Yamaha Shipping 2011 Rhinos For Summer Delivery

New Rhino SxS has upgrades and a new Sport Edition with aluminum wheels and adjustable shocks.

The 2011 Yamaha Rhino 700 FI should be in dealerships this summer, complete with upgrades for operator comfort, and a new Sport Edition with an improved suspension system.


The 700 FI is powered with a fuel-injected, four-valve SOHC liquid-cooled engine. The single sports a forged piston and aluminum block with ceramic coatings to improve wear characteristics and cut weight. The valve train is based on a roller-rocker design which cuts friction and improves throttle response.


Yamaha's 2011 Rhino 700 FI side-by-side vehicle will be hitting dealer showrooms this summer. Upgrades this year include adjustable seats and a new steering wheel for enhanced operator comfort.

The new Rhino features Yamaha's Ultramatic automatic transmission with a centrifugal clutch that holds the drive belt in constant tension for improved durability. The Ultramatic also sports a one-way sprag clutch for four-wheel engine braking.


Push-button 2WD/4WD controls make tacking terrain easy, particularly with 12.1 inches of ground clearance and fully independent front and rear A-arm suspension that offers more than 7.3 inches of travel.


The machine comes with standard passenger grab handles and cup holders, as well as tough rotomolded doors to keep mud, water and debris out of the cab.


The Rhino 700 features a standard 2X2 receiver and is capable of towing up to 1,212 pounds. The cargo bed can hold 400 pounds, and can be dumped from either side of the vehicle.
