2021 RMAX2 1000 Features & Specifications

New, Powerful 999cc Parallel Twin Engine

The Wolverine® RMAX™2 1000 delivers class-leading power and  smooth performance, thanks to its new, powerful 999cc, DOHC, eightvalve, parallel twin engine, featuring legendary Yamaha durability.

The Toughest Transmission

The Proven Off-Road technology of Yamaha’s Ultramatic® system is unmatched in the industry. Backed by the industry’s only 10-year belt warranty, the CVT system utilizes a new, centrifugal wet clutch purpose-built to withstand the power from the new 999cc engine, and a constant tension belt system for tackling obstacles in high rev range without fear of damaging the belt. When more torque is needed, the low gear is perfect for challenging conditions. The robust CVT system means less time switching gears and more fun taking on any terrain.

Excellent Braking System

The one-way sprag clutch offers natural and predictable engine braking at all speeds. Maximizing traction and reducing wear on the vehicle’s brake system helps descend hills with confidence. The all-wheel engine braking combined with the new Wolverine RMAX2 1000 brake calipers and rotors results in excellent feel and feedback for confidence inspiring stopping power. With 255mm rotors and 32mm dual piston calipers up front and 244.5mm rotors and 27mm dual piston calipers in the rear, the perfectly-matched master cylinder and steel braided brake lines bring the Wolverine RMAX2 1000 to a stop.

An Imposing Figure with Next Generation Style

The Wolverine RMAX2 1000 wraps next-level capability with an imposing stance, highlighted by aggressive front end styling and rugged tires. The all-new stealthy front LED headlights and “evil eye” marker lights give this new generation a distinctive look on the trail, and the LED taillight, brake light, and reverse light provide added visibility. With its eye-catching colors, the RMAX’s appearance is only rivaled by its own trail-dominating performance.

Terrain-Tackling Chassis

For maximum terrainability, the Wolverine RMAX2 1000 features a solid and durable frame that is designed to provide superior off-road confidence. Along with its class-leading suspension, 30-inch tires, and an optimized wheel base provide a balanced contact-to-ground feel in extreme terrain.

Advanced, Comfort- Focused Suspension

The all-new advanced and heavy-duty suspension is designed toprovide maximum articulation in low speed situations, a balanced ride feeling when trail riding, and the highest level of bottoming resistance with a higher-speed damping feel when maneuvering the Wolverine RMAX2 1000. The wide-arc A-arms paired with the FOX® 2.0 QS3 shocks deliver 14.2-inches of travel up front and an amazing 16.9- inches of travel in the rear. The new FOX® 2.0 QS3 shocks can be easily switched – without tools – between three custom positions to enhance comfort during relaxed driving, increase damping for normal trail riding and maximize damping during sport driving.

Terrain-Focused Tires

The new Wolverine RMAX2 1000 comes with 30-inch GBC® Dirt Commander 2.0® tires and 14-inch aluminum wheels, in a “square setup”, allowing the ability to carry a single spare. By utilizing radial construction, the GBC tires are developed specifically for the RMAX to provide precise steering character, comfortable yet durable sidewall feel, and intermediate terrain-focused tread pattern that provides traction in a wide variety of terrain.

Wolverine RMAX2 1000 Durability

With large rigid components to maintain Yamaha’s legendary durability, the Wolverine RMAX2 1000 provides the most confidence inspiring ownership experience. The Wolverine RMAX2 1000 boasts specifically-designed front differential and rear gear case with durable surface treatments and Carbon Steel construction, large 62mm front and 72mm rear DAC (Double Angular Contact) wheel bearings, forged sway bar links, wide pitch A-arms and single stamped A-arms, and large vehicle-specific ball joints, just to name a few. And the most trusted transmission in the industry is backed by an unprecedented, Yamaha exclusive 10-Year Belt Warranty.

All-New Heavy Duty Three-Piece Door Design

A new three piece, easy-to-open door design features a steel inner structure, a molded outer door skin and a molded inner door panel for a quality feel. The robust inner door handles keep the mud out to work smoothly, even in the harshest of conditions. The doors feature integrated snap out speaker panels for easier upgradability, and soft touchpoints for an automotive feel so occupants are kept comfortable for all-day driving. To ease entering and exiting the vehicle, the front doors feature an enlarged opening, 63% wider than previous Wolverine models. Further increasing comfort, the front shoulder bolster shapes were optimized to expand the upper body opening to maintain a great, secure-feeling on the trail for riders big and small.

Comfortable, Secure Seats

An exceptional seating position provides a planted feel and reduces fatigue, which is essential for occupants to enjoy the driving experience. The new Wolverine RMAX2 1000 keeps occupants comfortable and secure with its wide bolstering and additional leg room for larger occupants. The driver’s seat has increased adjustability compared to previous Wolverine models, combined with a new notool, easy-to-adjust, six-position seat belt for added comfort.

Max Comfort for Driver and Passengers

Driver and passenger comfort features include a tilt steering wheel with 17 degrees of adjustment, and a new adjustable passenger handhold with a robust design that won’t get clogged with mud or dirt. Furthering driver comfort, the new throttle and brake pedals have been optimized for comfort, while a new strategically-designed brake master cylinder cover helps keep the mud and water off the driver’s feet.

Automotive-Style Soft Touchpoints

Featuring the most automotive-style driver and passenger soft touchpoints in its class, the Wolverine RMAX2 1000 provides a more relaxed experience even over rough terrain. The steering wheel and passenger handhold have the best shape and soft-touch in the market while providing a quality feel way beyond the competitors’ hard plastic. Additional comfort points have been strategically placed in locations where knees and arms frequently contact interior components.

Versatile Cargo Bed

The Wolverine RMAX2 1000 features a 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 steel tiedown points to secure cargo or attach accessories. Add in a full 2,000 pounds of towing capacity through a standard 2-inch receiver, and the Wolverine RMAX2 1000 is ready to get to work when you are.

Protective Suntop

For extra comfort and protection, the suntop is engineered to keep the sun and other elements off the occupants as much as possible, while offering the ultimate in accessory incorporation with integrated sealing surfaces and mounting points for a variety of Yamaha Genuine Accessories.

Maximum Storage

Large storage optimized to provide protection from the elements, the Wolverine RMAX2 1000 features a sealed 2.7L center console, a 5.5L sealed glove box, and center console cubbies. Both occupants can also quickly access their belongings with driver and passenger storage shelves containing secure rubber mats to keep items in place and two easy-to-reach cup holders.

Stealthy LED Lights

New stealthy, advanced LED headlights provide a wide beam pattern to provide more confidence-inspiring nighttime driving and light the way while you REALize Your Adventure in low-light situations. The 7.6W LED mono focus low beam keeps the trail visible in normal conditions while the 15.2W LED reflector-type high beam is used in darker conditions. New LED marker lights showcase the Wolverine RMAX2 1000’s unique, sleek style. The integrated LED taillight, brake light and reverse light keep you visible on the trail and enhances visibility when backing up.
