The Yamaha Rhino 660 comes equipped with a powerful 660cc 5 valve single cylinder liquid cooled engine that produces tremendous torque / power to move this vehicle around with authority. The powerful engine is coupled with the Ultramatic CVT transmission with High/Low range & reverse. The transmission allows all wheel engine braking which can be especially helpful when towing heavy loads. Further on down the drivetrain, the Yamaha On Command system allows the driver to switch between 2WD, 4WD, and 4WD with locked differentials - all at the simple push of a button! The workhorse engine combined with the efficient Ultramatic transmission & high traction drivetrain makes the Rhino amazingly agile in difficult off road situations. This vehicle will really surprise you at what it can do!

The Rhino soaks up the bumps with it's fully independent front / rear suspension; Speed is kept under control by heavy duty front / rear disc brakes. The powerful Yamaha Rhino can carry 400lbs in the rear bed, and has a towing capacity of over 1200lbs. This is a real workhorse, and also an impressive off road performer!

First introduced as the 660, the newer Yamaha Rhino 450 model offers almost all the same exciting features as the 660, but with a smaller 421cc liquid cooled engine providing good power at a more affordable price tag. They are basically the same vehicles with different engines. New for 2008, the Yamaha Rhino 700 takes the same great platform, adds numerous improvements like fuel injection. The latest 700 version will replace the older 660.

The Rhino has also been offered in blue color with upgraded aluminum wheels. There are many exciting accessories available to help customize your machine and make it even better! No matter which version of the Yamaha Rhino that you choose in camo, green, red, or blue (or one of the latest exciting new color schemes), one things is for sure... this is an exciting off road vehicle that can comfortably carry 2 people and their gear in ways that a conventional ATV never could!

Always wear head protection if you plan on taking your Rhino to extremes!

These guys are wearing protective helmets, which is a great idea on possible rough terrain; I've seen a few people tip these over and get a concussion...
