We had a chance to spend a few days riding the 2017 Yamaha Wolverine R-Spec in the tight woods of Georgia and came away impressed at this UTV’s capabilities.
If there is one thing that we have here in Georgia it is tight trails and some unmolested mountainsides to venture through. We found the Yamaha Wolverine is a great tool for doing just that. Over a period of four days we had the chance to get to know this 708cc single cylinder powered off road vehicle as it was meant to be used. Our testing grounds had seemingly just wide enough pine laden trails blazed throughout steep hills and rocky terrain with a mix of light mud and downed trees to add some interesting riding.

If you own a Yamaha Wolverine then you already know how nimble the 60.6-inch wide machine can be. But even with its narrow width the machine felt stable to us in many situations where other UTVs in its class might feel a bit tippy. Tucked down into the cab inside the high back semi-bolstered seating it is comfortable and the elements inside the cab gave us plenty of control within reach of the driver.
