2012 Yamaha Raptor 700R SE Key Features:
Yamaha Fuel Injection (YFI) means consistently excellent engine performance in a wide range of conditions, elevations and temperatures.
Reliable pushbutton electric start in any gear adds extra convenience.
Race-bred five-speed transmission with reverse, along with Raptor 700R's monstrous powerband, means there's a choice of gears in just about all situations.
Hybrid steel and aluminum frame with a Controlled-Fill aluminum sub frame and cast aluminum swingarm combine to produce a super-strong structure and the lightest ATV in its class.
Long-travel suspension system features fully adjustable piggyback shocks with high- and low-speed compression damping for superior handling; rear shock adjusts for preload, rebound and compression damping.
YFZ-inspired twin-aluminum-piston front disc brakes and rear disc deliver tremendous stopping power with less unsprung weight. The popular toggle link-type parking brake lever with an auto-adjust feature keeps maintenance to a minimum.
Light, aluminum wheels mean less unsprung weight for great suspension action, and custom Dunlop radials provide maximum traction.
Keep track of all systems with the trick and rugged LCD digital instrument meter: speed, rpm, coolant temp, etc.—it's all there.
YFZ-spec 45mm serrated foot pegs provide excellent boot traction
Krypton headlights set back in the front cowl add awesome sporting accent
LED taillight provides great visibility
Front brake master cylinder features an adjustable lever for increased comfort and feel
Cast aluminum swingarm carries an eccentric quick-adjust drive chain mechanism that takes most of the work out of that task
Aggressive styling reflects Raptor 700R's intent, and YFZ-inspired handling means it walks the walk, too.
Long-travel suspension—9.1 inches front, 10.1 rear—a cushy seat and excellent ergonomics make the Raptor 700R comfortable to ride hard all day long.
