2014 Yamaha Raptor 700R SE Presently Available
text size: A- A+
The 2014 Yamaha Raptor 700R SE boasts a special graphics kit and brings GGYTR front grab bar and limited edition heel guards. This US-made off-road machine is powered by the acclaimed 686cc injected engine which delivers consistent performance regardless of temperature, humidity or altitude.
A manual 5-speed gearbox with reverse harnesses the power and torque of the engine and sends it to the rear axle by means of an O-ring chain with an easy-to-use eccentric adjustment system. The hybrid aluminium-steel frame and cast swingarm provide the right balance of stiffness and lightweight construction, while neatly accommodating the long-travel piggyback shocks and the race-specced inner rolled rims.
Riding ergonomics are top-notch as the seat is long and provides the right amount of support while providing just enough room for side-to-side shifting for sporty riding styles. Add in powerful Krypton multi-reflector headlights for riding in low-light conditions and the nifty $8,799 (€6,720) price tag, and there you go: looks and brawn in the same great package.
