For 2010 the Yamaha Raptor 700R SE will come standard with Pro Armor nerf bars, bumper and aluminium radiator cover.

The Raptor 700 R SE adds a few special touches to the already class leading Raptor.

Along with the super high performance piggy-back clicker shocks with high and low speed compression damping adjustments, for 2010 the Raptor 700R SE will come standard with Pro Armor nerf bars, bumper and aluminium radiator cover.

Truly a lightweight big-bore sport ATV, with an engine designed for torque, and a chassis designed to rail corners. Inspired by the YFZ, the Raptor 700 R has many of the race bred features developed from years on the track, with a little extra comfort built in.

It’s more comfortable, has more leg room, and with all that torque, you aren’t searching for gears every corner. So if you’re looking for the ultimate sport ATV, and spend most of your time on the trails, look no further. The Raptor 700 R… let them eat YOUR dust.
