Yamaha states, the Raptor 700’s power, combined with an advanced, lightweight hybrid steel and aluminum frame, controlled-fill aluminum subframe, and cast aluminum swingarm, results in a durable, rigid structure, offering a premier power-to-weight ratio while beating the competition as the lightest ATV in its class. Superior handling enhances the 2021 Yamaha Raptor 700 lineup’s incredible experience, smoothing out trail and braking bumps on account of the 9.1-inch front and 10.1-inch rear suspension travel.
Rider-friendly features, such as a thick, plush seat, dual counter-balancers, electric start, and a reverse gear, bring comfort and convenience to all day adventures on standard Raptor 700 models. Suspension on Raptor 700R models is upgraded with high- and low-speed compression and rebound adjustability. In addition, Raptor 700R SE versions are further enhanced with a GYTR front grab bar, GYTR footwells (select models), and unique color and graphic kits.
