Powered by a 348cc four-stroke single cylinder engine with exceptional torque and strong mid-range power, the Warrior has been widely recognized as one of the best four-stroke ATVs in its class. Equipped with an engine counter balancer for smooth operation and rider comfort on extended rides, the 2000 Warrior features a six-speed transmission with reverse that can be engaged from any gear and a convenient electric start system. The Warrior also features a 36mm Mikuni carburetor with a butterfly valve for low RPM torque and strong mid-range pulling power. The Warriors snorkel air intake helps keep its engine churning even through mud or shallow water.
The front suspension features a sophisticated pre-load adjustable double A-arm design while the rear is made up of a rising rate linkage-type single-shock suspension complete with a gas-charged shock with remote reservoir and adjustable rebound damping. Braking and traction are handled by lightweight, durable aluminum wheels, aggressive knobby tires and powerful front and rear hydraulic disc brakes.
Designed for the weekend rider who wants to explore, the Warrior has nearly eight adjustable inches of performance-inspired suspension to tackle even the most challenging terrain. Sturdy rock guard protectors and tubular frame shield the 30 watt Halogen headlights from rocks and debris while rugged skid plates shield the rear brake and sprocket.
The 2000 Warrior comes in your choice of two eye-catching color schemes, Yellow/Black and Team Yamaha Blue/White, and is now available at Yamaha dealers nationwide. Manufacturers suggested retail price is $4,949 (US).

The Blaster pairs low price with a high-fun factor wrapped up in a lightweight and durable chassis. Known for its responsiveness, the Blasters quick-revving 195cc air-cooled two stroke engine with a close ratio six-speed transmission and manual clutch offers recreational riders a great value in off-road riding.
Yamahas double wishbone front suspension and single shock/swingarm rear suspension offer more than seven inches of travel and give the Blaster its comfortable ride. Both the front and rear suspensions also benefit from preload-adjustable shocks for fine tuning to different riding conditions.
Effective braking is obtained by dual front drum brakes and a self adjusting disc in the rear. For convenient maintenance the Blaster features Yamahas reliable Autolube Oil Injection system, which eliminates premixing of oil and gas.
The 2000 Blaster comes in sharp looking color schemes, Red/White and Team Yamaha Blue/White, and is currently available at Yamaha dealers nationwide. Manufacturers suggested retail price is $2,999 (US).
