2011 Yamaha Raptor 700R SE

Superior handling, potent big-bore
power, ultra light design. This 2011 Yamaha Raptor is ready for anything, straight
from the crate.

A stunning “Ghost Black” appearance
package is joined by a GYTR® front grab bar and heel guards.

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.

designed tread pattern deliver superb, class-leading traction for razor-sharp
