Yamaha Introduces XT-R Models for 2020 ATV & Side-by-Side Lineup

Yamaha has rolled out its 2020 lineup of side-by-sides and ATVs, nearly all of which can now be had with the new XT-R package.

Opting for an XT-R will get you upgraded tires, a WARN winch, advanced suspension, new painted Titanium Bronze / Tactical Black color scheme, and more depending on which unit you buy.

Interested buyers can add the XT-R package to the 2020 Wolverine X2 & X4, YXZ1000R and YXZ1000R SS, 2020 Grizzly, Kodiak 450 Special Edition and the Viking VI and Viking. We will go over the changes to each model below.

2020 Wolverine X2 & X4

New A-arms to increase suspension travel have been added on the Wolverine models which can also now accommodate same-size tire setups. Opting for a Wolverine XT-R will get you GBC Dirt Commander radial tires, increased ground clearance, a WARN VRX 4500 winch and KYB piggyback shocks.

The 2020 Wolverine X4 in Yamaha Blue starts at $16,099, and with aluminum wheels in Alpine White the price climbs to $16,449. Realtree Edge models sell for $16,899, while the XT-R models both start at $15,999.

2020 YXZ1000R and YXZ1000R SS

Not much has changed for the YXZ in 2020 besides the addition of the XT-R model, which brings along all the Special Edition upgrades including Maxxis Carnage 8-ply tires, centerline pod lights, a custom front grab bar, a Warn VRX 4500 winch, a suntop and contrasting stitching in the seats.

Base models sell for $18,999, while the Special Editions go for $20,699. Bumping up to the XT-R model will set you back $21,699.

2020 Yamaha Grizzly

The 2020 Grizzly XT-R gets some beefy upgrades including 27-inch Maxxis Zilla tires, painted bodywork, a WARN Pro Vantage 2500 winch and it arrives pre-wired for the Adventure Pro GPS system.

Pricing for the Grizzly XT-R starts at $10,999.

2020 Yamaha Kodia 450 SE

The smaller Yamaha Kodiak 450 doesn’t get the XT-R package like the bigger models, but there is one major upgrade here: fully locking differentials. Previous to this, the Kodiak 450 couldn’t be had with lockers.

The new Special Edition model also brings along a Warn Pro Vantage2500 winch and premium alloy wheels.

Pricing for the Kodiak 450 begins at $7,599 while the Special Edition model goes for $7,999.

2020 Yamaha Viking

Finally we have the workhorse of the lineup, the Yamaha Viking. For 2020 there is a new Ranch Edition that includes new Copperhead Orange Metallic paint, a color-matched interior, under-seat storage, cast-aluminum wheels, overfenders, a rear grab bar and Ranch Edition badging.

Basic Viking models will sell for $11,999, while EPS-equipped models (including a Suntop and aluminum wheels) will go for $13,499.
