- A centrifugal clutch allows the CVT transmission to maintain constant belt tension for longer wear and improved throttle response in low-rpm situations.
- Our Rhinos were heavily seasoned with accessories from the Yamaha catalog that geared for toting guns along for the ride.
- Ground clearance is a respectable 12.1 inches which make it easy to straddle debris without smashing it up. A-arm guards and underbelly protection provide some level of security for when it can’t be avoided.
- The Rhino is assembled at Yamaha's YMMC factory in Newnan, Georgia.
- Top speed is moderate compared to some sport UTVs and the Rhino won’t win many drag races.
- The 75.2-inch wheelbase allows it to be very nimble, easily navigating tight washes as we explored from one shooting range to another.
- The Tactical Special Edition feels light on its feet and can switch quickly from 2WD to 4WD with the push of a button.
- The soft, cab-mounted double rifle carrier ($99.99) is a great option for keeping high-dollar guns from rattling around.
- The new Tactical Black Special Edition Rhino is based on the fast growing tactical enthusiast trend.
- Ergonomics are comfortable for our 5'11" driver, but has limited adjustability.
- It was a perfect setup for patrolling through one of Gunsite’s low-speed drive-and-shoot simulations.
- Gunsite Academy is a 2000-acre tactical and defensive training facility located in Paulden, Arizona.
- Ruger has jumped into the AR market with its own two-stage piston platform, the SR-556 Autoloading Rifle.
