We gonna have fun now! Yamaha’s hotrod sxs, the YXZ1000R SS , just got a little help from the two wheeled side of the business. Utilizing the Yamaha’s YCC-S (chip control) found in Yamaha’s ride by wire technology portfolio for motorcycles, the off-road vehicle will get paddle shifters to allow for shifting without a clutch. It is a class first for the segment and just to speed things up a little more there is a launch assist system with the paddle shift. Watch Yamaha’s video on how the new YXZ1000R SS doesn’t seem to go slow here.
