– 2011 Yamaha Raptor 700R
2011 Yamaha Raptor 700R
The big bore sport ATV leader boasts an FI 686cc engine, terrain-taming suspension and digital instrumentation.
Superior handling, potent big-bore power, ultra light design… The 2011 Yamaha Raptor 700R is up to the challenge.
Designed to dominate any terrain, the Raptor 700R draws power from the most potent big-bore engine ever – 668cc of liquid-cooled fuel-injected power.
The jaw dropping power is complemented by an ultra light design in the form of a hybrid chassis with aluminum rear section. The suspension design – borrowed from our YFZ450 – delivers superior handling that’s fully up to the task, whatever the task might be. Big, broad power. Light weight. Precise handling. Yamaha reliability. That’s the Yamaha advantage.
686cc of Liquid-Cooled Fuel-Injected Power
Lightweight Hybrid Chassis
Five-Way Adjustable Preload Kayaba Suspension
” A 686cc Yamaha fuel-injected engine makes this the most powerful Yamaha sport ATV ever, with big torque right off idle, transitioning into a fat mid-range and monstrous top end.
” America’s best-selling sport ATV comes standard with a digital meter. Riders have plenty of information available at a glance, including speedometer, dual trip meters, odometer, clock and engine warning indicators, plus neutral and reverse indicators.
” Sport-tuned piggyback shocks provide long stroke for excellent sport-riding comfort, and are fully adjustable with convenient adjustment knobs to fine-tune the ride.
” Hybrid steel and aluminum frame with a Controlled-Fill aluminum subframe and cast aluminum swingarm combine to produce a super-strong structure and the lightest ATV in its class.
” Aggressive styling reflects Raptor 700R’s intent, and YFZ-inspired handling means it walks the walk, too.
” Long-travel suspension-9.1 inches front, 10.1 rear-a cush seat and excellent ergonomics make the Raptor 700R comfortable to ride hard all day long.
New for 2011:
” New inner rolled wheel’s reduce weight while maintaining strength.
” Forged lightweight piston, connecting rod and crankshaft in the 686cc engine are light and strong, for a hard-hitting, quick-revving powerplant that revs all the way to 9000 rpm. Dual counterbalancers keep it smooth.
” Yamaha Fuel Injection (YFI) means consistently excellent engine performance in a wide range of conditions, elevations and temperatures.
” Competition-spec dry-sump lubrication system boosts usable horsepower and keeps overall engine size more compact.
” Digital TCI w/16-bit electronic control unit controls fuel injection and ignition systems for consistent performance and fantastic throttle response.
” Reliable pushbutton electric start in any gear adds extra convenience.
” Race-bred five-speed transmission with reverse, along with Raptor 700R’s monstrous powerband, means there’s a choice of gears in just about all situations.
” YZ-spec ratchet shifter ensures smooth, resistance-free shifting under power. Heavy-duty clutch features extra-sturdy basket and plates designed to harness the Raptor 700R’s power.
” Easy-to-reach oil filter and tool-free air filter provide added convenience.
” State-of-the-art chassis combines a steel front section with an aluminum rear section and detachable subframe to create a super-strong structure.
” Compact, CAD-designed chassis creates the ideal wheelbase for light, quick, super-accurate steering.
” Piggyback shocks provide excellent sport-riding comfort, with high- and low-speed compression adjustability, rebound and preload adjustability, and 9.1-inch travel.
” YZ-style piggyback rear shock gives 10.1-inch wheel travel with high- and low-speed compression adjustability for maximum sport versatility, along with preload and rebound adjustment.
” Front brake master cylinder features an adjustable lever for increased comfort and feel.
” Twin aluminum-piston front disc brakes deliver tremendous stopping power. Discs are drilled, which helps reduce unsprung weight for excellent suspension compliance.
” Cast aluminum swingarm carries an eccentric quick-adjust drive chain mechanism that takes most of the work out of that task.
” Handlebar-mounted flip-type parking brake lever and rear brake caliper adjust automatically.
” High-performance 21×7-10 front and 20×10-9 rear Dunlop® radials with a specially designed tread pattern deliver superb, class-leading traction for razor-sharp handling in a variety of terrain and conditions.
” Lightweight aluminum wheels help enhance suspension performance by reducing unsprung weight.
” Race-inspired 45mm serrated footpegs provide excellent boot traction.
” Controlled-fill aluminum subframe is light and strong. So is the composite front grab bar.
” Raptor 700R features a digital meter with speedometer, dual trip meters, odometer, clock, warning indicators for coolant and low fuel, plus neutral and reverse indicators.
” Long, YZ-style seat allows maximum rider comfort and movement with superb sport-riding ergonomics.
” Multi-reflector 30-watt Krypton headlights set back in the front cowl add the perfect no-compromises sporting accent, and an LED taillight provides great visibility.
” Large-capacity, 2.9-gallon fuel tank and Yamaha Fuel Injection (YFI) mean more time on the trail between fill-ups.
” Thumb throttle lever has a smooth shape for a feel riders will appreciate, with less fatigue at the end of the day.
” Styling is sharp and aggressive.
