2016 Yamaha YXZ1000R – Vehicle Features

Industry First Sequential Manual Side-by-Side Transmission
The YXZ1000R features the industry’s first fully manual 5-speed sequential shift transmission in a SxS vehicle, delivering a direct connection between driver and machine for superior performance, confidence and the first and only true pure sport SxS experience.

The 5-speed sequential shift is manually operated via a clutch pedal and short-stroke shift lever for smooth, secure gear engagement. With the YXZ1000R’s direct-drive transmission, driveline efficiency is increased, supplying optimal engine power directly to the rear wheels, while cam dampers on both the input and output shafts keep shifting smooth and precise.

The YXZ1000R’s all-new clutch design is optimized for the vehicle’s class-leading engine output, providing a smooth and connected shifting feeling with reliable power. The all-new sport-inspired foot-pedal operated hydraulic clutch system provides light, consistent and natural feeling feedback to the driver, increasing confidence in challenging off-road terrain.
