The Rhino has a powerful engine and drivetrain to back up its attractive looks. It’s powered by a powerful five-valve, SOHC, 660cc, four-stroke single-cylinder engine with a quick 42mm Mikuni carburettor and liquid/oil cooling. With all-wheel engine braking, the machine is connected to a dependable Ultramatic automatic transmission. The distinctive On-Command pushbutton system offers 2WD, 4WD, and 4WD with locking differential settings for the four-wheel-drive option.

Yamaha’s assertion that the Rhino can traverse rough terrains comparable to a 4×4 ATV is among its most fascinating features. Rhino is Yamaha’s claim that it can travel the same terrain as a 4×4 ATV. Its great approach/departure angles, as well as its adaptable IFS/IRS, are part of what makes it so capable. It has a suspension travel of 7.3 inches (more significant than some of the SUVs we test) and a ground clearance of 12.1 inches.

The Rhino is ready to work when the time comes. It includes a standard 2-inch receiver to use your pickup truck’s hitch. It has a towing capacity of 1,212 pounds. The tilting bed can hold up to 400 pounds of whatever you want to put on it.

Yamaha Rhino General Features:

  • Built-in Newnan, GA, USA.
  • Battery provides power

  • The combination of the 660cc liquid/oil-cooled, four-stroke, five-valve engine and light weight provides the finest power-to-weight ratio of any side-by-side model on the market.

  • The On-Command® In/Out 4WD feature offers three positions and is a pioneering development in the industry. It enables you to switch between 2WD, limited-slip 4WD, and fully locked differential 4WD modes with
  • a simple button press. Additionally, the dual headlights are fitted with 30-watt multi-reflector Krypton bulbs and a high/low beam option, designed in a trendy and sleek cat-eye style. The double tail/brake lights

 are 5-watt and 21-watt.

  • Large, specially designed seats are exceptionally soft and supportive for all-day driver and passenger enjoyment.


  • The Rhino’s cylinder head design, also used in the robust Grizzly 660, features a patented five-valve system that delivers exceptional low-end torque and instantaneous throttle response.
  •  The machine’s dual-range drive with reverse is unmatched in its class, offering more pulling power in low gear and improved performance in high gear compared to other vehicles, including the 4×4 side-by-side.
  • Dual-range (H/L/N/R) shift lever is located on the console.
  • A manual side cover drain expels any water that enters, and a sealed drive case is utilized to prevent water and debris from entering.
  • A complete stainless steel exhaust system with aluminium heat shields and a screen-type spark arrestor is specially designed for excellent power characteristics and low noise emission.
  • A large-capacity aluminium radiator and oil cooler with fan-assist provide maximum cooling efficiency and are mounted high in the frame for maximum protection.
  • A 42mm Mikuni CV carburettor and a high-output DC-CDI ignition system ensure incredible throttle responsiveness and engine performance.
