Consumers Digest Names Five Yamaha ATVs to Best Buy List

Featuring the best power-to-weight ratio among sport ATVs, the 686cc fuel-injected engine and overall performance of the 2012 Yamaha Raptor 700R impressed the Consumers Digest team in a variety of terrain.  Also noted was that the 700R can be customized with a choice of 11 different graphic options at no additional charge, which is an industry first.  The 700R Special Edition was selected as a Best Buy for its addition of a wave-type rear disc and unique graphics to the 700R’s design.

Earning its second Best Buy award since 2008, the 2012 Yamaha Raptor 250 was commended for producing the kind of performance that riders might expect from a higher-end model.  Consumers Digest cited the Raptor 250’s light weight and low seat height as features that help make it “… a fun machine for riders, regardless of their size.”  The 2011 Raptor 250R also received a Best Buy for the addition of upgraded shocks, LED taillight and adjustable front-brake lever to the 250’s construction.

“Yamaha has injected real world value into the all-new Grizzly 300 and offers class-leading performance throughout our Raptor line of sport ATVs, and we couldn’t be more proud to have an impartial, third party like Consumers Digest recognize this with Best Buy awards,” said Steve Nessl, marketing manager for Yamaha’s ATV/SxS group.  “Receiving a Best Buy is exciting, but earning five Consumers Digest Best Buy nods this year in both utility and sport ATV categories is a unique and exclusive honor that symbolizes Yamaha’s dedication to excellence and leadership in the ATV industry.”

INNOVATIVE JK HYBRID STUBBY

The JK Hybrid Stubby features a thick plate steel center with an integrated winch mount. Two steel end caps with integrated fog light mounts help further protect the winch, partially encasing it - but the real success of this design lies in the fact that these end caps are removable, offering plenty of clearance to easily install or remove the winch. Mount your fairlead to the outside and the result is an easy-to-install winch protection system. Best of all, The JK Hybrid Stubby weighs in at a mere 40lbs! How's that for not bogging you down?

This winch bumper is a true stubby. Utilizing the JK's factory bumper mounts and tow hooks, it spans no further than the frame horns and rests below the radiator shroud. Install this bumper and immediately gain greater tire clearance and better approach angles. And with it's sleek Carbon Black Powder coat and aggressive looks, The Hybrid Stubby is prepared to withstand the elements while generating a lot of head-turning on the trails. Be ready to answer a lot of curious cruisers' questions, especially when you tell them it retails for only $229.95. For '12 model JK's a Brake Canister Relocation Bracket is required for installation and is available for $12.95.
