Yamaha 2016: Raptor 90 ATV gives kids a ‘confidence-inspiring ride’


2016-yamaha-raptor-90-1

KENNESAW, Ga. – Yamaha’s Raptor 90 for the 2016 model year is a youth ATV for riders starting at 10 years old, and it is available now for the holiday season, the OEM said.

The entry-level Raptor has styling and a sporty ride reminiscent of the Raptor 700, but at a size and performance level appropriate for younger riders and budding ATV enthusiasts. It can be a great gift for first-time riders joining the family out on the trails this holiday season, Yamaha noted.

The low-maintenance engine delivers excellent low-to-mid range performance to provide kids with an easy, confidence-inspiring ride, Yamaha added. “With Yamaha’s industry-leading reliability and durability, parents can also feel comfortable knowing their child is safe,” it said.

The Raptor 90 mounts an 89.9cc air-cooled 4-stroke SOHC engine with a continuously variable transmission (CVT) on a newly designed lightweight chassis. The CVT provides seamless acceleration with no need for shifting, and reverse gives young riders more versatility on the trail. With increased power over Yamaha’s previous Raptor 90, the new model provides sporty performance while maintaining a comfortable ride and simple operation, the OEM said.

Additional features include new front and rear suspension, new 18-inch tires with lightweight matte black wheels, a plush new seat and wider floorboards.
