The Raptor 700R’s aggressive design makes it seem as threatening as it is. Whether you’re heading to the dunes, the trails, or the track, the Raptor 700R is ready to go.

The Raptor 700R comes equipped with immense power and is lightweight, a combination that makes any ATV rider pay note. This combination of a hybrid steel aluminum frame, Controlled-Fill aluminum sub-frame, and cast aluminum swingarm results in the strongest and lightest ATV in its class.

The twin counterbalancers, electric starting, and reverse make things friendly and polite when required, but when it’s time to draw the trigger, the Raptor 700R stands tall. The Raptor 700R’s YFZ-inspired handling is fantastic to see when tearing through the woods. The trail bumps are smoothed out thanks to the 9.1 inches of front travel and 10.1 inches of rear travel while the rider maintains control. This bike must be experienced to be genuinely understood, with its mix of power, good handling, and excellent suspension.

The 686cc engine’s forged lightweight piston, connecting rod, and crankshaft are light and robust for a hard-hitting, quick-revving motor that revs to 9000 rpm while being kept smooth by twin counterbalancers. In various situations, altitudes, and temperatures, the Yamaha Fuel Injection (YFI) delivers consistent and outstanding engine performance.

For consistent performance and excellent throttle response, the digital TCI with a 32-bit electronic control unit regulates fuel injection and ignition systems. Electric start with a press of a button in any gear adds to the convenience.

With the Raptor 700R’s enormous powerband and race-bred five-speed gearbox with reverse, there’s a gear for almost any scenario. The heavy-duty clutch includes a strong basket and plates intended to harness the power, while the YZ-spec ratchet shifter guarantees smooth, resistance-free shifting under authority. A tool-free air filter and an easy-to-reach oil filter add to the convenience.
