2013 Yamaha Raptor 700R SE First Ride Photo Gallery

Yamaha continues to crank out some of the best sport quads in the industry. We sample its latest premium all-around ATV in the 2013 Yamaha Raptor 700R SE First Ride.

The Raptor’s suspension is great for play riding and delivers a plush and very forgiving ride. It’s great for someone who wants to ride without discomfort from hitting bumps all-day.
With its wide track, low stance and live-axle style rear end the Raptor stays planted in the turns.
Power. The Raptor has plenty at its disposal. The engine also purrs like a kitten and has a nice tough sounding exhaust note.
The Yamaha Raptor 700R SE is priced at $8799 for 2013.
The front end of the Raptor has been updated and there is more room at the controls due to a forward location shift of the front fenders.
For 2013, Yamaha has shifted the Raptor’s final assembly from Japan to its U.S. factory in Newnan, Georgia.
With its short wheelbase the Yamaha Raptor has the agility of a much smaller quad.
