The 2023 Yamaha Viking EPS is a true three-passenger utility SxS with On-Command 4WD and extensive cargo capacity.
2023 Yamaha Viking EPS TOP FEATURES:
Torquey 700- Class Engine: The Viking EPS comes equipped with Yamaha’s powerful 686cc engine featuring a broad, usable powerband that’s perfect for working hard or playing hard. Liquid-cooling provides consistent performance, and the four-valve head with 10.0:1 compression delivers optimum torque for virtually any workload.
High Volume Intake: The Viking EPS features a large-capacity air intake system that improves overall engine performance. The air cleaner box is easily accessible from inside the cabin for convenient serviceability.
Responsive and Reliable Ultramatic® Transmission: Ultramatic® transmission with dual-range (Hi/Lo) drive and reverse is the most advanced drive system available. An automatic centrifugal clutch maintains constant belt tension for reduced wear, and the system features a sprag clutch for all-wheel downhill engine braking in 4WD mode and reverse. Backed by Yamaha’s unmatched 10-Year Belt Warranty, owners can be confident they’re driving the most trusted transmission in the industry.
On-Command® 4WD: Industry-exclusive three-position On-Command® 4WD system lets you switch between 2WD, limited-slip 4WD and fully locked differential 4WD. Unlike competitors’ automatic 4WD systems, On- Command® puts the driver in full control to make the most of available traction in various types of terrain.
Comfortable Three-Seat Cabin: This true three-passenger machine achieves driver and passenger comfort and security with a handhold, padded headrests and three point seat belts for all riders. Extensive noise and vibration reduction measures provide a smooth and quiet ride. The superior seating position, adjustable driver’s seat and an offset middle seat all provide unmatched comfort that riders will appreciate.
Extensive Cargo Capacity: The chassis design includes a convenient pass-through floor for greater ease of movement, making it possible to enter and exit the vehicle from either side. The rear cargo bed is made of steel and is designed for a hefty load capacity of 600 pounds.
2023 Yamaha Viking EPS FEATURES & BENEFITS:
Service Accessibility: The engine is located under the cargo bed and can be easily accessed when the bed is lifted. Center hood access for battery and other electrical components eases maintenance. Underseat, tool-free air filter is a snap to service.
Roomy, Comfortable Cabin: Padded head rests are included, and the middle seat is set back for both driver and passenger comfort. The pass-through floor provides ease of movement for getting in and out of the vehicle from either side, while a standard suntop keeps passengers covered.
Digital Instrumentation: Digital instrument panel boasts multi-function LCD display with speedometer, odometer, dual trip meters, hour meter, 4WD status, transmission position, clock and a fuel gauge.
Underbody Protection: Steel skid plate under the frame helps assist the Viking EPS from getting stuck and provides protection from rocks, logs and ruts.
Cabin Storage: The Viking EPS is equipped with a latching glove to store smaller items, and also includes four in-dash cup holders for passenger convenience.
Big Fuel Tank: A large 9.7-gallon fuel tank allows for extended journeys.
Built Real World Tough®, Assembled in the USA: As with other Yamaha Side-by-Sides and full-size ATVs, the Viking EPS is assembled in the USA to meet Yamaha’s exacting standards for durability and reliability.
Electric Power Steering: Yamaha’s proven, industry-leading Electric Power Steering (EPS) system on the Viking EPS offers excellent handling over various types of terrain, with lower steering effort for reduced fatigue after a long day in the field or on the trail.
Excellent Ground Clearance: A maximum 11.8-inch ground clearance enhances terrainability and aids underbelly protection. The Viking EPS’ width also helps minimize 30-inch row crop damage.
Powerful All-Wheel Disc Brakes: Large diameter front and rear wheel disc brakes provide excellent stopping power, and the dash-mounted parking brake is simple and convenient to use with a buzzer to notify the driver if the parking brake is accidentally left engaged.
Hefty Towing Capability: Standard center-mounted, heavy-duty 2-inch receiver-style hitch can tow up to 1,500 pounds.
Convenient Cargo Bed: Stamped steel dump bed is rated to haul 600 pounds of gear and features tie-down hooks to ensure cargo is strapped down securely. The cargo bed can also be unlatched and tilted from either side as needed. Bed rails have integrated mounting points to make installing Yamaha Genuine Accessories that much easier.
Rubber Cargo Bed Mat: A rubber cargo bed mat further reduces noise and vibration while improving durability and providing extra holding power for cargo.
Torquey 700-Class Engine: The Viking EPS comes equipped with Yamaha’s powerful 686cc engine featuring a broad, usable powerband that’s perfect for working hard or playing hard. Liquid-cooling provides consistent performance, and the four-valve head with 10.0:1 compression delivers optimum torque for virtually any workload.
Yamaha Electronic Fuel Injection: Electronic Fuel Injection ensures peak performance in nearly all conditions and elevations, along with instantaneous cold starts and smooth throttle response.
Efficient Intake System: Large-capacity air intake system contributes to the engine’s overall power development. An air injection system burns uncombusted elements in the exhaust, resulting in reduced emissions.
Clean-Running Drive Case: The specially designed drive system air intake helps prevent overheating and assists in keeping water and debris from entering the drive case.
Gated Shifter: Convenient dash-mounted gated shift lever (L/H/N/R) provides simple Ultramatic® transmission operation.
