2020 Yamaha lineup

Is anyone else checking the internet daily for the new lineup? Yamaha is killing me with the silence on the new vikings. If they make us wait this long and there is no changes, I am going to find a random yamaha employee and punch them in the throat.

Been checking also. 2020 ATV's are announced but no SXS's yet. Looks like the Grizzly still has the 700 motor.

Yeah I have, after the news on the quads I think we’re going to be disappointed. Can Am have given the Defender 1000 an extra 10hp.

I cant believe yamaha will be selling the same old viking again. When you can buy a defender hd10 for the same price, and almost 2 times the horsepower.

If they want to triple their market share they need to sack their head of strategy. Whoever thought a 700 single with quad tyres would be a big seller is an idiot. If the Viking didn’t have the Yamaha badge I’d say they would hardly sell any at all. They need to have a look at Polaris, they provide what the market wants, unfortunately their quality is lacking.
Yamaha need more 1000 models, even the 850 is lacking.
Hope this announcement is very soon, there are some good deals on the Defender here atm.

You hit the nail on the head. I think there banking to much on brand loyalty and this supposed big customer base of flat land owning ranchers who want there viking vi to haul around workers. You need more power Mcfly.

the viking in my opinion was designed for farmers and hunters etc where speed isn't a factor.as a hunter the viking has plenty of power for me.if you need more power the wolverine twin fills that gap.

Not if you need 3 seats. Haven’t heard many people complaining about having to much power. Plenty on here and elsewhere wishing they had more. How are the sales for the Viking? In Australia in the ads most are 2017 models, so can’t be selling that well. As a hunter who has a 1000 Commander, I don’t want another loud machine either. Cheers
