It seems Yamaha was making a point when it chose the location for its 2014 Yamaha Viking 700 press event – the Viking is a machine made for real working men and women.

The sun comes up in Ten Sleep, Wyo., hiding a big sky full of stars. Before the rooster can crow, farm hands at Red Reflet Ranch are scurrying around getting cattle rustled up, horses fed and pivot irrigation arms running to start the day. The fields are rich for harvest and the Elk are bugling off in the distance as if to let the workers know they will be along soon to chew on the alfalfa they work so hard to grow. The red dirt reflects in the water of a small pond down below us and it seems like the sheer mountain cliffs are on fire. A cool breeze blows out of the west and groups of Mule deer wander around the Chalet where I am standing. This working cattle ranch is where the new 2014 Yamaha Viking was presented to us.

Eps

I have been in some tight spots with 28's on my Viking and the EPS is awesome! Definitely will always have EPS on my vehicles. Worth the money.

no video?! :(

"The Viking, in our humble opinion, is built primarily for the working- and service-oriented customer or hunter who needs a reliable work-ready heavy hauler yet likes the ease of getting into tight areas."

I think thats what most buyers are looking for.

It works well for recreation as well. Very well in my opinion - for the price

Great all rounder.

so far thats what im hearing about it, one of the best bang for your buck UTV's for what it was built for. Never seen anyone complain about it enough to discourage people from getting one

Ok i picked a viking up a few weeks ago. I went out with a friend thathas a ranger xp900. First off, it has that yamaha feel to it. The way it engages and handles. Its niiice. There isso much room in the cab. It drives like a tank in low, and has a sporty feel in high. Its loud there is no devider between the seats and the engine. No heat issues. After half of the trip we switched for a bit. You sit so upright in the ranger. It feels like you are over the front wheels while driving. But it takes off like a race car. I think the ranger owners like the yamaha ride better, but beat around the bush. So its really preference. And power steering rocks.

Great review, mine does not have power steering, but love it anyways!! I had a Polaris i sold to get back to Yamaha, which i had always had till i tried Polaris, that was my first and will be the LAST product i ever get from Polaris. Yamaha Rocks!!! The Polaris was soooooooooo noisey/rattles/buzzes, it was unbearable. The Yamaha feels so well made, quiet, except for the engine. No annoying rattles, etc....well, other than the squeaky breaks, started out with just the front drivers side brake, not they all do it.
