Wolverine X2 Named Field and Stream Magazine’s Best of the Best

Top Proven Off-Road Side-by-Side for Hunting and Fishing Adventures of 2018

MARIETTA, Ga. – December 17, 2018 – Yamaha Motor Corp., USA, has earned the 2018 Field and Stream Magazine Best Hunting and Fishing Gear of 2018 honor for the Wolverine X2 Side-by-Side (SxS).

“The perfect hunting rig needs to be roomy enough to carry a couple of hunters and all their gear, powerful enough to get them into hard-to-reach places, and quiet enough to not send deer bolting in every direction,” wrote Field and Stream contributor Rick Sosebee. “The new Yamaha Wolverine X2 does all that, with a killer warranty and a surprising extra that’s perfect for the outdoorsman.”

Named the top off-road vehicle for hunting and fishing adventures, the 2019 Wolverine X2 combines Proven Off-Road capability and confidence-inspiring performance with Real World comfort in a compact, nimble chassis to make it the ultimate trail-exploring vehicle in tight, technical terrain. It is purpose built for exploration, work, and play, featuring a comfortable two-person cab configuration, a smooth, quiet and vibration-free 847-cc twin cylinder engine, a 600-pound-rated dump bed, and 2,000-pound towing capacity. The new X2 also comes with Yamaha’s unmatched 10-year CVT belt warranty – an industry exclusive. 

“The Wolverine X2 offers the ultimate off-road adventure package, combining Yamaha’s industry-leading durability and reliability in a compact and nimble chassis,” said Steve Nessl, Yamaha’s motorsports group marketing manager. “The Wolverine X2’s Proven Off-Road design gives it the best balance of capability, comfort and confidence in real world environments to suit the needs of everyone from seasoned trail-goers to first-time adventure-seekers, earning its spot among Field and Stream’s best outdoor products of 2018.”

Every Yamaha SxS is assembled at Yamaha’s U.S. factory in Newnan, Georgia, for worldwide distribution.
