS models start at $11,799 MSRP.

A new 2015 Special Edition in Matte Silver comes with a hard sun top, cast aluminum wheels, over fenders, mud flaps and the Yamaha accessory bed rail mounting system. It will ship with an MSRP of $14,049.
