2013 Yamaha Rhino

Doesnt anyone anywhere have any info on whats to come for 2013? A new Yamaha Rhino with more power, A Polaris XP that can haul more than 60lbs of tounge weight and fit more than a cooler for storage or anything new from Can Am. Someones got to have more info than whats out there. Is yamaha gonna stick it to us again and just change the color? Its time for something new from yamaha, the competion is passing them up by far. Give up some info if youve heard anything?

my very credible source said that it'll be a 1,000cc v-twin available in 4 and 2 seat configuration. EPS, EFI, about 58" wide with a "mid-travel" stance that still accomodates trail riding and such. MSRP is going to be around 15-17k depending on model choice. Also, they'll keep producing 700 rhino. Top speed estimated around 70+ with potential fora bit more.

oh wait nevermind, i was just dreaming. Looks like the 2013's will include "bold new graphics" and thats all

2011 Yamaha Rhino Sport
JBS Sheave 16gr OD weights/ Orange Spring
2D MSD Charge with Bazazz fuel controller
Rhino Stage II cam
Dual Muzzy's w/ whisper cores
27 XTR's on 14" ITP's, 2" CFM Lift

If there are no major improvements since '08 it makes me happy, because I have an '08 and don't need to think about buying the latest and greatest Rhino.

I also have an 08 rhino but its so slow. Its my second rhino and Ive had enough. I need more power. I'm worried about buying an unreliable sxs from another company. My yamahas been good but its had its share of problems. I recently had to do a reverse gear update, which meant splitting the engine case. I didnt take too long but I couldnt imagine what that would have cost to get that done at a shop. So Im not sure if the others will have more problems than a rhino.
Doesnt yamaha release their new offroad lineups in June usually?

I thought I heard somewhere the lawsuits were settled, and they were continuing production. I could be wrong though.

lawsuits are slowly being overturned in yamahas favor like they should be....production of the current model is still ongoing-a performance sxs wont be made anytime soon by any japanese manufacturers-mark my word!

It would be nice to see Yamaha come out with something new but I don't think it will happen in the near future....

There is "reverse gear update" or did it just break? 4600 miles on my '08 with no repairs, although I keep thinking I should pull the machined sheave apart and look at the belt and weights and stuff-- I've gone about 4000 miles since the upgrade.

Well pulling out a Chevy Avalanche in sugar sand in reverse probably wasnt a good idea but yes it did break. All it is are these clips on either side of the gear and they pop loose because the bushing in the gear starts to fail. The reverse kit is simple, spacers instead of clips and a bearing instead of a bushing.

The smartest thing to do if you are looking for a high-performance SxS is to do the SV or R1 swap. It keeps the factory frame and many of the factory components while giving you anywhere from 4-6x more power, for less than you'd pay for a new 2012 XP.

I think Yamaha is out of the game for a while to come, but Polaris is soon to follow

the one thing i like about the rhino though is they are cheap enough you can pick up a used one and build whatever you want

From a Reliable Source (my Dealer & friend), Yamaha has won all of their Legal matters, and no more of the same matters can be brought up. Yamaha has big plans to progress within the next year or 2, bringing themselves back to the top slot of the Side by Sides. Including a 4 seat Rhino 950CC

I purchased my 2012 Rhino 700 in October, and already have 3,000 miles on it. It is used as my OPDMD (Other Power-Driven Mobility Device), as described by the ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act), in other words, it is my Power Wheel Chair, enabling me to operate it almost anywhere, Roadways, Bike paths, Sidewalks, anywhere you can use a Mobility Aid. It is my everyday Car, and not even legal to register it within NYS, but I use it here daily.

I got good and bad news. Bad news I got rid of the rhino for a commander. Good news for everyone else since I couldn't wait anymore yamaha will surely bring out something bigger than the 700 with powersteering this year! But I held out last year and nothing....
