Yamaha Motor Corp., U.S.A., has announced the introduction of the latest version of its new Viking EPE Side-by-Side (SxS) vehicle, the Special Edition (SE) Tactical Black Viking. Assembled in the U.S.A. and just announced, the new SE Viking combines an aggressive flat back painted appearance and popular accessories with classic Yamaha durability and off-road capabilities.

The new Tactical Black Viking EPS 4x4 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 Yamaha Viking was first introduced last June when it 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 vehicle’s distinctive features make it the most off-road capable vehicle in its class and the only one with true three-person seating capacity.

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.

While the Viking’s 700cc-class engine makes more power than some larger 800cc-class machines, the vehicle’s handling and off-road capabilities truly set it apart. Yamaha’s three-way On-Command system, featuring 2WD, 4WD and 4WD with differential lock, is a driver-controlled system with an automotive-type rotary dial selector. This driver-controlled system gives the driver the control and confidence to lock in all four wheels based on the terrain—a significant benefit over other automated systems on competitive models.

The SE Tactical Black Viking 4x4 EPS will be available in the spring of 2014 with an MSRP of $13,749.
