The upgrades are all about style and comfort for this year’s Viking and Viking VI side-by-side (SxS) vehicles from Yamaha Motor Corp., USA.
For 2016, along with a new premium Ranch Edition Viking VI, all Viking and Viking VI models receive multiple updates including a smoother, quieter cabin, additional rider conveniences and a reinforced chassis.
The new 2016 Viking VI EPS Ranch Edition features high-quality copper metallic painted bodywork with a color-matched brown interior and soft sun top, silver cast aluminum wheels, rearview center mirror, mud flaps, overfenders, underseat storage, a rear bed grab bar, a heavy duty front brush guard and unique Ranch Edition badging.
“The 2016 Viking and Viking VI side-by-sides are already in production and arriving at dealerships nationwide,” said Steve Nessl, Yamaha’s ATV/SxS group marketing manager. “With the added comfort, increased convenience and an all-new Viking VI Ranch Edition, we know the success and enthusiasm towards the Viking and Viking VI will continue to grow in the utility, hunting and farming communities.”
The 2016 model year updates include new automotive-style two-stage door latches and a parking brake warning buzzer. Noise and vibration reduction features include new rubber damper plates, a more rigid chassis, additional sound dampening materials and an all-new cylinder head torque rod for a more relaxing ride quality at any engine RPM. The newly reinforced rear steel cargo bed incorporates mounting points on the bed rails and a rubber cargo bed mat to further reduce sound and vibration. Large enough for a fully loaded pallet, the assisted dump bed can pack up to 600 pounds of equipment and supplies. The standard two-inch receiver hitch is rated to pull 1,500 pounds.
Color options for the 2016 Viking EPS and Viking VI EPS are Hunter Green, Red and Realtree Xtra camo.
