Yamaha kicked off SHOT Show by introducing the Wolverine R-Spec, an all-new Side-by-Side that's designed and engineered for exploring extreme terrain.

Assembled in the U.S.A., the Wolverine R-Spec sports a new chassis with a compact design, look and feel, a secure cab with seating for two and Yamaha's core technologies. It features a new double overhead cam (DOHC), 708cc engine with optimized torque, power delivery and engine character.

"The all-new Wolverine will extend Yamaha's Side-by-Side line into the recreation segment creating a new level of durability, quality, handling and superior off-road capabilities not yet seen in the off-road industry," said Mike Martinez, Yamaha's Recreational Vehicle (RV) group vice president. "Yamaha's Wolverine R-Spec SxS is made for off-road enthusiasts, hunters and explorers looking to navigate tight, technical trails and extreme off-road terrain."

The new side-by-side will be available from Yamaha dealerships starting in April 2015. Standard models feature a hard sun top and come in Steel Blue and Hunter Green. The camo Wolverine R-Spec will be the first ever SxS to feature Realtree Xtra Camo. Non-EPS models will start at $12,199, while EPS models will open at $13,199.
