I'm looking to buy a rmax4 to Finland which has proven to be a difficult task. They haven't sold any to a whole country before, so every salesperson I've spoken with seem to be totally lost about what they are selling.
I was originally looking for a special edition model, but apparently there aren't any in whole of Europe and they couldn't tell whether it'd be 6 months or two years to get one here. Frankly that doesn't matter that much since tje price has risen quite a lot for this year. There is one in Europe they are giving me an offer for and it is named: YAMAHA Wolverine RMax4 1000 TB Bluish Gray Soli 2022. They say that it's this:

Tire Wheel Land vehicle Vehicle Automotive tire


But that doesn't seem like Bluish Gray to me. When googling that model identifier, I got the 2023 LE model pictures.. The TB part is also unclear to me.

Besides the color, I would appreciate it if someone could tell me what the differencies were between that model above (basic one i guess) and the SE one. They first told me that there was only a colour difference, but admitted I was right when I told the base model lacked a winch. Did the SE include illuminated button backgrounds on the dashboard for example.

Is it just me or do you find spending 35K with this amount of info a little sketchy?

Browse this site. It is the American versions , but should help you understand the difference between the two.

Yes the LE has more options , including a radio , winch , on the fly shock adjustment , lighting , bumper , tires ,ect...

If its such an issue getting whole machines, I would bet parts would be terrible to get. The XTR model has almost the same features as an LE, but the on the fly shock adjustment is not on the XTR. I've not ever had it, but I would think if something happened to that system, it would be tough to get parts for you. The color is different of course, but I think it's a good blend of creature comforts and usability.

Looking at that yamaha motorsports pages linked above, it seems that the main differencies they are selling the xtr (SE?) edition are winch better tires and color. When looking in to details they say that XTR also had adventure pro and indoor lighting. I don't care about the adventure pro, but the lighting would have been nice.

Then there are some things that had me wondering:

Font Terrestrial plant Event Circle


The base model doesn't have the three way drive mode switch. I found out that it can be added later easily. And are there any other switches that are missing on the base model?

Font Terrestrial plant Event


Here are couple of things. If I add the switch afterwards, is it communicating with those ultramatic and on-command systems (are they there)? And it says xtr's frame is strengthened. Is it strengthened compared to a base model or some other model?

Then the front bumper seemed to be different too.

Fuck this shit, it's too difficult to compare these and I guess it has been done on purpose too..

Everything on the the XTR and LE can be added to the base.

XTR gets you different seat materiel (at least here in the US), interior accent lighting (it's on all the time), winch, D mode switch, different tires (same size as the base but a different brand), a different front bumper, back lighted switches, and the Advernture pro.

LE gets everything the XTR has plus shift on the fly shocks and a radio.

The frame is the same between all models. D mode switch is plug and play. All you need is the switch, everything else is already there in the base to make the switch work.

Thank you sir! You're a life saver.

Your welcome. Yamaha's website should let customers line all three models up and then highlight the differences to avoid confusion but they don't. I may have left one or two things out but I think I hit all the major things. Someone else may chime in with something I missed if you want to wait a little while.

Just keep in mind models sent to Europe may be different than U.S. models. That is the case here in Canada. We don’t get the AdventurePro here. When I first ordered my 2021 I assumed it was the same as the U.S version. The XTR is called an SE model here and is the same as the U.S version except for the AdventurePro. The Canadian Yamaha website has so many errors I didn’t know exactly what I was going to get. Like others have said the driveline and frame are the same on all models.

Good luck with your purchase. You’ll love it.

Didn't you guys get the XTR seat upholstery on the base model too?

No. Maggot got an upholstered upper portion of the seat on a base model. The base of his seat wasn’t. I assumed it was either a shortage or an error at the factory. My dealer just got my 2023 Rspec in and it doesn’t have upholstered seats. It appears to be exactly the same as the US model.

Maybe one day in my lifetime I’ll be able to go to a dealer and actually see all the different models in stock. :)

With my recent experience with Yamaha's customer support I would stay as far away from Yamaha as possible. I live here in the U.S. and can't get parts for my machine, I can't imagine the lack of support you'll get in a foreign country. While the machine seems to perform ok when new there are definitely some weak areas that for over $30K should not exist. If I could afford to get rid of mine without losing my a$$ I would. I'll probably end up keeping it till my YES warranty has a year left then sell it and hopefully get enough to buy a Honda Pioneer 5. Maybe by then Honda will up the horsepower to near Talon levels to make it a little more sporty.

Curious , what "weak areas" are you referring
to ?
