The new 2015 Yamaha Viking VI follows the successful launch of all-new Viking SxS in June 2013. The extended cab Viking VI combines Yamaha performance and durability with the comfort and convenience of a Viking – now with maximum headroom, legroom and shoulder room for six occupants.The Viking VI is unique in the field of crew cab or multi-passenger UTVs in that it actually has 6-Individual bucket seats, each with their own 3-Point seat belts.

In addition to the individual seating, the Yamaha packed the cab space with creature comforts that make riding with 6 people tolerable. The center seats front and rear have offset seat backs which provides more shoulder room without increasing width.

The Viking VI also features a pass-thru cab design that make is easier to load up 6 adults in a hurry.  And once everyone is seated and buckled, each occupant has a secure floorboard location, headrest and handhold to make rough terrain more comfortable.

The Viking VI was designed with more cab room for all occupants than any competing vehicle. And Viking operators will appreciate the automotive-style driver position with simple and intuitive access to dash-mounted controls, an adjustable driver seat, and a full digital display panel with speedometer, odometer, trip meters and fuel level. Conveniences for all occupants include eight cup holders throughout the cab, a sealed storage container under the center front seat, additional storage under the remaining front seats, a large glove box on the front panel, and two DC power outlets – one in front and another in back.
