US Built FOR the first-time in its eight year history the Yamaha Raptor 700R sees a production shift from Japan to Yamaha’s U.S. manufacturing facility in Newnan, Georgia.
Many of its utility quads, Rhino side-by-sides and Personal Watercraft have been assembled Stateside for quite some time but 2013 marks the birth of the American-built Raptor.
Yamaha’s Raptor 700R is built to take on pretty much any conditions, and the 686cc fuel-injected single cylinder engine makes this the most powerful sport ATV ever, with big torque right off idle, transitioning into a fat midrange and monstrous top end.
It sports a hybrid steel and alloy frame which is the lightest ATV in its class.
Your Raptor might not have the same sticker kit as the one in the pic but it will be Born In The USA. [custom name=”news_byline” value=”n”]
