2023 Yamaha Raptor 700 Top Features

Aggressive Style: Aggressive styling lends the Raptor 700 the menacing looks to match its impressive performance. The mighty Raptor 700 is ready to go whether the destination is the dunes, the trails or the track.

Big-Bore Power: Powered by our most potent 686cc, liquid-cooled, fuel-injected Raptor engine ever, this big-bore Sport ATV produces big torque right off idle, transitioning into a fat mid-range and monstrous top end.

Advanced Chassis: Big power and lightweight, a combination that makes any ATV rider take notice, come standard on the Raptor 700. With a hybrid steel aluminum frame, Controlled-Fill aluminum sub-frame and cast aluminum swingarm, this combination produces a super strong structure and the lightest ATV in its class.

Rider-Friendly Features: A thick comfortable seat provides excellent comfort while the dual counter balancers, electric starter and reverse gear keep things nice and civilized when needed. But when it comes time to pull the trigger, the big-bore Raptor 700 stands tall.

Advanced Suspension: The YFZ-inspired handling of the Raptor 700 is incredible to experience while blasting through the woods. Thanks to the 9.1 inches of front travel and 10.1 inches out back, the trail bumps smooth out while the rider keeps things under control. With the combination of power, solid handling and a great suspension, this machine has to be experienced to be fully appreciated.
