2013 Yamaha Rhino 700 FI Auto 4×4 Camo AP HD
Ultra tough and super reliable.
Yamaha popularized the side by side vehicle and our legendary Rhino still dominates when it comes to “Real World Tough”. You will be hard pressed to find another SxS that can carry and tow as much while still being able to conquer the most difficult off-road terrain situations. When it comes to reliability and go anywhere performance, the 2013 Yamaha Rhino is a proven performer with the “terrain ability” and duability to get the job done.
The Rhino boasts a powerful fuel-injected, 686cc, four-valve engine mated to Yamaha’s patented Ultramatic® transmission, complete with the simple to use “On-Command®” 4WD switching.
Comfortable bucket seats and familiar automotive-type controls make driving the Rhino as easy as it is fun. Fully independent long-travel suspension front and back, 305mm or 12″ of ground clearance and super strong four-wheel disc brakes ensure that when the terrain gets tough, the Yamaha Rhino shines.

2013 Yamaha Rhino 700 FI Auto 4×4 Camo AP HD Features and Benefits:
Big Bore Fuel Injected Engine
•686cc, liquid-cooled, SOHC, 4-valve, fuel injected, 4-stroke single is a proven performer with excellent performance and an incredible durability record
•Mikuni 41mm throttle body fuel injection provides the precise fuel/air mixture regardless of outside air temperature or altitude. Other FI benefits include crisp throttle response, choke-free cold starting, great fuel economy and reduced emissions.
•The engine’s “mid ship” location centralizes mass in the centre of the Rhino for responsive handling and great suspension performance.
•Key operated electric starting and maintenance-free transistor controlled ignition (TCI) mean fast sure starts and great engine performance at all rpms.
•Four-valve combustion chamber design maximizes breathing efficiency providing a potent combination of low-rpm torque and right-now throttle response.
•Automatic cam chain tensioner reduces mechanical engine noise and reduces maintenance.
•Lightweight “liner-less” cylinder features ceramic composite plating applied directly to the aluminum block. This is the “sleeve” or bore the piston travels in. Benefits include, reduced weight, superior heat dissipation, and reduced friction
•Lightweight forged piston rides on a carburized, chrome-moly connecting rod for great durability.
•Dual engine counterbalancers and rubber-damper engine mounts reduce vibration to a minimum for great operator and passenger comfort.
•Easy access, no tools required air box makes it simple to service the re-useable foam air filter. The air filter intake is located under the front hood and helps to reduce intake noise for even greater rider and passenger comfort. Plus it is high mounted to avoid water ingestion.
•High capacity aluminium radiator with ring-type cooling fan delivers maximum cooling efficiency even during hot slow speed work days.
•Forward mounted aluminium oil cooler maintains consistent lubricant temperatures for great engine durability. Both the main radiator and oil cooler are located high and inboard of the main frame for extra protection.
•Convenient automotive style spin-on oil filter.
•Quiet, full stainless steel exhaust system resists corrosion and features a screen-type spark arrestor to protect the environment.
Fully automatic Ultramatic™ transmission is the most advanced drive system in the ORV world. Not only is it simple to use . . . select a forward gear, step on the gas pedal and go, but it also provides downhill engine braking, reducing brake wear while also providing excellent control. The key feature of Yamaha’s exclusive Ultramatic CVT system is the V-belt is under constant tension (unlike a snowmobile CVT) and therefore provides superior no-slip right now performance, all wheel downhill engine braking and significantly reduced belt wear.
•Easy to use, console mounted “automotive style” shift lever … just like on a car.
•Fully automatic “Ultramatic” CVT (constantly variable transmission) offers reverse, neutral, high and low ranges. The low range mode improves towing power while also improving “terrain ability” in difficult conditions.
•Sealed CVT belt case keeps out water and debris to help prevent belt slippage and wear. Convenient no tools required belt case drain plug … just in case.
•CVT cooling ducts (intake and exhaust) are high-mounted to help prevent water and mud from entering the system while also keeping CVT components cool. Special fan design on the primary clutch sheave also reduces CVT temperatures for extended belt life
•Straight design front and rear drive shafts provide more efficient power delivery and eliminate the need for “U” joints. The drive shafts exit on a straight line from the engine to the differentials
On Command Drive System
Servo-controlled 3 – position “On-Command” system allows you to switch between 3 drive modes including 2WD, limited-slip 4WD and fully locked 4WD (both front & rear diff locked) – all with a turn of a convenient dash mounted knob.
