Yamaha has began shipping the first of its Viking side-by-side vehicles. Built in Newnan, Georgia, the Viking will be distributed from Yamaha Motor Manufacturing Corporation of America. To handle increased production, a second factory has been opened dedicated to the Viking and future Yamaha SxS models.

The Viking will be introduced in June, with models arriving to dealers this month. The durable three-seat utility vehicle offers Yamaha's most powerful four-wheel drive engine yet in a comfortable, spacious cab with precision steering and handling.

Suggested retail price of the non-EPS models start at $11,499 while EPS models go for $12,499.

Ive got Power steering on my 2011 CanAm Outlander 800 XT-P, and real nice on an atv. I had a 2010 Polaris Ranger 500 that i sold to get back to Yamaha, cause the Ranger was junk. But anways, it didnt have Power Steering, it was easy to steer, didnt need PS.

I guess cause of the wheels.
For someone that is new to side by sides and ATV's that actually hasn't been on one yet will think it's going to be tough without powersteering. I know cars without power steering are tough to drive especially when moving very slow. Once you get up to a good speed it's quite easy.

I actually heard good things about the Polaris Ranger, what issues did you have with it?

It randomly would run rough and die at idle, cranked right up, ran fine till the next time it did it. Close to 10 trips between 2 dealers. Never fixed

I try to stay away from anything polaris, seems like their build quality is poor. On all the other forums about the Polaris, all I see is people complaining.
