No matter the adventure, both driver and passenger will enjoy the comfortable, quiet ride, which welcomes conversations at any RPM range thanks to the smooth, vibration-free power of the vehicle’s new 847-cc twin cylinder engine.
Real World Tech
Yamaha’s advantages in the side-by-side industry are easily seen in the technology that comes standard with every Wolverine X2™ R-Spec SE: top-shelf, fully adjustable suspension, driver-centric On-Command® 4WD, ultra-reliable Ultramatic® CVT and industry-leading, speed-sensitive Electric Power Steering.
The Wolverine X2 R-Spec SE offers class-leading suspension performance that blurs the line between utility comfort and sports performance. Full-adjustable shocks offer extensive adjustment range, plush control and long-lasting durability.

The Wolverine X2 R-Spec SE comes pre-wired for Yamaha’s exclusive Adventure Pro GPS system, unlocking the next level of trail-ready navigation. Combining high-precision GPS with social integration and vehicle information, the Adventure Pro system redefines ‘state of the art.’
The Wolverine X2 R-Spec SE offers a balance of work-ready functionality, refined comfort and trail-proven capability that makes Yamaha the ultimate outdoor adventure partner.
Smooth and Powerful Twin-Cylinder Engine
The Wolverine X2 R-Spec SE is powered by an 847cc DOHC, eight-valve, parallel twin-cylinder motor that features the full range of Yamaha’s advanced performance technologies. Forged pistons and connecting rods ensure durable high-rpm performance, with Yamaha’s 270° Crossplane Concept Crankshaft for linear torque development and excellent power throughout the rpm range. To improve efficiency, the engine features a dry-sump design for a more compact layout and offset cylinder block to reduce friction loss, while rubber engine mounts and a geared counterbalancer ensures smooth running from idle to redline.
Roomy, Practical Ergonomics
With high-backed seats, each with shoulder bolsters and automotive-style three-point seat belts, the Wolverine X2 R-Spec SE provides a comfortable perch for driver and passenger. A standard sun top, multiple cup holders, high-traction floorboards and adjustable driver seat and steering column round out the amenities.
The Wolverine X2 R-Spec SE is one of the smoothest and quietest side-by-sides ever made. Noise, vibration and harshness—NVH in engineering terms—is minimalized thanks to the refinement of the twin-cylinder powerplant as well as an array of specially-formed body panels and insulating dampers throughout the chassis.
Class-Leading Electric Power Steering
Yamaha’s Electric Power Steering (EPS) provides the industry’s best balance of steering assist and positive feedback from the trail, with light steering, speed-sensitive steering response, and minimal fatigue.
Thanks to the well-developed suspension tuning, the Wolverine X2 R-Spec SE provides a plush, well-damped riding feel that further improves cabin comfort.
Superior Mud Protection
Full-enclosed doors and high, wide fenders ensure that mud, rocks and sticks all stay outside the cabin so you and your passenger can enjoy the ride even more.
The Wolverine X2 R-Spec SE features LED headlights and taillights, for brilliant visibility, long life and minimal power draw.
With nearly 600 watts of electrical output from the engine, a standard 12V DC port and multiple pre-wired accessory switches, the Wolverine X2 R-Spec SE is ready for a wide range of accessories and add-ons.
Compact and Nimble Chassis
Designed for maneuverability, the Wolverine X2 R-Spec SE chassis is super agile, making tight trails a breeze, with lightweight steering to select the ideal line when tackling obstacles. With an upswept underbody design and wide-arc A-arms, the Wolverine X2 R-Spec SE boasts big approach and departure angles to clear challenging terrain, with plenty of clearance to get in and out of the most remote areas.
Industry’s Most Durable CVT
The Wolverine X2 R-Spec SE transmission uses its own cooling intake to maintain proper temperatures, an oversized belt to handle the torque of the large motor, and Yamaha’s unique sprag clutch to maintain constant belt tension—the end result is a drivetrain built for years of trouble-free service that leaves the competition in the dust.
Full Underbody Skid Plates
Skid plates protect the entire underbody of the Wolverine X2 R-Spec SE, from the front differential to the rear gear case, to ensure gnarly terrain doesn’t stop you. And as with other Yamaha machines, the skid plates include convenient service points to access fluid drain locations without removing the guards.
Powerful All-Wheel Disc Brakes
Large 207mm vented disc brakes with two-piston calipers provide exceptional stopping power on all four wheels, with excellent feel and minimal noise.
The all-digital meter gives the driver a complete picture at a glance, with a large dimmable readout. Vehicle status and warnings are clearly displayed, along with easily accessible odometers and trip and hour meters. And with the Adventure Pro system installed, additional vehicle data is clearly displayed on a brilliantly crisp, full-color 7-in display.
The Wolverine X2 R-Spec SE features an all-new tilting cargo bed to simplify hauling duties. Built with hydraulic assistance and a robust latch system, the bed transports up to 600 pounds, with multiple tie-down points to secure cargo or attach accessories. Add in a full 2,000 pounds of towing capacity thanks to the standard 2-in receiver, and the Wolverine X2 R-Spec SE is ready to get to work when you are.
