Room for Six in the Viking VI

Grab your wife, two sons, your brother, and his friend and climb comfortably into the new Yamaha Viking VI side-by-side. This expanded cab model can comfortably take you and five passengers wherever you need to go on the farm or out for an off-road adventure.

Built off the Yamaha Viking platform introduced last year, the Yamaha Viking VI is designed to give you the ultimate balance between comfort and utility.

“Yamaha’s latest all-new Side-by-Side, the Viking VI, is a comfortable, convenient, tough, and off-road capable vehicle, and we expect to see it working ranches and hauling hunters from Texas to California, Oregon to Pennsylvania, and everywhere in between,” said Steve Nessl, Yamaha. “The Viking VI is the natural evolution of a platform and concept that has captured awards, praise, and market share since we launched the initial Viking last summer.”

Built for comfort
When Yamaha designed the original Viking, the company wanted to have a true three-person machine – a machine that could comfortably and securely seat three passengers. The Viking VI incorporates the same characteristics for a six-person UTV that is comfortable for every rider – even the passenger in the middle, back seat.

Built on a new frame, the Viking VI chassis features six bucket seats with three-point seat belts and headrests. The middle seats are reclined 5° to give occupants more shoulder room while handholds and foot rests ensure each passenger feels secure.

Viking operators will appreciate the automotive-style driver position with dash-mounted controls, an adjustable driver seat, and a full digital display panel with speedometer, odometer, trip meters, and fuel level. Additional cab conveniences include eight cup holders, multiple storage areas, and two DC power outlets.

Complementing cab comfort is the ride itself, which is smooth with an extended wheelbase that helps minimize bumps, optimized all-wheel independent suspension with 8.1 inches of travel, and strong hydraulic disc brakes that provide solid stopping power.

Made to work
Comfort is an essential component of a quality utility vehicle, but you also need a machine that will work just as hard as you do. With 600-pounds hauling and 1,500-pounds towing capacity, the Viking VI promises to do just that.

The steel cargo bed holds a full pallet and makes hauling gear easy with standard tie down hooks and one-touch tilt assist. A two-inch receiver hitch can easily tow trailers to distant fields and hard to reach pastures. Plus, the extended width of the Viking allows you to drive through most fields without damaging crops.

Off-road capabilities
The hardworking spirit of the Viking continues with its off-road capabilities, made possible with the Ultramatic transmission, On-Command four-wheel drive, and electric power steering (EPS).
